System Series Vari-Focal Lenses
Aspherical Design, DC Auto Iris / Manual Iris


Honeywell’s full line of Vari-focal lenses are suitable for indoor and outdoor applications where scene and lighting requirements vary.

Today's CCTV systems demand lenses that are compact and provide the best optical performance while being easy to install and adjust. Honeywell's line of Vari-focal lenses offers the most compact size in the market while maintaining the widest maximum apertures for a given focal length range. Innovations such as the focus lock mechanism being separated from the focusing ring ensure accurate adjustment of the focus the first time. This reduces time spent in installation and setup of the lens.

Featuring world-class design—Honeywell's lenses bring together the highest quality aspherical glass optics, lightweight construction, and durability to ensure state-of-the-art optical correction, transmission and light-gathering ability. Varifocal length lenses allow the installer the flexibility of obtaining the exact field of view quickly and easily, eliminating lens substitutions or the need to continuously adjust the camera setup. This is especially convenient for future changes to the viewing environment. Our lenses allow superior wide aperture performance (F0.95) in low light to capture high-quality images up to 540 TVL, even in horizontal-field angles up to 110 degrees.

Honeywell Auto Iris lenses are 1/3" format and are compatible with the vast majority of today's CCD cameras. The camera controls the iris through an industry-standard 4-pin connector and cable. Our manual lenses allow the installer to set the depth of field for a specific application.
