The Scorpion 3D Stinger™ System is designed to be used in 3D Stereo Vision
applications with or without structured light. It is compatible with the latest 3D version of Scorpion Vision Software and locates objects moving at very high speeds in 3D in real-time.

The system is comprised of an industrial PC running the latest version of Scorpion Vision Software, power supply, multiple cameras, laser and infrared projectors, enclosed in an industrial housing.

The unit is designed to be used in 3D Robot Vision, 3D Laser Triangulation, 3D Gauging, 3D Assembly Verification and other advanced Machine Vision applications.

The Scorpion Stinger™ 3D Foodsafe version comes with all the same functionality of the Scorpion Stinger™ 3D, with the addition of a rugged stainless steel enclosure designed to withstand the harshest of food production, and agricultural environments.

The Scorpion 3D Box Camera™ is a cost-effective, high performance and flexible industrial camera enclosed with integrated illumination. The camera is used for 3D image generation, 3D measurement and 3D objects location. The 3D camera is provided in two basic versions: A standard version with optional integrated White or IR LEDs An RPP Camera version a red or IR version up to 250 mW

The Scorpion Box Camera is designed to be used industrial applications. The Box camera is the ideal choice when you need to look at a specific detail in an advanced inspection or assemply verification task. The camera is used for crack detection, colour verification and 2D scanning.

It is connected to a PC with a GigE connection, POE (Power over Ethernet) or an USB3 cable. Every camera is factory calibrated to a task with specific resolution at the selected working distance.

The global shutter Scorpion 3D Venom Camera excels in short to medium size baseline applications using a single colour or monochrome camera with resolution from VGA to 20 MP. Two virtual 3D cameras are created by a clever mirror design that focuses at a user specified working distance.

Target applications include ID tracking, object tracking, height measurement, object counting, assembly verification and more. Fast feature location and 3D image generation will support fast tracking framerates up to 200 fps.


The SC2000E is an extremely compact, cost effective, and full featured vision sensor with a rich suite of integrated vision tools. The SC2000E comes with integrated light source, image acquisition, image processing, IO, and supports RS232 and multiple Ethernet protocols including TCP, UDP, Modbus TCP, PROFINET, Ethernet/IP and FTP.  The SC2000E is operated an monitored using the SCMVS client software.

The SC2000E is available 0.4 MP & 1.6 MP monochrome models, with optional:

  • Red / Blue / White light sources
  • Visible light polarisation mirror to filter out glare
  • SV/VT Series HMI display units

The SC2000Pro series smart vision sensors compact equipped with high precision positioning and measurement algorithms, and a large set of vision tools including feature matching, fixturing, brightness measurement, blob detection, various measurement functions, N point calibration, coordinate conversion, colour extraction, colour measurement, colour transformation, and many more.

The SC2000Pro supports RS232 and multiple Ethernet communication protocols including TCP, UDP,  Modbus TCP, PROFINET, Ethernet/IP, FTP. 

The SC2000Pro is available in 0.4MP or 1.6MP models, with optional:

  • Monochrome / Colour
  • 6mm / 12.4mm / 14.8mm focal length
  • Red / Blue / White / NIR light sources
  • Polarisation filter
  • Display Interface Modules
  • Vertical / Coaxial cable connection

The SC3000 retains the same compact form factor and range of accessories and communication interfaces of the SC2000Pro vision sensor, and in addition packs more computing punch, and is programmed using the highly capable Hikrobot SCMVS software. 

The SCMVS client is a software application developed specifically for smart cameras. It supports visual inspection of real time images acquired by the device or images imported into the device. The visual solutions can be managed and edited in the software. Also, functions such as I/O settings, communication settings, time calibration, firmware upgrade, password settings and so on can be achieved in SCMVS.

The SC7000 series smart camera adopts proprietary deep learning algorithms from HIKROBOT, and the training environment is compatible with 3C electronics, metal, plastic, textile, photovoltaic, packaging and other industry products. It can provide sufficient support for detection, classification, and recognition in complex environments.
The computing power of the built-in high-performance deep learning platform can reach the desktop graphics card level, easily realising high-speed deep learning detection.

The SC7000 series smart camera supports RS232 and multiple Ethernet communication protocols including TCP, UDP,  Modbus TCP, PROFINET, Ethernet/IP, FTP. 

The SC7000 is available in 1.6MP or 6.0MP models, with optional:

  • Monochrome / Colour
  • 12.4mm / 14.8mm focal length integrated lens
  • C-Mount lens
  • Red / Blue / White / NIR light sources
  • Polarisation filter
  • Display Interface Modules

Hikrobot design and manufacture six different series of area scan cameras – CE/CA/CH/CB/CL/CS – spanning resolution from 0.3MP-151MP.

Compatible with GigE, 10GigE, USB 3, Camera Link and CoaXPress interfaces, Hikrobot area scan cameras provide excellent image quality by using high-quality CMOS and CCD chips.
