Introducing Computar's 520-1300mm SWIR Reflex Zoom Lens

POSTED 03/26/2024

March 15, 2024, Mebane, NC— Computar®, the leading Japanese lens manufacturer in machine vision and surveillance operated by the CBC Group, Computar announced the release of the E3Z5247P-MPSW, a 1.3MP, 1520 - 1300mm ViSWIR Reflex Zoom lens for super-telephoto applications.

The C-mount E3Z5247P-MPSW is compact, lightweight, and engineered for the latest 1/1.8" visible + SWIR imaging sensors (IMX990/IMX99145).

The reflex zoom lens is designed for a working distance of 25m to infinity. Its distinctive photosensitive design allows for optimal performance between 400 and 1700nm and has an adjustable back-focus mechanism.

According to Terry Sekiya, Senior Vice President of Imaging and Information Technology at CBC AMERICA, "The lens uses a longer wavelength, lowering the scattering coefficient, which means the SWIR imaging is optimized and objects can be seen further away."

The ViSWIR reflex zoom has been added to Computar's award-winning ViSWIR series, a hyper / multi-spectral lens series created for the latest visible + SWIR imaging sensors. Computar offers an extensive selection of models suitable for various sensor types and almost any application. For more information, go to computar.com/viswir.
