Lenses integrate f/6 design for high-peformance light collection

JUNE 3, 2009--TECHSPEC 5-Mpixel telecentric lenses are specifically designed with the small pixels that are needed for use with 5-Mpixel sensors.

JUNE 3, 2009--TECHSPEC 5-Mpixel telecentric lenses are specifically designed with the small pixels that are needed for use with 5-Mpixel sensors. The lenses provide up to 2/3-in. sensor coverage and integrate high-performing light-collecting f/6 designs. They offer high contrast at 72 lp/mm across the full sensor field. Appropriate for integration into factory assembly lines, the lens features a locking iris and focus to prevent unintentional lens adjustments in high-vibration environments. Each lens uses an image-side telecentric design that eliminates illumination roll-off, which can be prevalent in systems using larger sensors. They are available in 1.7X, 0.9X, 0.5X, and 0.28X magnifications. A variety of camera mounts are available. An optional mounting clamp, available for each size lens, is recommended to secure the lens to benchtop setups.

PRESS RELEASE

Edmund Optics TECHSPEC High Resolution 5 Megapixel Telecentric Lenses Have Lowest F/#'s in the Industry

May 12, 2009, Barrington, NJ. - Edmund Optics (EO), the premier provider of optical and imaging components, introduces their TECHSPEC High Resolution 5 Megapixel Telecentric Lenses.

Designed to maximize 5 Megapixel sensors
The TECHSPEC High Resolution 5 Megapixel Telecentric Lenses were specifically designed with the small pixels that are ideal for use with 5 Megapixel sensors. These highly telecentric lenses produce unrivaled levels of contrast, yielding maximum image quality with the highest degree of measurement accuracy. The lenses provide up to 2/3 inch sensor coverage and integrate superior light collecting F/6 designs. They offer high contrast at 72 lp/mm across the full sensor field.

Image side telecentric design eliminates illumination roll off
EO's TECHSPEC High Resolution 5 Megapixel Telecentric Lenses are designed with an F/# as fast as F/6 -- the lowest F#'s in the industry -- to achieve the superior light collection required to work with the latest high resolution scanners on the market for sophisticated gauging and inspection solutions. Ideal for integration into factory assembly lines, the lens features a locking iris and focus, which prevents unintentional lens adjustments in high vibration environments. Each lens uses an image side telecentric design that eliminates illumination roll off, which can be especially prevalent in systems using larger sensors.

Optional mounting clamp secures lens to benchtop
TECHSPEC High Resolution 5 Megapixel Telecentric Lenses are available in 1.7X, 0.9X, 0.5X and 0.28X magnifications. A variety of camera mounts are available. An optional mounting clamp, available for each size lens, is highly recommended to secure the lens to benchtop setups. TECHSPEC High Resolution 5 Megapixel Telecentric Lenses are in stock and available for immediate delivery.
