BILATERAL TELECENTRIC LENS
Feb 2001Schneider Optics Inc.Request Info
Xenoplan bilateral telecentric lenses for use in noncontact optical metrology have been released by Schneider Optics Inc. The company says these lenses create a parallel beam path that makes the system highly insensitive to object size and location so that even complicated shapes and structures can be identified, and they provide distortion-free imaging over the entire object field, eliminating the need for software correction of results. Designed to work with standard 2/3-in. C-mount cameras, each lens has manually adjustable iris and focus controls with front threads to accept filters. The mounting collar and fine-focus control can be rotated to any position to adjust to unusual or cramped system configurations.
