Interface and Connections

Jenoptik cameras come in a tough aluminium frame, this case is solid unlike other cameras and can help increase the longevity of the camera. With a photocoupler trigger out for non-interference output for TTL signals. 

Each camera has the same case and appearance, with a common C-Mount adapter to connect. Each camera uses a high throughput USB 3.0 interface, this ensures both flexibility and interface longevity.

Couplers and Connectors

With each camera purchase we will supply you with an adapter to fit the existing setup. Simply provide your current camera, microscope and any other information and we can supply all needed to get imaging with the new camera.
