Features of designing objectives telecentric in the object space are discussed. The optical layout of three telecentric objectives developed for dimensional inspection systems using the shadow projection method is presented. A method for monitoring the quality of manufacture of such objectives having small distortion (less than 0.02 %) and small non-telecentricity (less than 0.01°) is described. Comparison of experimentally obtained optical characteristics of two objectives manufactured by us and one objective manufactured by the Thorlabs company (U.S.) is carried out.
