Camera Lucid Helios HLS003S-001ETX2

Camera Lucid Helios HLS003S-001ETX2

Embedded model of the compact Time of Flight camera with monochromatic Sony DepthSense IMX556PLR sensor and GigE Vision interface, which allows to capture high-quality images with depth data.

Helios is a compact Time of Flight (Tof) camera with superior depth precision with a working range of up to 6m. Unlock the potential of Time of Flight in a variety of industrial applications including robotics, 3D inspection and logistics.



  • Resolution: 640 x 480 pixels (0.3 MP) in monochrome.
  • Frames per second: 30 fps at full resolution.
  • Sensor: CMOS Global Shutter sensor Sony DepthSense IMX556PLR.
  • Video Interface: 4-Lane MIPI D-PHY CSI-2 (FFC)
  • Lens Mount: Integrated lens with 6mm focal length (not user changeable)

What is the Helios Time of Flight (ToF) Camera?

The Helios industrial camera detects 3D depth of objects. It features Sony’s DepthSense ToF sensor, along with 4 VCSEL laser diodes operating at 850nm. The camera calculates depth data by measuring the time it takes for light emitted from the diodes to reflect off objects in the scene and return to the sensor for each point of the image. This design results in high accuracy of < 5 mm with a precision (standard deviation) of 2 mm at 1.0 m distance.

Sony DepthSense Technology

Sony combined Tof with backside illuminated sensor (BSI) technology to create the new DepthSense ToF sensor. The BSI technology provides better light collection efficiency in NIR wavelengths. The new Sony IMX556PLR iw a 1/2in sensor running at 640 x 480px at 30 fps.

Helios ToF Camera

This Helios camera model (P/N: HLS003S) is designed to be connected to a host PC running either Windows or Linux. Depth information is processed on the Helios ISP and streamed through the Gigabit Ethernet connection. HLS003S: 640 x 480 at 30 FPS, Gigabit Ethernet, Working Range: up to 6m

Helios ToF Camera

Helios Embedded ToF Camera

This Helios Embedded model (P/N: HLS003S-001ETX2US1) is designed to be connected to a NVIDIA® Jetson TX2. The Helios Embedded camera module streams raw data via a MIPI connection. Depth information is processed on the Jetson TX2 using included Arena SDK. HLS003S-001ETX2US1: 640 x 480 at 30 FPS, MIPI Connection, Working Range: up to 6m

Helios Embedded ToF Camera

Easy 3D Controls

The Arena SDK includes easy to use controls for the Helios ToF camera. ArenaView allows for 2D and 3D views: 2D view allows one to see the intensity and depth of the scene from the camera’s perspective. 3D view displays a point cloud of the scene and allows users to manipulate the orientation in real-time. Additionally, settings can be changed in real-time such as false color overlay, depth range adjustments, out of range color settings and more.
