Compact TFL-Mount Lenses For High-Resolution Cameras With 4/3” Sensors From Schneider-Kreuznach
The resolution of modern sensors is increasing with every generation. Pixels are getting smaller and while the sensor itself is getting bigger. It shows that the standard C-Mount is too small to provide a high image quality over the whole sensor size. While F-Mount bayonet is not stable enough and M42 does not allow compact lens designs. In contrast, the new standardized TFL-Mount with its M35x0.75 thread and 17.52 back flange distance (same as C-Mount) is ideal for large-format compact lenses.
Discover The 1 mm Optical Filters From Schneider-Kreuznach
Filters play an important part in an imaging system. They block unwanted wavelengths and troublesome surrounding light, while selected wavelength ranges are transmitted at a high percentage. As an optical element the filter must fulfill some requirements to ensure that it has no impact on the resolution of the complete system. The quarter wave wavefront distortion also ensures that the MTF is not affected. Our 1 mm thin filters with a high surface quality are developed to be placed between lens and sensor. Equipped with the Schneider-Kreuznach typical coating with high transmission and steep slopes, they are the ideal choice for challenging machine vision applications.

Schneider-Kreuznach Expands The Xenon-Topaz C-Mount Compact Lens Series With 6.5 mm Focal Length
The new 6.5 mm wide-angle lens with 17.6 mm image circle, for cameras with 1.1'' sensors, completes the Xenon-Topaz series from Schneider-Kreuznach. With a working distance from 0.3 m to infinity and a maximum angle of view of 114°, this lens fits for various applications where a huge field of view is needed from a near distance as common in security cameras for face recognition.
Schneider-Kreuznach Introduces The New Xenon-Opal 2.8/12 Lens
Modern applications require the highest image quality over the entire field. The new Xenon-Opal 2.8/12 compact C-mount lens from Schneider Kreuznach fulfills these demands, designed to operate with 12 MP cameras and 1.1" sensors.
Polarizer Filter Series Datasheet
Circular polarizer filters are a combination of a linear polarizer and a quarter wave retarder and are used in 3D, traffic, surveillance, inspection, stress testing, and LCD technology applications. These polarizers fulfill industrial requirements are recommended if optics as mirrors are within the optical path from the filter to the sensor. They are made of dichroic laminated polarizing polymers cemented between two slides of protective glass.
Red And NIR Color Filter Series Datasheet
Red and NIR color filters are designed with a maximum of 50 % transmittance and are used to increase the contrast of a monochrome image by isolating spectral regions and lighting colors. Ideal uses for these filters include traffic control, night vision, machine vision, line inspection, food and beverage inspection and other NIR imaging.
Neutral Density Filter Series Datasheet
The neutral density (ND) filters are designed to evenly reduce the transmittance of light over the entire VIS spectrum. By decreasing the brightness of an image without changing the depth of field (DoF), these filters are ideal suited for welding, measuring instrument, R&D and laser measurement applications.
Longpass Filter Series Datasheet
The longpass filters are impressed with steep slopes and high transmission at stable cut-on wavelengths. These filters are suited for high end machine vision systems in factory automation. They can also be used in metrology, 3D measurement, inspection, and automotive applications.
Shortpass Filter Series Datasheet
The shortpass filters are impressed with steep slopes and high transmission at stable cut-on wavelengths. Optimized for infinity, these filters are suited for applications with long working distances like in traffic or surveillance. They can also be used in metrology, 3D measurement, inspection, and automotive applications.
