In biosciences and laboratory automation or in industries such as electronics, solar and optics the structures of products are becoming finer and finer. In order to inspect them with high precision, machine vision systems increasingly need to be equipped with high-resolution magnification lenses. As a response to the growing demand, MORITEX has developed the Super Optical Device (SOD)-X Series of high power lenses.
“SOD-20X-V1” exceeds the performance of its predecessor model “SOD-10X-V1” (optical magnification of 10x, numerical aperture of 0.23). The telecentric lens has been designed as a multi-functional model with an optical magnification of 20x and a numerical aperture (NA) of 0.35. Coupling it with an optional rear converter lens, such as the SOD-1.5X or SOD-2X, even provides an optical magnification of 30x or 40x.
This high resolution magnification lens has been optimized for machine vision applications and offers a large working distance (WD) of 36.5 mm. Its mountable body has a low profile which allows space to be reserved for oblique lighting. This is supported by an integrated coaxial epi-illumination function. An adjustable diaphragm enables the fine tuning of the depth of field. This allows for a very clear image that is rich in contrast.
