The laser speed gun utilizes an infrared laser lens that shoots a beam at cars going by. The laser beam is then reflected off of the car and back to the speed gun. The laser speed gun measures the roundtrip time it takes for the laser beam to reach the car and reflect back. Light from a laser moves at an extremely fast pace (about 984,000,000 feet per second) (read more)

Accurate sorting is a critically important aspect of industrial and product distribution and what used to be a very slow tedious process (organizing chaos) is now completely automated and runs much faster than the human eye can process.
Computer powered sensor lenses serve the purpose of actually sorting the thousands of packages that run through the center. Scanning... (read more)
Understanding what focal lengths mean and how they work is very important when trying to find the perfect lens for the job.
The focal length of an optical lens is basically the measurement of how strongly the lens can converge or focus and diverge or defocus light. The focal length is determined by how quickly the lens can take collimated rays and bring them into focus. Len... (read more)
