Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Resolve Optics Ltd. has received its single largest order to date for nonbrowning zoom lenses from nuclear inspection specialist Visatec GmbH of Sulzburg, Germany.

Visatec plans to use the lenses in its high-radiation-resistant pan-tilt-zoom tube cameras for a project in Chernobyl, Ukraine. The cameras, with integrated LED lighting, are designed for visual inspection in nuclear areas, in applications including the inspection of fuel elements, pressure vessels and nuclear cores, as well as the inspection of loading and offloading nuclear materials.

All optical elements in Resolve's radiation-tolerant lens designs are made using cerium oxide-doped glass or synthetic silica, allowing them to withstand radiation doses up to 1 billion rads and temperatures up to 55 °C without discoloration or performance degradation. They also provide high image resolution and minimum geometric distortion from 400 to 750 nm.

Resolve Optics is a designer of custom optics and OEM special lenses for small and large high-technology businesses.

Visatek is a developer of visual inspection systems, manipulators and remote-controlled vehicles for nuclear plants, power plants, sewer systems, wells, and the oil and gas sectors.
