SVS-Vistek has simplified electrical control of focus and aperture on the company’s industrial cameras with a lens adapter for the Canon EF and EF-S lens series.
The SVS-EF-adapter is an essential element to meet the basic requirements of Industry 4.0.
Future image processing systems will have to be able to adapt faster and more flexibly to frequently changing tasks and perspectives. This requires a reliable, automatic optimisation of various parameters on changing focus levels without manual intervention.
The SVS EF adapter independently adjusts the focus and aperture of an SVS-Vistek industrial camera using the associated software. The depth of field can be adjusted automatically via the aperture.
Thanks to the embedding in the GenICam tree of the camera, the lens can be controlled as a GenICam application without additional drivers. This means that rapid integration into existing platforms can be implemented easily and in a time-efficient manner.
The SVS EF adapter is available in three different versions to ensure compatibility with cameras with M58, M42 and C-mount.
All cameras from SVS-Vistek offer the necessary prerequisites with regard to the hardware interface, the firmware is being gradually updated for all cameras. The large range of Canon optics is now available for machine vision applications.
The interaction of electronically focusable Canon optics, the SVS EF adapter and the innovative CMOS industrial cameras from SVS-Vistek enables users to design powerful, flexibly controllable image processing systems with sensor sizes up to full format.
These systems are suitable for a wide range of applications as quality assurance, the automotive industry, traffic telematics and optical metrology.
