Small. Smart. Attachable. Lucana Abacus is one embedded laser sensor

Lucana Abacus

Lucana ABACUS is a Laser Profile Sensor for 3D Robotic Guidance designed for high industrial reliability.

The core of Lucana Abacus is a powerful software that enables users to create advanced robotic guidance applications. Any robot programmer can get up and running in minutes. Lucana Abacus utilizes liquid lens technology that enables much larger depth range measurement than conventional sensors.

What Is Lucana Abacus?

The attachable solution for any robot, anywhere.

Lucana ABACUS is a standalone device. Just supply 24V power and an ethernet cable and your robot can immediately start communicating with the sensor.

You can setup the sensor from any PC connected to the sensor network or from teach pendant of supported robot Brands.

Technology Insight

Auto focus liquid lens

Now with auto-focus technology. This technology allows for much faster image acquisition with objects in focus.

Mesure range

The LIQUID LENS technology allows a wider working range for applications, auto focus camera can determine the best focus at different distances without changing the acquisition parameters.


  • The LIQUID LENS technology enables much deeper depth measurement that is not possible with conventional fixed focus sensors
  • Depth image is always in focus for greater resolution


Lucana Caius is a ground breaking software that allows users to setup measurement configurations with point and click interface. No programming is needed at any time. Pre-defined shapes allow wide range of measurement options.
