Factory Automation Lenses -- the new RICOH FL Series
For each resolution level (9 MP, 5 MP, 2 MP, and VGA), the RICOH FL Series provides an extensive line of high-performance lenses with different focal lengths and sensor sizes. Knowhow developed in our camera operations has been put to good use in creating high-quality products with an extremely low level of variation among individual lenses.
FA lenses for use with up to 9 mega-pixel resolution and image processing. These lenses are optimized for a wide range of applications including electronic substrates.
Manual iris lenses compatible with 1" format cameras up to 9 megapixels. These lenses will exhibit excellent performance in capturing precision machining products such as electronic substrates and wafers, which require high resolution lenses.
High resolution and high contrast wide angle lens design
These lenses are compatible with 3.69µm pixel pitch, 1" format FA cameras with resolution of up to 9 megapixels. From the center to the periphery, the lens has a high resolution of 135 lp/mm. Due to a minimal degradation of resolution right up to the periphery it produces sharp, high contrast images.
Smear reduction function
Φ42mm compact design
To fit in a 44mm housing used for most 9 megapixel cameras, these lenses have a Ø42 mm
compact design. Ideal for installation in high performance equipment.
Troublesome lens distortions for image measurement or recognition have been reduced. TV
distortion is reduced to less than 0.1%, with very little image distortion, making it ideal for
Floating mechanism design
Designed with a floating mechanism to control aberration across the entire focus range from
the minimum object distance (0.1 to 0.25 m) to infinity. This reduces image degradation due
to a loss of resultion or contrast as a result of changes to the working distance (distance to
the subject), and it enables a variety of applications from near distance to infinity.
Reduced minimum object distance
A newly developed optic design has enabled a reduction in the minimum object distance
from a maximum of 0.45 m (compared to RICOH products) to 0.1 to 0.25 m for image capture
at even closer distance.
FA lenses for use with 5 mega-pixel resolution and image processing
There are five types, beginning with an 8 mm focal length close-up lens.
These manual iris lenses support 5 mega-pixels (2/3" format). They are perfect for inspection, pattern matching, and alignment uses in which images with high definition from edge to edge definition are needed for large subjects such as wafers, chip mounters, board mounting, etc.
High resolution and high contrast
Supports 2/3" format, 5 mega-pixel CCD camera with 3.45µm pixel pitch. Achieves 140 lp/mm high resolution from center to periphery. Produces sharp, high-clarity images with high-contrast and low resolution loss all the way to the edge.
Φ43 mm compact design
Consistent with the 44 mm-square cases used by many 5 mega-pixel cameras, we have achieved a size reduction to F43 mm for the outer diameter. These lenses are an excellent choice for installation on high-performance devices.
Extremely small level of optical distortion
For both the FL-CC2514-5M and the FL-CC1614-5M, optical distortion on the diagonals is less than 1%. TV distortion is held to less than 0.2%. The resulting extremely low-distortion images are also excellent for use in the image measurement field
Bright to the periphery
Despite the Φ43 mm diameter, the optics accommodate 5 mega-pixels with F1.4 brightness. With peripheral-light-intensity falloff held to an absolute minimum, it is possible to obtain bright and high-resolution images. Although they are wide-angle lenses, with the iris open we were able to raise the peripheral light level to 70% (diagonals) and thereby achieve images that are bright and clear all the way to the periphery.
2 mega-pixel type lenses for a wide range of applications. Select the optimum lens for your focal length and format size requirements
These manual-iris lenses are your best choice for image processing data capture at 2 mega-pixels. With their compact size and high performance, they deliver great results for high-precision manufacturing inspection (chip mounters, wafers, electronic substrates, etc.).
