IDS is now offering more than 20 new C-mount lenses. Thanks to lens resolutions of 5, 8, and 10 MP as well as different focal lengths and optical classes, they can be used in numerous application scenarios. With these features, they fit seamlessly into the “It’s so easy!” product philosophy of the company.
“When implementing image processing applications, it is not only important to choose the right camera, the lens also has a decisive influence on the image quality,” explains Jürgen Hejna, Product Manager at IDS. Focal length, resolution and aperture, for example, must be taken into account. The lenses are suitable for different sensor sizes (from 1⁄2 to 1.1-in.) and allow focal lengths of 4 to 75mm depending on the model. The aperture and focus can be fixed mechanically if required. This ensures that brightness and image quality remain constant even if the lens is exposed to vibrations, for example. An additional set of screws is included in each delivery.
The new lenses not only meet high demands on optical quality, but are also more than competitive in terms of price. “For our customers, this means that they receive all components from camera to lens from a single supplier – and in the usual high IDS quality,” says Hejna. The lenses can both be obtained from the company’s webstore where a configurator helps select the right model or via the local IDS sales representative.
