Karmin 3D Stereo Camera

Karmin has been replaced by our new Karmin2 stereo camera. While Karmin will continue to be available for our existing customers, we recommend all new customers to use the new model instead.

Karmin is our pre-assembeled stereo camera, which features two dart USB3 Vision camera modules by Basler. Karmin has been purposely designed for easy integration with our SP1 stereo vision sensor. The camera modules are pre-configured for an optimal depth sensing performance with the SP1. If desired, Karmin can also be used as a stand-alone stereo camera, when connected to a PC.

Karmin stereo camera Karmin comes in three different baseline distances: 10 cm, 15 cm and 25 cm. For each version a large selection of suitable lenses is available. When used in combination with the SP1, Karmin can be operated with a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels at 30 fps, or with 800 x 600 pixels at 20 fps, depending on the employed lenses. This configurability makes Karmin a versatile sensor that can be used for many different 3D sensing applications. Karmin stereo camera close-up

One dart camera module is mounted in a 180° rotation (image automatically rotated), such that both USB ports are accessible from the sides. The two trigger inputs of both cameras are accessible through a 3.5 mm phone connector. This allows Karmin to be easily connected to the SP1's trigger port.

The casing is made of anodized aluminum, which provides excellent mechanical stability. On the bottom, Karmin features a 1/4" UNC thread, which allows mounting on a standard camera tripod. In addition, four mounting holes with an M3 metric thread are provided.
