Lens Selector iPhone application
Edmund Optics (EO) has released a free iPhone/iTouch App to help customers select the appropriate lens for vision integration projects. The easy-to-use Lens Selector iPhone application is the perfect tool to ensure users have the correct imaging lens for machine vision applications. Only three user-defined inputs – field of view (FOV), working distance, and sensor size – are required to provide the closest product matches from EO's extensive line of Techspec imaging lenses.
Even if a lens does not match the user's requirements, the application suggests the closest lens, which is typically within several millimetres of either the FOV or working distance, and most users can adjust their setup to accommodate for this discrepancy. Once the results are displayed, the user has the option of selecting the lens with the closest performance based on either the FOV or the working distance. This provides the user with the most flexibility and best lens choice for their application. Contact information for an Edmund Optics imaging engineering is displayed if further assistance is required.
With periodic upgrades for new lens families, the EO Lens Selector is a great resource for engineers and systems integrators. Even long-time integrators can benefit from the most up-to-date selection of Techspec imaging lenses.
