Matrox AltiZ1 is a series of a high-fidelity 3D profile sensors. Each sensor features a dual-camera single-laser design that greatly lessens the scanning gaps often encountered at critical surface junctures because of optical occlusions. Unique algorithms running inside the sensor automatically generate various type of reliable 3D data-individual profiles, depth maps, or point clouds-obtained by smartly combining or selecting the pixel data from the two integrated image sensors, which is automatically sampled for a constant horizontal resolution.
Matrox® AltiZ1 is a series of high-fidelity 3D profile sensors. Each sensor features a dual-camera single-laser design that greatly lessens the scanning gaps often encountered at critical surface junctures because of optical occlusions. Unique algorithms running inside the sensor automatically generate various types of reliable 3D data—individual profiles, depth maps, or point clouds—obtained by smartly combining or selecting the pixel data from the two integrated image sensors, which is automatically sampled for a constant horizontal resolution.
The two cameras within a Matrox AltiZ can operate either synchronously or in alternation. The former provides maximum reproduction quality and robustness; the latter delivers a scanning rate twice that of the former while still providing some defense against occlusion. Scanning volume—affecting the scanning rate— is set in convenient real-world units.
The command and data interface of a Matrox AltiZ is done via a Gigabit Ethernet port with the GigE Vision communication protocol. The sensors’ 24 V-compatible digital I/Os are present for connecting to an incremental encoder and synchronizing multiple 3D sensors, which is useful when there is need to scan different sides of an object or surfaces larger than can be covered by a single 3D sensor. Matrox AltiZ supports PoE for simpler cabling but also features an alternate 24 V power input.
Matrox AltiZ features a sturdy IP67-rated2 aluminium housing with M12 connectors that make it perfectly suited for harsh industrial environments. Isolated discrete I/Os provide protection against improper electrical hookup. Back, side, and top attachment points accepting M4-threaded screws are available for fixing a Matrox AltiZ to gantries and robots. Through-hole guides are also included to enable higher-accuracy installation and the alignment of neighboring Matrox AltiZ units.
Matrox AltiZ pairs well with Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) X4—a comprehensive software development kit (SDK) for Windows and Linux with a more than 25-year history of reliable performance. This toolkit features interactive software and programming functions for image capture, processing, analysis, display, and archiving. Refer to the MIL X datasheet for more information.
The 3D sensors also work with Matrox Design Assistant X5, a Windows-based integrated development environment (IDE) based on MIL, where vision applications result from the construction of flowcharts and their human-machine interface (HMI) from the creation of web pages. Refer to the Matrox Design Assistant X datasheet for more information.
Included in MIL is Matrox Capture Works, an interactive utility for Windows and Linux3 that enables users to conveniently verify the connection to, as well as configure and test acquisition from, cameras and devices using a GenICam™-based interface standard such as Matrox AltiZ. Matrox Capture Works contains views specific to the Matrox AltiZ for tuning peak (laser line) extraction, configuring the scanning volume, and setting up device triggering.
Matrox AltiZ is also compatible with third-party vision software that implements support for the GigE Vision standard, GenICam GenDC specification, and GenICam PFNC 3D pixel formats.
For more than 50 years, Integrys has been the industry leader in selecting and evaluating rugged and embedded computers, imaging and video technology and engineering solutions.
