Schneider-Kreuznach SAPPHIRE

12k and 16k line scan lens series

The SAPPHIRE series is made for high-end line scan applications. It offers a sensor resolution of 3.5 µm in the centre 57.3 mm image circle for 16k line scan cameras and on the outside (up to 82 mm image circle) it can resolve a pixel pitch of approximately 5 µm. This makes the lens series suitable for 12k (62.5 mm sensor line length), and 16k (57.3 mm and 82 mm sensor line length).



Reasons to use the SAPPHIRE lenses

Versatile lens series

The series offers many different magnifications, ranging from -0.07x to -2.0x which means if your sample changes, you do not necessarily have to look for another lens.

Adaptable to many different cameras

The V70 mount has been adapted to work with M72 and gives you the option to mount the lens on M58, M90, M95 and, of course, M72 threads. This enables you to work with the vast majority of high resolution line scan cameras on the market. As it offers many different extension tubes as well, it is very likely that it can be adapted to work with your camera.

The best performance, made even better

All SAPPHIRE lenses are measured and checked at Schneider-Kreuznach at almost every single step in its production. The manufacturer marks the best alignment to the sensor line with a red dot and calls it "red dot for best azimuth" in the datasheets. This spot marks the best performance and contrast for your specific lens, making each lens unique. This is also the reason why Schneider-Kreuznach decided to work with V-mounts. You can easily rotate your lens to the best position and fix it with the fixing screws.

Broadband coating

Offering a coating from 400 nm to 1000 nm Schneider-Kreuznach stays true to their commitment to offer lenses which are suitable for almost all industrial lighting conditions.

Outstanding optical performance

The MTF (contrast) over the whole image circle is very homogenous, there is virtually no distortion. The word "vignetting" is unheard of with the SAPPHIRE.

Renaming of Schneider-Kreuznach lenses

In order to make information more accessible, Schneider-Kreuznach has decided to restructure the lens range and rename the lenses accordingly. Following existing names, all product families will be named after gemstones.

Your benefit

  • You will be able to find a lens with specific features faster.
  • The naming is consistent across all documents, data and on the lens.
  • All features are transparent through the "descriptive name”. Our example below shows the current Xenoplan-M 2.0/28.
