June 12, 2018 – Paris, France – MKS Instruments, Inc. (NASDAQ: MKSI), a global provider of technologies that enable advanced processes and improve productivity, has announced the Ophir® SupIR family of compact infrared lenses, designed for use in 10-12µm pixel size uncooled cameras, at Eurosatory 2018. The new collection includes 11 lenses optimized to meet reduced size, weight, and power (SWaP) standards. They deliver high MTF and range from 2.4mm f/1.0 athermalized fixed focus, to the new LightIR 15-75mm f/1.2 motorized continuous zoom, with fields of view (FOV) from 91.9 to 2.4 degrees. The lenses work with a variety of camera formats, including VGA, QVGA, and XGA. They are targeted for use in air, marine, and land applications, such as unmanned aerial systems (UAS), unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), perimeter surveillance, handheld devices, and drones.
According to Yitzhak Raif, VP/ GM, Ophir Optics Group, "The latest market trend is a shift to smaller, 10-12µm pixel size cameras. To address the needs of these next generation devices, we've worked with major camera manufacturers to refine our designs. The new collection of lenses responds to demanding SWaP standards. This results in a reduction in the size of the optical element, as well as a shortened focal length and longer detection range."
The Ophir SupIR infrared lenses are available now. OEM prices available on request.
