Telecentric Lens

September 1, 2009

The Techspec large-format telecentric lens can accommodate image sensors measuring as large as 28.7 millimeters diagonal. This makes them compatible with large-format area sensors such as the 1.2-inch Kodak 4MP and 4K-pixel line scan sensors. Even with 5-micrometer sensors, contrast is greater than 20% across the whole field of view, with telecentricity and distortion of less than 0.1%. The lens is available with a variety of mounting formats, including C-mount, T-mount and F-mount for compatibility with many large-sensor cameras. An optional mounting clamp is available for use in benchtop setups. Lens aperture is adjustable from F/6 to F/22 and a locking iris prevents changes in adjustment in high-vibration environments.
