Overview

The compact Visionary-T Mini 3D snapshot cameras from SICK with their simple operation and excellent data quality provide the solution to virtually all industrial 3D machine vision requirements. Thanks to the advanced 3D time-of-flight technology, each pixel delivers extremely accurate depth and intensity data. The camera captures its surroundings extremely reliably even in strong light/dark contrast conditions and at long distances, and delivers precise data even for moving objects thanks to its very short image capture time. A clearly structured configuration tool makes it easy to parameterize the device and flexibly adapt the data to the specific application. This makes Visionary-T Mini an ideal, cost-efficient solution, e.g., for logistics, robotics or industrial vehicles.

Advantages

Compact housing and outstanding data quality thanks to 3D time-of-flight technology

Automation applications for robotics, transport vehicles and logistics depend on precise and reliable 2D and 3D distance data. Vision systems need to be able to be effortlessly integrated into the particular machine design even when space is at a premium. The Visionary-T Mini product family combines performance with a compact construction and very high cost efficiency. For data evaluation, the 3D vision sensor provides, amongst other things, detailed 2D and 3D point clouds with a high pixel density. Automatic operating modes make it easier to integrate the device into a machine and ensure ease of use.

Compact design, excellent data quality, and user-friendly operating modes for ease of use

The sensor housing measures only 80 mm x 70 mm x 77 mm, which makes it easier to implement particularly compact robotics and automation solutions.
At 30 images per second and a resolution of 512 x 424 pixels, the sensor delivers outstanding intensity and distance values even for moving objects.
There is no risk of mutual interference when using multiple cameras, even without synchronization. The acquisition technology offers a wide dynamic range without additional configuration and ensures reliable results even in difficult light and contrast conditions.

Cost-efficient solution for a multitude of 3D applications: The compact Visionary-T Mini can be integrated into almost any machine design and tailored to the application. The sensor provides a reliable data basis for demanding applications.

At home in countless industrial applications

The Visionary-T Mini 3D vision sensor was developed especially for fast 3D environment perception in dynamic industrial applications. Example: When used in an automated guided vehicle system (AGV), the sensor records its environment at 30 images per seconds and does so over large distances. It thereby delivers continuous data for AGV navigation or object positioning. In robotics applications, the 2D and 3D images can be used, for example, as a basis for palletizing and picking tasks. The Visionary-T Mini can also be reliably used in static applications such as completeness checks at packaging machines.

3D data acquisition in a dynamic environment, precise measurement data, and reliable object detection

The high resolution and frame rate of the sensor enable precise positioning and navigation of automated guided vehicles and help avoid collisions. This is especially important in industrial environments that are constantly changing, for example, in warehouses or production halls.
The 2D image data and 3D point clouds of the Visionary-T Mini deliver reliable data for accurate determination of the size of parcels and other objects using just one sensor. This ensures compact machine designs and increased cost efficiency, in particular for logistics applications and robot controllers.
A high resolution density and the sharp 3D image can serve, for example, as the basis for completeness checks on conveyor belts or when removing pallets.

The Visionary-T Mini ensures more efficiency in industrial production wherever reliable 3D depth values for dynamic processes are needed.

Precise 3D data in real time – thanks to time-of-flight technology

The Visionary-T Mini uses the latest time-of-flight technology to measure distances. This method involves emitting modulated infrared light that is then reflected back in the direction of the sensor by an object. The distance between the sensor and object can be calculated precisely based on the phase shift of the light. Different phase shifts equate to different distances. The individual pixels thereby deliver a detailed, three-dimensional distance and infrared intensity image of the recorded area.

High frame rate and measurement accuracy; state-of-the-art technology and system design ensure a high ambient light immunity

The Visionary-T Mini with its high frame rate captures up to 30 images per second. It does so with a very short image capture time and wide dynamic range. The Visionary-T Mini simultaneously captures and processes 512 x 424 pixels per image, thereby delivering sharp intensity and 3D images.
With its high repeatability and measurement accuracy over very large distances, the Visionary-T Mini based on 3D time-of-flight technology is one of the best 3D vision sensors available
The Visionary-T Mini has a high ambient light immunity and reliably detects even dark objects from long distances. The reason: Modern VCSEL lighting elements ensure strong illumination. At the same time, the highly sensitive 3D vision sensor detects objects even with low reflection of the emitted infrared light.

The Visionary-T Mini delivers more than 6.5 million high precision 3D distance data points per second. This data basis is highly stable thanks to the advanced time-of-flight technology. The Visionary-T Mini can therefore master even dynamic applications and difficult light and contrast conditions.
