Resolve Optics has announced a new Model 192-001 non-browning 6x zoom lens, which offers high performance over an extended 24-144mm focal length range making it perfect for remote monitoring tasks in nuclear reprocessing and nuclear power plants.

Based upon a proven design, the lens’s speciality glass components can withstand long-term exposure to radiation, up to a dose of 100 million RAD and without loss of transmission and minimal colour change.

Operating at f/3.6, the Model 192-001 provides good image resolution and minimum geometric distortion from 400 to 750 nm. When focused at infinity, the Model 192-001 will maintain focus throughout the zoom range without the need to refocus, Reslove Optics said.

The C-mounted Model 192-001 can be simply mounted on Newvicon tubes, Chalnicon tubes and CCD devices. It is available in 1/2-inch and 2/3-inch image formats.
