With 12-megapixel resolution and a frame rate of up to nine images per second, the new 3D stereo camera from Balluff enables highly accurate 3D image processing, even with moving objects.

content provided by balluffThe new BVS 3D_RV1 3D provides the high level of detection accuracy required for demanding industrial automation and logistics applications with working distances up to 4 M. It was specifically developed for detecting and handling small and complex parts, even in large detection areas, such as demanding bin picking and machine tending applications. Adjustable lenses and a built-in projector provide optimal image results for most workspaces. 

The camera operates according to the GigE Vision standard and uses a GenICAM-compatible software interface. This provides a high level of flexibility for users to create their own applications with the supplied SGM producer library or with compatible third-party software, such as Halcom or OpenCV.

The software package is available as a free download. It contains GUI tools — 3D viewer, calibration tool and status tool — as well as important libraries that are needed for 3D processing on an external graphics card. All Nvidia GPUs are supported.

A robust housing with an IP54 protection rating makes the camera suitable for harsh industrial environments such as metalworking, machine assembly and intralogistics. 


  • GigE Vision interface for high flexibility
  • IP54 rating for use in harsh environments
