Stationary Mounting

All Zivid 3D camera models can be stationary mounted. We recommend using the Zivid Stationary Mount.

Zivid Stationary Mount

Zivid Stationary Mount is a low-profile, flexible camera mount with a unique, single screw tightening system which makes adjustments fast and precise. It is compatible with Zivid One+ and Zivid Two cameras.

The datasheet and user guide in PDF and CAD files can be found at Accessories Downloads.

Mounting Instructions

In the box, you will find the Zivid Stationary Mount and mounting screws. The following tools are required for installation:

  • Hex 4 and 6 mm

  • Torx 20, 25, and 30

The mount can be re-configured to be either in pan-tilt or tilt-roll. Before you install the mount, evaluate which configuration best suits your application.

Tip

Installing the mount on the side of a horizontal profile in tilt-roll configuration provides two benefits. The roll joint allows aligning the camera perpendicular to the scene, while the roll joint enables tilting it to avoid reflections and interference from the background.

To re-configure the mount, loosen the four M4 screws top and bottom plate, and re-attach them in the new configuration with 4 Nm torque.

It is straightforward to install our stationary mount to a V-slot profile with M6 screws and T-nuts.

The mount can be installed on any surface of the profile with the camera oriented in any direction, horizontally or vertically, pointing up, down, or sideways.

Loosen the center bolt to adjust the angle of the camera. Tighten the center bolt with a 6 mm hex key to a torque of 8-9 Nm for a good grip if exposed to vibrations. Torque of 5 Nm is sufficient for lab use on a stable surface.

Use the 360-degree laser engraved markings to precisely adjust the angles. The markings also allow remembering the camera orientation for your system if you need to dismount the camera and mount it back later.
