Edmund Optics®, leading manufacturer and distributor of precision optics and imaging products, will be exhibiting at Automate in Booth 1225. Our staff of EO experts will be on site to assist you and provide product demonstrations. The demos and products that will be featured at the show are shown below.
Improving Imaging Performance with Telecentric Lenses
Visit our booth to see how EO’s 0.045X, 2/3" TitanTL™ Telecentric Lens eliminates parallax and how telecentric lenses with large fields of view have very large depths of field. We will demonstrate why these lenses provide a multitude of advantages for any gauging and optical metrology system.
In this demo, an audience of classic characters from the Marvel Universe will look down into an arena showing off the capabilities of our versatile TECHSPEC® Cx Series Fixed Focal Length Lenses and our ruggedized TECHSPEC® Cr Series Fixed Focal Length Lenses. Come check out our booth to see this unique and especially super demo!
TECHSPEC® Cr Series Fixed Focal Length Lenses
Our new line of TECHSPEC® Cr Series Fixed Focal Length Lenses are Stability Ruggedized, allowing them to maintain optical pointing in demanding environments involving shocks, vibrations, and temperature changes. The lenses feature streamlined mechanics with a simplified focus, fixed aperture, and stainless steel locking C-Mount clamp for protection. All individual lens elements are also glued in place to prevent decenter even after heavy shock and vibration, eliminating object shift on the image and guaranteeing that the object-image mapping remains constant. A point on the object will always map to the same point on your image even in harsh environments with heavy vibrations. TECHSPEC® Cr Series Fixed Focal Length Lenses are compact ruggedized (Cr) versions of our C Series Lenses and are ideal for calibrated imaging systems such as robotics and sensing, 3D stereo vision, measurement and gauging, object tracking, and autonomous vehicles.
TECHSPEC® TitanTL™ Telecentric Lenses
Our TECHSPEC® TitanTL™ Telecentric Lenses are designed for machine vision and metrology applications that require large fields of view. These lenses achieve <0.1° telecentricity and feature large maximum sensor formats, a variety of magnification and working distance options, and a rear filter holder on the back of the lenses allowing for easy filter integration. The integrated mounting flange on our 118mm, 182mm, and 242mm FOV versions conveniently allows for securing each lens and provides an easy-to-locate reference plane without requiring an additional mount. TECHSPEC® TitanTL™ Telecentric Lenses contain an adjustable multi-leaf iris, a 3 set screw lens mount for simple rotational alignment, and shims that provide adjustment for variation in camera sensor location. These lenses are ideal for a wide variety of applications including automotive and electronic inspection, gauging, and metrology.
TECHSPEC® Cx Series Fixed Focal Length Lenses
Our TECHSPEC® Cx Series Fixed Focal Length Lenses are modular 3-piece assemblies designed with simplicity and versatility to integrate easily into a wide range of applications. They accommodate interchangeable accessories including internal filter holders, precision fixed apertures, and liquid lenses directly into the barrel. These lenses also feature a simplified focus mechanism consisting of easy to use lock nuts and recessed set screws to lock the focus position into place. TECHSPEC® Cx Series Fixed Focal Length Lenses are compact flexible (Cx) versions of our C Series Lenses and are ideal for applications including machine vision, factory automation, and research and development.
TECHSPEC® UC Series Fixed Focal Length Lenses
Our TECHSPEC® UC Series Fixed Focal Length Lenses are ultra-compact (UC) versions of our C Series Lenses and are designed to optimize performance, size, and cost. These lenses feature high levels of resolution (>200 lp/mm) across the image sensor, are designed for pixels that are ≤2.2μm, and are compatible with all standard C-Mount cameras. They are manufactured for use at typical machine vision working distances and contain iris and focus adjustments. While the TECHSPEC® UC Series lenses are optimized for 1/2.5" sensors, many focal lengths will also work on sensors up to 1/1.8". They are an outstanding option for both short and long working distance applications, making them ideal for a broad range of applications including factory automation, inspection, and biomedical devices.
