Particularly in industrial image processing, harsh conditions often prevail. Camera systems must be able to withstand shocks, vibrations and rapid accelerations in particular, for example in robotics applications. At the same time, however, a high-quality and high-resolution image should also be taken.
Until some time ago, this was a contradiction in terms. It was hardly possible to create high-resolution images under vibrations or shocks. Today, however, this is possible with special lenses and most FUJINON lens series are now available as shock and vibration resistant models.
How is the Anti-Shock & Vibration function achieved?
FUJIFILM investigated the effects of shocks, vibrations and accelerations in a special test environment. It was found that the optical axis of lenses shifts by up to 26 µm without anti-shock. These data are usually not found in article details when buying lenses, so you will only be confronted with this fact after the purchase. But then it is usually already too late.
The new anti-shock lens design consists of an elastic connection of the internal lens assembly. The movement of the optical axis is thus reduced to only 4 µm. Thus, despite shocks and vibrations, flawless and sharp images are still possible.
What standards do the new Anti Shock & Vibration lenses meet?
The new Machine Vision anti-shock lenses from FUJIFILM meet the DIN EN 60068-2-6 standard. Even with strong shocks and vibrations of up to 10G, the mechanical and optical elements remain in place and ensure very good sharpness performance. This means you are well prepared for the harsh conditions in many applications or you can only take high-quality recordings thanks to these lenses.
Which FUJINON anti-shock lenses are available?
Currently the following lens series from FUJINON are available with this function:
- CF-ZA-1S series with 23MP resolution and an image circle diameter of 1.1″
- HF-12M series with 12MP resolution and an image circle diameter from 2/3″ to 1″
- HF-XA-5M series with 5MP resolution and an image circle diameter of 2/3″ to 1.1″
- HF-HA-1S series with 2MP resolution and an image circle diameter of 2/3″
