Gardasoft TR-CL 180

Gardasoft controller for Optotune liquid lenses

The TR-CL180 single-channel industrial lens controller, which has been developed in close collaboration with the liquid lenses manufacturer Optotune, provides a very accurate and repeatable control of tunable lenses.

The controllers include constant current lens drive and lens EEPROM data communications and are compatible with Optotune EL-10-30-CI and EL-16-40-TC lenses.

A configurable PCB version is available on request for OEM projects.

Reasons for Gardasoft TR-CL 180

GigE Vision integration with Triniti technology

The lens controllers are part of the Gardasoft Triniti machine vision platform, so users have seamless access and control of system cameras, lighting and lenses within the same environment (either via a conventional machine vision software like Common Vision Blox (CVB) or via a Triniti SDK). The Triniti technology helps monitor lens parameters like lifetime and temperature.

Calibrated lens control

The controller is fully current calibrated with lens temperature compensation. It provides a constant current lens drive and lens EEPROM data communications.

Fast focus change

The TR-CL series enables very fast dynamic lens control (1ms) in machine vision applications involving objects of varying heights.

Application benefits:

  • Industrial, precision control for Optotune lenses
  • Easy connection with cameras and lighting via Triniti intelligent machine vision platform
  • GigE Vision compliance, lenses therefore easily integrated with standard machine vision software
