Upgrade your Bartech Handset for Focus and Iris control.


For all existing BarTech users that need more control, add a second channel on your BarTech Handset.


Making it Possible ... PLC Electronic Solutions in conjunction with BarTech Engineering have developed the solution to quickly and inexpensively upgrade your existing BarTech BFD Handset controller to a 2-channel Focus and Iris controller unit without having to buy a different handset!


  • BarTech BFD Handset with serial number T1.0430 and newer.
  • fSTOP Wireless BarTech Digital Receiver with software version 2.5 and newer.

The PLC Electronic Solutions BarTech Iris Slider upgrade allows any user to convert an existing BarTech BDF Handset into a 2-channel controller in less than 10 minutes by following simple step-by-step instructions with commonly available hand tools.  The system adds very little weight or bulk to your existing controller.  The slider mechanism is completely sealed and impervious to dust or moisture.  You will find the magnetically based feedback to be positive, smooth and accurate. The system is fully backward compatible with the BarTech Analog Receiver you may already own for focus and the fSTOP Wireless BarTech Digital Receiver (sofware version 2.5 or higher) for Focus or Iris.


NEW High Resolution 16bit Control for increased accuracy and smoother lens operation 

Our new high resolution control mode is on par with industry standard systems that cost over $30,000.

Now you can also benefit from the increased resolution that is 16 times more accurate in positioning than 

existing 12 bit resolution systems. 12 bits = 4096 steps / 16 bits = 65535 steps



  • 16 bit High Resolution Control (65,535 positions) possible with Bartech Digital Receiver for Focus and Iris.
  • Quick 10-minute installation on existing BarTech BFD Handsets (s/n: T1.0430 and newer) with simple hand tools.

Transforms the BFD
Written by Daniel Stilling on 13th Feb 2013

The Iris Slider definitely is a must have for Bartech owners. It not only transforms your system into a capable 2 channel system, it also increases the resolution to 16bit, making it virtually indistinguishable in terms of performance, to the Preston, Scorpio and others. It was very easy to install and works like a charm!

Can't wait!
