Smart Vision Lights Introduces RHI200-DO Lightgistics Machine Vision Light With Hidden Strobe Technology
Smart Vision Lights (SVL), a global leader in the design and manufacture of innovative LED illumination solutions, introduces the RHI200-DO Lightgistics series light, which features 64 LEDs in a 205 mm x 205 mm ring light for intense uniform lighting at long working distances of up to 2000 mm. Equipped with Hidden Strobe technology, the light delivers all the advantages of strobing without the disturbance and disorientation often linked to LED strobe lights.
Hidden Strobe technology allows LEDs to automatically trigger thousands of times per second, pulsating at speeds imperceptible to the human eye and generating the appearance of uninterrupted illumination. The innovative technology helps maximize the abilities of machine vision systems while safeguarding employees from the disorienting effects commonly associated with flashing lights.
“Today’s high-speed machine vision systems use LEDs that frequently pulse to capture images of rapidly moving objects, but this strobing effect can generate unpleasant and potentially hazardous work environment conditions,” according to Steve Kinney, director of training, compliance, and technical solutions at Smart Vision Lights. “The RHI200-DO minimizes these drawbacks by utilizing Hidden Strobe technology, which enables high-speed machine vision systems to leverage the power of strobed LEDs without inadvertently creating safety risks or requiring shielding.”
Boost Logistics Operations Through Lighting
Lightgistics lights specifically address the challenges of accurate high-speed barcode reading and optical character recognition (OCR) on highly reflective plastic wraps and shipping bags. Dual OverDrive™ technology utilizes SVL’s new Deca OverDrive™ and standard OverDrive™ engines, which together allow end users to easily attach polarizers that maximize light output in high-speed conveyor systems.
“Logistics and warehousing businesses today cannot afford to sacrifice speed and throughput, which means any machine vision system deployed on the floor must be capable of accurate code reading, even when reading through plastic,” said Kinney. “Lightgistics LEDs help improve logistics operations by delivering lighting that is 10 times brighter than standard continuous mode, which helps improve track-and-trace while maintaining the speeds needed for today.”
The RHI200-DO is an OverDrive™–only light source with a high-intensity ring light. Its integrated camera mount fits most common machine vision cameras and can be directly connected and controlled through a camera’s trigger output. The RHI200-DO’s onboard charging capacitors ensure powerful bursts of energy while maintaining a low consistent electrical draw. The IP65-rated bright field operates at working distances between 500 mm and 2000 mm with 10-, 14-, and 30-degree lens options.
