We offer unique components for machine vision, measurement and testing.
The Canon lens controller is an interface designed for the functional connection of industrial cameras and photographic lenses. This controller allows electronic control of focus and aperture of the lens, therefore allowing to use any type of Canon EF and EF-S lenses with Basler ace industrial cameras. Canon lenses can be controlled from a PC or other device using a set of commands via the RS485 interface.
The undeniable advantage of this solution is the use of great optical properties of comparatively low-cost camera lenses with industrial cameras, that have high quality sensors suitable for ITS and industrial applications with up to 12-megapixel resolution.
The ability to electronically control the aperture and focus also opens up the possibility of installation in difficult-to-reach areas and use in any light conditions, even with infrared auxiliary light at night. This illumination can be very precisely synchronized with the camera via its digital output.
The controller hardware consists of three basic parts:
This product was developed in cooperation with AŽD Praha.

The control unit is designed for Canon EF and EF-S lenses. Table contains a list of tested lenses. The absence of other lenses does not necessarily mean their incompatibility, but only the fact that they have not been tested yet. Using lenses by other manufacturers such as Tamron or Sigma is not possible, although they are designed for Canon cameras.
* The lens does not come with a zoom; it has a fixed focal length.
The camera and lens is always selected to fit the particular application; for a consult and help with selection contact please ATEsystem s.r.o.
