See3CAM_30 - 3.4 MP Autofocus Low Light USB Camera Board with Liquid Lens

See3CAM_30 is a 3.4MP UVC Compliant, low light, autofocus USB camera with liquid lens. It is a two-board solution with AR0330 CMOS image sensor from ON Semiconductor and USB 3.1 Gen1 type C interface board. See3CAM_30 is a colour camera with S-mount lens holder and does not require any special camera drivers to be installed in the host PC. See3CAM_30 is customizable and it is a Ready-to-Manufacture camera with all the necessary firmware built in and compatible with the USB Video Class (UVC). It consumes less power and doesn't heat up. There is no mechanical movement like in VCM motor for autofocus. Hence the life of the lens increases.

"The Varioptic Caspian S module used in e-con Autofocus Camera allows close focus, unlimited number of cycles, low power consumption, and outstanding resistance to vibration and mechanical shocks. The e-con camera offers an ideal off the shelf solution for our customers who want to focus their design resources on the application rather than on the camera design." - Frederic Laune, Executive Director of Invenios (Varioptic), France
