Z-Trak2 High-Speed 3D Profile Sensors

Oct. 11, 2021
High-speed, in-line height measurement and inspection, delivering scan speeds of up to 45,000 profiles/sec.

High-speed, in-line height measurement and inspection

Z-Trak™2 is a new family of 3D profile sensors built on Teledyne DALSA's 3D image sensor technology, ushering in a new era of 5GigE 3D profile sensors for high-speed, in-line 3D applications.Models deliver scan speeds of up to 45,000 profiles per second and features built-in HDR and reflection compensation algorithms to handle surfaces with varying degrees of reflectivity in a single scan. This delivers in-line height measurements for inspection, detection, identification, and guidance in electronics, semiconductor, automotive and factory automation markets segments.

Delivering scan speeds of up to 45,000 profiles/sec

Offering 2K points per profile, all Z-Trak2 models are factory calibrated and offered with either blue or red eye safe lasers to suit various surface properties and operating environments. All sensors are housed in IP67 enclosures for harsh environments and come bundled free with Teledyne DALSA's Sherlock 8.1 —a point-and-click, rapid application development software package, Sapera Processing RTLs and Sapera LT SDK.

How exactly does 3D imaging work?

There are a number of techniques available for 3D imaging. The Z-Trak series of 3D laser profilers uses a laser triangulation technique to deliver high resolution height measurements. Z-Trak emits a laser onto an object of interest; the reflection's position in the sensor's field of view allows the scanner to triangulate the point in space at which the laser hits the object. The diagram at the left illustrates the terms we use to specify Z-Trak's performance.
