Pushing the boundaries of 3D vision inspection

11 March 2019

Ranger3 is high-definition 3D streaming camera is the first camera to be powered by SICK’s Imager with ROCC (Rapid On-Chip Calculation technology) which is capable of capturing 7000 profiles per second at full sensor acquisition.

The Ranger3 is able to extract the true 3D shape of an object, regardless of its contrast or colour and as a result it is said to achieve 3D measurement with unprecedented accuracy, enabling food processing, bottling and packaging operations to achieve reliable quality inspection at more rapid throughputs. 

The cameras performance on light, dark, reflective and contrasting surfaces allows for real-time inspection of several components at one time, including 3D shape and object scatter and a range of product attributes, with high throughput speeds for lower unit costs.

The ROCC technology enables faster and more precise shape, volume and position measurements even for large depths of field or height variations. By having analogue to digital conversion of the signals on the M30 CMOS sensor itself, and sending the accurate data directly to a controller or a standard PC, the ROCC process greatly increases the application possibilities for high speed 3D quality inspection.

The camera delivers a continuous stream of GigE and GenICam-compliant data with a wide variety of 2D and 3D data generation options, as well as measuring reflectance and scattered light.
