TECHSPEC® Rugged Blue Series M12 Lenses are Stability Ruggedized, protecting the lens from damage, while reducing pixel shift and maintaining optical pointing stability after shock and vibration. Each lens consists of several precision glass optics that are glued in place inside a compact, aluminum housing. Gluing the glass optics prevents even the smallest movements that often cause pixel shift. Object to image mapping is maintained even after heavy shock and vibration; if the center of the object maps onto the center pixel, it will always map to that same center pixel. TECHSPEC Rugged Blue Series M12 Lenses are ideal for calibrated imaging applications such as measurement and gauging, 3D stereo vision, robotics and sensing, autonomous vehicles, and object tracking. These lenses are available in a variety of f/# options ranging from f/2.5 to f/8.

Edmund Optics has created multiple product families of our TECHSPEC® M12 S-Mount Lenses, which are designed to provide high resolution. These high performance lenses feature precision glass designs in a metal housing and have optimized specifications between each product family to meet your application needs.

  • Blue Series M12 Lenses: High resolution finite conjugate designs optimized for machine vision working distances.
  • Rugged Blue Series M12 Lenses: Ruggedized versions of our Blue Series M12 Lenses, utilizing the same optics.
  • Green Series M12 Lenses: Finite conjugate designs optimized for machine vision working distances.
  • Red Series M12 Lenses: Infinite conjugate designs optimized for high resolution performance out to infinity.
  • HEO Series M12 Lenses: Harsh Environment Optics (HEO) sealed versions of our Red Series M12 Lenses.
  • Liquid Lens M12 Lenses: Integrated liquid lens for fast electronic focus.
