MLSL122 2D/3D Profile Sensor

Available from stock
2D/3D Profile Sensors project a laser line onto the object to be detected and generate an accurate, linearized height profile with an internal camera which is set up at a triangulation angle. Thanks to its uniform, open interface, the weCat3D series can be incorporated by means of the DLL program library or the GigE Vision standard without an additional control unit. Alternatively, wenglor offers its own software packages for implementing your application.
