LENSES

The Xenon-Opal 2.8/12 lens is a robust C-mount lens designed for 1.1” sensors down to 3 μm pixel size for a variety of industrial applications such as in factory automation systems, inspection systems, and 3D measurements. The robust mechanics provide a highly stable image in harsh environments, such as being mounted on the arm of a robot system.

Schneider Optics presents the Xenon-Topaz lenses suitable for modern 1.1” CCD and CMOS sensors with 12 megapixels and a pixel size up to 3.0 μm. These lenses feature a robust mechanical design with lockable iris with a focus that is resistant to vibrations and guarantees an extremely high and uniform image quality over the entire sensor even under harsh conditions.

Schneider Optics designs and manufactures C-Mount lenses for integration into megapixel cameras that are used in industrial inspection, robotics, machine vision, postal sorting, document scanning, and medical applications.

These Xenon-Ruby C-mount lenses specifically been designed for 1/1.8” sensor up to 10 megapixel resolution with up to a 16 mm focal length. They are ideal for applications involving machine vision, 2D/3D measurement, traffic control, and surveillance and security systems. The broadband transmission covers the range from 400 to 1000 nm.

Schneider Optics' Xenon-Emerald series is designed for large format cameras with up to 29 MP sensors. These compact, low-distortion lenses feature an image diameter of 43.2 mm and are lockable in distance and aperture.

Schneider Optics offers a series of 2/3” lenses featuring an extremely high relative aperture of 0.95, making them ideal for low light applications. They are corrected and coated for the visible range from 400 to 700 nm.

The Xenon-Sapphire series of high-resolution, high-speed lenses are designed for 16k pixel line scan sensors, with several models optimized for a certain magnification range. These lenses feature pixel size of 3.5 µm, and are compact, robust, and lockable in distance and apertures.

Schneider Optics offers the Xenon-Zirconia series of lenses for a variety of line scan applications. These lenses are optimized for pixel size 5 μm for use with 12k (62.5 mm) line scan sensors but can also be used with 16k (82 mm) lines.

The Xenon-Diamond series comprises a family of line scan lenses specifically designed for large magnifications such as -2.6x or -3.5x. Optimized for the highest resolution and image quality, these compact and robust cameras are ideal for FPD inspection, PCB/OLED inspections, web and surface inspections, line scan, and other quality control applications.

Line scan imaging is most commonly used for complex web and surface inspections and therefore, require a camera and lens with smaller pixel sizes and increased sensor resolution. Makro-Symmar, Micro-Symmar, Componon, and Apo-Componon lenses are designed for industrial machine vision applications and satisfy even the most stringent requirements of next generation 12k line scan applications.

Schneider Optics offers the Unifoc 58 and Unifoc 76 helical mounts used for focusing enlarging lenses that do not contain any internal focusing mechanism. They feature a total focus range (Z-axis travel) of 25.7 mm and differ only by their rear mount. The Unifoc 58 has a “male” T2 thread (M42 x 0.75). The Unifoc 76 has a “male” M58 x 0.75 thread.

Schneider Optics offers the Macro Varon and Macro Varon with a beamsplitter for PCB/ FPD/ OLED/ LED inspection, flat glass inspection, quality control, wafer inspection, line scan, and other web and surface inspection applications. They are ideally suited for 12k line scan with pixel sizes from 3.5 μm up to 5 μm.

Schneider Optics offers a series of bilateral telecentric lenses for matrix and line scan cameras in optical metrology applications. These lenses feature absolute distortion in the image plane to only a few micrometers, and can be focused on the image side in a range of +/- 3 mm.

FILTERS

Schneider Optics offers a series of UV-IR-cut filters designed to transmit VIS light while blocking UV and IR light. With their choice wavelength ranges and ultra-low reflection coatings, they are ideally used to protect sensors, lenses, or complete measurement systems.

Schneider Optics offers a series of magnetron sputtered industrial bandpass filters with impressed steep slopes and high transmission at stable cut-on and cut-off wavelengths. They are ideal for use in metrology, 3D-measurement, food and beverage inspection, ophthalmology, and microscopy applications.

Schneider Optics offers a series of magnetron sputtered industrial narrow bandpass filters with steep slopes for sophisticated applications that require a sharp transition between high transmission and deep blocking at stable cut-on and cut-off wavelengths.

Schneider Optics offers a series of shortpass filters 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.

Schneider Optics offers a series of longpass filters 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.

The Schneider Optics series of 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.

Schneider Optics offers red and NIR color filters 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.

Schneider Optics offers circular polarizer filters as 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.

  • Discover The New Bandpass Filter BP 850-80 HT From Schneider-Kreuznach

    Schneider-Kreuznach is pleased to present the new BP 850-80 HT infrared filter as an addition to its range of bandpass filters. This filter has been specially developed for applications with powerful infrared high-power LED’s (850nm), which are becoming increasingly popular. Cameras equipped with these LED’s can deliver night-time images up to 20-30 meters. The Schneider-Kreuznach infrared filter in combination with an 850nm LED light source produces strong and shadow-free infrared illumination that is visible to many sensors but invisible to the human eye. Therefore, it is perfectly suitable for the use in surveillance systems and industrial applications.

  • 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.
