Lensation GmbH's TC5M series telecentric lenses are for tasks that require high precision. Designed for use in 2/3-in. CCD sensors with 5-megapixel resolution, they are available in various models for working distances of 110, 130 and 150 mm. They are suited for inspection and measurement tasks with varying distances to the camera, where conventional lenses could provide different results, depending upon the distance. The lenses provide low distortion and high resolution, rendering them suitable for use in metrology applications. Telecentric lenses enable users to improve measuring accuracy. On the object side and/or on the image side, they create an optical path parallel to the optical axis. Object-space telecentric lenses can detect objects without any perspective distortion.
