Lenses and Modules

A-25H
The A-25H variable focus lens is dedicated to applications requiring fast response time and high optical power. It is especially suited to industrial applications.

A-25HX-P07 
The A-25HX-P07 is a packaged version of the A25H lens.  The lens is built-in inside a housing with a straight FPC cable that can be connected to a standard 1 mm pitch FPC connector.

 

A-25HX-P06 
Identical to A-25HX-P07 but with a bent flex cable.

A-39N 
The A-39N lens is designed specifically for variable focus products needing a larger clear aperture than A-25H lenses: long focal objectives, large sensors, C-Mount objective lenses, laser beam shaping, etc.

A-39NX-P04 
The A-39NX-P04 is the packaged version of the A-39N lens.  The lens is built-in inside a housing with a bent FPC cable that can be connected to a standard 1 mm pitch FPC connector.

 

C-S-25H0-026 
The C-S-25H0-026 lens integrates a 2.6 mm EFL fixed lens module and an A-25H0 variable focus lens in an M12 receptacle (S-mount). It is compatible with imaging sensors up to 1/2.5’’ diagonal.

C-S-25H0-038
The C-S-25H0-038 integrates a 3.8 mm EFL fixed lens module and an A-25H0 variable focus lens in an M12 receptacle (S-mount). It is compatible with imaging sensors up to 1/3’’ diagonal.

 

C-S-25H0-047
The C-S-25H0-047 integrates a 4.7 mm EFL fixed lens module and an A-25H0 variable focus lens in an M12 receptacle (S-mount). It is compatible with imaging sensors up to 1/2.4’’ diagonal.

 

C-S-25H0-075 
The C-S-25H0-075 integrates a 7.5 mm EFL fixed lens module and an A-25H0 variable focus lens in an M12 receptacle (S-mount). It is compatible with most imaging sensor formats up to 1/2.5’’ diagonal.

 

C-S-25H0-096 
The C-S-25H0-096 integrates a 9.6 mm EFL fixed lens module and an A-25H0 variable focus lens in an M12 receptacle (S-mount). It is compatible with most imaging sensor formats up to 1/1.8’’ diagonal.

 

C-S-39N0-158 
The C-S-39N0-158 integrates a fixed lens module and an A-39N0 variable focus lens in an M12 receptacle (S-mount). The module is built-in with an FPC cable, and can be connected to a standard 1 mm pitch FPC connector. It can therefore be very easily integrated in a standard M12 sensor board. The module is compatible with imaging sensor formats up to 1/3" diagonal. 

C-C-39N0-160 
The C-C-39N0-160 is an electronically focus controllable C-Mount objective, based on the A-39N0 lens. It incorporates all necessary electronic components to drive the lens, and just needs a DC power supply; focus can be controlled through either an RS232, I²C, Analog or SPI input. With a 16 mm EFL, and compatible with 2/3’’ sensors, it is specifically designed for machine vision applications.

C-C-39N0-250 
Same as C-C-39N0-160 but with a 25mm EFL, and an integrated manual iris.

C-u-25H0-075-03 
The C-u-25H0-075-03 is based on an inverted and modified C-S-25H0-075. Combined with the use of specific extension rings, either for C-Mount or M12, an inexpensive AutoFocus microscope can be built. The module is built-in with an FPC cable, and can be connected to a standard 1 mm pitch FPC connector. This module can be driven by the same drivers as the A-25H0.

 

Variable Focus Liquid Lens Driver Boards

C-C Series Com Board
This board is an USB to RS232-12 V / RS232-3.3 V / I²C / SPI converter. Connected to a PC with a USB cable on one hand, and to the C-C- Series lens on the other hand, with a specific cable (delivered with the board), it allows to communicate directly with any of the C-C Series variations using FocusLab C. A potentiometer allows also controlling directly the C-C Series voltage without a computer.

USB-M Drivboard
This board includes a Maxim driver, a 4 pin FPC connector for both A-Series and C-Series lenses. It can be very easily driven through USB thanks to the Focuslab C software, delivered with the development kits.  Its very small form factor enables customers to use this board directly into any PC-driven application with no extra hardware development.

Maxim Drivboard
This board includes a Maxim driver and a 4 pin FPC connector for both A-Series and C-S- Series lenses. It has a 4 pin JST connector for DC power supply and for I²C communication. It has been designed for fast driving of the liquid lens directly from a microcontroller, an FPGA, a DSP, etc. A cabled JST connector is supplied with the board.

 

Microchip HV892 Drivboard 
This board includes a Microchip HV892 driver and a 4 pin FPC connector for both A-Series and C-S- Series lenses. It has a 4 pin JST connector for DC power supply and for I²C communication. It has been designed for fast driving of the liquid lens directly from a microcontroller, an FPGA, a DSP, etc. A cabled JST connector is supplied with the Microchip HV892 Drivboard.

Software

FocusLab C
FocusLab C allows controlling the C-Mount lens through the C-C Series Com Board. The software controls the output voltage on the lens. A specific dialog box enables to send advanced commands to the C-Mount lens. A LabView VI is also provided to control the C-Mount lens through a LabView program. A specific documented DLL allows integrating this in a C-code program. Focuslab C allows also to control the USB-M Drivboard.
