Key advantages

  • Just one camera
    No need for multiple cameras placed around and over the object
  • Wide viewing angle
    45° object sides view makes otherwise hidden features visible
  • Complete surface inspection
    Both inner and outer object surfaces can be imaged in one shot
  • Very high resolution
    Even the tiniest defects can be detected.

Notes

  1. Working distance: distance between the front end of the mechanics and the object.
  2. The design working f-number (wf/N) is specified. The working f-number could be changed using the variable iris.
  3. Measured from the front end of the mechanics to the camera flange.

Maximum achievable field of view

The diagram shows how PCPW optics image a cylindrical object. The object is observed at 45° from eight different points of view. Eight different trapezoidal fields of view are obtained: all the object features included

in such a trapezoid will be imaged on the corresponding image portion. The 45° view angle allows both the sides and the top of a cylindrical object to be imaged. If the object is a hollow cylinder (hole or cavity), the inner wall

of the cavity will be imaged instead of the top, thus enabling both outer and inner side inspection.

Maximum achievable field of view

In order to perform a complete 360° inspection, each of the eight image portions should image at least 1/6 of the cylindrical surface; this condition ensures a good overlapping between two different lateral views, since part of the object features will be shared by two neighboring image portions..
