1/1.2” 12mm F/2.0 (Model: M112FM12 )
*In machine-vision lenses that are compatible with a 1/1.2” imager and 5-mega-pixel resolution (survey by Tamron, effective as of October, 2016)
November 1, 2016, Commack, NY – Tamron Co., Ltd. (President & CEO: Shiro Ajisaka; Headquarters: Saitama City, Japan), an integrated optics manufacturer and leader in the security/surveillance equipment industry, announces the market launch of a series of fixed-focal lenses for machine vision use that support full 5-mega-pixel resolution for 1/1.2” imagers in industry-leading compact bodies: Model: M112FM12/M112FM16/M112FM25.
Mega-pixel cameras used for machine-vision applications including production equipment, substrate mounting equipment, various test equipment, and various engineering machines migrate toward larger-size imagers and higher resolution. A variety of lenses are available in the market to fit such applications. However, a camera-and-lens combination needs to be optimized for the individual installation condition. Some specific production equipment, substrate inspection equipment, and industrial-use printers mandate lenses that can be installed in a limited space, and ensure high resolution and high contrast imaging in a close-shooting distance.
Tamron’s machine-vision mega-pixel lens portfolio currently offers lenses for 1.1” imagers (4 models in M111FM series), 1/1.8” imagers (6 models in M118FM series), and 2/3” imagers (7 models in M23FM series, 3 models in 23FM series). With the addition of new compact lenses for 1/1.2” imagers (M112FM series), the portfolio offers the widest selection of high-resolution lenses that address customers’ particular needs.
Tamron, as an integrated lens manufacturer, aggressively develops distinguished high-resolution fixed-focal lenses that address customers’ critical requirements in machine vision, particularly for high optical performance that assures high-fidelity over the whole image, and advanced user utility.
