New Xenon-Jade Lens Series For 1.2" Sensors


Bad Kreuznach, Germany -  Schneider-Kreuznach introduces the new, robust Xenon-Jade lens family for 1.2" sensors. The five lenses with a speed of 2.8 and focal lengths of 12/16/25/35/50 mm are suitable for pixel sizes down to 2.4μm and are therefore well suited for use in combination with Sony's IMX253, 420/425 and 530/540 sensors. The lenses already offer particularly good imaging performance at open aperture - with either visible or IR illumination.

Due to the precise and stable mechanics, the image position is maintained
even in harsh industrial environments with high shock and vibration. This
makes the Xenon-Jade lenses particularly suitable for demanding inspection
and measurement tasks in 3D / 2D metrology and robotic vision. Other
areas of application include surface inspection, quality control and
classification from classic machine vision and automated optical inspection
