3. What is the software development tool chain for the RealSense cameras?

 

Intel's RealSense SDK currently supports the F200 camera (the now-unavailable predecessor of the SR300) and the SR300 camera. 

 

Active development of tools for the R200 ceased at the '2016 R2' SDK version, though the open-source SDK Librealsense will continue to support it with updates.

The ZR300 camera is supported by the RealSense SDK for Linux.

4. Which operating systems (OS) do the RealSense camera SDKs support?

 

The RealSense SDK supports Windows 10, or Windows 8.1 for R200 (with an OS update), and Windows 10 only for the SR300.

 

The RealSense SDK for Linux is only supported on Ubuntu 16.04 running on Intel® Joule 570x.

Open-source RealSense camera support for Linux and Mac OSX users of the F200, R200 and SR300 cameras is also provided by the Librealsense SDK.

5. What are the UL laser safety certificate numbers for the RealSense camera range?

 

F200

 

Laser camera module, "Intel® RealSenseTM 3D Camera Front F200", Model(s) H53987-XXX (A)

 

R200 / LR200

 

Notes: the LR200 is an almost identical version of the R200 with improved RGB quality and newer IR emitter components.  There are also two listings for the R200 because there have been two versions of the circuit board, the original and a smaller, more power-efficient later version.

 

Laser camera module, "Intel® RealSenseTM 3D Camera Rear LR200", Model(s) J31114-XXX(A)

Laser camera module, "Intel® RealSenseTM 3D Camera Rear R200", Model(s) H55024-XXX(A), H72161-XXX(A)

Laser camera peripheral, "Intel® RealSenseTM 3D Camera Rear R200", Model(s) H81017-XXX(A)

 

ZR300

 

Laser camera module, "Intel® RealSenseTM 3D Camera Rear ZR300", Model(s) J27384-XXX(A)

 

SR300

 

Laser camera module, "Intel® RealSenseTM Camera SR300 (Falcon Cliffs)", Model(s) H89061-XXX, J26805-XXX (A)

 

The database that the certificate numbers are sourced from can be viewed at the UL certificate website.

7. How may I use RealSense technology for commercial purposes?

 

The official policy on the Intel online store pages for the RealSense developer kits is:

 

"The Camera is intended solely for use by developers with the Intel® RealSense SDK for Windows solely for the purposes of developing applications using Intel RealSense technology. The Camera may not be used for any other purpose, and may not be dismantled or in any way reverse engineered."

 

There are commercial products that make use of the RealSense technology, such as drones, laptop PCs and the Razer Stargazer camera, which is a Razer-branded version of the SR300. The distinction is that they contain the RealSense camera -circuit board- and do not make use of the Developer Kits purchased from the Intel store.

 

The development kits that are for sale on the Intel store are meant for development purposes only. They come with a 90-day return policy. Therefore they are not recommended for commercial use or productization. 

 

For commercial use, Intel recommends that you purchase camera modules (they are what is inside the development kit) from Intel approved distributors.

8. How may I ask about purchasing RealSense components in bulk quantities?

 

If you want to use RealSense cameras in a product and want to buy in bulk, you should purchase the camera modules at Intel distributors. Just about any Intel distributor can order these modules for you.
