Edmund Optics Introduces TECHSPEC machine vision lenses
Transmission out to 1000nm
TECHSPEC VIS-NIR Compact Fixed Focal Length Lenses provide transmission out to 1000nm, making them perfectly suited for factory automation, inspection or qualification applications that require NIR or VIS-NIR performance. These lenses have been designed with true factory automation in mind - their optical designs take into consideration the precise working distances and demanding requirements of factory automation and inspection. In order to perform in even the most restrictive lighting conditions, the lenses feature large maximum apertures and a BBAR coating.
Ruggedized lens housing for harsh manufacturing environments
TECHSPEC VIS-NIR Compact Fixed Focal Length Lenses include a convenient locking iris and focus adjustment with recessed set screws to prevent unintended lens adjustments. In order to withstand harsh manufacturing environments, the lenses feature a robust, ruggedized lens housing, while its compact size makes it ideal for space-restrictive applications. The lenses support up to 2/3 inch sensors. When plans call for IR imaging only, the company's #65-796 UV-VIS Cut Filter threads directly onto the M25.5 x 0.5 mm front filter thread of each lens.
Lenses represent a new standard in factory automation optics
Each of the TECHSPEC VIS-NIR Compact Fixed Focal Length Lenses is manufactured to a very high tolerance, which results in excellent imaging performance and low lens-to-lens variation. This consistent quality allows the user simple installation into multiple systems. TECHSPEC VIS-NIR Compact Fixed Focal Length Lenses are available in 16 mm, 25 mm and 35 mm sizes. These lenses combine excellent optical performance and unique industrial features in a small package size to represent a new standard in factory automation optics. TECHSPEC VIS-NIR Compact Fixed Focal Length Lenses are in-stock and available for immediate delivery for fast turnaround and excellent value
