The M3-FS is New Scale’s newest miniature all-in-one focus module for high-performance industrial, medical and scientific OEM cameras. The device is a drop-in replacement for the original M3-F focus module, with compatible size (20 x 23 x 16 mm) and identical electrical connections and software commands. Offering improved dynamic tilt and linear accuracy, and high dynamic stability to minimize pixel shift with changing camera orientation, the focus module is suited for use in miniature handheld, portable and mobile systems. The module operates on 3.3 Vdc with very low power needed to move the lens, and zero power needed to hold the lens in any position. Aluminum structure and an innovative ball bearing lens guide mechanism give the new device a 3x improvement in tilt and accuracy over the original M3-F module. The M3-FS also accepts lens diameters up to M16, whereas the M3-F accepts up to M12. The DK-M3-FS-1.8-61.5-M12/16 developer’s kit is available now at $900. The kit includes one M3-FS focus module (accepting M16x1 threaded lens), an adapter to accept an M12x0.5 threaded lens, Pathway software, and a USB adapter to connect the module to a PC.
