High-end electronic inspection applications often call for very high magnifications to be able to achieve maximum resolution in the object space. Not only does the Diamond series meet these requirements, but the excellent mechanics ensure optical performance in high vibration applications.
12k and 16k line scan lenses for high magnification applications
The Xenon-Diamond series is made for high end line scan applications. It offers a sensor resolution of 5 µm over the whole image circle diameter making it suitable for 12k (62.5 mm line length) but also for 16k (82 mm line length) line scan cameras and is targeted at higher magnification applications ranging from -2.6x to -5.2x.
It comes either with V70 or V90 mount which can adapt cameras with M58, M72, M90 and M95 mounts.
Reasons to choose the Xenon-Diamond
The V70 and V90 mounts have been adapted to work with M72 and M95 respectively, and give you the option to mount the lens on M58, M72, M90, and M95 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.
We recommend using the M95 for 82 mm large line scan systems and the M72 for 62.5 mm line scan systems.
All Xenon-Diamond 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 decided to work with V-mounts. You can easily rotate your lens to the best position and fix it with the fixing screws.
Offering a coating from 400 nm to 1000 nm Schneider stays true to their commitment to offer lenses which are suitable for almost all industrial lighting conditions.
The MTF (contrast) over the whole image circle is very homogenous, there is virtually no distortion. The word "vignetting" is unheard of with the Diamond lenses.
