VisionGauge's® Motorized Zoom and Focus

VisionGauge® has built-in support for motorized optical systems. With VisionGauge®, both the zoom and focus axes can be motorized using either stepper motors or encoded servomotors. VisionGauge's® user-interface is simple, straightforward and intuitive and gives you full control over your motorized optical system. With VisionGauge®, you can use motorized optics in both operator-driven and fully-automated systems.

VisionGauge® allows you to set both the zoom and focus velocities at runtime. And like all of the other variables in VisionGauge®, these settings can be saved to disk and automatically re-loaded at startup.

With encoded motorized zoom optics, VisionGauge® is continuously aware of the system's optical magnification as you zoom in and out. This means that VisionGauge® is able to carry out high-accuracy measurements at any time, over the full zoom range of the optics. With encoded motorized zoom optics, VisionGauge® can go to programmable and repeatable zoom positions.

VisionGauge's® calibration procedure for encoded motorized zoom optics is very straightforward. The user begins by indicating the number of calibration points that he wants to enter and VisionGauge® distributes these points uniformly over the full zoom range of the optics. For each calibration point, VisionGauge® then brings the optics to the appropriate zoom position and prompts the user to carry out a simple field-of-view calibration. Once all of the points have been entered, VisionGauge® saves the calibration data to disk. As always, this calibration data can be password protected. VisionGauge® will then automatically read-in the calibration data on startup. And even though you only need to calibrate the system at a limited number of zoom positions, VisionGauge® is able to carry out high-accuracy measurements at any position over the full zoom range of the optics by interpolating very accurately between the calibration points.
