Resolve Optics’ new Model 357 Non Browning HD Zoom Lens for 1/3-inch sensors provides users operating in radioactive environments true high definition quality images over a 10x zoom range.
Using specialist non-browning glasses, the Model 357 is able to produce sharp images free of the strong yellow tint that has traditionally been a limiting issue when using radiation resistant lenses on colour sensors.
The Model 357 HD 10x zoom lens has been designed to operate in environments subject to high level radiation, such as nuclear fuel handling, reactor active zones and nuclear waste storage plants. The specialist non-browning glass used in the Model 357 is proven to withstand long-term exposure to radiation up to a dose of 100,000,000 radians and temperatures to 55 °C without discoloration.
Operating at f/2, the Model 357 provides high image resolution and minimum geometric distortion from 400nm to 770nm, and can image objects from 800mm to infinity without using add-on adapters. When focused at infinity, the lens achieves high image resolution on axis at full aperture throughout the zoom range without refocusing.
