ViSWIR & MPT Series Awarded Gold and Silver

Another Award to Set on the Shelf

22 Jun 2021

We are proud to announce our  ViSWIR Lens Series ,  MPT Machine Vision Lens Series , and the  LensConnect Series  were recognized among the best in machine vision today by the judges of the  Vision Systems Design 2021 Innovators Awards program . The judging panel consisted of experts from system integrators and end-user companies.

"The Vision Systems Design team would like to congratulate Computar for their score in the 2021 Innovators Awards program,"  says Chris Mc Loone, Editor in Chief.  "Each year, this unbiased and increasingly competitive program aims to celebrate the most innovative products and systems in machine vision. The Computar Optics Group team should be very proud." 



Computar's  ViSWIR Lens Series received the Gold Honoree award. Computar created the ViSWIR Hyper / Multi-Spectral Lens Series for the latest visible + SWIR imaging sensors. ViSWIR achieves fully-corrected focus shift in visible and SWIR range (400nm-1,700nm):  "By using ultra-low dispersion glass and low partial dispersion glass paired with superior design technology developed from Computar's extensive optics experience, and minimizes the focus shift within a few micron mm at a super wide range of wavelengths."  according to Mr. Katsuya Hirano, Chief Optical Designer, CBC Group.  "With this, spectral imaging is achievable with a single sensor camera by simply syncing the lighting." 



MPT Machine Vision Series received the Silver Honoree award.  Computar's MPT Series is a compact 45MP,  1.4" C-Mount Lens Series engineered to optimize the capabilities of the latest industrial CMOS sensors. The 1.4" Super high resolution Machine Vision Lenses are ultra-low distortion in a compact design available in various fixed focal lengths.


The  Computar LensConnect Series  was awarded as a second Silver Honoree. LensConnect allows remote adjustment of the zoom, focus, or iris and is Plug-and-Play. The lens is ideal for inspection or inventory management and quick and efficient order fulfillment. LensConnect comes with a simple setup software compatible with Windows or Linux. For installation, open your program source and register the map to connect! We can also provide the open program source to get you up and running quickly. The remote control is simple to achieve—even without prior knowledge of the lens—ideal for applications including warehouses and factories.
