Apexel Bi-Telecentric Technology

*MTF stands for Modulation Transfer Function (spatial frequency). This shows that when the lens forms black and white pattern bars of continuously varying intensity, the contrast decreases in the number of black and white pattern bars per millimeter of image plane. MTF is a method of evaluating the ability of a lens to reproduce contrast. Apexel uses MTF to check both image formation and contrast from the center to the edge of the image area.

Apexel MTF Evaluation Lenses


  • Designed to position the chief ray parallel to the optical axis of the lens on the object and image sides by controlling the angle of view to “near zero”
  • Image side magnification is maintained regardless of how close/far the object is located, providing an ideal solution for dimensional measurements
  • High-precision measurement even if the object is positioned at an angle or at different heights
    The sensor has a constant angle of incidence, produces fewer shadows, and produces images with very uniform brightness
    In addition to reducing the effects of object position shifts, stable, repeatable measurements are possible even if the camera or sensor mounts are not firmly fixed along the optical axis

Apexel’s high-quality telecentric lenses have become the industry standard for semiconductor, flat panel display and other electronic manufacturing applications that require machine vision for identification, mounting, alignment and/or inspection. Our lenses achieve high-contrast, high-resolution, and low-distortion imaging with optional integrated coaxial light sources that use our exclusive hot spot noise reduction technology. The technology incorporates features of advanced optical design and user-friendly interface. Catalog specifications alone cannot fully demonstrate the high quality of MORIET lenses.
