Karmin3 – Nerian's 3D Stereo Camera

Karmin3 is Nerian's latest revision of the successful Karmin2 stereo camera. Karmin3 contains two 3 megapixel Sony Pregius IMX265 images sensors. This sensor provides superior light sensitivity and dynamic range, which makes Karmin3 particularly suitable for challenging lighting conditions.

Karmin3 stereo camera

Karmin3 has been specifically designed for easy integration with our SceneScan stereo vision sensor. In combination with SceneScan, Karmin3 becomes a fully featured 3D depth camera that acquires accurate range measurements, even in bright light conditions and over long distances.

Karmin3 is available in two different stereo baseline distances: 10 and 25 cm. The 10 cm model is ideal for close range depth measurements, with measurement distances as low as 0.5  m. The 25 cm model, on the other hand, is intended for long range stereo vision. In this case, the wider baseline facilitates a superior depth resolution at higher distances.

A large selection of lenses is available for each version, which allows for a fine-grained control of the field-of-view. With our standard lenses, field-of-views between 25° and 62° are possible. Even wider or narrower angles can be achieved with special lenses if the application requires so. This makes Karmin3 the most configurable 3D depth camera on the market.

Karmin3 is machined from a solid piece of aluminum, which provides excellent mechanical stability and ensures a long-lasting calibration. Its two image sensors have a native resolution of 2048 × 1536 pixels, but can also be operated at 1024 × 768 pixels at an increased frame rate.

Both image sensors are triggered though an external trigger signal, which provides excellent synchronization. The trigger signal can be generated by SceneScan or another signal generator. An accurate synchronization is imperative when acquiring depth measurements of moving objects.
