Advanced Illumination Introduces Light Hub for Zebra Smart Cameras

Advanced Illumination, the originators of LED lighting for machine vision, is announcing the release of a new class of LED lighting controllers, aimed at revolutionizing machine vision system building through the simplification of camera, light, and I/O accessory interconnectivity. This machine vision solution cuts down on cost and setup time by operating as the connection “hub” between essential machine vision components.

Starting with a variant that connects to Zebra’s popular line of Iris GTX Smart Cameras (previously part of Matrox Imaging), Advanced Illumination has developed the Light Hub for Zebra Iris GTX Smart Cameras. Also known as the HCS-150-ZEB (ZEB for Zebra), this Light Hub is capable of directly powering its connected Zebra camera, while providing essential I/O functionality like triggering and analog dimming control between the connected light head, the Zebra camera, and any connected I/O accessories.

Because this SignaTechTM-enabled controller can supply 4 amps of continuous output and up to 10 amps of overdrive strobe, users don’t need to compromise with their machine vision lighting. With the HCS-150-ZEB, users can choose from hundreds of thousands of Advanced Illumination lighting configurations for unparalleled flexibility. The Light Hub is compatible with any new or existing C1 connection configured light heads. Whether users are looking to connect to a small, collimated backlight, or overdrive strobe a large, high intensity bar light from their Zebra smart camera, the HCS-150-ZEB does so seamlessly.

The HCS-150-ZEB is built for the rigors of industrial environments. Its IP67-rated enclosure ensures protection from dust and water ingress. The controller offers multiple mounting options, including a DIN rail clip for easy integration into controller cabinets, and M4 mounting channels for secure, custom positioning.

Say goodbye to complicated cable management and say hello to machine vision system simplicity with Advanced Illumination’s new Light Hub Series.

To see the Light Hub Series in person, stop by Booth #2286 at Automate 2024 in Chicago May 6-9, where Advanced Illumination will be exhibiting alongside Exaktera sister companies, ProPhotonix and Z-LASER.
