Industrial Ruggedized Compact C-Mount Lenses

Our standard, megapixel lenses stand up to the vibrations common in industrial environments. Their solid design and sturdy construction ensure years of reliable service.

However, for situations where lenses are exposed to high vibration or high-G shocks or when lenses are inaccessible and simply must not fail, ruggedized lenses may be desirable.

A ruggedized lens starts as a standard lens that:

  • is completely disassembled
  • has thread-locking compound placed on all its internal threads and retaining rings
  • has its adjustable iris replaced with an application-specific fixed iris (optional)
  • is reassembled, tested, and shipped with a certificate of compliance if requested.
