The traffic and transport market
Ricoh has added the new FL-CC-MX series to its existing range of lenses for 2/3” 5 megapixel cameras. These high-performance lenses with 12 and 16mm focal length versions provide high resolution, high contrast imaging with low distortion across the entire sensor, ensuring accurate measurements at the periphery of the image as well as at the centre.
The new Dimension range of lenses from Zeiss has been designed for precise high-end applications, where distortion, vignetting and colouring issues must be minimised. Developed specifically for C-mount cameras, these new lenses provide high contrast, razor-sharp images, even at maximum aperture. They are virtually distortion-free across the entire area of sensors up to 4/3” and can resolve pixel sizes down to 2 μm.
Every day the lives of millions of people depend on intact tyres on cars and airplanes. The Carl Zeiss Optotechnik tyre inspection systems equipped with STEMMER IMAGING’s state-of-the-art machine vision components provide the maximum possible safety in this domain.
STEMMER IMAGING has worked closely with London Underground to develop and deliver 104 industrial camera assemblies that are mounted directly onto passenger trains to provide image data on the condition of the wheel/rail interface and the track itself. By acquiring this data during normal timetable periods, more time is available during the 4-hour night closure period to maintain the network’s 1000 km of track, minimising any disruption to services and helping to make the new weekend extended operating times possible.
The Cognex high resolution Vision system In-Sight 5605 identifies codes on transport trays at Continental in Frankfurt. What has been done by manual scanning before, is now carried out automatically without any manual effort at all. The STEMMER IMAGING vision experts actively support Continental with the system implementation.
