The new vicolux® DLC3005 digital lighting controller from Vision & Control sets the future standard for LED lighting in the company‘s machine vision systems. The new controller fully reflects Vision & Control’s strategy of enabling customers to experience “the easy way to machine vision”. Featuring simple operation and ease of integration, it ensures that LED lighting delivers stable lighting conditions and high operational reliability in industrial environments. The controller monitors all lighting operating states online, and when appropriately configured it guarantees dependable, fault-free operation of the lighting within the defined performance limits
Featuring an enormous performance density and housed in a rugged, compact aluminum enclosure measuring only 74 mm x 56 mm x 21 mm, the compact industrial-grade design of the digital lighting controller makes an immediate impression. A microprocessor monitors the lighting control function, ensuring stable lighting conditions with up to 95% efficiency. The universal digital inputs and industrial-grade standard connectors are compatible with SPS, NPN, PNP and TTL signals, making the controller easy to integrate into any system. All types of high-performance LED lighting can be operated with the controller in continuous or flash mode. Digital technology guarantees the reproducibility of the lighting settings. Rotary switches on the device are used to manually adjust the lighting parameters. In addition, lighting parameters can be software defined via the USB port and Web interface. Besides the two digital inputs, the controller also has two SPS-compatible digital outputs which can be used to poll the operating state and trigger cameras or lag-free switching operations. The vicolux DLC3005 digital lighting controller has an operating voltage range of 10V - 30V. Flash times of 20 µs - 300 ms can be configured with a maximum trigger frequency of 1 kHz.
The controller monitors all lighting operating states online, and when appropriately configured it guarantees dependable, fault-free operation of the lighting within the defined performance limits. The status indicators on the controller front panel provide information on the operating state. Two versions of the new DLC3005 are available, either for direct mounting in the system or for attachment to a mounting rail.
