Calibration Plates

MVTec provides precision-manufactured calibration plates to its customers. The plates are necessary to accurately calibrate a machine vision setup. MVTec’s calibration plates are available in different materials and in sizes ranging from 2cm×2cm up to 32cm×32cm. Contact your local distributor for assistance with choosing the right plate size and material for your application.

Available Calibration Plates

Below you can see which calibration plates are available for our different software products and versions. You can also download an overview of the respective calibration plates as well as their data sheet.

Supported by MERLIC

MERLIC supports new calibration plates (Product Id. 20118-20125, 20977-20978) featuring an improved ease of use. These plates do not have to be completely visible in the calibration images. This especially simplifies multi-view calibration and the placement of the calibration plate close to the image border. Furthermore, the new design contains a significantly larger number of calibration marks, which allows reliable calibration with fewer calibration images. The dimensions of the calibration plates are a little larger than the structure on the plate in order to allow an easy handling.

Further information on calibration can be found in the quick info of MERLIC and within the documentation of the corresponding tools.

Please note, customers must possess a MERLIC license prior to ordering a calibration plate.

Supported by HALCON 12 and higher HALCON versions

HALCON 12 and higher versions support new calibration plates (Product Id. 20118-20125, 20977-20978) featuring an improved ease of use. These plates do not have to be completely visible in the calibration images. This especially simplifies multi-view calibration and the placement of the calibration plate close to the image border. Furthermore, the new design contains a significantly larger number of calibration marks, which allows reliable calibration with fewer calibration images. The dimensions of the calibration plates are a little larger than the structure on the plate in order to allow an easy handling.

Further information on calibration can be found in the "Solution Guide III-C (3D Vision)" and in the section "Calibration" of the "Reference Manual".

Please note, these calibration plates are only supported by HALCON 12 and higher HALCON versions. Customers must possess a development license of HALCON 12 or a higher HALCON version prior to ordering a calibration plate.
