Jade lenses for the industry

JADE lenses are perfectly adapted to technical requirements with a maximum sensor size of 1.2" (19.3 mm) and an impressive resolution of up to 2.4µ pixel. The compact lenses feature a low chief ray angle, making them ideal for use with all generations of SONY Pregius™ sensors. As C-mount lenses, they also offer flexibility and versatility. With five different focal lengths from 12mm to 50mm and an initial aperture of F2.8, you can match JADE lenses to your exact needs. With a broadband AR coating in the 400-1000nm spectrum, they offer an exceptionally high resolution of 24.5M/2.74µm pixels, specifically matched to Sony's 4th generation Pregius S™ technology and similar sensors. This guarantees razor-sharp images and precise measurement results.

Another highlight of the JADE lenses is their anti-shading design, which ensures uniform brightness distribution and prevents shadowing caused by microlenses. This means you always get consistent and reliable results in your image processing. The metal housing makes the JADE lenses extremely robust and ensures reliable and stable image positioning even under demanding environmental conditions. This makes them ideal for applications such as automatic optical inspection, 3D and 2D metrology, and robot vision.

Mounts for the JADE lenses


A C-mount is a specific mechanical connection widely used in the industry for cameras and lenses. It is defined by a diameter of 1 inch (25.4 mm) and 32 threads per inch (C-mount thread). This mount allows lenses to be easily and securely attached to cameras and is widely used in machine vision and other applications.

C-mount connectors provide a robust and proven solution for connecting lenses to cameras. The standardization of C-mount also makes it easy to change lenses to meet the changing needs of different applications.
