Alrad Imaging is pleased to announce that Kowa has added a new ruggedized 1” lens series to its portfolio. The new HC-V Series 4MP lens series allows measurements without pixel deviation even in high vibration and shock environments and when the lenses are tilted. Thus, it is ideal for applications that require increased durability and high optical performance such as robotics applications and 3D measurements.

This is made possible by the special design of the new Kowa ruggedized lenses. The conventional locking screw system for fixing adjustable iris blades has been replaced with a system that utilizes robust interchangeable iris plates to set the F-Stop. A two way reversible nut is used to lock in the focus position. All internal lens elements of the lens are glued together for maximum stability. In 2015 Kowa already released the ruggedized 2/3” JCM-V Series with the same design.

Kowa also offers on request to glue the internal glass elements of all series from a certain minimum order quantity.
