Gardasoft (booth 8910) will be launching a new generation of dual channel, high power lighting controllers. The FP200 series of controllers combines capabilities for high frequency, high power LED pulsing with low output current performance.

Other products on show will include a controller for OLED panel illumination, embedded solutions for lighting and liquid lens control, and a multichannel lighting controller illustrating computational imaging.

The FP200 series has trigger frequencies up to 10kHz for high-speed pulsing applications such as line scan imaging. A maximum pulse current of 20A also makes the controllers suitable for high power, long pulse applications such as UV curing. In addition, the new controllers deliver accuracy and repeatability at sub-milliamp levels which is vital for applications that are very sensitive to lighting variation.

Integration into machine vision systems is made easy with standalone or Triniti–compatible versions available, allowing Gardasoft’s Triniti intelligent lighting platform to be used if required. Web-browser configuration makes set-up straightforward. With increased overdriving capabilities for high intensity short pulses, the FP200 series provide full LED protection through Gardasoft’s SafeSense technology. SafeSense also provides LED status information to aid system diagnostics. The units are further protected by SafePower, which provides automatic flexible operation with low heat dissipation.

Also on show will be: the CC320 trigger timing controller; a 16-channel PP1600 controller, which will be demonstrated sequentially driving a four-segment ring light from CCS for computational imaging; and the TR-CL series of lens controllers will be in action with Optotune electrically-tuneable lenses to demonstrate image focusing in less than 10 milliseconds.
