Mega-pixel cameras used for machine-vision applications including production equipment, print circuit board mounting equipment, various test equipment, and various machine tools, are migrating toward higher resolution.
Tamron currently offers a variety of mega-pixel machine-vision lenses with 30 different models compatible with 1.1”, 1/1.2”, 2/3”, 1/1.7” and 1/1.8” imagers.
Currently, rapid growth is expected in the use of machine-vision lenses compatible with 1/1.7” and 1/1.8” imagers of 6-mega pixel resolution. To meet the need, Tamron’s M117FM series is added with five new models. The new M117FM portfolio, in addition to the two models currently available (wide-angle 1/1.7” 6mm F/2.4 (Model: M117FM06) and 1/1.7” 8mm F/2.4 (Model: M117FM08)), offers a total of seven models to meet the requirements of a wide range of field of view in machine-vision applications.
The expanded lineup of compact-size M117FM models, with an outer diameter of φ29mm, offers an optimum selection for all machine-vision applications, and assures compact size, high-resolution, high-contrast imaging for all shooting distances including up-close distances.
Tamron develops industry-leading high-resolution fixed-focal lenses that address customers’ critical requirements and needs in all machine-vision applications and pursues optical performance that assures distinguished fidelity in all image details with excellent user utility.
