OPTICS

Strongly effecting the image quality

Optotune EL - Fast focus-tunable lenses for increased flexibility

  • Electrically tunable, shape-changing lenses to enhance conventional lenses
  • Enable an extremely flexible electrical adjustment of the range of the focal length within milliseconds
  • Frequency feature allows focus adjustment within one exposure to focus on objects of different heights
  • Consist of a combination of optical fluids and a polymer membrane
  • Increase working distance range
  • Installed easily on the filter thread of the conventional lens or between the camera and the conventional lens
  • Controlled via a control unit and Hirose cable
  • No loss of image quality
  • Large aperture and focal tuning ranges

3 Reasons for Optotune EL ...

You want to have a continuously clear focus on objects of different heights?

Optotune EL lenses allow a very fast and flexible change of the focal length and thanks to the Frequency feature even several focus changes within one exposure can be realised. These electronic adjustments are performed within milliseconds. This means that a change of focus can be executed easily - and if necessary even within one single exposure - and objects of various sizes can be inspected either in short sequence or at the same time.

Your advantages:

  • Inspect changing objects comfortably without tedious mechanical adjustments of the system.
  • Increase throughput speed of production.
  • Save time and effort for sorting objects prior to inspection.
  • Benefit from the high quality of fixed focus lenses to keep image and inspection quality at the high level you are used to.

You have limited space for your optical system?

Changing the radius of the Optotune lenses just several microns can have the same effect as moving a conventional lens several centimetres. Due to the compact design of the Optotune lens, the size of the optical system is only slightly increased when you add the lens onto the filter thread of the conventional lens or between the camera and the conventional lens.

Your advantages:

  • Adapt your set-up easily to changing optical requirements.
  • The ability to fit your optical system into small spaces.
  • Gain great flexibility and peace of mind when the inspection object changes because despite adjusting the focus or focal length the size of the optical system remains the same.

You want to adjust your optical system with little effort?

The Optotune lens is simply screwed on the filter thread of your conventional lens or between the camera and the conventional lens. This means you avoid using any further tools or devices.

Your advantages:

  • Integrate the Optotune lens into your set-up within minutes.
  • Minimize the number of components and the risk of non-working parts.
