July 29, 2010 ‚Äî Microscan introduces NERLITE HI-BRITE machine vision lights with the brightest LED illumination in their class. Lights provide illumination over large areas in applications such as package sorting, food processing and packaging, automotive or aerospace assembly, or any large surface inspection. For example, in a machine vision application inspecting automotive engine components, more illumination may be needed or the light may need to be placed further away (suspended above head level, pinch zones, etc.). HI-BRITE lights allow the intensity to be increased and focused to provide illumination to the part, even at a distance. Versatile options, such as multiple sizes and color wavelengths, 10¬∞ spot and 50¬∞ flood lenses, provide the flexibility to be used at both near and far distances to accommodate a variety of applications. For ease of use, HI-BRITE lights feature an integrated controller to quickly adjust light intensity from ultra bright to low light, and operate in continuous or strobe mode. Additionally, the HI-BRITE series feature standard industrial M12 connectors, and an industrial IP67 rating for protection against dust, fibers and immersion in liquid. Up to four HI-BRITE lights can be connected (daisy chained) on one power supply and, like all NERLITE products, the 24 V power standard matches most industrial factory settings.The HI-BRITE provides numerous benefits to users over existing machine vision lights:
Cost savings: With the HI-BRITE internal controller, there is no need to buy extra equipment
Easier to use: Quick-connect up to four lights on one power supply for daisy chain applications
Flexibility: Range of sizes and wavelengths, low to ultra bright intensity, continuous or strobe modes
Reliability: Designed with long-life LEDs for reliable, long-term performance
As part of the NERLITE product line, the HI-BRITE series joins a broad machine vision lighting technology portfolio of approximately 300 standard lights, as well as custom designs for unique applications. NERLITE lights are 100 percent LED-based and offer the advantages of fast response, long life, multiple wavelengths and high-intensity capability. NERLITE machine vision lighting is designed for reliability in industrial applications. NERLITE is a pioneer brand in machine vision lighting and has an excellent reputation in the industry for reliable, high-quality machine vision illumination. Microscan recognizes the importance of lighting in successful machine vision applications and will continue to innovate and invest in this technology. Microscan provides a complimentary three-year warranty on machine vision lighting products. Visit HUMicroscan‚Äôs Online Community to see videos of the NERLITE lighting in action.
