The new Helios™2 Wide 3D Time-of-Flight (ToF) camera has entered series production.
Helios2 Wide integrates Sony’s DepthSense™ IMX556PLR back-illuminated ToF image sensor paired with a wide-angle lens and four wide-angle 850nm VCSEL laser diodes, providing a 108° Field of View (FoV). The camera is suited for applications with a close working distance and large area of operation such as full-size palettizing.
The Helios2 Wide offers the same IP67 and Factory Tough™ design as the regular Helios2 but quadruples the viewable area thanks to its wider 108° x 78° Field of View. This allows the Helios2 Wide to image a much larger area at the same distance of a Helios2 camera or image the same area but at a closer distance to the target, allowing for more flexibility with camera installation. Helios2 Wide offers a 640 x 480 depth resolution at up to an 8.3 meter working distance and a frame rate of 30 fps.
