IP67 Housing for rough environments

blue laser

Insensitive to ambient light

Quick and easy integration

e.g. for angle measurement etc.

Also as kit or components

Choose the right level of integration

Engineered for industrial use

Stand-alone profile sensors with onboard data processing.
The VC nano 3D-Z series combines laser triangulation with high power blue laser and direct analysis of the data in a rugged protective housing.
Versatile and cost-effective
The result of the 2D/3D triangulation can be directly transferred to a central controller, an external PC is then not necessary. The combination of powerful FPGAs with a dual-core ARM processor, which can be used for the specific application tasks, make the VC nano 3D-Z the perfect basis for versatile triangulation applications with a favorable price/performance ratio.
The right profile sensor for every measuring range

Alternatively, the 3D point clouds can also be evaluated on an external PC and with existing applications. The profile sensors are available in different sizes for various measuring ranges.

Insensitive to ambient light and temperature fluctuations

Advanced Temperature Stability Technology
The laser profilers feature our new Advanced Temperature Stability Technology (ATS). The temperature stability has been improved by the use of special materials for the components.

Ambient Light Suppression Technology

The Ambient Light Suppression Technology (ALST) developed by VC enables measurements with the VC nano 3D-Z laser profilers even at ambient light levels of up to 100,000 Lux. The high insensitivity to ambient light is based on the combination of extremely powerful laser and very short shutter rates. The VC nano 3D-Z not only analyzes the scanned 3D profiles, but can also evaluate the 2D gray-scale image.
