BAD KREUZNACH, 3 November 2015 The new Schneider-Kreuznach Xenon-Topaz lenses are now available to buy. These low-weight compact lenses are fitted with a C-mount and are suitable for modern 1.1” CCD and CMOS sensors with 12 megapixels and a pixel size of up to 3.0 µm. The image circle has a 17.6 mm diameter. The optimized imaging performance for distances from 1 m to infinity makes these lenses ideal for applications in the areas of traffic monitoring, surveillance systems as well as robot and machine vision. Thanks to their robust mechanics, the iris and focus are not sensitive to vibrations. This enables a high and even imaging performance across the entire sensor, even in unfavorable conditions. Xenon-Topaz lenses are available in F2.0/30mm, F2.0/38mm and F2.0/50mm versions. Industrial Optics business area: Jos.
