1 Only available when binning is enabled in the camera settings.

2 Z repeatability is measured an average of 100 times over a pointcloud using a 4×4 mm area, at the middle of the measurement range.

3 Z linearity is the maximum deviation of 250 position measurements on the measurement range, where a measurement is the average of 2 profiles using the standard Cognex target.

4 From the standard ambient temperature 21 °C (70 °F).

5 Mounted to a 400 mm aluminum bar along the camera’s fins (parallel to the camera) on top of the vision system.

6When binning is enabled and the FOV is windowed down.

3D-L4000 with VisionPro

Optimize your product quality with high-speed, high-resolution 3D inspections

The 3D-L4000 with VisionPro combines laser triangulation with advanced image formation to create highly-detailed, three-dimensional renderings of parts under inspection. From these topographical renderings, you can capture precise measurements of every surface-level feature including length, width, height, tilt, and volume.

With a rugged, IP-65 rated design and a compact form factor, the 3D-L4000 with VisionPro easily fits into any production environment and offers manufacturers of all size:

  • A versatile solution to automate both 2D and 3D vision tasks
  • Full factory calibration to simplify deployment
  • Contrast independent inspection for higher detection capability
  • 3D-L4000 with VisionPro product photo

Contrast independent inspection

  • Detect objects on challenging backgrounds, including reflective surfaces and dark parts against dark surfaces
  • Generate intensity data of different regions concurrently
  • Enhance texture of 3D visualizations for more accurate inspections
  • Solve a wide range of vision tasks with height, volume, plane-fitting, and tilt tools

Optimize image formation in real-world settings

The 3D-L4000 with VisionPro includes patented, speckle-free blue laser optics that enable the system to capture higher quality images than traditional laser displacement sensors. This type of laser optics minimizes speckle and glare, common problems for 3D laser systems.
