MetaWhite ExoLight LEDs
23 March 2011
Stemmer Imaging has introduced the MetaWhite ExoLight range of LEDs as an alternative to fluorescent lighting for machine vision. The LED technology and advanced optics create an extremely even and diffused cool white illumination. This makes them ideally suited for low cost machine vision lighting including robot-mounted applications.
Available in 8, 14, 24 and 48-inch lengths, the ExoLight range of LEDs can be used as direct replacements for traditional fluorescent light fittings. They are available in a number of wavelength ranges covering white, red, green, blue, amber, RGB, UV and IR. They feature anisotropic plastic micro-lens diffusers to create a highly diffused light from multiple point source emitters.
The resultant output mimics that of fluorescent emitters, but with more power and a greater stability, combined with the high LED lifetime and a low cost of ownership. These light sources provide intense, yet well-spread area illumination.
With no glass or mercury content and no EMI and RFI, these lights are environmentally friendly. Fully CE rated and maintenance free, ExoLights have a typical lifetime up to 100,000 hours.
