SOFTWARE FOR 3D SENSORS AND INSPECTION SYSTEM
FocalSpec has developed software for 3D sensors to facilitate system integration and to meet the needs of smart manufacturing. Line Confocal Sensors can be integrated into automation systems for inline and offline metrology applications.
Software for 3D sensors installed in optical inspection systems include scanning and data analysis software designed specifically for cutting-edge metrology applications.
INTEGRATION SOFTWARE FOR 3D SENSORS
FocalSpec sensors generate high-quality 3D point clouds from any moving surface. With external trigger capability, the sensors can be integrated into a new machine vision system or an existing manufacturing line.

SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT KIT
The FocalSpec Software Development Kit (FSSDK) offers a flexible alternative to creating high-performance metrology solutions with native C and C++ programming languages or with the C# .NET framework. FSSDK allows for easy and cost-efficient platform-independent integration of Line Confocal Sensors.
FSSDK includes an API, drivers, and source code examples. The sensors connect to the outside world via an Ethernet port with both encoder and trigger inputs supported. The sensors’ 24 VDC power supply is required for operation.
FSSDK provides a data interface for a variety of third-party metrology software libraries making it easy to create custom metrology applications.
Third-party software libraries compatible with FocalSpec sensors currently include:
- Halcon by MVTec Software
- LabVIEW by National Instruments
- Matrox MIL by Matrox Electronic Systems
- MATLAB by MathWorks
SOFTWARE FOR 3D SENSORS INSTALLED IN OPTICAL INSPECTION SYSTEMS
FocalSpec optical inspection systems come with GUI scanning software, allowing the user to acquire 3D and 2D data and configure the settings of a sensor attached into the system. In addition to scanning software, 3D Line Confocal Scanner UULA is provided with FocalSpec Map Standard software.
FocalSpec Map is a surface imaging, analysis and metrology software designed specifically for FocalSpec 3D Line Confocal Scanner UULA. The software is based on MountainsMap® by Digital Surf.
With FocalSpec Map the user can:
- Visualize 3D surface profiles in real time
- Calculate 3D and 2D dimensions
- Analyze surface texture according to the latest standards
- Remove artifacts
- Increase vertical range programmatically
- Automate measurement analysis
- Create metrology reports
3D Line Confocal Scanner UULA comes with a standalone FocalSpec Map Standard license. Customers can purchase one or more modules according to their needs.
Optional modules available
- 2D Advanced Surface Texture
- 3D Advanced Surface Texture
- Advanced Contour
- 3D Fourier and Wavelets
- 4D Series
- Grains and Particles
FocalSpec Map Premium is recommended for customers with a variety of different measurement needs. It includes all other optional modules except Advanced Contour.
