The new flagship for the C4 camera series from AT unites the outstanding characteristics of existing models, whilst combining high measuring speed with a mega-pixel resolution. These key features are possible thanks to the completely new design of the camera. The C4-2040-GigE stands out from other laser triangulation sensors because of its unique price-performance ratio.
The 3D sensor uses a global shutter and exposes all pixels simultaneously, producing exceptionally sharp, clear pictures. The new C4 camera also supports AT’s HDR 3D technology, where the camera’s sensor uses Multi-Slope and Multi- Frame readouts. In this way, the camera reaches a dynamic of 90 dB and even scans materials and surfaces with very inhomogeneous reflectivity properties. Additional key features for fast 3D measuring include the high light- sensitivity of the C4-2040 sensors and their high sensitivity in the NIR spectrum.
As with all C4 cameras, the new model also has a Gigabit Ethernet interface and meets the GigE Vision standard. In combination with the GenICam protocol, effort required for its integration is reduced to a minimum. Configuration is carried out with Plug & Play with access to the camera via a standard interface. The new C4 camera from Automation Technology, like all GigE Vision cameras from STEMMER IMAGING, comes with CVB?2011 CameraSuite MultiOS.
