New light source for the CIS with shape-from-shading

No color effects by using white light

The Contact Image Sensor with Shape-from-Shading illumination is now also available with white light.
This eliminates the influence of color effects for the 3D exposition especially for colored objects. In addition, it is now possible to scan objects without a red component, e.g. green or blue ones.
In the course of this development, we were able to increase the light output and improve the local spherical orientation of the incoming light rays. As a result, the contrast of the generated 3D images is significantly higher and the images appear sharper. This allows you to get even more out of your image processing. In the images you can see a coin in the different Shape-from-Shading representations.
