High resolution, measurement accuracy and an optimal image quality
The lens focuses the light scattered by the test object and sends it to the camera sensor, which evaluates the image information and reproduces it as a recognizable image.
Image processing systems with a fixed integrated lens are equipped with autofocus and thus have a defined field of view at a certain distance from the test object. In contrast, systems with interchangeable lenses can be individually assembled depending on the application, always depending on the right combination of lens and intermediate ring, which are connected with either a C-mount or a CS-mount.
Range of vision lenses for industrial applications
As with lighting, there is a very wide range of types and models of lenses from various recognized manufacturers, including Edmund Optics, Tamron, Fujifilm (Fujinon), RICOH IMAGING or Opto Engineering, which offer high-quality lenses for every possible imaging application, from standard to special solutions.
When selecting a lens, particular attention must be paid to the resolution and pixel size of the camera used. But also the distance to the test object, the field of view as well as the depth of field or the properties of the object to be inspected are decisive.
