Lenses (for Machine Vision)

CA-L series

Variable-magnification Telecentric Macro Lens Supporting 4/3" Image Sensors

CA-LMHE Series

Resolution comparison

120 lines are acquired both for the center and periphery resolutions, which means that these lenses bring out the full capabilities of 4/3", 21 megapixel cameras. These are the optimal lenses to use when applying telecentric lenses to line scan cameras as well.

21 megapixel camera + CA-LMHE

Even the extremely detailed parts can be imaged with high contrast.

21 megapixel camera + CA-LHE + close-up ring

Even though the magnification is roughly the same, the resolution is insufficient due to the effect of the close-up ring, which means that contrast cannot be obtained.

*1 Depending on factors such as the installation orientation and the vibrations of the environment, consider reinforcing the installation such as by implementing countermeasures to hold the lens in place. For information on the locations to hold the lens in place, see the installation examples.
The above values were calculated according to optical design values. Actual values for individual lenses will differ according to precision of assembly.
*2 WD indicates the distance from the tip of the lens to the workpiece. Changing the magnification changes this distance.
*3 The smallest resolvable feature able to be detected under 550 nm wavelength light.
*4 The depth-of-field is a theoretical value calculated with an F-stop of 16 and a circle of least confusion of 40 µm 1.57 Mil. This varies
depending on the F-stop.
*5 The depth-of-field is a theoretical value calculated with an F-stop of 16 and a circle of least confusion of 40 µm 1.57 Mil. This varies depending on the F-stop.
