Gardasoft introduces entry-level LED strobe controllers
13 May 2014
Both the Gardasoft RC120 and the RC100 controller allow the single channel control of LED illuminations in machine vision applications and operate in either continuous or strobe modes. In continuous mode a highly stable and accurate constant current of up to 1.2A is provided, and in pulse mode high current pulsing to 2A is possible.
The RC100 is designed for continuous and strobe mode for 1A. The units have a maximum power rating of 25W. Whilst the RC120 model can be parameterised via Ethernet, the RC100 controller operates with push buttons.
Patented SafePower and SafeSense technology
Both strobe controllers feature Gardasoft’s SafePower and SafeSense patented technology. SafeSense automatically prevents LEDs overheating and being damaged in the event of overdriving. SafePower technology adjusts the output voltage to the lighting system separately from the input voltage, which reduces power loss and therefore the heat generated by the controller.
