Smart Laser Profiler With Integrated 3D Image Processing Launched

Vision Components has launched its new OEM laser profiler, VC picoSmart 3D, with integrated processors for 3D profile data analysis and further image processing tasks. The integrated VC picoSmart is the world’s smallest embedded vision system, housed on a board the size of an image sensor.

All components are designed to function together perfectly: a miniaturized embedded vision system with a 1-megapixel image sensor, an FPGA and a high-end FPU processor and a line laser module with a blue high-power laser.

The system is enclosed in a compact industrial-grade housing measuring only 100 mm x 40 mm x 41 mm and featuring a clear control panel and display. The FPGA is pre-programmed for 3D computation. The laser module, also an in-house development, operates reliably under bright ambient light up to 100,000 lux. The 130-mW laser is rated class 2.

OEMs can implement their applications with minimal effort – from position detection to measurement to adhesive bead inspection and more. The manufacturer offers company-specific sensor labeling on request. VC picoSmart 3D is ideal for fast and economic development of individual OEM 3D sensors. All components are long-term available and optimized for series production.
