Mega-pixel cameras used for machine-vision applications including production equipment, circuit board mounting equipment, various test equipment, and various engineering machines, are migrating toward higher resolution. Due to the accelerating progress of integration and miniaturization of semiconductor and electrical components, increasingly higher definition and resolution are required for the inspection of these devices. Higher resolution is also required outside the areas of machine-vision applications, for example, in social infrastructure, traffic monitoring and surveillance, and railroad system monitoring and inspection.
To meet the growing demand for higher resolution in these expanding markets, Tamron announces three new models of machine-vision lenses compatible with 1.1” imagers and 24-mega pixel resolution.
For use in machine-vision applications limited in installation space, the new models are compact-designed with an outer diameter φ43mm and are equipped with an improved anti-vibration and anti-shock mechanism.
The amount of focus-shift is reduced to a minimum when the visible-light transitions to NIR bands, facilitating the use of the new lenses in the NIR (Near-IR) band for applications such as monitoring of traffic infrastructure systems.
Tamron continues development of industry-leading machine-vision fixed-focal lenses that address customers’ critical requirements and needs and pursues high optical performance that assures distinguished image fidelity and excellent user utility.
