Edmund Optics® (EO), the premier provider of optical and imaging components, is proud to announce that their TECHSPEC® Liquid Lens M12 Imaging Lenses received 2nd place in the Vision category of the 2019 Inspect Awards. The award was presented at the recent VISION Show in Stuttgart, Germany by Anke Grytzka-Weinhold, Editor-in-Chief of Inspect Magazine, and Dr. Heiko Baumgartner, Publishing Director of Wiley-VCH. Winners were voted on by more than 45.000 readers of Inspect, Messtec Drives Automation, and related online communities.

The award recognizes the versatility of the TECHSPEC® Liquid Lens M12 Imaging Lenses, which combine the performance of a compact high-resolution imaging lens with the flexibility of a liquid lens. "The combination of high resolution and integrated liquid lens technology makes the lenses ideally suited for high speed machine vision applications," commented Greg Hollows, Vice President of the Imaging Business Unit for Edmund Optics. "It is an honor to be a recipient of the Inspect Award again and to be recognized for our advanced technology and products."

The TECHSPEC® Liquid Lens M12 Lenses feature a high-resolution f/2,4 optical design with an integrated liquid lens for high throughput with fast electronic focus. This quick autofocus solution uses a two-piece housing design that allows easy access and replacement of the included liquid lens. For convenient access to the liquid lens control cable, the liquid lens can be rotated 180° inside the imaging lens.
