The highly innovative ZEISS COMET 6 16 M combines high-end technology, ergonomics and a compact design to offer optimum flexibility and precision for challenging tasks.

The COMET 6 16 M is highly flexible. The user can choose between a higher resolution and maximum speed at any time, achieving optimal performance for the specific usage. The low working distance even with large measuring fields enables simple, time-saving handling, especially in confined spaces.

The ability to simply and quickly change the measurement field makes it easy to adapt the system to the broadest range of objects and uses.

Modular Design

The unique concept of the ZEISS COMET 6 16 M sensor is based on a modular design with the tried-and-tested single-camera technology so that the measurement field size can be quickly adapted to the measuring task at hand.

High Resolution

With its high resolution, the high-end ZEISS COMET 6 16 M sensor with a 16 megapixel camera covers a previously unobtainable level of detail for the digitalisation of delicate objects or for uses requiring an extraordinary amount of detail.

High Light Power and Intelligent Projection

The COMET 6 16 M projection unit is characterized by an extremely bright LED and innovative optics. The light quantity projected onto the relevant object surface can be adapted to minimise undesired effects such as glare.

User-Oriented Ergonomics

The compact sensor design and handling system offer maximum user friendliness and ergonomic operation. The sensor can be adjusted easily, precisely and quickly – enabling the user to operate the system intuitively and conveniently.
