At last year’s SPS/IPC/Drives exhibition in Nuremberg, Germany, Vision Components showcased the VC nano 3D, a freely configurable, intelligent 3D vision sensor, at the joint booth of the German Engineering Federation VDMA. The proven intelligent camera VCSBC6210 nano RH forms the basis of the compact vision system, whose special feature is its suitability for both 3D and 2D inspection tasks.

It therefore provides a cost-efficient solution for a wide range of applications. Measuring merely 140 x 70 x 35 mm, its housing contains an intelligent camera and a 5 mW line laser which enables real-time 3D light section measurement at a rate of up to 400 Hz. The images can be analyzed by the sensor’s DSP processor which has a computing power of 5,600 MIPS. Additionally, images can also be analyzed by a PC like in other 3D systems.

Designed for working distances between 80 and 200 mm, measuring ranges between 12 and 120 mm, and vertical resolutions between 5 and 50 µm, twelve different VC nano 3D models cover a wide application range. For many models, Vision Components additionally offers a 100 mW laser instead of the standard 30 mW option. Several VC nano 3D types can also be equipped with an IP65 protective housing for especially demanding environments.

In all models, a freely programmable 100 Mbit Ethernet interface allows for live video output on a PC. Moreover, two digital inputs and four outputs are available for integration into existing automation environments. VC nano 3D sensors are typically used in measuring technology applications, robot guidance, completeness checks, weld inspection, split tests, the inspection of components, and the detection of codes on punched parts.
