With its new Dimension lenses, Zeiss is targeting sophisticated machine vision applications that use cameras fitted with a C mount adapter. When used in combination with SVS-Vistek EXO cameras, these lenses are able to unleash their full capabilities.
The new Zeiss range of lenses comprises six models with focal lengths from 8 to 50 mm, all of which have been engineered to meet the demanding requirements of industrial applications. Features such as a robust metal body and mounting screws to secure the aperture and focus settings ensure high resistance to shock, vibration and temperature, thus meeting the highest possible demands in mechanical quality. As for its optical characteristics, the new Dimension series achieves low distortion, minimal color deviations and vignetting, producing extremely crisp and high-contrast images even at maximum aperture in combination with suitable cameras. The new lenses have been specifically designed for use with sensors up to 4/3” and are fitted with a C mount adapter.
Like the Dimension lenses, SVS-Vistek’s EXO cameras are the ideal choice for use in harsh environments: Among other things, these industrial cameras boast an extended temperature range and robust mechanics. With a wide range of state-of-the-art CCD and CMOS sensors with resolutions of 2.3 to 20 megapixels, high flexibility in terms of the available interfaces (GigE Vision, Camera Link, USB3-Vision) and diverse features important in daily use, this camera series can be used for many different applications. As the EXO series also includes models with sensor sizes of up to 4/3” and C mount lens adapters, the combination of these cameras with the new Zeiss Dimension lenses offers extremely efficient solutions for precise high-end machine vision applications in many different industries.
