Tamron announces the launch of Compact and Lightweight LWIR Fixed-Focal
February 23, 2016, Saitama, Japan – Tamron Co., Ltd., (President & CEO Morio Ono), an integrated optics manufacturer and leader in the security/surveillance equipment industry, announces the release of Compact and Lightweight LWIR Fixed-Focal Lenses for 10-12µm Pixel Pitch Detectors 20mm F/1.2 (Model: LQF2012N / LQF2012A). This newly announced product will be displayed and demonstrated at SECURITY SHOW 2016 starting from March 8, 2016 at Tokyo Big Sight.
Tamron, since the initial launch of its first LWIR lens model in 2012, has successively released an array of high-performance LWIR zoom lenses. Standout advantages of the LWIR technology that can deliver superb images under dark or adverse weather conditions, together with outstanding optical performance, have been highly appreciated by users.
While Tamron’s LWIR Zoom Lenses have received positive recognition in a wide range of applications including fast-growing security / surveillance systems, demand for fixed-focal lenses is getting increasingly stronger, addressing versatile applications and strong use needs. Detectors, on the other hand, are migrating toward smaller geometrical dimensions, mandating lenses of compatible form factors. To accommodate the needs of the market in transition, Tamron announces the development of a new set of 20mm F/1.2 fixed-focal lenses compatible with the industry-leading 10-12μm pixel-pitch detectors (Model: LQF2012N / LQF2012A). By use of a proprietary optical design, the effective image circle is expanded to support the widely-used 17 μm pixel-pitch QVGA format while attaining a compact and lightweight barrel construction.
Tamron as an integrated optics manufacturer aggressively pursues lenses with ever higher performance and excellence in utility, expanding LWIR applications and new market potential.
