Mechanical and Electrical Installation

Mounting Specifications and Dimensions

Use the threaded holes on the bottom side of the device to mount it to a bracket. We recommend using DIN 912 / ISO 4762 Hexagon or ISO 14579 Hexalobular socket head cap screws in stainless steel (A2 or A4).

All Zivid 3D cameras have stationary and robot mounts available for purchase at shop.zivid.com.

The Zivid One+ is able to mount to most standard camera tripods. Zivid Two requires an adapter plate to be connected for this function.

The Zivid Two camera has three M5 mounting holes, one Ø5 positioning hole, and one Ø5x1 obround alignment hole. To ensure not to damage the threads, we recommend not exceeding the specified maximum torque value when fastening the screws.

For optimal performance we recommend a mounting surface flatness of ±0,05 mm or better. Firmly mounting the camera to an uneven surface can cases affect the calibration accuracy. We recommend using a Zivid Camera Mount to ensure problem free installation of the camera.

Note

The camera must be completely still during the acquisition to deliver the specified 3D image quality. Otherwise, it is completely safe to move it, e.g. when mounted on a robot or any other moving platform.

Cooling clearance

Zivid cameras use active and passive cooling, allow some space around the device for airflow, and do not block the air opening on its front and rear sides. Advise the technical specifications for the operating temperature range for your camera.

Signal protection

Do not install Zivid cameras and cables next to high voltage devices that can generate high levels of electromagnetic disturbance. Do not route camera cabling through the same trunks/conduits with AC power cables and cables emitting high levels of disturbance.

Positioning correctly

If possible, mount the camera at a slight tilt angle to avoid reflections and interference from the background. This also frees up space above the scene for easier access for tools and robots. Ambient light might reduce performance. Consider blocking direct light affecting the scene.

Please checkout Working Distance and Camera Positioning for more information on how to correctly position your camera.

Connecting to the computer

The Zivid Two camera uses Ethernet communication and needs 10 Gbps for best performance. Your computer may not have a port for 10 Gigabit Ethernet. In that case, you may can connect to it using an adaptor for 10GBASE-T (10 Gbps copper Ethernet) to Thunderbolt 3. At a reduced performance you can also use 1000BASE-T and NBASE-T (1 Gbps, 2.5 Gbps, and 5 Gbps over copper) to USB adapters.

  1. Plug the power supply into the “24V” port and into a power outlet.

  2. Plug the Ethernet cable into the camera and connect it to your computer.

Note

Ensure that all connections are screwed in tightly.
Check System requirements for performance considerations and review performance by observing the status Indication LEDs.

Warning

Use only Zivid approved Ethernet cables.

We support the following network topologies:
