rc_viscore
3D Stereo Sensor

The World’s first 12 MP 3D Stereo Sensor for Automation and Robotic Applications

Taking 3D Stereo Vision to the Next Level

The rc_viscore is a high-resolution IP54-protected 3D stereo sensor with an integrated rc_randomdot pattern projector. It provides 12 Megapixel (MP) camera images and uniquely accurate depth, confidence and error images. It is particularly suitable for the more complex automation tasks, such as detecting small parts in larger workspaces – i.e. whenever high-quality image processing is required. This makes it, for instance, particularly suitable for bin picking applications in industrial automation and logistics, that require high quality image processing.

  • Ideal for challenging bin picking applications
  • Perfect fit for applications in industrial automation and logistics
  • Compact and rugged, designed for industrial environments
  • Unprecedented 12 MP resolution

The performance of the sensor can be optimized for specific applications with the modules of the rc_reason software suite.

The Reliable Detection of Small Parts has Never been Easier

The rc_viscore is a high-resolution 3D stereo sensor for automation and robotic applications with an integrated rc_randomdot pattern projector. This stereo robot camera provides 12Megapixel (MP) camera images and (in combination with an rc_cube Edge Computer or the SGM®Producer) depth, confidence and error images, allowing even small parts to be detected with high accuracy. The integrated rc_randomdot projector additionally allows for dense depth images even for objects/scenes with little texture.

In combination with the rc_cube, the rc_viscore provides the image data for object detection and grasp computation applications, e.g. in industrial automation and logistics applications. Providing exceptionally high-resolution images, the rc_viscore is the ideal 3D stereo sensor even for complex robotic applications. It is compatible with all rc_reason software modules.

Hardware
  • rc_viscore stereo camera
  • Calibration grid large (A3)
  • 2 x 10 m gigabit Ethernet network cables
  • 10 m power cable with M12 connector and one open end
  • Quickstart guide
SoftwareSGM®Producer software library (free download; required for operating the rc_viscore with a computing resource other than the rc_cube)
Please note that the rc_viscore requires two Gigabit Ethernet Connectors.
The rc_viscore can only be operated in conjunction with an rc_cube or a comparable industrial PC. Please note that for use with a PC other than the rc_cube, use of the SGM®Producer (included) is required.
For use with an rc_cube S, we recommend a switch. The switch must be unmanaged and must provide a 2,5 GBit port for connection with the rc_cube S. An example of a suitable switch is the TPLink TL-SG105-M2.
