Compact Industrial Lenses Featuring M42 thread mount is now available at Uniforce

Published: November 18, 2014

The new ZEISS industrial lenses with an M42 thread mount feature a compact size, good image quality and a robust, all-metal body. They are approximately the same size as larger C-mount lenses. The new ZEISS lenses are equipped with a flexible and stable M42 thread and create an image circle of 43 mm. It is therefore ideal for imaging on area sensors between 1.3” and 24×36 mm, or line sensors between 28 mm and 43 mm.

The new lenses are only half the weight of the known ZF lenses from ZEISS and take up only one quarter of the volume taking into account the shorter flange focal distance . The very short flange focal length of just 26.8 mm also facilitates an overall compact camera lens system. The focus and aperture are fixed by knurled screws. Thanks to their compact and stable design, the new lenses can better withstand shocks and vibrations.

Currently, three different lenses are available:

•    ZEISS Biogon T* 2,8/21 Z-M42-I
•    ZEISS Biogon T* 2/35 Z-M42-I
•    ZEISS C-Sonnar T* 1,5/50 Z-M42-I
