Computar® Optics Launches a Compact 45MP, 1.4" C-Mount Lens Series The MPT Lens Series is engineered to optimize the capabilities of the latest industrial CMOS sensors.

POSTED 01/05/2021

Cary, NC – Computar, the leading Japanese lens manufacturer in surveillance and machine vision, operated by the CBC Group, has released 1.4" MPT Series. The MPT Machine Vision Lens Series is engineered for the latest industrial imaging sensors (IMX492, IMX530, IMX540*). *Product of SONY Semiconductor Solutions Group.

MPT Series Features:

Dedicated design for latest high resolution 1.4" ~1.2" sensor.  The MPT Series was engineered with a 1.4" ~1.2" image format and the current 1.1" and 1" formats. It is compatible with 2.3um or 2.74um small pixel sizes and delivers superior performance, including optimum resolution, low distortion, and anti-shading.

The floating design delivers high performance at any working distance.  MPT Series retains superior performance at any working distance ideal for today's latest, diverse Machine Vision applications. The super high-resolution imaging sensor also makes it ideal for many vertical markets, including industrial drones, sports analytics, and wide-area surveillance.

High-level aberration correction and centering/alignment technology deliver an extraordinary performance from the image center to the corner with very tiny pixels.   By positioning the high refractive index glass and low partial dispersion glass at crucial locations, the field curvature and astigmatism are comprehensively corrected. This correction expands the possibility of imaging analyses with multi-ROI (Region of Interest) function.

The C-Mount format lens is optimized for large 1.4" imaging sensors.  What makes the MPT Series different is that it uses the most common "C-Mount" lens design for the industrial market, making it is possible to use a high-resolution imaging sensor without using a large format lens. This design provides high versatility while downsizing the overall equipment size.

Beginning Q1 2021, the first of the MPT Series will be available, with varying focal lengths to follow. For more information, go to
