A vision to trust with lenses that
- deliver best-in-class image contrast,
- support infrared light for night vision training,
- and withstand shock and vibration of the motion-based platforms.
Our suggestion: FS400-HR with Barco FLC lens range
During daylight, we can all rely on our own visual observation for situational awareness. At night, however, our view is limited. A night vision device can enhance the external view using InfraRed. The Barco FS400 simulation projectors have an added built-in InfraRed LED light source to stimulate Night Vision Goggles, making the projector capable of simulating dawn, day, dusk and night environments for training with and without goggles. However, not all lenses can be used for these night vision projections. The Barco FLC lenses are optimized with a special coating to allow optimal transmission of IR light.
Another specific for the simulation projectors is the fact that their often used on motion bases. The Barco FLC lenses are designed specifically to withstand motion and vibration through an improved barrel design. For an unprecedented performance on motion platforms, on some of the lenses you can even lock the internal lens elements into position, using the cam follower pins/plastic bushings and screws supplied with the lens. For absolute stability in every situation, you can also use our lens support minimizing the lens tolerances and providing extreme stability in even the toughest dynamic conditions.
Impressive projections with lenses that
- enable creativity,
- empower high-brightness visualizations,
- and ensure outstanding images, whatever the projection distance.
Our suggestion: UDX projector with Barco TLD+ lens range
The TLD+ lenses are designed with a thicker high-quality glass to manage the laser power of our 3DLP projectors without compromising on the projected image quality. The models range from 0.38:1 ultra-short throw up to 12.3:1 long-throw ratios, allowing you to place the projector at a considerable distance for those large outdoor projection mappings.
Another benefit of the TLD+ lens range is its compatibility with more than one of our 3DLP projection platforms; from the still very popular Barco legacy HDX and HDF projectors to the more recent laser series like UDX, UDM and XDM. And they’re designed to be future-proof also matching all our upcoming projector platforms. So when updating the Barco projectors in your fleet or installation, you don’t necessarily need to invest in new lens gear. If you‘ve selected our high-quality, glass TLD+ lens range with variable throw ratio in the past, you can reap the benefits from your investment again.
