The Opto Engineering MC series macro lenses are designed to capture images of small objects when both very good resolution and nearly zero distortion are needed.

Small object fields of view are often observed by means of long focal length lenses equipped with an additional spacer, used to adjust the working distance.

Unfortunately this approach leads to several problems like high image distortion, resolution loss (especially at the corners), poor depth of field and chromatic effects, thus making this method not suitable for good imaging neither compatible with accurate measurement requirements.

All these problems can be overcome by using MC Series, specifically designed for MACRO imaging. MC Series lenses are compact and cost-effective optics providing very high image resolution. A very low optical distortion makes these lenses perfectly suitable for precise dimensional measurement applications.

Key advantages

  • Zero distortion
    MC Series are suitable for any measurement application where telecentricity is not required
  • High resolution
    MC Series has been specifically designed to work in "macro" configuration
  • Compactness
    MC Series small outer diameter (15 mm) fits those applications where only little room for optical components is available
