    A lens mount is a mechanical interface between camera body and the lens.

    Video surveillance market makes use of C- and CS-mounts.

    C-mount lenses are less known compared to CS-mount lenses.

    Mainly used with ½” sensors and greater, the camera body should support the lens mount type.                

    However, a CS-mount camera body can be equipped with an extension adapter to support C-mount lenses. The extension ensures that the distance between lens and sensor is correct, in order to prevent damages.

     

    C-mount lenses have a focal distance of 17.526mms (0.7” inch)

    CS-mount lenses are the most commonly used lenses. Mainly used with ½” sensors and smaller

    • Camera body should support CS-mount lenses
    • CS-mount lenses got a focal distance of 12.50mm (0.492” inch)

     

    CS mount camera with C mount lens is also applicable for AVIOTEC - since we are able to use in total 3 different lenses with AVIOTEC. One of them (the 12-50mm lens) is C-Mount.

     

    Lens type for AVIOTEC:

    • Vari focal lens:
    • Manual iris control
    • DC-iris control
