Home-security style LEDs might work in your garden, but when it comes to safety inspection checks on a product line, they just won’t cut it.

It looks fine to the naked eye, but when you’re capturing shots with a 1-millisecond exposure time, the variation in light quality (intensity and flicker) from these white lights, combined with interference from other ambient light sources, makes product identification far more difficult and raises your chances of false failures considerably.

Our solution

Machine vision lighting that’s brighter and gives out a constant light output – so no flickering – and with a monochromatic light – blue or red usually – combined with a bandpass filter to remove any other ambient light sources.

Lighting can make or break a vision inspection set up.
