New infrared wide-angle lens with environment-resistant coating for thermographic cameras

hybrid DLC coated 1.0 / 7.5 millimeter infrared lens mounted to IR-TCM HD thermographic camera (PresseBox) (Jena, ) The new Jenoptik 1.0 / 7.5 millimeter wide-angle lens has been specially designed for thermographic cameras of the current VarioCAM® HD and IR-TCM HD series. Its innovative hybrid DLC ("Diamond Like Carbon") surface coating protects the high-quality optics when used under extreme ambient conditions.

To see more - to know more: Large field of view for smallest details.

A large 135° x 100° field of view enables measurement and surveillance of large objects - even from a short distance. Our high-resolution thermographic cameras VarioCAM® HD and IR-TCM HD, for which the lens was manufactured, are used for a precise measurement of smallest thermal object details and hot spots; the series' clear advantage is the image resolution of up to 3.1 infrared megapixels when using the 7.5 millimeter wide-angle lens.

Tough: Hybrid DLC surface coating.

Stationary IR-TCM thermographic cameras for industrial use, in particular, have to resist severe endurance tests because rough ambient conditions and process-related influences may affect camera and optics.

While people wear safety goggles to protect their eyes under such conditions, the infrared optics of the thermographic camera is protected by a newly developed coating. The new hybrid DLC coating combines the durability of a diamond coating with an improved transmission and multispectral functionality of a dielectric coating thus guaranteeing optimum reproduction. The lenses with our innovative coating technology are manufactured by the Optical Systems division of Jenoptik.

Jenoptik, as your development and production partner, offers customized infrared lenses with hybrid DLC coating for military, civil and industrial purposes.
