Array Tech: camera two, the mechanical design.
I did the mechanical design for the second version of the camera head. It features an all digital interface to the host "GSP" board RIP, and my own design for the microstage and lens assembly.
CAMERA, whole - this image shows all views of the camera. 17KB
CAMERA, top - looking down at the top of the camera we can see the microstage assembly and the optical geometry.. 14KB
CAMERA, side - Left side view also shows microstage and light path.. 25KB
MICROSTAGE, whole - one of my favorite designs. This is the whole print for the microstage. This design is carefully integrated with the PCB designs inside the camera. 26KB
MICROSTAGE, partial view - a closer view of the some of the microstage elements. 17KB
HIMGFAB - shows the coordination of the IMG card PCB and the microstage and the optical path. 43KB
FABSADL - the "saddle" in which the image chip rides. This is the last (X&Y motion) piece of the microstage which mates directly with the sensor array chip and its supporting "IMG" card. 23KB
FABSADL - several views and cross sections of the part. 23KB
FABBASE - the base of the microstage is pinned directly through the front of the camera into the lens barrel mount (see below). 19KB
FABRLMNT - the forward-most piece of the microstage assembly, the lens barrel mount, receives a Nikon 55 Micro lens. 31KB
FABDIG - shows the mating of the "HDIG" card (see a2) with the camera back. 33KB
FABBACK - mechanical drawing for the camera back. 14KB
