Off-Axis Ring Lights provide a low angle plane of light which is useful for highlighting surface defects, illuminating specular surfaces, and side-lighting prominent target features. Dark field illumination provides high contrast lighting for detecting stress, defects, fingerprints, edges, dust etc. When the dark field light is placed above an object, intense light will appear at the edges and imperfections will be accentuated in a high-contrast manner.
The Metaphase Washdown Off-Axis Ring light (OARL) takes our proven Off-Axis ring light and puts it into a washdown and harsh environment configuration. Our washdown OARL can now be used where they may be exposed to water, moisture, and debris. With this watertight gasket design, high-pressure jets and wash downs are no problem; great for food, drug, or outdoor applications. The off-axis ring light (dark field) provides a near horizontal plane of light which is useful for highlighting surface defects, illuminating specular surfaces, and side lighting prominent target features. Our ring lights can be configured for wavelength and other specifications.
