The Ensenso N10 stereo 3D camera by IDS is designed for vision applications that require 3D imaging and for safety inspections. Courtesy: IDSIDS Imaging Development Systems' Ensenso N10 stereo 3D camera is fitted with two global shutter CMOS sensors and a pattern projector that projects a static, high-contrast texture onto the object being captured, adding structures that are not visible or are only faintly visible to the human eye. Combined with a "semi-global matching" image comparison algorithm, the result is that nearly all surfaces within the field of vision are captured. This technology also works in multi-camera operations, as well as for capturing unstructured surfaces.

Because of its ease of installation and flexible USB 2.0 interface, the Ensenso N10 camera is suitable for a wide range of vision applications where 2D is not enough. Medical engineering, robotics and gripping technology, logistics, completeness checking, rapid volume measurement, as well as measurement technology and safety engineering are fields where the camera's 3D imaging comes in handy. 

With a refresh rate of 30 frames per second, the Ensenso N10 can be used completely in-line, and for inspections. It is optimized for working distances of 280 mm to 1400 mm and available in configurations for variable fields of view. The camera can capture both static or moving objects at up to 30 frames per second. 

The Ensenso N10 has an aluminum housing that measures only 150 x 45 x 45 mm,  making it ideal for space-sensitive industrial environments, including mounting on mobile robot heads. Its rugged design is underscored by a lockable 3-pin M8 sensor/actuator connector with GPIOs for 12-24 V hardware trigger input and output as well as a lockable USB cable.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
