The Single camera V-STARS S8
system provides the highest accuracy and portability.
V-STARS/S8 is a 3D coordinate measurement system that uses a single INCA3
camera to make fast, accurate measurements.
It is portable and consists of a notebook computer, a single
high-resolution digital camera , the V-STARS software, and some
The INCA3 in the V-STARS S8 system is used to take pictures of the
measured object from several different locations. The different camera
locations are needed to ensure all points on the object are seen from
enough geometrically diverse locations to get good intersection angles for
The system measures
retro-reflective targets or projected targets generated by PRO-SPOT.
Images are taken with the INCA3 camera from several locations. The images
are then automatically processed using V-STARS software.
The V-STARS S8 system is capable of measurement accuracies better than 4um
+ 4um/m (0.020mm@4m, < 0.001"@160")
The single camera system is extremely portable. The entire system
(including notebook, camera and accessories) fits into two small cases
that can be hand carried aboard an airplane. So the system can go with you
anywhere in the world, and be immediately
available for work.
