Resolve Optics Ltd reports has received its single largest ever order for non-browning zoom lenses. The order, from nuclear inspection specialists Visatec GmbH, is for integration into their high-radiation resistant PTZ tube cameras being supplied for a project in Chernobyl, Ukraine.

Visatec high-radiation resistant tube cameras with integrated LED-Lighting are designed for visual inspections in nuclear areas. Applications for these cameras include inspection of fuel elements, pressure vessels and nuclear cores as well as inspection of loading and offloading of nuclear materials.

All optical elements within Resolve Optics radiation tolerant lens designs are made using cerium  oxide doped glass or synthetic silica enabling them to withstand radiation doses of up to 100,000,000 rads and temperatures up to 55°C without discoloration or degradation of performance.

All Resolve Optics non-browning lenses provide high image resolution and minimum geometric distortion from 400 to 750nm.
