ifm > 3D sensors for mobile machines

Germany, Essen – IP 67 and IP 69K for detection of scenes and objects in factories



nf_o3m150-lg3D sensors for mobile machines – True 3D vision sensor

3D sensors for mobile machines 

  • True 3D vision sensor
  • Support for system integrators with data output via Ethernet UDP
  • Patented pmd time-of-flight technology for quick distance detection
  • Optimised for reliable outdoor use
  • Robust design with IP 67 and IP 69 K
  • Angle of aperture up to 95°



Mobile 3D sensors O3M
The 3D detection of scenes and objects, already a standard on the factory floor, is ready for mobile machines. Apart from new possibilities for vehicle automation (AGV, automatic guided vehicles) this results in new assistance functions for automation tasks.
Besides position data at pixel level the respective distance to the sensor system or an adjustable reference point (world coordinate system) is provided. Thanks to the permanent output of the entire 3D information via Ethernet UDP optimum conditions for customer-specific application solutions are provided to system integrators.


Functions and advantages, Powerful 3D time-of-flight measurement (ToF)
The principle of these 3D sensors is based on ifm’s patented and award-winning pmd technology. It was specifically designed for outdoor use and difficult ambient light situations. Interference such as sunlight or materials with different reflective characteristics which occurs in the area of mobile machines does not influence the repeatability of the measured data.

Powerful electronics
The integrated 2 x 32-bit processor architecture ensures a rapid and reliable calculation of the distance image to be output with up to 50 fps. The complete electronics of the mobile 3D sensor is optimised and adapted to the demands and requirements of mobile machines. Besides shock and vibration resistance self-diagnostic functions from the sensor to the IR system illumination unit are of course also available.

High system uptime
The system has various features to ensure uninterrupted operation. They include, among others, soiling indication as well as different status information which can be fetched from CAN.

System parameter setting and monitoring
The parameter setting of the system and live monitoring of the 3D data are carried out via the easy-to-use ifm vision wizard for Windows.

Communication interfaces
The mobile 3D sensors feature a fast Ethernet interface (100 Mbit) as well as a CAN interface. The data output of the complete 3D information is carried out via Ethernet UDP and can be processed using a process unit at the customer’s end. For this version the CAN interface is only intended for parameter setting and status output.
