Release Announcement Industrial-Vision Fixed Focal Lens for 3.1µm Pixel Pitch Imager Supporting Distinguished High Performance 1.1" 50mm F/1.8(Model M111FM50)
Cameras with Mega-pixel sensors for an array of industrial applications, including production equipment, chip mounters, various test apparatus, machining centers and the like, are migrating towards even higher pixel counts of late.
Tamron offers an extensive range of optics for a whole variety of customer needs so customers can pick and choose the best solution for their own applications. Users of certain types of equipment require particularly high-fidelity images.
In addition to the FA (Factory Automation) series of lenses for high-pixel count imagers currently available, Tamron releases the 1.1" M111FM50 to support 3.1µm pixel pitch imagers, boasting the highest level of resolution among the entire lens lineup.
Furthermore, the new 1.1" format lens model in expands the product portfolio of the company's industrial-vision optics beyond the existing lineup comprised of 1/1.8" (six models in the M118 Series) and 2/3" (seven models in the M23 Series) respectively. With the broader range of product offerings to support the higher imaging quality needs, the scope of applications making the most of high mega-pixel cameras shall be brought to the next height.
Looking forward, Tamron is poised for accelerating development of new industrial-vision lenses, keeping pace with the advancement of cameras geared towards higher pixel counts and more diversified application fields, with greater versatility and handling ease as well as ensuring outstanding optical performance across the entire field.
High Resolving Power
・Industry-leading resolving power optimally tuned for 3.1µm pixel pitch 1.1" imagers renders high-fidelity images equivalent to 12MP resolution.
Image Quality Prioritized for Closer Distance Range
・The superb image quality at the most commonly used closer distance range is achieved in line with the design philosophy that has been demonstrated in our current FA-series lenses.
・Smooth rotation torque of both focus and iris rings facilitates the adjustment of both focusing and aperture.
Sophisticated Optical Design to Deliver Distinguished Image Quality
・Excellent image quality from center to corner is delivered based on the latest optical design technology with discernible resolution and contrast.
