SmartRay has added to its industry-leading ECCO 95 range a new sensor designed to scan glass and specular surfaces.

The ECCO 95.015G is our first sensor designed specifically for flat and specular reflective surfaces. Previously, the 3D scanning of these surfaces has not been possible, because the laser would pass through the glass.

Combining our existing ECCO 95 sensor technology with optimised optics enables the surface to be scanned, while maintaining the compact sensor size. The ECCO 95.015G also provides the high-resolution, high-speed accuracy and reliability associated with the ECCO range.

Offering superior 3D data quality, the glass sensor is ideal for use in the consumer electronics and mobile phone housing markets, and can be easily configured for a wide variety of other applications.

It can be used with third party vision software or the customer’s own software framework, to enable a completely customizable, cost-effective solution for inspecting any flat glass or specular surface.

The 450 nm brilliant blue laser delivers a typical lateral resolution between 6 and 6.8 µm, and a vertical resolution between 0.42 and 0.54 µm, and can create a 3D profile with up to 1920 points. Mounted at a 21o pitch angle, it provides a typical field of view of 12 mm at mid-field.
