ZEISS Industrial Lenses

Lenses for large image formatdistagont2815_crop

ZEISS lenses are compatible with most industrial cameras. The F-Mount and the M42 Mount are popular standard for high-resolution industrial cameras with large sensor sizes up to 24 x 36 mm and for line scan cameras with sensors up to 43 mm. ZEISS lenses are widely used in machine vision, automation, quality inspection, optical metrology as well as in research and development e.g. with High Speed cameras. Thanks to the large image format, our objective lenses are ideal for the constantly increasing use of high-resolution image sensors with bigger sensor formats. Due to the precise manual adjustment of the helical focusing mount you will gain much better results than with comparable lenses.

The Infrared Edition of these lenses are suitable for the use with special cameras like IR cameras without an IR blocking filter.
The transmission of the IR lenses adds up to 70% at 1000 nm.

Lens Cutlens-cut

ZEISS camera lenses for large format, we offer high resolution image quality for technical and industrial applications. ZEISS lenses for industrial applications are key components in complex production processes as well as in measuring tasks, quality assurance and many other applications. Here they prove their outstanding image performance, reliability and high quality.

ZEISS Stress test

ZEISS lenses need to operate perfectly in extreme conditions, withstanding everything from scorching heat and bitter cold to sandstorms and severe vibrations. The video shows how ZEISS researchers systematically submit lenses to extreme stresses in order to arrive at findings that can help in future lens design and development.

The video explains how a lens with fixing screws was tested regarding following norms:
DIN EN 60068-1: 1988-06
DIN EN 60068-2 Part 64: 2009-04
MIL-Std 810G
