The Ensenso XR series combines the flexible, modular design of the Ensenso X series with the advantages of an embedded system. The new powerful XR projector unit with integrated system on chip processes the image data independently, making 3D data available directly from the camera. The 3D performance of the XR series can compete with that of a powerful Core i7 desktop CPU. By shifting the compute-intensive calculations to the camera, they no longer have to be performed by powerful industrial PCs. In addition, the transfer of 3D result data instead of high-resolution 2D raw data reduces the network load. Multi-camera systems in particular benefit from the resource-saving features of the new XR series.
Besides the GigE data interface, the Ensenso XR series is also equipped with WiFi, which is very useful for temporary access to data and parameters when wiring is difficult or cost-intensive. A built-in front light supports calibrating the work environment as well as the image quality of the 2D camera images.
With different base lines and focal lengths, working distances of more than 5 meters can be realized and objects with volumes of several cubic meters can be captured, such as heavily laden pallets or entire rooms. The first Ensenso XR models feature 1.6 MP Sony sensors and are protected by IP65/67 against dirt, dust, splash water or cleaning agents, as well as against accidental shifting of the optics.
