MLAS212 3D Sensor

Available on request.
ShapeDrive MLAS 3D sensors are distinguished by high precision for minimal measuring volumes. The six variants included in the ShapeDrive MLAS series are available in two performance classes with camera resolutions of 5 and 12 megapixels. The robust design makes the MLAS sensors suitable for use in industrial environments. With its fast Ethernet interface and three measuring ranges in each performance class, ShapeDrive G4 is distinguished by great diversity and high speed.
