Bar Lights and When to Use Them
When and how to use bar lights
Bar lights produce a narrow strip of light useful for inspecting long, thin workpieces or highlighting the edges of an object.
Depending on the requirements, the specular reflections of an object ("specular highlights") can be intensified or attenuated with beam illumination. This is also referred to as a bright field or dark field configuration.
Application example: These very versatile lights can be used for many applications, including character recognition or quality inspection on long, thin workpieces.
