Ocular Robotics REN25 RobotEye Unit

The RobotEye REN25 NAKED is an implementation of our RobotEye technology designed to provide a general purpose high-performance two-axis optical pointing capability for use in OEM and prototype systems. As with all RobotEye systems, the sensor or source is able to remain completely stationary while the signal is directed about two axes. The REN25 NAKED optical path components can be specified at build time to match your chosen sensor.

The unprecedented motion bandwidth of the RobotEye REN25 NAKED allows the following types of behaviors to be achieved with ease.

Features

Robustness

The RobotEye REV25 Vision has been designed to operate in the harshest environments. RobotEye systems have a natural immunity to shock and vibration transmitted through the platform to which they are attached making them ideal for extended service on the ground, surface and air vehicles and other mobile equipment. This is achieved because the moving components in RobotEye systems are lightweight and supported at their periphery. In contrast to pan-tilt and gimbals systems have relatively large masses supported on shafts which under shock and vibration drive large forces back through the drive train shortening their serviceable lifetime. Other factors contributing to the reliability of the REV25 include:

  • The absence of any slip rings in the system which is due to the fact that all electronics including the camera remain completely stationary during operation eliminating the need to pass electrical signals through rotating joints.
  • The camera, motors and all electronics are located below the blue mounting flange as seen in the image on the adjacent page in a single enclosure or internal to the platform on which the REV25 is mounted simplifying environmental protection.

Imaging Options

A feature of the REV25, when compared to gimballed camera systems, is the freedom to use any C-mount camera of your choice. The REV25 is offered with an option for wide or narrow field optics which enable the user to select the optical arrangement that best suits their chosen camera and their application.
