The DSL315 is designed to acheive 190º Diagonal Field of View and 140º Horizontal Field of View on a 1/2.5” sensor
with multi-megapixel resolution. In addition, the lens is designed to provide full sensor coverage on a 1/2.5” CMOS
format, with resolution of up to 10 Mega-Pixels. With its low F/2 aperture, the lens also performs very well in low light. Another key feature of this lens is its compact design which makes it compatible with either M12 board-mount cameras or C/CS camera designs. C/CS adapter for this lens is available upon request. The lens can be purchased with or without an infrared (IR) cut

“The all-glass and metal design ensures the DSL315 is a robust lens that will perform well over a wide range of environmental conditions , while the high resolution, large imager format and large field of view allow for multi-megapixel camera systems that can maximize these sensors’ performance,” said Ben Roberts, Security Sales Manager at Sunex. “This combination of features makes the DSL315 an ideal choice for high-resolution security and surveillance applications that demand the most in terms of image quality, low-light performance and field of view.”
