Kowa has added a new ruggedized 1” lens series to its portfolio. The HC-V Series 4MP lens series allows measurements without pixel deviation even in high vibration and shock environments. Thus, it is ideal for applications that require increased durability and high optical performance such as robotics applications and 3D measurements. This is made possible by the special design of the lenses. The conventional locking screw system for fixing adjustable iris blades has been replaced with a system that utilizes robust interchangeable iris plates to set the F-Stop.
