How to use a M12 lens with an industrial C-mount camera?
M12 lenses are not designed for C-mount cameras. They are designed for Boardlevel cameras with a suiting mount. The main differences are the diameter of the mount and the distance from the back of the lens to the image sensors. The difference in diameter thread is easy to solve using an adapter. C-mount lenses have a fixed distance from c-mount to the image sensors. This is not the case for M12 lenses. Each lens can have a different distance from the back of the M12 lens to the images sensor. The exact distance also depends on the focus position. The closer you focus with a M12 lens, the larger the distance from the back of the m12 lens to the image sensor. Often we see that M12 lenses hit the protective cover glass of our industrial camera, making them unsuitable for c-mount cameras. Therefore we have carefully tested all our M12 lenses to be 100% sure that our M12 lenses are compatible with C-mount cameras. We have developed a special C-mount to M12 adapter to make sure you can use all our M12 lenses on our C-mount cameras.
