Industrial Cameras and Vision Systems 



1/4" to 1/3" Format CS Mount Lenses

C-Mount lenses are most commonly found on industrial or machine vision cameras. The lens provides a male thread which mates with a female thread on the camera. When purchasing a lens, in addition to the focal length, you should also consider the size of the sensor and the resolution. A lens with a 1mp resolution will work on a 5mp camera, but a 5mp lens will give a better image. CS Mount lenses are generally lower cost and lower performance. As a generalisation, they are usually manufactured with a plastic body and don't have the locking thumbscrews that are used with C Mount lenses to lock focus and iris. CS Mount lenses are predominantly used in the CCTV industry.
