FPA Calculator

Start with the requirements of your application to determine the lens.  “IRCameras FPA Calculator” calculates the field of view (FOV) based on your sensor’s format (number of pixels in horizontal and vertical dimensions and pixel size) and lens focal length.

In addition, our FPA Calculator allows calculating ideal MTF curves for your sensor and lens as well as shows the MTF of the sensor+ lens combination. In addition to lens focal length, you will also need to be sure that the lens is designed for your application’s spectral region and that the f-number gives you enough photons (larger f-numbers take up less space, but have less light throughput and have lower MTF).
