Key advantages

  • Large FOV in a super compact form factor
    TC CORE PLUS telecentric lenses are up to 45% shorter than other telecentric lenses on the market. They are designed to image extremely large FOVs in a reduced space.
  • Optimized working distance
    Working distance of TC CORE PLUS series has been reduced to greatly minimize system dimensions.
  • Smart integration
    TC CORE PLUS lenses integrate a mounting flange for easy mounting without additional clamps.
  • Boost your sales
    TC CORE PLUS lenses allow you to reduce the size of your vision system, resulting in less manufacturing, shipping and storage costs.

TC CORE PLUS lenses take less space in your system, resulting in less manufacturing, shipping and storage costs. A smaller vision system or measurement machine is the preferred solution in the industry and may lead to more sales.

Notes

  1. Given the squared shape of the front window, the lens forms a rectangular image.
  2. Working distance: distance between the front end of the mechanics and the object. Set this distance within ± 5% of the nominal value for maximum resolution and minimum distortion.
  3. Working f-number (wf/N): the real f-number of a lens in operating conditions.
  4. Maximum angle between chief rays and optical axis on the object side. Typical (average production) values and maximum (guaranteed) values are listed.
  5. Percent deviation of the real image compared to an ideal, undistorted image: maximum (guaranteed) values of the uncorrected image are listed.
  6. Residual distortion after calibration with TCLIB Suite software library, using a PTCP calibrations pattern and a fully GenICam compliant camera. For setup information see related table.
  7. At the borders of the field depth the image can be still used for measurement but, to get a very sharp image, only half of the nominal field depth should be considered. Pixel size used for calculation is 3.45 μm.
  8. Object side, calculated with the Rayleigh criterion with λ= 520 nm
  9. Indicates the availability of an integrated camera phase adjustment feature.
  10. Maximum dimension of the clamping flange.

Recommended setup

Recommended setup

For best measurement accuracy, TC CORE PLUS telecentric lenses should be used with:

  • TCLIB Suite, an Opto Engineering® proprietary software library for distortion calibration and overall optimization of telecentric measurement setups.
  • A fully GenICam compliant camera.
  • A specifically designed PTCPxxxxx chessboard calibration pattern.
