P-IRIS Controller supports new lenses as well as IP67 camera housing

We have already introduced you to our P-IRIS Controller created by our development department. We have just upgraded the controller, and the P-IRIS controller is now compatible with two other Theia lenses and Orca IP67 camera housing.

P-IRIS Controller is a control unit for Basler ace cameras and lenses with stepper motors that can electronically control focus, zoom, aperture and IR filter of Theia TL1250P lenses with a focal length of 12–50 mm. We have informed you about its launch in the following news: New product: P-IRIS Controller for transport systems (ITS).

Typical applications for P-IRIS:

Typical use of P-IRIS controller includes transport applications (ITS) where it is needed to recognize number plates of passing vehicles (ANPR applications) or to check for the presence of vignettes.

Other successful applications include usage of the P-IRIS on public transport vehicles – integrity and condition of trolley wires is checked when the vehicle passes under a trolley wire. It is also used in the production of bearings when it is necessary to sharply capture bearings of different size (ranging from millimetres to centimetres) without changing a lens – an impossible task with a conventional lens.

There are definitely many other applications where it is necessary to electronically control focus, aperture, zoom or IR filter.

Newly supported Theia lenses

For greater variability of the P-IRIS controller and coverage of a wider range of focal lengths, we have modified the controller so that it is compatible with two other Theia lenses – the TL410P model with 4-10mm focal length and the TL936P one with 9-36mm focal length. All three supported lenses are designed for CS-mount.

Compatibility with IP67 autoVimation Orca camera housing

Since P-IRIS Controller is often used for transport applications, the controller needed to be fitted with a housing that prevents moisture, water and dust from entering the electronics of the control unit, camera and the lens. That is why we used the autoVimation Orca camera housing and fitted the P-IRIS with a mechanism for mounting in the housing. Thanks to the housing, the P-IRIS can be used for outdoor applications and complies with IP67 standard.
