Computar P-Iris Lenses Now Compatible with Allied Vision Technologies GT1290 Series

August 30, 2012, Commack, NY – CBC has announced the Allied Vision Technology’s GT1290 Series cameras are now compatible with Computar  AG3Z3112KCS-MPIR-V31 & AG4Z1214KCS-MPIR-V31 P-Iris lenses. Allied Vision Technologies (AVT) is a leading manufacturer of digital machine vision cameras with FireWire, Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) and Camera Link interface. AVT is the supplier of choice for cameras used for industrial inspection, automation, medical imaging, scientific research, ITS & traffic monitoring, security, and many other demanding applications.

The P-Iris control optimizes the image quality by enabling the best iris position to be set based on multiple factors. The precise digital iris control enables the cameras software to communicate with the lens allowing it to set the F-Stop where the lens performs optimally. At the same time, the P-Iris camera software electronically adjusts the gain (amplification of the signal level) based on the F-Stop, eliminating the need for a neutral density filter and maintaining the optimal iris position for as long as possible. The result is improved image contrast, resolution and depth of field. With the P-Iris feature you may select or prioritize the best iris mode suitable for your application (best quality or best depth of field).

“It is exciting to see the capabilities of the P-Iris lenses used to their full advantage by a company already well recognized in the digital machine vision market. The P-Iris allows iris control that is both automatic and precise resulting in significantly improved performance.” according to Jim Holihan, Vice President, CBC (AMERICA) Corp.
