Zebra Launches New 3D Sensor Series

May 21, 2024
Sensors designed for complex machine vision tasks, including bin picking, inspections.

Zebra Technologies has launched a new series of 3D sensors, the 3S series. Currently, 3S40 and 3S80 models are available. These GigE, PoE sensors both use structured light 3D sensing technology. The sensors come with either Zebra’s Aurora Design Assistant or Aurora Vision Studio software, which allows the user to configure and deploy deep learning and traditional machine  vision applications. Designed for easy implementation and  integration, the plug-and-play hardware include CMOS camera, laser projections unit and GPU processor.

The 3S40 sensor has 1.5 million 3D point, 1440 x 1080 resolution, and a scanning range of 870 to 2150 mm, with an optimal scanning distance of 1245 mm and a scanning area (at optimal scanning range) of 588 x 444 mm. It has a calibration accuracy of 0.5 mm and a maximum frame rate of 2 fps.

The 3S40 has a 416 x 68 x 86 mm footprint, weighs 950 g, and an operating temperature range of 0° to 40°C, with optimal working temperature of 22°-25°C. It is rated IP65.

The 3S80 sensors utilize parallel structured light technology for high 3D image resolution and accuracy. It has a scanning range of up to 778 to 3034 mm, optimal scanning distance of up to 1252 mm. It has resolution of 2 million 3D points, 1680 x 1200, and frame rate up to 5 fps.

The 3S80 has a 628 x 68 x 85 mm footprint and weighs 1150 g. Rated IP65, it has an operating temperature of  range of 0° to 40°C, with optimal working temperature of 22° to 25°C.

The sensors are especially designed for complex machine vision applications, including bin picking and inspections.
