Gardasoft RT

Programmable LED lighting controllers

The RT-Series include the power regulation, intensity control, timing and triggering functions required for Machine Vision systems and utilise the patented SafeSense SafePower technologies.

The RT-Series offer 24 different models. You can choose between 2, 4 or 8 channels versions, standard or fast timing, high overdrive current up to 20 A or more precise current settings (1 mA) up to 2 A, and 3 different interfaces (push-button, RS-232 or Ethernet).



Reasons to choose the Gardasoft RT-Series

Patented SafeSense technology for a safe overdriving of LED Lights

Accurate overdriving is a major step forward in LED lighting control; equally it’s important to ensure that a too high duty cycle is not selected.

Gardasoft removes this potential. When a light is connected, the Safesense™ technology runs a very rapid routine that determines the actual rating of the light. SafeSense imposes safe working limits based on the pulse width and duty cycle for overdriving, thus providing full protection. In constant mode, the maximum output current allowed would be the maximum rating defined by SafeSense.

SafeSense works by using the following techniques:

  • Sensing when a light is connected
  • Finding the current rating of the light
  • Driving the light within safe limits
  • Detecting faults
Patented SafePower technology for reduced heat dissipation and less limitation in the choice of the power supply

SafePower adjusts the load voltage to the need of the LED automatically. Consequently the power lost is reduced to a minimum, a heatsink is not needed to dissipate overheat. As the load voltage can be higher than the supply voltage (as long as the total required power is available), an usual 24 V power supply can be used to supply the light even for overdriving mode. Reduced power loss for each channel allow to combine different lights with different modes without exceeding the maximum allowed power dissipation of the controller
