Controller on board: 300.000 lux for Machine Vision

Saturated and tightly collimated light. This succinct description is especially appropriate for the new vicolux® SPOT50 lighting series. With light intensities of over 300,000 lux, completely new lighting concepts become possible. Adjustable and lockable focusing optics produce spot diameters of from 50 to 200 mm which can be produced in all the typical wavelengths available for LEDs.
SPOT50 lighting can work over large lighting distances, such as are those typical in robotics for example. Also, the new lighting is suitable for applications in which cramped conditions hinder the use of lighting from short distances.
The newest LED generation, now becoming available, is able to work nearer the absolute power limit due to its 'electrically constructive' temperature management. Here, it is protected by an integrated controller which can tolerate a wide range of input voltages, from 10 to 30 V DC (false polarity protected), and which also manages the mechanical or electrical brightness adjustment. In the 'power flash' version, flash times of between 1 and 100 µs are achieved, at a maximum flash rate of 100 cycles per second, whereby even the fastest processes can be 'frozen'. The flash controller is already 'on board', which means that flash operation involves no extra costs and requires no additional control units.
SPOT50 lighting can be accurately and securely set up and aligned due to robust and well-designed mounting options. Mounting is via M6 screws or via the Montech aluminium profile mounting system. For use in particularly tough conditions, the lighting optics may be safeguarded by use of a protective plate that screws onto the filter thread of the unit.
Lighting components from Vision & Control are ideal automation components for mechanical and plant engineers as well as for automation technicians. They are simple to install and handle and are available world-wide as standard components.
