MachVis <span class=

Latest version: MachVis 5.2.0

Simple, easy to use, powerful lens calculator for Qioptiq Machine Vision lenses [Rodagon, Rogonar, MeVis-C & Inspec.x lens families]. Now also includes the Optem and mag.x micro inspection systems - with custom configurators.

Given your key object distance and size parameters, MachVis will show all lenses meeting those parameters.  For each lens, MachVis will display all the auxiliary equipment needed to fit the lens to your camera at the correct spatial location for best performance.

Includes schematic of lens flange focal distance, working distance, object/image heights etc, diagram of complete system, ability to save, load &  printout projects and view PDF’s of the lenses with engineering & MTF data & PDF’s of accessories plus Solid models of the lenses and accessories all ready to import into your CAD package.
