C-Mount Lenses | FA Lenses

C-mount lenses are lenses that have a 17.5mm flange height. These known for their interchangeability, adjustable F# and large format size.

C-Mount lenses cater to various applications and are frequently used in machine vision and industrial inspection as they are compatible with high resolution global shutter sensors.

Our compact and cost effective C-mount lenses include mutliple product lines for different sensor format types. 

These lenses can be used with cameras from Allied VisionBaslere-con SystemsFLIR, iDSThe Imaging Source, Lucid Vision, and more.

Our lenses range from 1mm to 50mm EFL and 5° to 230°. The types of M12 lenses include fisheye, wide-angle, no-distortion, and telephoto. Each of our lenses is available with, or without, an IR cut off filter.

These can be used with embedded vision systems and imaging devices from Allied Vision, e-con SystemsFLIR, iDS, Basler, The Imaging Source, Lucid Vision, and more.
