Photoneo MotionCam-3D

3D camera for capturing dynamic scenes

MotionCam-3D from Photoneo is the world’s highest-resolution and highest-accuracy area-scan 3D camera for capturing dynamic scenes.

Being powered by the novel, patented Parallel Structured Light technology, the camera was recognized with the IERA Award 2020, Vision Systems Design 2019 Innovators Platinum Award, Vision Award 2018, and it was listed among the inVision Top Innovations 2021 and 2019.

MotionCam-3D is the ideal 3D vision device for applications that require fast and robust 3D acquisition even in demanding industrial environments. Coming in five models (S, S+, M, M+, L), MotionCam-3D covers any kind of applications, depending on the size of the scanned object, scanning volume, and other aspects. Reconstruct accurate point clouds of various objects in a high level of detail without compromising between quality and speed.

Reasons to choose the Photoneo MotionCam-3D

Capture and high-quality 3D reconstruction of objects moving at fast speed

With two modes for scanning dynamic as well as static scenes the sensor can reach high resolution, accuracy, and level of detail with no blurry edges.

IP65 for use in industrial environment

The camera is dust-tight and protected against low-pressure jets of water coming from any direction and at any angle, and can therefore be used in demanding industrial environments.

Easy handling and integration in your system

The MotionCam-3D provides flexible powering options. Only a single cable is needed to get both electric power and data connection supporting Power over Ethernet (PoE). Alternatively, you can power your device by 24 V.

The lightweight body allows you to mount the scanner directly onto the robotic arm, which is a very handy option if you need to scan a big bin with a smaller scanner from variable viewpoints, or to get a detailed look at the bin corners.
