Wide range of applications for indoor use

3D snapshot with 3vistor-T from SICK

Waldkirch, (PresseBox) - 3vistor-T 3D vision sensors from SICK offer maximum flexibility for indoor use thanks to their innovative 3D snapshot technology. The 3vistor-T provides real-time depth information for each pixel – even for stationary applications – based on time-of-flight measurement. This involves transferring all 3D raw data – or application-specific information which has already been preprocessed – in a way which has been customized to suit the respective application. High-performance visualization tools and reliable 3D information make the 3vistor-T the ideal solution in applications including intralogistics, robotics, or industrial vehicles.

The sensors are available in two different product variants. The 3vistor-T CX version is a basic 3D camera which provides high-quality 3D point clouds. The 3vistor-T AG version is a smart 3D camera. It provides both complete and reduced 3D data, depending on what you need.

Reliable and high-quality 3D data in one shot

More than 25,000 distance and intensity values are provided in a single recording. As a result, no operator is required and 3D information is also available for stationary applications. What's more, the sensor features a programmable interface which you can use to transmit data to external PCs and evaluate it there.

With its 3D time-of-flight technology, the 3vistor-T provides spatial and depth information in real time for each image – even for stationary objects. Depending on the variant, this process outputs a pure point cloud, appropriately reduced image data, or image data. With this technology, the time-of-flight of a light signal between the object and the target object is measured for each point of the image. As soon as the arrival time of the reflected light signal is known, the distance (the third dimension) between the object and the target object can be calculated.

This provides flexibility for using the 3vistor-T: As a preconfigured variant for automated guided vehicles or as a powerful 3D camera for individualized programming. The 3vistor-T can be installed quickly, is immediately ready for use, and features intuitive control.
