Carclo PIR lenses are among the most copied. Many lenses have been copied by simply duplicating a new tool using an existing original Carclo lens. This saves a huge amount of effort and the extremely complex tool used to make every high quality lens is no longer needed. It is highly tempting to use these lenses as they are often a few percent cheaper, but they will never meet the same high performance as the original.
If you are concerned that you may be using inferior lenses please let us demonstrate the benefit of using original Carclo lenses.
Surface finish affects IR transmission and adds signal noise.
The difference is clear. On the left an original Carclo lens and on the right a poorly made copy.
