Basler Time-of-Flight Camera

Cut System Costs with 3D Technology
The Basler Time-of-Flight (ToF) Camera is an industrial 3D camera operating on the pulsed Time-of-Flight principle. It is equipped with eight high-power LEDs working in the NIR range (850nm), and generates 2D and 3D data in one shot with a multipart image, comprised of range, intensity and confidence maps.
The Basler ToF Camera stands out in particular for its combination of high resolution (VGA) and powerful features at a very attractive price. This outstanding price/performance ratio puts the Basler ToF Camera in a unique position on the market and distinguishes it significantly from competitors' cameras.
Our camera is suitable for a variety of applications, including robotics, industrial automation, logistics and medical & life sciences, as well as in many areas of the "Smart Factory."

How Does a ToF Camera Work?
The measurement principle is based on the time the light needs to travel from the light source to the object and back to the camera; the further the distance, the longer the time taken. Both light source and image acquisition are synchronized in such a way that the distances can be extracted and calculated from the image data.

ToF Software
At the "Downloads" tab, you can download the Basler ToF software for free. The ToF software is available for both Windows as well as for x86-based Linux systems. In addition to the GigE Vision drivers the software package contains the Basler pylon Viewer, which can be used to configure the ToF camera and adjust the settings to your specific needs. The Basler ToF software is based on the GenICam standard and allows access to the camera via the standardized interface GenTL. A comprehensive collection of C ++ and C # sample code demonstrates how to integrate the camera into your application. Please find more information on the ToF software and the respective versions in the release notes.
