Selecting the Right Zoom Lens

June 21, 2024

Choosing the right machine vision lens is critical for achieving optimal performance in imaging applications. This guide covers the essential parameters and considerations for selecting a zoom lens, ensuring it meets specific application requirements.

 

Fundamental Parameters

To select the appropriate imaging lens, it’s essential to understand the basic components of an imaging system. Key parameters include:

  • Working Distance (WD): The distance between the lens and the subject.
  • Field of View (FOV): The area that the lens can capture.
  • Resolution: The level of detail the lens can capture within the given FOV.

These parameters must align with the requirements of your application to ensure optimal visual performance.
