POSTED 03/03/2016

Xenon-Topaz lensesSchneider-Kreuznach announces the availability of new Xenon-Topaz lenses. These low-weight compact lenses are fitted with a C-mount and are suitable for modern 1.1” CCD and CMOS sensors with 12 megapixels and a pixel size of up to 3.0 μm. The image circle has a 17.6 mm diameter.

Offering optimized imaging performance for distances from 1 m to infinity, Xenon-Topaz lenses ideal for applications in the areas of traffic monitoring, surveillance systems, as well as robot and machine vision. Thanks to robust mechanics, the iris and focus are not sensitive to vibrations, which enables a high and even imaging performance across the entire sensor, even in unfavorable conditions.

Xenon-Topaz lenses are available in F2.0/30mm, F2.0/38mm and F2.0/50mm versions.
