The housing series offers protection for cameras with a sideways viewing direction. The Chameleon S series is available with or without lens tube. This allows the use of cameras with compact C-mount lenses. Inbuilt LEDs can usually be used if the distance to the front window is not too large. The same counts for the Chameleon L, that adjusts to lens and camera height with help of 4 different heights and the use of a lens tube if necessary. Typical cameras used with the Chameleon L are the Cognex Insight 5000 or the Sick Inspector. autoVimation now also offers a version made of surgical stainless steel for increases hygiene and corrosion resistance.
