Integrated Lens Controller for PicSight GigE and Smart Cameras (16.12.08)
Get any PicSight Gigabit-Ethernet or Smart Camera with optional Integrated Lens Controller!
The optional Integrated Lens Controller controls any DC driven motorized lens with a voltage up to 24V and C-mount or CS-mount mounting. You can set and read back values for zoom, focus and aperture settings independently, right through the ethernet cable. The camera driver API offers a variety of control functions. Autofocus and Autogain can be implemented easily directly on a Pic Sight Smart Camera or on the host system. This offers a variety of possibilities to design your application.
Motorized lenses are specifically used in format specific or outdoor applications, to compensate frequently changing object distance, size or lighting conditions. Using the Integrated Lens Controller of your PicSight Camera, no additional controller hardware or cabeling is required. Just mount your lens, plug it into the SDR-26-pin connector (mini camera link) on the back side of the camera and you're done! This helps keeping hardware cost low, simplyfies cabeling and reduces the amount of space, needed by hardware.
