Original Press Release:
Fast Fixed Focal Length Lenses Provide High Resolution Imaging
June 12, 2007, Barrington, NJ. - Edmund Optics (EO), the premier provider of optical components and tools, today announced the availability of two new fast, fixed focal length lenses. The new TECHSPEC(TM) lenses offer object-space resolution better than two line-pairs per millimeter and are available in popular focal lengths such as 8.5 and 12mm. These lenses are designed for high-speed, high-resolution imaging, making them ideal for on-line inspection applications.
The high-resolution fixed focal length lenses support sensors as large as 2/3-inch and provide an angular field of view greater than 40º. At the lens' minimum working distance of 200mm, this corresponds to a field 240 mm wide for the 8.5-mm focal length lens (#58-000) and 155 mm for the 12-mm focal length lens (#58-001). The short focal lengths of these macro lenses allow them to work in low-lighting applications, offering speeds as fast as f-1.3.
As with other TECHSPEC(TM) imaging lenses, the high-resolution fixed focal length lenses offer a robust set of mechanics to complement the high quality optics. Features include a low-profile housing, variable focus and iris adjustments with detents, and a standard C-mount interface for convenient camera coupling. Focus and iris adjustments can be locked using thumb-screws, or replaced with setscrews to give a more permanent lock. Industry standard filters can be easily attached to these lenses via the M25.5 x 0.5-mm filter thread located on the front of the lens.
Price and Availability
The high-resolution macro lenses are available from stock in 8.5-mm focal length (#58-000) or 12-mm focal length (#58-001) versions retail at $230 each, but volume opportunities are welcomed. Please contact email@example.com for high quantity requirements.
