General Description

Robust lenses for mounting close to hot product where ambient temperatures are subject to extreme variation. Impervious to water and steam and hence well suited for extremely harsh environments.Used in conjunction with flexible armoured optic lead, these lenses provide a high level of optical accuracy by allowing the selection of the ideal lens arrangement for the installation. There are four styles of lenses available.
