Safety & Security
Reliably secureWe meet with many trials. Minor, major, impossible or hidden. To meet danger head on, you need to keep your eyes open. In a world more in motion than ever before, security is an enormous challenge. But finding solutions is always easiest when you’re perfectly prepared. Good for you if you have helpers. Even better for you if they’re reliable.
You might need them to be your eyes when perfect night vision is required. They can tell the difference – and make it, too. Thanks to extremely good image quality even under difficult conditions.
Optical filter lenses by SCHOTT rule out interfering reflections. Contrast enhancement filters keep certain wavelengths away from the screen. They get the true colours to show, and display data with greater brilliance.
Infrared filter lenses additionally protect from harmful radiation, are non-shading and today indispensable in medical diagnosis. They are a third thinner than conventional filter lenses. Another quality feature and the prerequisite for surveillance cameras to catch out even the Invisible Man. The best thing is: they’re reliable.
Fascinating lifesaver technology
Being a gatekeeper is tough. Holding out in wind and rain. Hot or cold weather. On the job day in, day out. 24-7. The toughest hold up and stay in shape.
Scratch- and impact-resistant materials like sapphire were made for the job of protecting surveillance cameras, detectors and other optical equipment. Elite experts. Specialists.
The same applies to infrared chalcogenide glasses employed for precision duties in thermal imaging optics. Assess the danger, reach a decision. Fascinating technology that saves lives.
Reason enough for SCHOTT to always think of tomorrow, to improve melt efficiency and production processes – and to expand into new fields of application. Installing infrared cameras in smartphones or other mobile devices is visionary. For SCHOTT, an eye towards innovation and customer desires is par for the course. Challenges should be savoured – and mastered.
Keeping a distance
Dive or take off – but always keep a clear view.
Ring laser gyroscopes made of ZERODUR® glass-ceramic with extremely low thermal expansion allow aeroplanes and submarines to navigate with precision. The material has been around for almost fifty years, undergoing constant improvement. The overall package is tried and tested.
But you can always improve. That’s why we at SCHOTT not only tinker, but also think outside of the box. Defining vision and taking the plunge to realise it. All the while making good products even better.
Including optical filter lenses and active and passive laser lenses whose passion lies in keeping their distance. The component packages are perfect for laser range finders.
The tougher the conditions, the more important the helpers. Optical components like prisms and aspherical or spherical lenses made of optical glasses improve image quality in a variety of security and defence applications. The unique surface structure of aspherical lenses prevents imaging errors. Quality increases. And so does certainty: of being securely prepared for anything.
