Edmund Optics

Edmund Optics, a manufacturer and distributor of precision optics and imaging products, will be displaying telecentric lenses. The company will demonstrate how lenses with large fields of view (small magnification) can be used to improve imaging performance by giving large depths of field and eliminating parallax.

On display will be Edmund Optics' new Techspec TitanTL telecentric lenses, which are designed for machine vision and metrology applications requiring large field of views. The lenses have field of view options up to 242mm; operate with sensor formats of 1/1.8-inch, 2/3-inch, 1-inch and 4/3-inch; and give less than 0.1° telecentricity.
