Imaging's Matrox GatorEye GigE Vision industrial
camera now offers 3D capabilities. For
triangulation-based 3D digitizing applications, the Matrox GatorEye extracts
the laser line in an image to sub-pixel accuracy and produces the corresponding
positional depth/height array. Only the resulting array is transmitted, which
lightens the load on the Gigabit Ethernet link and PC. The PC can then focus on
other tasks, including 3D measurement and analysis. The industrial camera
has a IP67 rating and is designed for harsh environments.
Some cars are more reliable than others, but even the vehicles at the bottom of this year’s Consumer Reports reliability survey are vastly better than those of 20 years ago in the key areas of powertrain and hardware, experts said this week.
Many of the materials in this slideshow are resins or elastomers, plus reinforced materials, styrenics, and PLA masterbatches. Applications range from automotive and aerospace to industrial, consumer electronics and wearables, consumer goods, medical and healthcare, as well as sporting goods, and materials for protecting food and beverages.
While many larger companies are still reluctant to rely on wireless networks to transmit important information in industrial settings, there is an increasing acceptance rate of the newer, more robust wireless options that are now available.
