Second life for x18 motorized lens
Replacing imager was a matter of unscrewing old one and screwing on C1 PCB – mounting hole spacing matched. And talking of controller – it was not even necessary to adjust motion parameters to make it work, stock firmware was usable out of the box. To be honest it took longest to solder wires to FFC adapter board.
- Limit switches (opto-interrupters)!
- There is no backlash or hysteresis in motion platform
- Switchable 650nm LOW pass filter
It is possible to calibrate lens for super fast zoom re-adjustment while keeping focus locked. See test results below (don’t judge dust specks on the sensor).
