The Kowa LMVZ38A-IR 1/3" 3 to 8mm Day & Night Lens (IR) incorporates the 3-Cam design. This innovative system solves the problem of de-centering which sometimes occurs in the conventional pole system. Not only is the movement of the lens impaired by de-centering, but the optical performance suffers too. The 3-Cam design also reduces internal reflection. As a result, the image obtained by this design is much sharper than that of the conventional pole system. With the 3-Cam design, you can expect high optical performance and a longer service life.

There is a broad spectrum of applications where the ability to monitor and identify even the smallest detail is critical. One of the factors in optimizing system performance is the selection of the proper lens for the application. The advanced optical design of this Kowa day & night lens provides low color aberration and high-definition images required for high-risk installations that require state-of-the art security solutions.
