New and Unique: Basler Launches Intelligent Lighting Solutions
In cooperation with CCS, the world's leading manufacturer of LED lighting for Machine Vision applications, we have developed a comprehensive portfolio of various lighting components. Unique in the market, the new lighting concepts are designed for Basler ace U and L cameras that are equipped with the Basler SLP feature. This feature enables direct communication between camera and light source. This significantly reduces the complexity of a vision system and lets any user integrate lighting easily early on, thus shortening the time spent on design and installation. We offer two options depending on your needs:
Flexible and universal: Basler SLP Controller
The flexible approach consists of a Basler ace U or L camera with SLP feature and the Basler SLP Controller that can be used with the best suitable lighting source. The lighting is operated with the controller, which has a direct physical connection with the camera and communicates with it through the SLP feature. This option is a good choice for users who have more experience with lighting and have applications with specific lighting requirements.
Easy and fast: Basler Camera Light series
This easy lighting approach consists of a Basler ace U or L camera with Basler SLP feature and the Basler Camera Light with integrated controller that is operated directly from the camera. This approach is suitable for users with less complicated applications who want to achieve results quickly.
Your benefits from both lighting options at a glance:
- High savings potential in material costs and valuable time in the entire process from acquisition to installation
- Perfect interaction of Basler camera with SLP feature and lighting
- Simple integration with just one software interface
- Plug-and-play thanks to perfectly harmonized components
- Easy strobing and overdrive increase luminous efficacy and life time of LED lights
The Basler pylon Camera Software Suite supports the simple integration, installation and operation of both lighting approaches, since it is the only software interface for both camera and light. The perfectly harmonized components ensure high ease of use and an easy setup via plug-and-play. Additionally, easily accessible lighting functions like strobing and overdrive can significantly increase the luminous efficacy and the life time of the LED lights used. In the total package, both solutions offer high savings potential in material costs and valuable time in the entire process from acquisition to installation.
