New MRC coating for Schneider industrial filters

(PresseBox) (Bad Kreuznach, ) Schneider-Kreuznach industrial infrared filters now have a new MRC-IR coating (Multi Resistant Coating). This new development offers superior antireflection in the non-visible wavelength range of light, i.e. the near infrared range from 620 to 1,100 nm. Schneider-Kreuznach IR filters feature high-absorption, robust lenses combined with the new MRC-IR coating. They are mainly used in machine vision applications, for monitoring traffic with night vision and other industrial and research uses in the infrared range.

Schneider-Kreuznach almost always uses colored glass from Schott for its high-precision filters. Its scratch and water-resistant as well as dirt-repelling outer coating makes the surface of the glass easier to clean and protects the lens, even in a coarse industrial environment. The minimum residual reflection (0.5 %) means that MRC glass reliably eliminates ghost images or double images caused by camera sensors reflecting light. B+W filters are produced using state-of-the-art technology and are subject to continuous quality control during production. The different filter models are constantly being enhanced to ensure the best possible results. In this way, Schneider-Kreuznach produces filters of the highest quality at world market levels.
