C2 Series

Compact and robust 3D Sensors

The C2 models are based on a new slim design that reduces weight and size as well as the pricing. The C2 series consists of the models C2-2040-GigE and C2-2040HS-GigE which mainly differ in its measuring speed. Both models come with a high resolution of 2048 x 1088 pixels , but only in the HS-version of the C2 camera series reaches a measuring speed of up to 25 kHz. The housing is equipped with the protection class IP67 and due its easy handling and low costs, the C2 camera series is the perfect solution for a wide range of different 3D applications.
