Models in the NERLITE Edge to Edge Backlight Series (patent pending) provide sharp contrast to outline a part's shape, find edges and view openings such as drilled holes, allowing for various vision operations. High intensity and uniformity are packed into a low-profile industrial package providing optimal thermal management to the LEDs. The "Edge-to-Edge" lighting design of models BL-47x59, BL-71x88, BL-100x100 and BL-50x200 provides the unique ability to mate multiple lights to provide larger illuminated areas.
Lighting plays a key role in the performance of a machine vision system. Optimal lighting yields high contrast images that are read reliably and consistently by the vision system, saving time, effort, and money in the long run. This white paper outlines eight helpful tips for choosing the optimal lighting solution for a machine vision application.
