telecentric 

Pertains to an optical system in which its aperture stop is positioned so that the entrance pupil falls in the first focal plane, the exit pupil is at infinity, and the rays through the centre of the entrance pupil from all points on the object are parallel to the axis in the image space. Similarly, if the exit pupil lies in the second focal plane the entrance pupil will be at infinity, and the rays through the centre of the exit pupil will be parallel to the axis in the object space.

Both the working distance and the mechanical length of Core Plus lenses and illuminators have been optimised to make the system as compact as possible: compared to other telecentric lens and illuminator systems with similar fields of view, the Core Plus series is up to 45 per cent shorter.
Also, the system should incorporate a high dynamics 3D scan head, exchangeable f-theta telecentric lens, linear and rotary/swivel stages for realizing complex multi-axis laser processing strategies on axisymmetric, prismatic and free-form parts.
Also, the model described in this section is mainly based on the assumptions of the telecentric lens [14], which cannot be applied directly to the standard perspective lens condition.
Such a 3D scanner working in micrometer range is typically equipped with a telecentric lens having a limited Depth Of Field (DOF) at a specified working distance [WD.sub.C].

Reference [2] theoretically describes the measurement errors caused by out-of-plane displacement and self-heating of the camera; it further establishes a high-accuracy two-dimensional digital image correlation (2D-DIC) system using a bilateral telecentric lens to minimize the errors.
In the optical fringe projection system, a specially installed telecentric lens, together with four-step phase shift method, was employed for the projection in order to retrieve accurate and real-time phase data of the deformed surface.
As usual for such sensors, it has a telecentric lens. With such a lens, object rays are not running concentric, but approximately perpendicular to the very large lens plane and to the--relatively smaller--measuring object.
In fact, for real camera lenses, such as a fixed length lens, a zoom lens, or even an expensive high-quality telecentric lens, image distortions unavoidably exist due to lens aberrations and misalignment of optical elements [7].
The TM includes a telecentric lens for point-to-point measurements and image capture for local or network data storage.
VT-S700 uses a telecentric lens and is said to reduce image distortion and improve inspection accuracy at the edges of large field-of-view.
