A Leading Provider of Components and Turnkey Solutions for the Industrial Imaging Market




TC16M Series Telecentric Lenses have been specifically designed to fit 11, 16 and 29 MegaPixel cameras integrating 35 mm format (36 x 24 mm) image sensors.


This combination is the typical choice for extremely accurate measurement of large parts (i.e. engine parts, metal sheets, extruded parts, ...).


TC16M Lenses are also perfectly suitable for 4K and 2K pixel linescan cameras, and can be succesfully used to determine the diameter of cylindrical objects (shafts, turned metal parts, machine tools, ...)


Besides the standard F-mount any other mechanical interface can be easily supplied on request.


The TC16M Series offeres a perfect solution for TrueSense (Kodak) Image Sensor based cameras - particularly 11, 16 and 29 MegaPixel models.


(1)  Working Distance: distance between the front lens and the object. Set this distance within +/- 3% of the nominal value for maximum resolution and minimum distortion.

(2)  Working F-number: the real F-number of a lens when used as a macro. Lenses with smaller apertures can be supplied on request.

(3)  Maximum slope of chief rays inside the lens: when converted to millirad, it gives the maximum measurement error for any millimeter of object displacement. Typical (average production) values and maximum (guaranteed) values are listed.

(4)  Percent deviation of the real image compared to an ideal, undistorted image: typical (average production) values and maximum (guaranteed) values are listed.

(5)  At the borders of the field depth the image can be still used for measurement but, to get a very sharp image, only half of the nominal field depth should be considered.

(6)  Measured from the front end of the mechanics to the camera flange.
