Opto Engineering TC3MHR and TC5MHR Core PLUS Series

Compact Large-FOV Telecentric Lenses for Sensors Up to 4/3”

tc core plus camera pic

TC3MHR-5MHR CORE PLUS series are large FOV telecentric lenses for the latest generation sensors up to 1.1” like the IMX304 and 4/3” sensors like the IMX387. They are specifically designed to accurately measure large objects in a reduced space.

Inspired by catadioptric telescopes, their folded optical path allows large FOV imaging while keeping the overall footprint compact. The size reduction is up to 45% compared with other telecentric lenses on the market.

The length and working distance of a telecentric lens strongly impact the size of a vision system. This is especially critical when a large FOV telecentric lens is used with a telecentric illuminator, as the overall dimensions of the system are doubled. For this reason the working distance of TC3MHR-5MHR CORE PLUS series has been reduced to make a measurement system as compact as possible.

  • Make your large FOV system up to 45% smaller
    TC3MHR-5MHR CORE PLUS lenses are up to 45% shorter than other telecentric lenses on the market. The short working distance minimizes the size of the whole system.
  • Designed for the latest camera sensors
    TC3MHR CORE PLUS telecentric lenses are designed for sensors up to 1.1” like the IMX304, while TC5MHR CORE PLUS series lenses are ideal for sensors up to 4/3” like the IMX387
  • Smart integration
    TC3MHR-5MHR CORE PLUS lenses integrate a mounting flange for easy integration without additional clamps.
  • System compactness is a competitive advantage
    TC CORE PLUS lenses minimize the size of your system, resulting in less manufacturing, shipping and storage costs.

TC CORE PLUS lenses feature standard extruded aluminum profiles with M5 T-slot nuts for easy mounting. No additional mounting clamps are required, making their integration easy and cost-effective.

TC3MHR-5MHR CORE PLUS telecentric lenses take less space in your system, resulting in lower manufacturing, shipping and storage costs. A smaller vision system or measurement machine is the preferred solution in the industry and leads to more sales.
