What does it mean to be Factory Tough?

By delivering higher industrial certification standards to our Triton area scan and Helios2 3D cameras, they can be trusted for 24/7 industrial operation in more challenging environments. Whether it is integrating the most cost-effective IP67 protection into the compact 29 x 29 mm Triton, or through persistently pushing the envelope for Time-of-Flight precision and accuracy found on the Helios2, LUCID continues to focus on their primary goal: innovative machine vision cameras that can withstand the challenges of continuous industrial use.

Benefits of our Factory Tough Triton and Helios2 cameras:


Shock and Vibration

Spec: EN 60068-2-27, EN 60068-2-64. Tested and certified against shocks (x/y/z), bumps (x/y/z), and vibrations (x/y/z, random and sinusoidal).


Industrial EMC Immunity

Spec: EN 61000-6-2. Immunity against voltage fluctuations, electrostatic discharge, surges, strong magnetic fields, and current emissions.


Dust Proof, Water Resistant

IP67 Rated. Complete protection against dust and dirt. No ingress of water when submerged up to 1 m for 30 mins.


Rugged Connectors

M12 and M8 connectors (Spec: IEC 61076-2-109, IEC 61076-2-104) provide a threaded circular connection with strong clamping force and IP67 protection.


High-Efficiency Isolated PoE

Lower power consumption with minimal loss to heat.


Die-cast Aluminium Case

Strong, lightweight metal with efficient heat dissipation.


100 m Cable Length

Deploy shielded 100m cable lengths with isolated power.


Electronic Certifications

FCC Class A, CE, KCC, RoHS, REACH, and WEEE certified.


Hardware Unit Testing

Every camera unit is heat chamber tested. Each unit must pass 100% of all functionality tests during alternating hot and cold temperatures.


EMVA 1288 Unit Tests

Each camera unit is tested for correct dynamic range, dark noise, saturation capacity, and quantum efficiency results.


24V PLC Optical Input

Prevents false triggering due to electrically noisy environments by connecting with 24V logic. (Contact Sales for Triton models with this feature)

Triton Machine Vision Camera

Triton GigE Camera

The Triton camera pushes the standard 29 x 29 mm machine vision camera to a new level. The Triton’s electronics are housed in a sealed two-piece aluminum case secured by 4 M2 screws. All image sensors in all Triton units are attached using LUCID’s 6-DoF active sensor alignment system for superior optical clarity. The M12 Ethernet connector and M8 GPIO connector provides a robust connection resistant to shock and vibration. For even more protection, an optional IP67 lens tube can be attached for dust proof and water resistant operation, eliminating the need for an external case. The camera has a wide operating temperature range from -20°C to 55°C ambient. At only 67 grams and 29 x 29 mm, the Triton is an easy fit in any environment.

Atlas IP67 5GigE camera front

Atlas IP67 5GBASE-T Camera

Atlas IP67 is a GigE Vision and GenICam compliant camera capable of 600 MB/s data transfer rates (5Gbps), allowing for high resolutions and frame rates over standard copper Ethernet cables up to 100 meters. It features Sony Pregius sensors with Active Sensor Alignment for superior optical performance. The 5Gbase-T (5GigE) Ethernet interface is 5 times faster than Gigabit Ethernet, 50% faster than USB3.1 Gen1 and works with up to 100m of regular copper Ethernet cable. Atlas supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) that simplifies integration and reduces cost. And, despite its compact size, Atlas IP67 models operate without the need for large heatsinks or fans.  The 5GigE Atlas hits the sweet spot of faster frame rates, small size and excellent price-performance.

Helios2 3D Camera Time of Flight

Helios2+ 3D ToF Camera

The Helios2+ is an advanced version of the Helios2 ToF camera offering two new key features enabling deployment in challenging environments, High Dynamic Range mode and High-Speed Time-of-Flight mode, while retaining all other benefits of the Helios2. The High Dynamic Range mode fuses multiple exposures in the phase domain to provide accurate depth information in high contrast, complex scenes. The High-Speed ToF mode enables depth perception using a single phase measurement to realize faster acquisition speed and higher framerate. Both HDR and High Speed modes are realized entirely with on-camera processing. The Helios2+ shares the same ‘factory tough’ industrial platform with its predecessor and is 100% mechanically and electronically compatible with the Helios2.

The Factory Tough Camera. Designed and Built for Industrial Use

Factory Tough Industrial Camera white paper

For a machine vision camera to be designed for continuous use in factories, processing plants, manufacturing, automotive, and other heavy industrial operations, they must tolerate challenging conditions: wide ranging temperatures, constantly moving and vibrating machinery, dust and moisture exposure, and multiple sources of electromagnetic noise, all while imaging targets flawlessly without interruption. In addition, a key challenge to consider with camera design is how to reduce costly maintenance from degrading performance or even failure due to industrial wear and tear. In this white paper, learn the specifications and testing certifications that makes a machine vision camera suitable for these tough industrial environments.
