New wide-aperture SWIRON lenses made by SCHNEIDER KREUZNACH


(PresseBox) (Bad Kreuznach, ) Schneider-Kreuznach presents two new high speed SWIRON lenses with a c-mount and M42x1 mount at VISION 2012. A specially developed coating ensures excellent transmission in the wavelength range from 900 to 1700 nm. With an image circle diameter of up to 25 mm, the lenses can resolve pixels of down to 10 µm in size without a loss of contrast. The new SWIRON lenses are available with a focal length of 1.2/50 mm as well as 1.4/100 mm.
