Features

Lenses for large image format

ZEISS lenses are compatible with most industrial cameras. The F-Mount and the M42 Mount are popular standard for high-resolution industrial cameras with large sensor sizes up to 24 x 36 mm and for line scan cameras with sensors up to 43 mm. ZEISS lenses are widely used in machine vision, automation, quality inspection, optical metrology as well as in research and development e.g. with High Speed cameras. Thanks to the large image format, our objective lenses are ideal for the constantly increasing use of high-resolution image sensors with bigger sensor formats. Due to the precise manual adjustment of the helical focusing mount you will gain much better results than with comparable lenses.

The Infrared Edition of these lenses are suitable for the use with special cameras like IR cameras without an IR blocking filter.
The transmission of the IR lenses adds up to 70% at 1000 nm.

Stress Test

Lenses for large image format

ZEISS lenses need to operate perfectly in extreme conditions, withstanding everything from scorching heat and bitter cold to sandstorms and severe vibrations. The video shows how ZEISS researchers systematically submit lenses to extreme stresses in order to arrive at findings that can help in future lens design and development.

The video explains how a lens with fixing screws was tested regarding following norms:
DIN EN 60068-1: 1988-06
DIN EN 60068-2 Part 64: 2009-04
MIL-Std 810G

The Industrial Edition of ZEISS lenses are provided with lock screws for both the aperture setting and focus. Both the locking screws and the stable design make the lens inured to vibrations, improve measuring repeatability and avoid machine downtime.

ZEISS Interlock Compact

New lens family for industrial use – focus on compactness and large sensor compatibility

The new ZEISS Interlock Compact lens family consists of four lenses: ZEISS Interlock Compact 2.8/21, ZEISS Interlock Compact 2/35, ZEISS Interlock Compact 2/50 and ZEISS Interlock Compact 2.4/85.

The ZEISS Interlock Compact lens family features a short M42x1 mount (18mm FFD) with screws that allow exact locking of aperture and focus. The M42x1 mount offers outstanding stability. The camera lenses feature an image circle measuring 43 mm and are therefore suitable for line sensors of up to 43 mm (2 k - 8 k) or for area scan sensors of up to 24 x 36 mm (16 - 71 megapixels).

All lenses impress with their high and unwavering image quality and precise manual focus. The aperture can optionally be continuously adjusted using the de-click mechanism, allowing precise exposure setting. Their low weight and robust metal design also make the lenses suitable for rough industrial use.

The ZEISS Interlock Compact 2.8/21 and ZEISS Interlock Compact 2.4/85 display excellent contrast across the entire image field whereas the ZEISS Interlock Compact 2/35 and ZEISS Interlock Compact 2/50 show extremely low distortion.

ZEISS Interlock

Three additional family members

The ZEISS Interlock lens family now consists of six lenses: The existing lenses (ZEISS Interlock 2.8/21, ZEISS Interlock 2/50, ZEISS Interlock 2/100) are now accompanied by the latest family members ZEISS Interlock 2.8/15, ZEISS Interlock 2.8/18 and the ZEISS Interlock 2/135.

All lenses impress with their high and unwavering image quality and precise manual focus. The camera lenses feature an image circle measuring 43 mm and are therefore suitable for line sensors of up to 43 mm (2 k - 8 k) or for area scan sensors of up to 24 x 36 mm (16 - 71 megapixels).

All ZEISS Interlock industrial lenses feature an improved fixture for focus and aperture. The enhanced antireflective coating reduces ghosting and flare effects in critical light situations. ZEISS Interlock lenses are available with either a F-mount, EF-mount or a M42x1 mount. The aperture can be set continuously in the F mount version.

All Interlock lenses feature a floating design that ensure a steady optical performance regardless if the lenses are used at infinite focus or MOD. Their metal housing makes the lenses very robust.

These lenses replace the ZEISS Distagon T* 2.8/15, ZEISS Distagon T* 3.5/18, ZEISS Distagon T* 2.8/21, the ZEISS Makro-Planar T* 2/50, ZEISS Makro-Planar T* 2/100 and the ZEISS Apo-Sonnar T* 2/135 the for industrial applications.
