Portable and highly accurate, the V-STARS range is available in single camera and multi-camera real-time measurement system configurations
In V-STARS S Mode, a single camera is used to record a set of images of a targeted object from multiple points of view. The 3D coordinates of the targeted feature points are then determined in an automatic operation which initially measures the points in the images and then recreates the geometry of the network of images and points that existed at the time of the photography.
S-mode is also termed off-line photogrammetry because the computation of 3D object point coordinates takes place only after all the images are recorded and loaded into the PC for processing by V-STARS.
There are four S-Mode system configurations of V-STARS, the V-STARS N Platinum, Gold and Silver systems. All are highly portable and comprise a single high-resolution digital camera, a notebook computer, V-STARS software for automatic data processing, and accessories.
The 3D measurement accuracy of current V-STARS S systems ranges from 10 µm + 10 µm/m to a maximum of 4 µm + 4 µm/m, the latter accuracy corresponding to 0.020mm @ 4m, 0.001” @ 200” or 1:200,000.
V-STARS D is a remotely operated industrial photogrammetry camera that functions as an optical CMM, but is configured with multiple high-speed DynaMo cameras that support a measurement rate of 10 Hz.
The system is very compact, incorporating a low visibility flash system, and has a wide field of view and large operating range.
Ideal for in-place, real-time operations where cameras are positioned within a fixed, measurement cell configuration for extended periods of time.
A two-camera V-STARS D5 system offers a measurement accuracy of 14µm + 14µm/m (1:60,000@4m, 0.07mm@4m or 0.0028”@160”) with either of the two DynaMo D5 lens options of Medium (58°x50°) and a Wide Angle (72°x62°).
A two-camera V-STARS D12 system offers a measurement accuracy of 10µm + 10µm/m (1:80,000@4m, 0.05mm@4m or 0.0020”@160”) with the DynaMo D12 wide angle lens options (72°x58°).
V-STARS D systems are ideal for in-place, real-time operation where cameras are positioned within a fixed, measurement cell configuration for extended periods of time. Thus the system is well suited to high-speed dynamic monitoring of object movement and deformation, as well as to repeat inspection within an assembly line environment.
