New additions to Machine Vision lens line-up supporting 3-megapixel 2/3” format
Fujifilm has released five Fujinon HF-XA Series high performance lenses for its Machine Vision system. These new lenses support 3-megapixel 2/3” format and deliver edge-toedge even sharpness and cover five different focal lengths.
To respond to current market demand – particularly in manufacturing – for more product efficiency and stricter quality management, Machine Vision systems also need to realise higher image recognition accuracy and processing speed. Manufacturers are offering Machine Vision cameras with large sensors, high resolution and high frame rate. The optical lenses for these cameras also need to offer high resolution to provide the edge-to-edge even sharpness to secure the recognition accuracy of the systems.
The Fujinon HF-XA series are high-performance fixed focal length lenses with supporting 3-megapixels 2/3” sensor format. The new lenses maintain their sharpness even when wide open under low light conditions or during the change of shooting distance. When used under diverse shooting conditions at various types of production lines, the lenses maintain edge-toedge sharpness from the image centre to all corners for higher image recognition accuracy. Smaller than the 30mm-square form factor common for Machine vision cameras, the new series comes in a cylindrical shape measuring 29.5mm, thereby catering to the development of compact Machine Vision systems. Three mounting holes each are provided for the iris and focus rings so that the lenses can be mounted to Machine Vision from more f lexible angles.
Tapping into optical technologies and precision processing/assembling technologies nurtured over many years, Fujifilm offers a wide variety of lenses for the digital age of premium imaging, including broadcast lenses and surveillance camera lenses. Also in the machine vision field, the company will continue to deliver an extensive line-up of products developed in pursuit of advanced performance, best imaging and high quality in order to meet the needs of all customers.
