Lenses with C-mount
To attach a lens to a camera, requires some type of mounting system. Both mechanical stability (a loose lens will deliver an out of focus image) and the distance to the sensor have to be defined. General purpose lenses with C-mount, the most common mount type in machine vision applications.
Tip: A C-mount lens can be fitted to a CS-mount camera using a 5 mm extension ring, however, using a CS-mount lens on a C-mount camera will not allow the lens to focus.
