The Optical Wizard 2.0
Oct 2009
Navitar Inc.Request Info
Online Tool for Optical Solutions
ROCHESTER, N.Y., Oct. 27, 2009 – Navitar Inc. has launched its second-generation interactive online lens selection tool, the Optical Wizard 2.0 online tool.

The first-generation version was used by engineers, end-users and OEMs who need a lens or a complete lens system for machine vision or electronic imaging applications. The new version expands on the existing functionality and offers a more appealing and streamlined look. The user-friendly interface and step-by-step process simplify lens selection and offer users 24/7 optical vision support and solutions.
Users are welcomed with a clean, vibrant home page where they can easily enter their lens requirements and selection criteria, such as camera sensor format, object size, working distance and desired camera mount. Additional features such as fluorescence, UV, telecentricity and motorization also can be specified on this main screen.

Once data is entered, users are immediately presented with product families that match their application requirements, along with pricing. A wider screen display, enhanced interactivity and additional visual elements are also key enhancements. As users move farther into the wizard and add items and accessories to complete their lens setup, they will encounter more in-depth descriptions, cleaner side-by-side system comparisons and the new ability to test drive a lens system.

Once the ideal system is created, the equipment is displayed with final pricing, mechanical drawings and further comparison between original user input and performance output of the lens selection. The user has the option to add items to an online shopping cart, contact the company and speak further to an applications engineer, or contact a dealer for complete system integration.

Applications markets include biotechnology and the life sciences: fluorescence imaging, cell identification, colony picking, cell sorting, live cell imaging, microfluidics, differential interference contrast/phase contrast imaging, crystal growth and in vivo studies in animals. Semiconductor and electronic systems users can find lens solutions for applications that include wafer metrology, photovoltaic and flat panel inspection, laser micromachining, UV imaging and short-wavelength infrared hyperspectral imaging.
