To find the lens format that will best fit a sensor, Basler ace cameras and Basler Lenses 1/2.5" offer a good example of harmonizing resolutions between products:
• The ace cameras use sensors measuring 1" and smaller, meaning they work with a C- or CS-mount.
• Basler Lenses 1/2.5″ have a C-mount and offer an image circle optimized for the 1/2.5" format and are capable of depicting up to 1/2".
• If an ace camera with a sensor of 1/2" or smaller is used, then the Basler Lens 1/2.5″ is the ideal combination.
The Basler Lenses 1/2.5″ are engineered for sensors smaller than 1/2" and optimized for use with Basler ace, dart and pulse cameras. The high resolution of 5MP is squeezed onto the size of a 1/2.5" sensor, yielding razor-sharp images. If recalculated for an image size of 2/3", this would correspond to a resolution of 12MP.
