TECHSPEC® Rugged Blue Series M12 µ-Video Lenses optimized for Machine Vision

Ruggedized to reduce pixel shift and maintain optical pointing stability

3/1/2018, Mainz, Germany   —

Edmund Optics® (EO), the premier provider of optical components, introduces new TECHSPEC® Rugged Blue Series M12 µ-Video™ Lenses. These versatile lenses feature high resolution designs and are optimized for machine vision working distances. They are ideal for calibrated imaging applications such as measurement and gauging, 3D stereo vision, robotics and sensing, autonomous vehicles, and object tracking.

Designed for stability after shock and vibration

TECHSPEC® Rugged Blue Series M12 µ-Video™ Lenses are Stability Ruggedized, which protects the lens from damage. Stability Ruggedized lenses also reduce pixel shift and maintain optical pointing stability after shock and vibration, which can be common in machine vision applications. Each of the M12 lenses is composed of several precision glass optics that are glued together in place, inside of a compact aluminum housing. By securing the glass optics with glue, any small movements are prevented, therefore avoiding any pixel shift within the system. Further, object-to-image mapping is maintained, even after a heavy shock or vibration. This means that the center of the object will map onto the center pixel and will always continue to map to that same center pixel.

f/# options ranging from f/2,5 to f/8

TECHSPEC® Rugged Blue Series M12 µ-Video™ Lenses use an M12 x 0,5, S-Mount and are available in aperture options ranging from f/2,5 to f/8 and focal lengths from 3 mm to 25 mm. The RoHS compliant lenses feature a maximum camera sensor format of 1/3 inch and a working distance of either 100-400 mm or 150-400 mm. TECHSPEC® Rugged Blue Series M12 µ-Video™ Lenses are in-stock and available for immediate delivery.
