Adimec offers enhanced Anti-Reflection Coating (ARC) options to improve quality and accuracy of imaging solutions


Reduced reflection to 0.25% achievable with optional and custom solutions


Eindhoven, The Netherlands, February 23, 2011.  Adimec (http://www.adimec.com/), a world leader in application-specific, leading-edge industrial camera solutions, today announced the availability of enhanced Anti-Reflection Coating (ARC) options for its QUARTZ camera series. The new offerings can significantly improve the quality and accuracy of its cameras by reducing reflection to as little as 0.25% of the light beams processed by the sensor. While standard ARC's delivered with off-the-shelf sensors typically provides protection levels of 2% of light at bandwidth ranges of 400 - 700nm, the Adimec solutions can consistently achieve sub- 0.5% protection at bandwidths of 400nm up to 900nm.


The Adimec ARC options are available in single and multilayer configurations, with protection levels ranging from 2% to 0.25% depending on bandwidth required. The company also offers custom ARC solutions to provide a specific level of protection that meet individual product requirements. The custom solutions allow further optimization that takes into account the spectral characteristics of the intended application, determined by factors such as illumination, lenses and mirrors.


Adimec has seen a strong demand for after-market ARC enhancement from customers requiring the highest quality and accuracy results in areas such as metrology and electronics inspection. The combination of the unique Adimec True Accurate Imaging® technology and the company's optical engineering expertise, allow it to deliver superior solutions than standard off-the-shelf components enable.


Adimec has a proven expertise in applying custom ARC to high-performance cameras. It utilizes its state-of-the art facility to ensure unmatched levels of cleanliness in the application process, as well as using the highest grade premium quality glass in its cameras. The result is the industry's highest level of ARC protection available.


The Adimec ARC options enhance the sensitivity of the sensor in many applications. In machine vision applications, for example, too much reflection on the sensor (i.e. more than 2%) interferes with the light reflected by the device under test. This causes measurement errors. By offering protection levels that result in as little as 0.25% reflection, the Adimec solutions greatly improve the accuracy that can be achieved with their cameras.
