3D Imaging Sensor targets machine vision applications.
Press Release Summary:
November 21, 2012 - When used in conjunction with PowerEye machine vision system, GS 3D Imaging Sensor is suited for bin tracking, robotic manipulation, sorting products, mold clearance checking, space monitoring, and object recognition. In addition, 3D technology will aid in determining spatial positions and measurements. With typical operating distance of 0.8–3.5 m and 58°H/45°V/70°D field of view, sensor can scan large objects in milliseconds without cycle time and motion required by scanning-based methods.

Press release date: November 1, 2012
FSI Technologies adds a new 3D imaging sensor into its machine vision product line. The GS Family of 3D imaging sensors provides support to a whole new range of robot control and inspection applications.
According to Fred Turek, FSI’s COO, “This represents a nice addition to FSI’s 3D machine vision technologies. The GS 3D images larger objects at longer distances and does so in milliseconds without the cycle time and motion required by scanning-based methods.”
The GS 3D sensors, when used in conjunction with the PowerEye machine vision system, can be used in applications such as bin picking, robotic manipulation, sorting products, mold clearance checking, and space monitoring and object recognition. In addition, the 3D technology will aid in determining spatial positions and measurements.
