Lenses for Embedded Vision Applications
Lens by Type
M12/M10/M8/M6 Mount Lenses
Screw mount (S-Mount) lenses in M12, M10, M8, and M6 thread sizes for embedded vision applications.
S-mount lenses (board mount lenses) are available in M6 through M12 diameter mounts. These include a wide range of focal lengths, from fisheye lenses to long lenses, and specialty lenses, including telecentric lenses, IR-sensitive lenses, and lenses for Time-of-Flight (ToF) and SWIR applications.
C/CS Mount Lenses
Larger screw mount lenses for machine vision, security, and industrial vision system applications.
C and CS mount lenses are widely used for factory automation, security and surveillance applications. These are available in a wide range of focal lengths, both in fixed and variable focal length varieties from leading manufacturers like Fujinon and Kowa.
Large diameter bayonet mount (F-mount) lenses for high-resolution imaging.
Larger bayonet or flange mount (F-mount) lenses are often the best fit for vision system applications requiring large sensor sizes, or easily interchangeable lenses. These include high resolution and HDR imaging applications and drone cameras.
Lenses for Embedded Vision Imaging Applications
Our primary focus is on lenses for embedded vision systems, machine vision systems, and factory automation and inspection systems. Embedded vision systems are typically compact, low-power or battery-operated vision systems that use an edge device for real-time image processing for real-time applications. Lenses for embedded vision systems are usually M6 through M12 diameter S-mount , fixed focal length lenses.
These include a wide range of focal lengths, from fisheye lenses to long lenses (from under 1mm to 9mm), and specialty lenses, including telecentric lenses, IR-sensitive lenses, and lenses for Time-of-Flight (ToF) and SWIR applications. Whether you are looking for lightweight lenses for automotive or embedded vision applications, or ruggedized models with a high resolution and low distortion for industrial applications – FRAMOS has got you covered.
Lenses by Application
Automotive LensesAutomotive OEM manufacturers are increasingly incorporating vision systems into the automotive ecosystem. Automotive lenses are used for everything from backup and front-bumper cameras, to dashcams, to attention tracking systems for driver safety. These require automotive-qualified lenses which are small, rugged, inexpensive, and trustworthy.
Machine Vision Lenses for RoboticsMachine vision systems for robotics typically use small, ruggedized lenses and are designed to perform well at a fixed working distance and focal length. Robotics vision systems employ a wide variety of lenses, including fixed focal-length lenses, Near-infrared (NIR) sensitive lenses for Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensors, and even telecentric lenses where precise positioning and alignment of parts is required.
Lenses for Sports and EntertainmentSmall S-mount lenses are widely used for sports and entertainment applications. M6, M8, M10 and M12 lenses are perfect for rugged, compact sportscams, webcams, high-end streamer cams, and even motion tracking sensors for video game consoles. Lenses for entertainment applications like webcams and the sensors in video game consoles need to be compact and inexpensive, while sportscams often demand ruggedized lenses that can stand up to rough treatment.
High-Quality Imaging LensesHigh quality imaging lenses with a large diameter and a sharp edge-to-edge focus across the entire image circle are required for applications that use large-format and high dynamic range (HDR) image sensors. These include both C/S and bayonet (F-mount) lenses. One example of an application requiring high-quality imaging lenses is survey and video camera systems for drones, which often use HDR image sensors with resolutions of 4K or higher.
Lenses by Sensor Technology
SWIR LensesSWIR lenses are specifically designed for SWIR (short wave infrared) sensors and applications and are optimized for wavelengths from 0.9 micrometers to 1.7 micrometers. SWIR cameras are useful for a variety of industrial inspection applications, because they can visualize things that can’t be clearly seen in the visible light spectrum, like early signs of spoilage or bruising in fruit.
ToF LensesToF lenses offer optimum spectral performance for ToF (Time-of-Flight) depth-sensing sensors and applications. ToF cameras are useful for a variety of applications that require high-resolution depth sensing, including navigation for robots and autonomous guided vehicles, people-counting, and measuring and sorting packages.
