Camera and lens


The camera can be fixed using the four M3 mounting holes (labeled M on Fig. 17).

Depending on your Asycube size and your working distance, different lens may be used. Main dimensions of the different vision kits (See Fig. 18) are summarized in Table 6 and in Table 7

The working distance is the distance between the front face of the lens and the Asycube plate (see Fig. 19). The available height for the robot is equal to the working distance minus the height of the plate’s border.


The lens length given in this table is the maximal possible length of the lens. The length will change when you adjust the focus.

Mounting the camera and the lens

  • Unpack the camera and the lens. The lens is already mounted on the camera.

  • Fix the camera using the four M3 mounting holes (labeled M on Fig. 17).

Camera positioning

  • Camera must be placed orthogonal to the Asycube and above its center.


    The orthogonality between the camera and the Asycube is critical for accurate part detection. Particular care must be taken at this stage of installation.

  • Distance between the front face of the lens and the Asycube plate has to correspond to the working distance (see Table 7).

  • Make sure that the field of view is defined as the inner edge of the plate frame. The EYE+ logo must be oriented opposite to the Asycube connectors (Fig. 20).


We recommend you design the camera mounting so that it can be adjusted in x, y and z. Make sure that the camera position can be adjusted mechanically with a tolerance of -10mm/+30mm in z and -10mm/10mm in x and y.
