Gardasoft VCT

OEM LED traffic strobe lights for mobile and fixed ANPR applications

Gardasoft VCT LED strobe lights provide OEMs with a very powerful illuminator and flashlight source for intelligent traffic applications such as automatic number plate recognition (ANPR), red light violation, open road tolling and weigh-in motion systems.

Utilising the latest high power LED technology available, the VCT series is available in both board-only and housed versions and is fully integrated with internal timing, intensity control, trigger input and long distance communications.

Reasons to select the Gardasoft VCT

High power

The VCT features up to 500 W LED pulse drive power for high speed application and increased illumination distances.

Fast strobe capability

A fast repetition rate up to 10 kHz allows for capture of a sequence of images at high speed and at different exposure times to obtain the perfect take. The maximum pulse width is 2 ms, maximum duty cycle equals 3%, both at 100% power.

Designed for mobile use

Gardasoft developed the VCT particularly for mobile applications. The input power specification of 12-24V has been developed for this use case.

Attractive built-in features

The lights already integrate features relevant for traffic monitoring applications, like internal timing, intensity control, trigger input and long distance communications for synchronisation with the camera.

Housing options

The VCT illuminations are available in an IP65 rated enclosure or as a PCB version for OEM applications.
