Z-Trak

High Performance, Low Cost 3D Profile Sensor

Introducing Z-Trak 3D Profile Sensor

Z-Trak is a series of 3D profile sensors delivering high-resolution, real-time height measurements using laser triangulation. These lightweight IP67 rated profile sensors are ideal for in-line measurement, inspection, identification and guidance applications in automotive, electronics and semiconductor and factory automation.

Z-Trak series delivers reliable and repeatable results in varying operating conditions. Z-Trak models handle object widths from 8.5 mm to 1520 mm and height of 10 mm to 1150 mm. All Z-Trak models are factory calibrated and come with different laser options for optimal response.

Z-Trak Series features real-time laser line optimization for uniform measurement results, multi-sensor synchronization using generic Gigabit network routers and Power-Over-Ethernet (POE) to simplify setup and configuration. In addition, Z-Trak series comes bundled with Teledyne DALSA’s field-proven software packages – Sapera LT, Sapera Processing, and Sherlock 8 3D – at no extra cost.

Powerful. Versatile. Easy to Integrate.

The Z-Trak comes in multiple body sizes, packed with powerful features such as FIR-Peak Detector, optimized optical design, factory calibration, adaptive integration time, optimized laser thermal management, field proven software libraries, and many more.

We've meticulously designed the Z-Trak to handle any of the challenges that arise from your application.

The overall result? A high-accuracy, high-resolution 3D laser profiler at a low total-cost of ownership.

How exactly does 3D imaging work?

There are a number of techniques available for 3D imaging. The Z-Trak series of 3D laser profilers uses a laser triangulation technique to deliver high resolution height measurements. Z-Trak emits a laser onto an object of interest; the reflection's position in the sensor's field of view allows the scanner to triangulate the point in space at which the laser hits the object. 

The diagram at the left illustrates the terms we use to specify Z-Trak's performance.
