SPECIALTY LIGHTING

Collimated Backlight Series

The Collimated Backlight Series is a high performance, uniform, and collimated light source for high precision silhouetting and transmissive applications.  Using precision optics, the light is collimated in both the X and Y dimensions.  The light exits at a low divergence angle making it perfect for applications requiring high precision measurements when used with a telecentric lens.  Using a full array LED layout with more LEDs per square inch to provide greater intensity and uniformity.  The Collimated Backlight Series is available with a wide variety of LED colors: White, Red, Green, Blue, IR, and RGB with independent color control.  Active areas ranging from 1 inch x 1 inch (25 mm x 25mm) to 12 inches x 12 inches (305 mm x 305 mm).   Custom sizes up to 3 feet x 3 feet (1 m x 1 m) are available.


Features:

  • High density LED array makes our backlights the brightest and most stable backlights
  • Exclusive optical lens provides high uniformity (±5% to ±10%), shadow-free backlight illumination
  • Patent pending thermal management design draws heat directly from the die ensuring long life
  • Metaphase Technologies has the largest selection of Backlights in the vision industry.
  • Options include 0 -10VDC intensity control (-Z option),
  • Can be operated in either DC mode or in strobe operating using your preferred controller/driver

Applications:

  • High precision measurements and telecentric applications
  • Absence/presence of objects
  • Defect detection in glass/plastic containers
  • Object tracking (fish in aquarium)
  • PCB (printed circuit board) assembly through-hole lead detection
  • Web inspection (pin-holes in web)
  • Bottle cap inspection
  • Bolt/bolt thread inspection
  • Glass sheet defect detection
  • Sub-pixel dimensional inspection
