Arctic 39N Family

Arctic 39N0

Arctic 39N0









The Arctic 39N liquid lens is designed specifically for variable focus products needing a large clear aperture: long focal objectives, large sensors, C-Mount objective lenses, laser beam shaping… It is perfectly suited for applications such as industrial vision, medical imaging cameras, optical equipment and biometric devices.

Arctic 39N is based on Varioptic’s breakthrough liquid lens technology, allowing variable focus with absolutely no moving parts.

Arctic 39N features 20 diopters of dynamic range, guaranteeing 5 cm focus ability and offers the same low power consumption, high shock resistance and fast focus ability that have made the success of the Arctic series of liquid lenses.
