Edmund Optics® Honored by Vision Systems Design 2018 Innovators Awards Program

TECHSPEC® Cr Series Fixed Focal Length Lenses Recognized with Silver Award

4/25/2018, Barrington, NJ USA   —

Edmund Optics® (EO), the premier provider of optical components, is proud to announce that their TECHSPEC® Cr Series Fixed Focal Length Lenses won a Silver-Level 2018 VSD Innovators Award in the lighting, lenses and optics category. Honorees of the Vision Systems Design Innovators Awards have made groundbreaking contributions to the vision and imaging processing industry and are recognized as industry leaders and innovators.

The award-winning Cr Series Fixed Focal Length Lenses are stability ruggedized, protecting the lens from damage while maintaining optical pointing and positioning after shock and vibration. They are carefully designed to maintain optical pointing in demanding environments involving vibrations, shocks, and temperature changes. These lenses feature robust mechanics with a simplified focus, a wide range of aperture options, and a stainless steel locking C-Mount clamp. The individual elements are glued in place inside the barrel to prevent decenter, eliminating object shift on the image and ensuring that the object-image mapping remains constant. A point on the object will always map to the same point on your image even if the lens has been heavily vibrated. TECHSPEC® Cr Series Fixed Focal Length Lenses are ideal for calibrated imaging systems such as measurement and gauging, 3D stereo vision, robotics and sensing, autonomous vehicles, and object tracking.
