Yes, you read it right, even your lighting can have a level of intelligence. The options make integrating and using them so much easier. It's definitely worth looking into intelligent lighting if you get involved in designing, integrating, or using machine vision illumination.
As always, we like to deliver these nuggets of information in bite sized chunks, so here's the first of three ... In this part we'll be covering the basics of simply plugging in a light (and why you really want to avoid doing that), pulsing, over driving and illumination with integrated drivers
The second part of our popular intelligent lighting series is here! In this part, we introduce lighting controllers and explain how they can help you deliver even the most complicated machine vision system.
Did you know that lighting controllers can even adjust the intensity of your illumination and compensate for the drop in lighting intensity when the LED's age? Find out how in intelligent lighting - part 2 where we cover the benefits of using a lighting controller (including how you can use them to safely overdrive your lights).
We’ve reached the highest level of intelligence in the third part of our series, where lights meet Industry 4.0 and the internet of things.
With the constant developments in Machine vision systems, it’s important to be able to seamlessly connect to and interact with your lighting systems. Not just to ensure they constantly operate at their optimum levels, but to make sure they can instantly adapt to any changes to the operations upstream / downstream, or even inline with it.
The Triniti system from Gardasoft helps your lighting stay completely connected and synchronised to your machine vision solution and the infrastructure that operates around it.
