Steinbichler Optotechnik has released the new 5 Megapixel Sensor COMET L3D 5M.
“In comparison to the basic model COMET L3D, the ‘5M’ offers improved camera resolution for a higher level of surface detail. Even highly structured components can be captured in great detail. By doing so, we achieve a maximum measuring field size of 500mm. Besides this, the COMET L3D 5M also has a newly developed pulsed operation adapted to the LED, which provides for a higher light intensity,” explains Hans Weigert, head of sales/marketing at Steinbichler Optotechnik, about the changes in comparison to the basic model.
According to the company, the COMET L3D 5M opens up a new dimension of 3D data acquisition with its LED lighting technology. The portable device with 3D sensor presents an entry-level solution for users who would like to use a range of optic measuring technologies. The COMET L3D 5M is designed with dust-proof optical components, which allow the device to be used under industrial conditions.
Furthermore, the dimensions and the low weight mean the user can use conventional accessories such as a camera tripod to position the sensor, according to the company.
The BLUE-LED technology of the COMET L3D 5M sensor provides for recording of up to 5M measuring points, the company says. The contact-less measuring principle of the COMET L3D 5M is intended for use even when measuring delicate objects (e.g. made from plastic or foam material). The sensor housing of the COMET L3D has single camera technology from Steinbichler. The software concept also provides for the combination with photogrammetric measuring procedures to digitalise large objects.
