Microscope lens for Industrial Machine Vision Cameras

    Microscope lenses

    Microscope lenses enable high magnification, precise inspection, and analysis. There are two parts to our microscope lenses, which we have handpicked. We can ensure maximum image quality and minimal distortion by making this choice for you.

    Our machine vision cameras with sensor sizes up to 1.1" can be directly mounted with the lens, which is made to work with C-mount fittings. We offer two versions of our lenses: one with an additional coaxial light input and the other without.

    Our C-mount industrial cameras work well with microscope lenses, so you can effortlessly turn an industrial USB3 or GigE camera into a digital microscope for you applications. You can take enlarged, high-resolution pictures by using microscope lenses.

    Difference between microscope lens and telecentric lenses

    When choosing a lens for your machine vision application, understanding the differences between telecentric and microscope lenses is essential. Telecentric lenses minimize distortion and offer consistent object size for precise measurements. Their moderate magnification (0.1x to 10x) and larger working distance provide more setup flexibility.
    Although microscope lenses are great for close-up inspection of small details at magnifications of 10x to 100x+, their fixed magnification and short working distance can restrict their use in some situations.

    Magnification in microscope lens

    For high magnification machine vision applications, microscope lenses can be a good option, but there are a few important factors to consider when choosing the lens magnification:
    • High Magnification: Compared to standard machine vision lenses, microscope objectives usually offer much higher magnification, ranging from 10x to well over 100x. This lets you see your object's minuscule details.
    • Fixed Magnification: Microscope objectives have a fixed magnification, in contrast to certain machine vision lenses that have zoom capabilities. Depending on the precise dimensions of the features you need to check, you must select the appropriate objective.
    • Working Distance: The minimum distance between the lens and the object is achieved by the extremely short working distance of microscope objectives. This might be a drawback in machine vision setups where a greater distance between the object and the camera is required.

    How to select the right microscope lens

    Which level of magnification is appropriate will depend on the nature of the application. Lower magnification lenses offer a wider field of view, while higher power objective lenses offer the highest magnification possible. The version with coaxial input is suggested if adding a light source is something you want to do quickly. To determine the ideal solution for your application, get in contact with us.

    Microscope lens with or without coaxial input

    There are microscope lenses that can accept coaxial light inputs. A coaxial light input is present in the lens if the part number ends in -CO. There is no coaxial light input in the lens if the part number ends in -NI. You can take advantage of a more compact design with this microscope lens when compared to the version that uses coaxial light input.
    You have more flexibility when selecting a microscope lens with coaxial light input because you can always go with the technical light configuration. Coaxial light inputs are perfect for lighting shiny, flat surfaces like printed circuit boards and metal.
    We suggest using our led spot light as the light source for the coaxial light input LED2-SPOT-12V-3W-White.


    The microscope lenses are employed in many different applications that call for a short working distance and high magnification. Applications include wafer inspection and laboratory sample analysis.

    Microscopy software for image processing

    Designed to automate and control microscopic applications, Micro Manager (µManager) is image processing software for microscopy. It is designed to function as a full-featured image processing and microscope control suite. With its source code included, this microscopy image processing software can be easily customized to meet your unique machine vision or microscopy requirements (e.g., by using your own camera drivers).

    Quality control & Warranty of our microscope lenses

    The quality control process for lens production is based on a number of deliberate steps. The preparation of the production line and a quality inspection of the incoming raw materials are the first steps in the process for lenses like the microscope lens. This preparation entails cleaning the equipment and inspecting the personal protective equipment (PPE) worn by the employees. Every stage of the production process adheres to a rigid protocol that is monitored by tool-assisted or visual inspections. A final inspection is performed on each product to ensure that all mechanical and optical requirements have been met. Furthermore, inspections for sample control are carried out prior to shipment.

    This procedure produces thorough reports that address every facet of production. The microscope lens will be labeled as abnormal if it ever fails to meet the specified quality standards. To ensure the procedure and batch quality, steps will be taken. Maintaining quality from the raw materials to the final product is ensured by regular monitoring.
