IPU: Industrial Performance Unit for performant 3D analysis
All 3D sensors of the Micro-Epsilon product portfolio are compatible with the Industrial Performance Unit and can be efficiently put into operation. These are the scanCONTROL laser scanners, the surfaceCONTROL 3D snapshot sensor and the reflectCONTROL 3D sensor. In addition, the IPU offers full compatibility and inline capability in the application.
Micro-Epsilon provides a high-performance 3D sensor portfolio consisting of a high-precision sensor, the powerful Industrial Performance Unit and the 3DInspect software installed on it, which is easy to use. This allows numerous 3D measurement tasks to be solved efficiently. The sensors are flexible and provide real 3D evaluations for diffuse-reflective, glossy and many other surfaces.
The 3D sensors are connected to the IPU via the GigE Vision standard. Thanks to the 3DInspect software with Valid3D technology included in the scope of delivery, simple sensor parameterization is possible, allowing measurements to be started immediately. The Industrial Performance Unit directly processes three-dimensional data, which is subsequently evaluated and assessed via the 3DInspect software. The integrated PROFINET, EthernNet/IP and Modbus/TCP interfaces are available for output of results.
The hardware is industry-optimized and equipped with passive cooling. The compact unit also requires very little space. Therefore the unit can be installed in a control cabinet or mounted directly in the machine. Accessories such as a monitor, mouse or keyboard can also be connected to the IPU.
