Interlock Compact

Carl Zeiss

Noticeable quality and high value stability qualify ZEISS lenses for decades of intense use. The high-quality craftsmanship of the all-metal mount, the metal housing and the aperture ring as well as the robust front bayonet ensure reliable results.

ZEISS Interlock Compact lenses are equipped with special screws to fix focus and aperture to get stable and reliable measuring results even in rough industrial conditions. Both the locking screws and the stable design make the lens inured to vibrations, improve measuring repeatability and avoid machine downtime.

The optical elements of ZEISS lenses feature T* anti-reflective coating on all surfaces and an optical design that guarantees images of superior brilliance at all times, even in unfavourable lighting conditions. The first coating techniques were employed by ZEISS as long ago as in the 1930s.

About this series

The Interlock® Compact lens family impresses with its high and unwavering image quality and precise manual focus. Their low weight, compactness and robust full-metal housing make the lenses suitable for rough industrial use. The lens family features a short M42x1 mount (18 mm FFD) and superior fixture screws that allow exact locking of aperture and focus.

They fit to line scan cameras with sensors of 41 mm (4k – 8k) and area scan cameras with full frame sensors of 36 x 24 mm (up to 42 Mpixel). The outstanding difference of ZEISS Interlock Compact lenses against traditional F-Mount types is the M42x1 mount with a very short flange focal distance (FFD) of only 18,0 mm.

The Interlock® Compact lens family from ZEISS consists of five focal lengths from 21 mm to 85 mm and are key components in complex production processes (Machine Vision) as well as in optical metrology, medical applications, traffic enforcement, quality assurance, sports and many other applications.
