STEMMER IMAGING To Distribute Smart Vision Lights Illumination Products In Europe

19 Dec 2011

STEMMER IMAGING has become a master distributor for the European market for the range of machine vision lighting products from U.S. supplier, Smart Vision Lights (SVL). SVL is a leader in developing and manufacturing high current LED machine vision lights, with an intelligent driver in every light.

SVL’s portfolio of machine vision lighting includes LED spot and line lights, backlights and ringlights, and models with diffuse light. Smart driver technology provides a constant current to every light allowing operation in continuous or strobe mode. This provides particularly easy integration into the STEMMER IMAGING range of BOA smart cameras from Teledyne DALSA.

Mark Williamson, Director – Corporate Market Development at STEMMER IMAGING, said: “We are delighted to increase our portfolio of illumination products for industrial vision with the range of LEDs from Smart Vision Lights. The STEMMER IMAGING engineering team is continuously testing product combinations and applications so that customers can be provided with independent advice on what combination of components will form the industrial vision system best suited to their application. By validating each component we allow the user to develop machine vision solutions without worrying about the technology, so the excellent compatibility of the Smart Vision Light range with other products we offer was an important consideration.“

SVL’s OverDrive™ range of industrial vision LEDs feature the unique SafeStrobe technology, which applies safe working parameters to ensure the LEDs are not damaged by driving them beyond their limits. The OverDrive™ series provides repeatable intensity control and pulsing by using a microprocessor to watch and control the power to the LEDs for safe operation.

Models with ratings up to IP68 as well as industrial vision lights that offer structured light for triangulation applications complementary to laser lights are also available.
