3D machine vision

Your Benefits

  • High-speed measurement allows you to increase production throughput and still ensure product quality
  • Accurate size and position measurement in 3D, regardless of an object’s height or color, creating reliable solutions
  • Simultaneously capturing 3D, scatter, and grayscale, allows for more reliable quality control and inspection
  • Factory calibrated 3D with built-in lighting instantly provides results in millimeters, which makes integration easy
  • Designed for tough industrial environments to ensure a long and problem-free life time


Ruler E is a perfect tool for in-line 3D-scanning applications. It is designed for the tough environments common to the timber and mining industries and will provide accurate 3D measurements at temperatures as low as –30 °C. Plus, the Gigabit Ethernet interface makes it suitable for remote operation over long cable distances. With its built-in light source and factory-calibrated 3D data, the camera instantly provides precise measured values to within a millimeter, making integration considerably easier. In addition to high-speed 3D measurements, the Ruler E camera also provides grayscale intensity and laser scatter measurements. These measurements reveal more about objects and, in turn, enable more precise and reliable decisions. With a choice of analysis tools, PC performance, and combining data from several Rulers, you can adapt the solution cost and performance to your specific requirements.
