Schmersal offers its 3D camera to automatically capture digital process data in real time. The AM-T100 is a time-of-flight camera (ToF camera) that produces 3D depth images with millimeter precision.
The camera uses transit time measurement of light pulses emitted in the infrared range (850 nm), which are reflected on the objects to be captured. It creates a millimeter-accurate 3D image of the scene at high speed, which is available as a point cloud. A frame rate of up to 60 fps enables effective use in industrial manufacturing processes as well as in logistics and robotics. The camera can be used to support packaging, stacking, size capture or labeling to increase the efficiency and accuracy of operations. But it can also record the filling levels of containers or large load carriers. It is also possible to determine the size of the merchandise piece and monitor the staging areas from a bird’s eye view. Other tasks include recording dimensions and surface properties. With infrared illumination and an image resolution of 640 x 480 pixels, the AM-T100 achieves a 67 x 51-degree viewing area with a range of up to 6 metres.
