Ruggedised versions of the MPW2 series of C-mount 5 Mpixel ultra-low distortion machine vision lenses have been introduced by Computar. The new MPW2-R Series of lenses is designed specifically to withstand strong shocks, vibrations and huge variations in temperatures in demanding factory automation environments.
The new Dimension range of lenses from Zeiss has been designed for precise high-end applications, where distortion, vignetting and colouring issues must be minimised. Developed specifically for C-mount cameras, these new lenses provide high contrast, razor-sharp images, even at maximum aperture. They are virtually distortion-free across the entire area of sensors up to 4/3” and can resolve pixel sizes down to 2 μm.
Bergader Privatkäserei, established in 1902, relies on state-of-the-art technology as well as traditional craftsmanship in the manufacture of its cheese specialities. A hyperspectral imaging system is being used for the first time for the packaging of the blue cheese ‘Bergader Edelpilz’.
The new FC series of 1.1" C-Mount lenses from Kowa has been designed for use with 12 megapixel sensors with an image circle up to 17.6 mm. They are optimised to prevent unwanted shading on the new Sony IMX253 and IMX304 CMOS sensors by matching with the micro lenses on the sensors’ 3.45 µm pixels.
