New IDS lenses with 2, 5, 8 and 10 MP: Excellent price-performance ratio

Feb. 10, 2021

Thanks to lens resolutions of 2, 5, 8 and 10 MP as well as different focal lengths and optical classes, the IDS lenses can be used in numerous application scenarios. In addition, they are characterized by a very good price-performance ratio. With these features they fit seamlessly into the "It's so easy!" product philosophy of the company.

"When implementing image processing applications, it is not only important to choose the right camera, the lens also has a decisive influence on the image quality," explains Jürgen Hejna, Product Manager at IDS. Focal length, resolution and aperture, for example, must be taken into account. The lenses are suitable for different sensor sizes (from ½ inch to 1.1 inch) and allow focal lengths of 4 mm to 100 mm depending on the model. The aperture and focus can be fixed mechanically. This ensures that brightness and image quality remain constant even if the lens is exposed to vibrations, for example. With the lens finder on the IDS website, customers can discover suitable lenses with just a few clicks. They simply need to enter at least two values of their application, such as desired focal length and working distance, and will receive the company's recommendations.

The new lenses not only meet high demands on optical quality, but are also more than competitive in terms of price. Customers looking for a particularly affordable combination of camera and lens for volume projects should consider the uEye XLE camera family.
