Sensor NIGDuo

The stereoscopic camera sensor – NIGDuo

Two pairs of eyes see more than one!

Full use, whether for edge or strip position measurement

You have little space in the line and changing strip positions and want to determine the strip position with the highest precision? Then our stereoscopic camera sensor NIGDuo is just right for you. It can be used flexibly both as an edge position sensor and as a strip position sensor.

In the NIGDuo-Top system, the light source is located above the strip, so that the influence of dripping liquids and contaminants (dust, dirt, oil, grease, etc.) is greatly reduced.

The NIGDuo-Back system is used where space is at a premium and the highest precision is required. The light source is located below the strip.

Your advantage:

  • Low space requirement
  • Both the sensor housing and the light source are located above the strip
  • Simple calibration
  • Precise, fast measurement

Two CMOS area scan cameras, NIGeye, which are aligned at a defined angle to each other, are located in a stainless steel housing. A controller board is also integrated. The sensor is designed to operate without any additional external electronics. For edge position measurements, one sensor head is used, for strip position measurements two sensor heads, one of which serves as master.


In addition, an LED incident light is required above the strip, the light is projected onto the strip in the entire field of view of the cameras.


The LED light source is located below the strip.
