CX1 Series 3D Scanners

The CX1 sensor unit (CODA unit) is at the heart of every Codamotion 3D system for indoor applications. 

Uniquely, the CX1 combines three motion sensing arrays into one unit. This allows a standalone CX1 unit to make a complete 3D measurement without reference to any other units. It also means that the unit can be pre-calibrated and sealed. All the user does is to point the unit at the action.

  • A CX1 unit is just 800mm long and weighs just 5kg!  A user can move a CX1 unit to a new location, set up and start recording data in minutes without ever needing to recalibrate!  
  • The unique Codamotion sensing technology allows the CX1 to achieve resolutions as high as 1 in 70,000 within its field of view (equivalent to 1/10th of a pixel in a 50 Megapixel camera).
  • A CX1 uniquely identifies each marker with 100% reliability, so 3D marker trajectories are available for immediate analysis and display on a host computer with achievable latency (delays) of less than 0.5 milliseconds, perfect for real time applications.

The captured field expands at 1.6 x the distance from the CODA unit.  Maximum accuracy is achieved between 2.0m and 4.5m from the unit (the total capture volume within which maximum accuracy is maintained is approximately 75 cubic metres), though it is possible to go out to 10m and beyond with high power markers under normal laboratory conditions.

Markers, Drivers, Wands, Clusters & Pointers

  • High Power Markers

    High Power Markers

    Codamotion active markers are available in two ‘types’.  This High Power option comes in a variety of lead lengths from 100 to 600mm. 
  • Standard Power Markers

    Standard Power Markers

    Codamotion active markers are available in two ‘types’. The Standard Power marker comes in a variety of lead lengths from 100 to 600mm. 
  • Clusters & Pointers

    Clusters & Pointers

    Codamotion clusters define a rigid body that gives 6-degree of freedom information when attached to, for example, limb segments.
  • Wands for Gait

    Wands for Gait

    Gait Wand Sets help to provide fast, accurate measurements of human gait, using a proven derivative of the Helen Hayes model as a basis.
  • Drive Boxes

    Drive Boxes

    Codamotion active markers can be powered by our latest quad marker drive boxes or any of the marker drive boxes in the standard range. 
  • Pelvic Frame

    Pelvic Frame

    The pelvic wand has been specially designed to track the pelvis position and orientation. 
  • Marker Extension Leads

    Marker Extension Leads

    Marker extension leads are available in many lengths to suit varying applications.
  • Acromion Marker Cluster

    Acromion Marker Cluster

    The acromion marker cluster is a 4-marker cluster especially designed to track the movement of the scapula.  
  • Mini Cluster Plate

    Mini Cluster Plate

    The mini cluster plate can be used as a rigid body with four markers to give 6 DoF data for the body (as in our cluster product range), but the plate comes without a marker drive box or markers intergrated into it, allowing users to form their own rigid bodies.
  • Wrist Plate

    Wrist Plate

    The Codamotion wrist plate allows you to attach the marker drive box to the body using straps very simply without the use of tape.

Tripods, Cases, Mounts & Other Accessories

  • Wall Mounting Brackets

    Wall Mounting Brackets

    Our wall mounting brackets enable our clients to mount their CODA sensor units (CX1 or CXS) wherever they choose. The bracket also fixes to the heavy duty tripods for ease of movement.
  • Heavy Duty Tripod

    Heavy Duty Tripod

    The Codamotion heavy duty tripod is used with all systems to securely hold each CODA unit in place. This also allows the CODA units to be easily moved as required for the application.
  • External Strobe Unit

    External Strobe Unit

    The Codamotion External Strobe Unit is an extremely powerful additional accessory which is particularly useful to illuminate the Codamotion scanner strobe signal in large or outdoor spaces.
