Tamron’s “newest eye for industry”, the MP2030M-GS, is the first camera module with a CMOS Global Shutter sensor and integrated optical zoom going into series production (see figure 2). Its industrial grade color image sensor provides Full HD (1920 x 1080) video at 60 fps. Thanks to its high dynamic range, the video images bring out rich details of dark and bright image areas in the same scene. A low readout-noise combined with near-infrared sensitivity enable clear captures even under low light conditions.
While TAMRON is widely known for its consumer camera lenses, we have had a strong footprint in Machine Vision since its emergence in the 1980s. Some lens designs of these days were so outstanding they are still in production today.
February 22, 2018, Saitama, Japan - Tamron Co., Ltd. (President & CEO: Shiro Ajisaka; Headquarters: Saitama City), a leading manufacturer of optics for diverse applications, announces the development of a new high-speed standard zoom lens for 35mm full-frame mirrorless cameras, the 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III RXD (Model A036). This signals Tamron’s plans to further expand and improve its lens lineup for 35mm full-frame mirrorless cameras, in addition to its lenses for DSLR and other mirrorless camera formats.
70-210mm F/4 Di VC USD (Model A034). February 22, 2018, Saitama, Japan– Tamron Co., Ltd. (President & CEO: Shiro Ajisaka), a leading manufacturer of optics for diverse applications, announces the launch of the 70-210mm F/4 Di VC USD (Model A034), a compact telephoto zoom lens for full-frame DSLR cameras. Model A034 provides superb optical performance throughout the entire zoom range and features a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.1, the highest in its class.* The design includes an internal zoom mechanism that provides solid mechanical construction and stable, reliable operation. Model A034 also employs a Dual MPU (Micro-Processing Unit) design, which enables high-speed and high-accuracy AF performance as well as powerful VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabilization for flexible and versatile use in various situations. For dependable outdoor use, the new telephoto zoom is equipped with Fluorine Coating and Moisture-Resistant Construction.
TAMRON has developed a new thermal camera module which answers the requirements of versatile applications: In nursing, monitoring systems shall provide continuous information about the position, body movements and body temperature of patients. Especially at night, this monitoring needs to operate in complete darkness and entirely silent. Yet, the resolution of the monitoring system should be rather coarse to protect patients’ privacy.
