Discover the Industrial Helios2 Time-of-Flight Camera
A Quick Look
See how the new Helios2 compares to the original Helios. Compared to the previous generation, Helios2 offers a number of feature advancements making it a true ‘factory tough’ 3D Time of Flight camera. Featuring improved ToF performance, it produces exceptional 3D depth data with sub-millimeter precision (less than 1 mm). In addition, a robust hardware design provides IP67 rated enclosure with lens protection, GigE Vision PoE and industrial M12 connector up to 100 cable length.

The Helios2 combines a factory tough design with exceptional 3D precision and accuracy into a compact IP67 machine vision camera. Featuring Sony’s IMX556PLR DepthSense sensor, users are able to stream 3D point clouds in real time for use in a variety of industrial applications. Learn what’s new in the Helios2 and how it compares to the original Helios in this video.
Watch our extended Bin Picking webinar and learn how to improve your point cloud for challenging objects such as shiny metals and plastics. See how changes in image accumulation, exposure, gain, confidence, and spatial filtering settings can increase point cloud quality with before and after image examples using our ArenaView GUI with Helios2 3D ToF Camera.
Factory Tough Design, 24/7 Industrial Operation
The Helios2 ToF camera is engineered for high performance operation in industrial environments. Built for demanding 24/7 environments and a variety of industrial 3D applications such as robotics, 3D inspection, and logistics, including advanced material handling, pick and place, sorting, palletization / de-palletization, volume estimation, and more.
Raising the Bar for Superior Time of Flight
The Helios2 architecture is engineered for the next generation of high-performance 3D ToF imaging, delivering sub-millimeter precision and improved accuracy compared to the previous Helios. The calibration between the VCSELs and sensor timing is enhanced resulting in more 3D detail, along with improved attention to edge detection to reduce flying pixels and overall noise. 3D calculations are done on-camera, reducing CPU load and freeing up host PC resources.

Fast On-Camera Processing
Reduce the need for expensive host system components thanks to Helios’ on-camera processing. On-camera processing provides range, intensity, and confidence data which can produce live point cloud data.
Easy 3D Controls
The Arena SDK includes easy to use controls for the Helios2 ToF camera. ArenaView allows for 2D and 3D views: 2D view allows one to see the intensity and depth of the scene from the camera’s perspective. 3D view displays a point cloud of the scene and allows users to manipulate the orientation in real-time. Additionally, settings can be changed in real-time such as false color overlay, depth range adjustments, out of range color settings and more.
