Shadow free targets with IDEC’s surface illumination LED technology
29 October 2014
IDEC has added a range of LED lights with 'surface illumination' technology to its family of robust LED lights for use in the harshest of environments.
Surface illumination technology gives extensive improvement to the light output and provides shadow free target illumination. The new additions start with a small mini version (LF1D-C mini). As the name implies the LF1D-C (mini) is a compact high luminance LED light.
Using the latest LED illuminated surface technology a no-multi shadow light can improve the processing accuracy of the target object. The consistency of light from the illuminated surface helps to ensure irregularities or small scratches of the target surface can be accentuated, improving the overall processing accuracy.
Measuring only 100mm x 50mm x 25mm with a light distribution angle of 120o the LF1D-C (mini) LED light is perfect for those applications where space is limited or the target object is small and where a bright consistent light is needed. This device has recently found its way into a vision system application where a high brightness, no shadow results and a high IP rating were needed.
The unit is rated to IP67F thanks to the robust construction with aluminium housing and a stainless steel & reinforced glass front cover. The connection cable is either via the back of the unit or from the side (option is selected by product type).
At the other end of the product line-up is the LF1D-H (385 x 80 x 24.8mm) & J (510 x 80 x 24.8mm) providing the perfect solution for the more traditional machine tool applications. The flat, no-multi shadow LED light provides less glare and can be used to illuminate larger work areas and is capable of illuminating small surface scratches & irregularities that are on the target object.
Two lengths are available; 365mm and 510mm; providing high power 2000 / 3000 lm Luminous Flux allowing a good level of brightness even when mounted at a distance from the target. And with a light distribution angle of 120o makes the LF1D-H & J suitable for replacing fluorescent lights in the industrial application including machine tool work areas. Each unit is manufactured from dicast aluminium housing with stainless steel and reinforced glass cover providing an IP67F ingress protection.
To support the increasing demand for information to support these new markets and application a dedicated website has been launched, providing the latest news and information on IDEC’s LUMIFA product line.
