Credit Card Imaging Lens

The customer needed a small, compact lens with a wide field of view and very low distortion. No “off-the-shelf” lens would accommodate their specific needs.

Production::Built 50 low-cost lenses, comparable in price to an “off-the-shelf” lens, but with much better specifications.
Additional:The customer successfully demonstrated the system to perspective customers.
