RM75 Series

Smart Vision Lights, a designer and manufacturer of high-brightness LED lights for industrial applications, introduces its smallest LED ring light ever — the RM75 Series.

The RM75 Mini Ring Light Series features Smart Vision Lights’ built-in driver: the Multi-Drive™, which combines continuous operation and OverDrive™ strobe (high-pulse operation) mode into one easy-to-use product. The Multi-Drive™ also protects the LEDs from premature degradation and failure caused by excessive heat by regulating the current delivered to the LEDs and limiting the duty cycle of the light.

The RM75 is available in multiple wavelengths to meet the user’s application requirements. The industry-standard 5-pin M12 connector makes for simple wiring (no need for external wiring to a driver), and the 1–10 V DC analog control line gives the user total control over intensity when running the light in constant operation. These powerful and compact ring lights rely on 72 high-output LEDs and offer over-current protection, as well as PNP and NPN strobe input.
