Lenses for large Sensors

Visual process and quality control is one of the most important application areas in modern industrial optics. With the growing use of large-format, increasingly high-resolution image sensors, conventional lenses are now reaching their optical limits. Schneider-Kreuznach provides excellent lenses especially for cameras with large sensors of the latest and coming generations.

Due to their universal, application-independent design and a construction which is both optically and mechanically advanced designs, these lenses make it possible to take advantage of modern sensor technology to the fullest performance. With wide-ranging accessories such as extension tubes, helical mounts and adapters, these lenses are used in classic machine vision, LCD, PCB and web inspection, in medical applications, food processing as well as 2D and 3D measuring technology.

During development, regardless of the area of application, maximum priority was given to outstanding imaging performance, low longitudinal and lateral chromatic aberration, as well as extremely low distortion, i.e. two criteria which are of great importance for the new linear and area sensors and the associated application and tasks. The optical quality is supported by a mechanical construction which has been geared specially to optical requirements. New, high-precision manufacturing methods allow the completion of the tightest optical and mechanical tolerances.

For our customers, the benefits of this design are obvious: Schneider-Kreuznach lenses for large sensors are distinguished by their great Opto-Mechanical robustness and durability, even in extreme and constantly changing operating conditions, as well as by their very low maintenance requirements. This is reflected in the reproducibility of error detection and in more accurate and more stable measurement results. The lenses thus satisfy all the conditions required to sustain production processes reliably all round.
