The SurfaceControl 3D 3500 by Micro Epsilon is a 3D snapshot sensor with a compact design and extremely high resolution in the Z-axis (from 1.0µm), a repeatability up to 0.4µm and a data processing speed of up to 2.2 million 3D points per second. The sensor operates on the principle of optical triangulation based on fringe projection. The system is available in two models, each offering a different measuring area and depth of field. Both models are fully integrated industrial sensors that are protected to IP67 with passive cooling (active cooling is available for higher operating temperatures). It supports the latest GigE Vision and GenICam standards for easy integration into third-party image processing software. A SDK is also provided that allows customers to develop their own analysis software.
