The new Techspec Rugged Blue Series M12 µ-video lenses from Edmund Optics are optimised for machine vision applications including autonomous driving as well as measurement and gauging, robotics and sensing, 3D stereo vision and object tracking.
Each of the M12 lenses is composed of several precision glass optics that are glued together in place, inside a compact aluminium housing. Edmund Optics says that securing the glass optics with glue prevents any small movements, therefore avoiding pixel shift and maintaining object-to-image mapping even after a heavy shock or vibration. This should mean that the centre of the object will map on to the centre pixel and will always continue to map to that same centre pixel.
The lenses use an M12 x 0.5 S-mount and are available in aperture options ranging from f/2,5 to f/8 and focal lengths from 3-25mm.
The RoHS-compliant lenses feature a maximum camera sensor format of 1/3in and a working distance of either 100-400mm or 150-400mm. The lenses are in-stock and available for immediate delivery.
