The TOFcam-660 is a cost optimized 3D camera. It is based on theESPROS proprietary time-of-flight technology using the epc660TOF flagship chip. The camera controls the illumination and the imager chip to obtain distance and grayscale images. The depth images are compensated against ambient light, temperature and reflectivity of the scene. By using one of the offered ESPROS user interfaces, 3D point clouds in a cartesian coordinate system are available. Thanks to the high performance of the imager chip with the unique ambient light suppression, the camera can be used under full sunlight condition. This document allows a TOFcam-660 user easily to get the camera connected and started using a computer. It contains a description of all features of the device as well as all functions of GUI and ROS application. The complete description of interfaces, protocols and commands allows to connect the module to integrated systems. A software development kit (SDK) with all C++ source codes,libraries and drivers including is available by ordering the ESPROSepc660 evaluation kit.
