C4 Series

The C4-Series consists of 3 different 3D-Sensors that feature measuring speeds of up to 71,5 kHz and an resolutions of maximal 12 Megapixel, depending on the model. The integrated C4 processor detects the height-profile of the measured surface with a sub-pixel precision of up to 1/64 of a pixel without losing speed. The data-exchange is based on a Gibabit-Ethernet interface and complies with the GigE-Vision standard. The use of this standard reduces integration efforts by the user considerably. The setup of the camera is done in a very fast and simple way per Plug & Play through the GenICam protocol.

  • Highspeed 3D-Sensors for Scans by means of Laser-Triangulation
  • Profile Speeds of up to 71,5 kHz
  • Resolutions of up to 12 Megapixel
  • Integrated 3D Profile Algorithms: MAX, TRSH, COG, FIR-PEAK
  • Precise 3D Imaging with HDR-3D-Technology
  • Sophisticated 3D-Scan Features like Automatic AOI-Tracking, Automatic AOI-Search, Autostart, Multi-AOIs, etc.
  • GigE Vision and GenICam Compliant
