Intelligent Lighting Solutions Are Easy To Install

Camera manufacturer Basler now offers lighting solutions for image processing systems. In cooperation with CCS, manufacturer of LED lighting for machine vision applications, Basler has developed a comprehensive portfolio of various lighting components.

 

The lighting concepts are designed for Basler ace U and L cameras equipped with the company’s SLP feature. The patent-pending feature enables direct communication between the camera and the light source. This reduces the complexity of a vision system and enables any user to easily integrate lighting early on, thus shortening the time spent on design and installation. Depending on the application requirements, users can choose between two approaches.

The flexible option is to use the Basler SLP Controller. In this case, users can select the best suitable lighting, which is controlled through the controller and is physically connected to the camera, therefore enabling the communication via the SLP feature. The solution is suitable for users with lighting experience who have applications with specific lighting requirements.

 

The upcoming easy solution is to add lighting to a vision system by using a Basler ace U or L camera with SLP feature and a Basler Camera Light with an integrated controller. This solution is a combination of camera and light, where the light is controlled directly from the camera. The approach is suitable for users with less complicated applications who want to achieve results quickly.

 

In both setup scenarios, the Basler pylon Camera Software Suite supports easy integration, installation and operation as it is the only software interface for both camera and light in the system. The matched components - Basler cameras with SLP feature, the Basler SLP Controller and the Basler Camera Light series - allow an easy setup via plug and play.
