surfaceCONTROL 3D 3200

High-performance 3D snapshot sensor for industrial measurement and inspection tasks

The high-performance surfaceCONTROL 3D 3200 snapshot sensor is ideally suited for use in industrial applications. It performs automated inline 3D measurements for geometry, shape and surface inspection on diffuse reflecting surfaces. The sensor is characterized by its compact design and high measurement accuracy combined with high data processing speed. With a high Z-axis repeatability of up to 0.6 µm, the sensor is ideal for precise 3D measurement and inspection tasks. Two different measuring ranges cover different measuring fields.



  1. Acquisition time from 0.3 s
  2. Micron snapshots for large measuring fields
  3. Highest precision up to 0.4 μm
  4. Digital interfaces (integrated): GigE Vision /GenICam
  5. Digital interfaces (via 2D/3D Gateway): PROFINET / EtherCAT / EtherNet/IP*
  6. Digital in-/outputs: 4 digital I/Os for which parameters can be set (for external trigger, sensor control, output of sensor states)

High-precision 3D sensor for the smallest measuring objects

With its small measurement area of 30 x 18,5 mm, the surfaceCONTROL 32x0-30 detects even the finest 3D and surface structures with utmost precision and reliability. Its high z-axis resolution and the precise repeatability enable high precision measurements. In addition, tiny objects with a working distance of 130 mm can be detected while the XY resolution from 16 µm ensures even more accurate detection.

240 mm larger measuring range with excellent precision in Z

With a measurement area of up to 245 x 180 mm, the surfaceCONTROL 35x0-240 captures structures and details on larger targets with high precision. Due to their high z-axis measuring range of 240 mm, the sensors are ideal for applications with large measuring volumes. The high z-axis resolution of 5 µm in combination with the larger measuring range enables maximum precision for a wide range of applications, e.g. for testing bipolar plates for fuel cells.

New generation of 3D measurements

In addition to the fast data output, the surfaceCONTROL 3D 3200 also has an IO interface. EtherNet/IP, PROFINET and EtherCAT are available by using the 2D/3D Gateway II. 3D GigE Vision compatibility also allows easy integration into third-party image processing software. The comprehensive SDK for customer software integration rounds off the software package.

Application examples:

  • 3D geometry inspection and form detection
  • Inspection of electronic components
  • Automation, production and process monitoring and quality control
  • Non-contact measurement of diffuse reflecting surfaces in the Stop and Go process
  • Form, position and surface inspections

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, this 3D data can be saved with the software. Furthermore, the set up and configuration of the sensor is possible via the software. For connection to an automation interface, the functions of the 3DInspect Automation software add-on enables use of the SC3210 sensors, which also includes comprehensive data logging.
