Visualizing polarization

The CX polarization cameras offer you an easy way to inspect demanding surfaces and materials with image processing. The cameras use the polarization characteristics of the light, simultaneously capturing the angle of polarization (AOP), the degree of polarization (DOLP), or a combination of both (ADOLP). They utilize Sony Polarsens CMOS sensors that feature an additional polarization level consisting of four polarization filters (0°, 45°, 90°, and 135°) on the pixel level. As a result, invisible material characteristics such as residual stress in glass or plastic as well as defects in carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) and barely visible quality differences of highly reflected surfaces become visible and can be evaluated. This way, instead of a complex testing system with various polarizing filters or a multi-camera system, all that is required is an industrial camera and a single image – significantly reducing the complexity and the system costs and offering a simple, cost-effective inline solution.

Your benefits
  • Simple capturing of moving objects as an inexpensive inline solution
