reflectCONTROL - for shiny surfaces

3D sensor for the inspection of shiny surfaces

The reflectCONTROL sensors are used for surface inspection and 3D shape detection of reflective parts. They work according to the principle of fringe light projection, which enables direct 3D measurements. The sensors are characterized by a large measuring field combined with high z-axis repeatability.



  1. Inspection of reflecting and shiny surfaces
  2. Identification of the most minute defects and deviations
  3. Consistent and reproducible identification rate
  4. High-precision measurements, flatness deviation in the submicron range
  5. Large measuring field of 170x160 mm

Surface inspection of shiny components

The reflectCONTROL RCS110-245 with integrated controller is designed for stationary measurements or integration into machines. This compact sensor detects anomalies on shiny surfaces which are processed and displayed as reflectivity and curvature image by software. GigE Vision enables the transfer of surface images to a wide range of image processing software packages for further analyses.


Deflectometry sensor for 3D measurements of shiny surfaces

The reflectCONTROL RC130 is intended for shape measurements of shiny objects. This sensor displays a striped pattern which is mirrored by the surface of the measuring object into the sensor cameras. The sensor provides a 3D image of the surface which allows for the topology of the components (e.g. flatness, deflection, curvature) to be determined. The RCS130 model is specially optimized for measurement and inspection tasks, e.g., in production lines. Moreover, the sensor has a GigE Vision interface that offers GenICam compliant data.

3DInspect software for 3D measurement tasks and inspection

The 3DInspect software is a powerful tool for sensor parameter set up and industrial measurement tasks. This software transmits the measurement data from the sensor via Ethernet and provides the data in three-dimensional form. This 3D data is further processed, evaluated and assessed with 3DInspect measuring programs on the PC and, if necessary, logged and transmitted via Ethernet to a control unit. If required, these 3D data can be saved with the software. Furthermore, the set up and configuration of the sensor is possible via the software.

Software integration via Micro-Epsilon’s 3D-SDK

reflectCONTROL is equipped with an easy-to-integrate SDK (Software Development Kit). The SDK is based on the GigE Vision and GenICam industry standards including the following function blocks:

  • Network configuration and sensor connection
  • Comprehensive sensor control
  • Control of image transfer
  • Management of user-defined parameter sets
  • C++ example programs and documentation

Accessing the sensor via GigE Vision is also possible without SDK if you have a GenICam client.
