Introduction to Machine Vision Lighting

  
Learn about basic lighting concepts, bright-field and dark-field lighting, and the benefits of effective lighting in vision applications.
 

Edge to Edge Backlighting

  
Demonstration of the NERLITE Edge to Edge Backlight Series, which provides sharp contrast to outline a part's shape, find edges and view openings such as drilled holes, allowing for various vision operations.
 

Using the "A T-E-S-T" Method

  
Learn how to use the "A T-E-S-T" method to identify the effects of different lighting techniques on part features. Also includes helpful hints for using infrared and color in your application.

DOAL Light

  
With the DOAL's coaxial (on axis) illumination, light rays reflect off a beam splitter directly on to an object at nearly 90°. With this coaxial lighting approach, specular surfaces perpendicular to the camera appear illuminated, while surfaces at an angle to the camera appear dark. Non-specular surfaces absorb light and appear dark.
 

Red, White, and Blue Light

  
This video shows what happens when different colors of light are applied to a multicolored Microscan logo. 
 

Dome Light

  
This video showcases the NERLITE Dome Light. Dome lights provide diffused, uniform light. They deliver an economical and practical solution for applications with shiny, bumpy surfaces.
 

Ring Light

  
The NERLITE series of LED Ring illuminators offers packaging and mounting advancements that emphasize durability and versatility. They are ideal for applications requiring cost-effective illumination of diffused surfaces.
