Matrox AltiZ

3D Laser Profile Sensors with 2 integrated cameras

Matrox AltiZ is a series of integrated high-fidelity 3D profile sensors featuring a dual-camera single-laser design. These fully integrated 3D profile sensors boast an optimized design that greatly lessens scanning gaps. Simultaneous viewing of the laser line by the Matrox AltiZ’s two opposed optical sensors reduces optical occlusions - frequently encountered at critical surface junctures - caused by the laser line being obstructed from the view of a single image sensor because of a surface’s orientation.

Designed for superior image fidelity

Offering the most elegant solution possible for combating occlusion effects, Matrox AltiZ 3D profile sensors achieve something common 3D profile sensors—equipped with a single laser and single optical sensor—cannot. Matrox AltiZ stand apart from the competition in terms of their dual optical-sensor design and data-fusion capability, which offers higher 3D reproduction fidelity through their ability to combat occlusion and outlier data. The Matrox AltiZ delivers incredibly high levels of control over spurious data, providing more robust reproductions than achievable with other models on the market.

Whether mounted on the end of a robot arm or fixed to a gantry overlooking a conveyor, the Matrox AltiZ deliver superior reproductions of a 3D object or scene. Data is represented as individual profiles, a depth map, or a point cloud.

Configured for optimal versatility

The integrated image sensors of the Matrox AltiZ can work in either synchronized or alternate fashion. In synchronized mode, this 3D profile sensor achieves maximum reproduction quality and robustness; configured in alternate mode, the Matrox AltiZ’s scanning rate is almost twice that of the synchronized configuration while still providing key defense against occlusion.

Regardless of the configuration chosen, the Matrox AltiZ is ideally suited for inspection tasks, delivering two powerful cameras within a single compact enclosure, and an IP67 rating ensuring its performance in tight spaces and harsh industrial environments.

Engineered for interoperability

The Matrox AltiZ profile sensors output 3D data over a standard GigE Vision® interface with standard GenICam™ extensions; this means users are not locked into a specific proprietary interface, ensuring interoperability moving forward with commercial and custom acquisition, processing, and analysis software. The Matrox AltiZ interoperates seamlessly with either Matrox Imaging branded and/or suitable third-party machine vision software.

Matrox AltiZ is an entirely new product line born from the market demand for superior 3D reproduction fidelity: It is the culmination of a significant investment, not only in terms of product development, but also in the associated state-of-the-art manufacturing installations.
