3D profiles collected at 12 million points per second

With its broad range of weCat3D Profile Sensors, Wenglor is offering to scan and evaluate objects in 3D, the profile data collected being either read out directly as measured values or used for further processing of the point cloud.

The weCat3D MLSL, weighing just 300g in a 90x36x64mm housing, scans as many as 3.6 million measuring points per second, has an output rate of up to 4000 Hz, as well as a resolution of down to 22 µm in visual field width X and down to 3.3 µm in working distance Z.
The weCat3D MLWL scans up to 12 million measuring points per second, has an output rate of up to 6000 Hz, visual field widths from 30 to 1300 mm and high resolution (down to 17 µm in visual field width X and down to 2.0 µm in working distance Z). The sensors generate powerful measuring signals and top quality profile data not impaired by glossy, reflective surfaces such as metals. An extremely high dynamic range also ensures that objects can be precisely measured nearly independent off colour and brightness. Available laser classes (1, 2M, 3R, 3B) and two selectable types of light (red, blue) result in a diverse product portfolio with more than 70 models. The sensors come with open interfaces with DLL for customer software in C++, C# or Visual Basic. They feature an Ethernet TCP/IP port for 100 Mbit/s up to 1 GBit/s data transfers, as well as an intuitive OLED display and an integrated, multilingual web server.
