March 22, 2019 - SmartRay, a manufacturer of 3D sensors for quality inspection and measuring technology, has launched an addition to its ECCO sensor family, balanced for the diverse application requirements of consumer electronics manufacturing. ECCO 95.020 provides a resolution and 3D image quality that ensures production lines and throughput. Utilising SmartRay’s blue laser technology for image quality and repeatability, even for applications with low field-of-view, ECCO 95.020 offers 3D scanning of up to 20 million points per second. Delivering speeds up to 10 kHz in full HD, for up to 1920 points per 3D profile, the performance of ECCO 95.020 has a lateral resolution of 13 µm, vertical resolution of approximately 1.3 µm, and Z-repeatability of 0.2 µm. A 25 mm field of view (FOV) at mid-field positions the performance of ECCO 95.020 between the ECCO 95.010 and the ECCO 95.040, providing consumer electronics manufacturers with a balance between FOV, measurement range (MR) and resolution typically required for their manufacturing applications. ECCO 95.020 also provides a measurement range of 20 mm, for 3D data quality, repeatability and sensitivity, and is designed for scanning thicker components with a larger MR. For example, it enables determination of a height offset between two levels on a consumer electronics part, or it can find the volume of glue dispensed on the component edges during assembly. Offering a gigabit ethernet interface for real-time data transmission capability, the identical housing dimensions to the ECCO 95.010 mean upgrading existing installations to the ECCO 95.020. As the sensor has a direct interface to the host computer, there is no need for any additional controllers. ECCO 95.020 is consequently a 3D inspection and measurement solution for a range of consumer electronics manufacturing applications, including SIM card holder/slot dimensional checks, smartphone glue guidance and inspection, metallic ring dimensional inspection, and smartphone housing dimensional inspection. ECCO 95.020 operators and integrators are supported through the SmartRay DevKit 5.1 (SDK 5.1 SP2) installation package, which offers diverse support for sensor set-up, including third-party drivers such as HALCON from MVTec, Matrox Imaging Library (MIL), SAC Coake or NI LabVIEW.
