Fujinon unveils 1/2in lenses for HD security
Fujinon will introduce a new series of variable-focus HD lenses for 1/2in camera formats at the NAB show (Booth #8141) that are designed for indoor security (CCTV) applications. The company will show four new three-megapixel models in its DV series megapixel lens range, which can be used on both C and CS mount cameras. A 5mm C-mount adapter ring is required when using a C mount lens with a CS mount camera.
With its manual iris, the DV3.4x3.8SA-1 has a focal length range of 3.8mm to 13mm, an aperture range of F1.4 to T360, and a 97-degree horizontal angle of view at 3.8mm. An auto iris DC Type version (the DV3.4x3.8SA-SA1) is also available.
For those applications that require a greater object distance between the camera and the lens — such as long hallways or outdoor environments — users can upgrade to the DV10x8SA-1 lens, which offers a focal length range of 8mm to 80mm without compromising an aperture range of F1.4 to T360. The DV10x8SA-1 lens is a manual iris version. The lens is also available as DV10x8SA-SA1, an auto iris DC Type model.
Locking screws for zoom and focus and rugged metal mounts are standard features on all Fujinon vari-focal lenses.
