You might think that everything has already been invented about illumination for machine vision, but you are wrong! It’s still possible to be innovative in this field. Selecting the correct illumination product is as important as the choice of camera you use in a system and yet, it is a decision that is frequently overlooked.
Here are some reasons for that, one is being confused when it comes to choosing from hundreds and thousands of part numbers, you can feel you are losing reactivity by going through the time consuming and inefficient ‚loan and test‘ process. I bet you see yourself in this picture. Launched at the VISION tradeshow, TPL Vision showcased a new concept in LED Lighting to the Machine Vision Community, designed to address this oversight. Named the Modular Ring Light, this versatile and multi-functions illumination product range and accompanying laboratory kit has been designed to allow customers to be fast, reactive, efficient, and focus. Comprising of a controllable, bi-colour LED lighting ring with different fitted diffusors, the Modular Ring Light product range is designed to let customers make their illumination choices quicker than ever before. With only a few components in your lab (4-5), you can simulate over 100 illumination configurations. By using the new product, varying the light effects is quick and simple with push-button control. Manual control selects both the sector illuminated and the colour for maximum flexibility. Divided into four quadrants, the ring can present light from individual, pairs or all four sectors. Each sector and colour can be controlled from a remote PLC, to create dynamic effects if needed. Thus, the ring can replace a square or two parallel little bars. A cleverly designed LED square ring is used in conjunction with accessories to change the light direction. You can create either a Dome, Low Angle, or Dark Field effect, together with different working distances thus will provide you with hundreds different illumination results. Once the most suitable accessory has been selected, the same robust products can then be installed onto a production line using conveniently located securing screws and engaging the remote-control capability.
