3D-A1000_in_hand_left(1)The 3D-A1000 Item Detection System by Cognex is a compact and industrial 3D + 2D motion-capable smart camera used for identifying the presence or absence of objects on sorters. Patented 3D technology combined with 2D inspection capabilities accurately detects items, overhangs, empty trays, and debris on all types of carriers traveling at production line speeds. The 3D-A1000 delivers higher detection rates compared to conventional detection technologies, and outputs granular data to track system performance and health.

Unlike conventional methods, the 3D-A1000 uses patented 3D Symbolic Lightâ„¢ technology to freeze motion with a single image. The system gathers precise 3D and 2D information without the need for an encoder or complex calibrations. Embedded processing then uses Cognex vision tools to provide detailed inspections of carrier and production. The 3D-A1000 is factory focused and calibrated, making system integration as simple as mounting. Unlike conventional systems requiring precise alignment, complex lighting, or difficult programming, the 3D-A1000 can be installed by anyone in under 15 minutes, using an intuitive setup wizard which simulates the installation environment to assist with mounting and optimization.
