Kowa has launched a new lens series for Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). The JC5M-IR series is suitable for cameras with up to 2/3 "chip size.
The new C-mount lenses for ITS are IR-corrected, meaning they minimize the focus shift when switching from visible light to IR illumination for night surveillance.
The new Kowa lens series has a manual iris. Versions of this series with P-Iris and DC-Iris have been available for several years.
The JC5M-IR series is ideally suited for sensors with a pixel size of 3.45μm such as the Sony IMX250 and IMX252. The series is available with the focal lenghts of 16mm, 25mm and 35mm - typical focal lengths for traffic monitoring.
