Intelligent Lighting

Thanks to advanced technology, lighting solutions for machine vision image processing has become even simpler, flexible and efficient. Intelligent lighting (smart lighting) brings benefits to various machine vision applications by enabling lighting to be integrated with cameras in a plug & play process, and providing the necessary lighting data which is important for Industry 4.0 systems.

Key functional drivers and benefits of the Intelligent Lighting are:

  • lIntegration of camera and lighting within one machine vision environment (one place to set-up all devices), as well as the direct link into imaging software
  • Ease of use, Plug & Play
  • Lighting data for Industry 4.0 for predictive maintenance, diagnostics and continuous improvement purposes
  • Easy and safe implementation of advanced lighting control functions such as overdriving, accurate strobing, multi-pulsing

Camera Light

For easy plug & play connectivity between cameras and lights

Basler Camera Light, powered by CCS - A comprehensive series of Basler SLP feature compatible lighting, jointly developed by both Basler and CCS, the world's leading camera and lighting manufacturer for machine vision applications, offers the maximum ease of use and great cost performance.

The system comprises a combination of harmonized components (camera + light + cables) and an integrated lighting controller, where the light is controlled directly from the camera in a ‘plug and play’ environment, allowing easy set-up of a powerful machine vision system in a timely and cost effective way.

In addition, the Basler pylon Camera Software Suite provides one configuration environment for both camera and lighting, and all parameterization of light and camera is done via just one interface - including automatic timing for strobing and overdriving.

Series production is scheduled for Q4 2019.

For specialist applications requiring guaranteed illumination levels

FASTUS technology offers a whole new level of machine vision lighting solutions with sensing, monitoring and feedback functions, realizing a stable and reliable inspection. It also guarantees lighting intensity and integrates with GenICam for Industry 4.0 maintenance and performance data.

Sensing - Variation correction and stabilization

Current correction circuit corrects LED forward current variations to achieve uniform brightness. Temperature compensation circuit corrects brightness fluctuation due to rising temperatures after lighting comes on and ambient temperature changes.

Monitoring - Monitoring and adjustment of brightness and temperature variations

Luminance monitor function allows numerical brightness control, with upper/lower limit settings enabling alarm output. Absolute luminance values based on factory default data can be used as indices to enable uniform brightness across lighting.

Feedback - Brightness maintenance

Brightness is automatically adjusted to maintain initial settings.
