When and how to use dome lights

dome lights and how to adopt them

Dome lights are dome-shaped LED lights in which LEDs are arranged along a ring and shine into a dome.

With the light diffusely reflected from the dome, a particularly uniform illumination of the object can be achieved.

The dome light provides indirect light at all angles of incidence. This results in uniform illumination, even of test objects with complex shapes.

Application example: reliable quality control, even of difficult test objects. Image, text, or color determination. Inspection of shiny, curved, or uneven surfaces such as printed circuit boards.
