Ensenso S: New entry-level 3D camera

The Ensenso S series from IDS Imaging Development Systems has been specially designed for
applications that require budget friendly, easy-to-integrate and industrial-grade 3D camera
technology. The camera is equipped with a zinc die-cast housing (IP65/67), a 1.6 MP Sony
sensor and an infrared LED laser. Ensenso S is particularly suitable for high-volume projects
and companies that want to take their first steps in 3D vision.

A narrow-band infrared laser projector creates a high-contrast dot pattern – even on objects with
difficult surfaces or in low-light environments. The camera’s laser point triangulation is accelerated by
a neural network and enables reliable mapping of the captured pattern points to the hard-coded
positions of the projection. This results in robust and geometrically precise 3D data with high depth
accuracy. At object distances of 50 cm, the maximum deviation is only 0.6 mm. At full projector power,
the Ensenso S10 3D system achieves up to 20 point clouds per second with consistently high quality
and resolution.

With a rugged zinc die-cast housing, a 60° field of view and a working range of 0.5 to 3 metres, the 3D
camera can be used universally and is suitable for industrial applications with high cost efficiency.
Combined with the proven flexibility of the Ensenso SDK, it is also quickly and easily integrated into
many applications where, for example, variant objects need to be safely gripped in large numbers or
obstacles need to be detected for collision-free movements of robots and UAVs. The Ensenso S10 is
also at home in logistics automation as well as in robotics or in the agricultural sector. Especially high-
volume and price-sensitive projects can now benefit from 3D image processing in industrial quality.

From pick & place to quality assurance: Many tasks in robot technology and automation can only be
solved successfully with 3D data. With the Ensenso stereo vision cameras, IDS offers a solution for 3D
image acquisition that excels in terms of precision as well economy and speed. Whether with fully
integrated housing, modular design or integrated data processing: the Ensenso S, N, X and XR 3D
camera families provide solutions for the most diverse requirements. The Ensenso selector on the IDS
website helps to find the right model for your application.
