3D 4K Laser Line Profile Sensor For In-line Measurement

Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies company and a leader in machine vision technology, has introduced the Z-Trak LP2C 3D profile sensor family for in-line 3D measurement and inspection applications. As the latest member of the Z-Trak family, the LP2C 4K sensors deliver 4,096 samples per profile and an x resolution down to 3.5 microns, allowing customers to measure and inspect parts with tighter tolerances, and to identify smaller defects cost effectively.

Ready to use straight out of the box, Teledyne’s Z-Trak LP2C 4K sensors are factory calibrated and combine high scanning speeds with easy-to-use software tools, delivering highly repeatable and accurate height, width, and length measurements. With its compact size and simplified cabling, Z-Trak LP2C is ideal for applications in battery, automotive, factory automation, robotics, and logistics markets.

Z-Trak models are available for measurement ranges of up to 650mm and have a horizontal field-of-view of up to 1200mm. The LP2C 4K series can also handle a wide variety of surface and material types with its red and blue eye-safe lasers.

Reflection Elimination and In-Line Processing

Z-Trak LP2C features in-line processing capabilities to improve and enhance the profiles. In addition, it can generate additional metadata that up-stream algorithms can use to eliminate un-wanted reflections. Cleaner 3D scans produce accurate and dependable results.

Multi-Sensor Configuration and Unified Measurement Space (UMS)

3D inspection applications requiring 360° views, thickness measurement, an extended horizontal field of view without sacrificing the z-resolution or removing occlusion etc. require the combination of multiple profile sensors. Z-Expert, an intuitive configuration utility for the Z-Trak family of profilers, helps transform data from multiple Z-Trak profilers into a common coordination system called Unified Measurement Space. The resulting 3D data is viewed as a 3D point-cloud, mesh, or a range map image. The profiles from this 3D data can be extracted at an arbitrary angle for further measurements and analysis. The architecture of the Z-Trak profiler also enables models with different measurement ranges and laser configurations to be combined.

All Z-Trak models include a free license of Teledyne DALSA’s Sherlock 8 – a graphical programming package allowing rapid application deployment. The Z-Trak software bundle also includes Sapera LT and Sapera Processing run-time license.
