C-Mount Focus-Tunable Lenses

POSTED 11/27/2012

C-Mount Focus Tunable Lenses from Edmund OpticsEdmund Optics (EO), the premier provider of optical components, introduces new C-Mount Focus-Tunable Lenses. These versatile lenses are ideally suited for a wide variety of imaging applications. 
 
Replaces multi-lens focus or zoom systems 
Edmund Optics' C-Mount Focus-Tunable Lenses combine Electrically-Focus Tunable Lenses with C-Mount compatible housings for easy mechanical integration into a wide range of imaging systems. When a control current is applied to the lens, its focal range is adjusted from +80 to +200 mm. This variable tuning range - the ability to adjust focal length - allows the user to replace multi-lens focus or zoom systems, saving space, time and cost.
 
Several coatings and an offset lens feature available 
In order to shift the focal range, any 12 mm diameter plano-convex (PCX) or plano-concave (PCV) lens with an edge thickness of less than 4.7 mm may be used as an offset lens. For imaging applications in the visible (VIS) spectrum, a C-Mount Focus-Tunable Lens with a pre-mounted -150 mm BK7 PCV lens is available. Near infrared (NIR) coating is also available. For planning and specification purposes, prescription data is also available for the user to model the effect an offset lens will have on the overall focal range. C-Mount Focus-Tunable Lenses are in-stock and available for immediate delivery for fast turnaround and excellent value.
