MINNEAPOLIS — Nov. 16, 2010 — Banner Engineering Corp. introduces IEC IP67-rated LED Sealed Backlights with increased brightness to its selection of high-quality vision lighting. The sealed backlights are designed to work with any machine vision system and are available in four different sizes, ranging from 75 x 150mm to 300 x 150mm. With their smooth, IP67-rated housing, the backlights are easily cleaned and cannot hold harmful contamination, which makes them an ideal solution for harsh environments such as the food and beverage industry where clean, waterproof, and non-corrosive are essential qualities.
"By sealing the LED backlights in a rugged, non-corrosive waterproof housing, we have made them even more versatile because they can be used for applications in environments where they were not a practical solution, previously," said Banner Engineering Product Development Manager, Chuck Dolezalek. "We feel that these new sealed LED backlights are not only competitively priced, but that their features and performance are as good, if not better than other brands out there."
Backlights are made to emit an even pattern of light so that when placed behind the designated target and aimed directly back towards the camera, the resulting silhouette can be inspected for proper size and shape. The new sealed backlights from Banner operate as a solid-state LED matrix that provides extremely bright light with evenly spread intensity from edge to edge, resulting in greater accuracy when precision gauging is necessary. Some common applications where the IP67 sealed LED backlight is used in conjunction with a vision sensor include stamped metal inspection, meat shape profiling, and bottle fill inspection.
The IP67-rated sealed backlights from Banner are available in four visible colors (red, green, blue, and white), plus infrared, and can be operated in either continuous or strobe mode via their sensor software. The backlights are easily mounted either directly from the back or as a surface mount, and two stainless steel brackets are included along with the corresponding hardware.
Key features of the Sealed LED Backlights:
* Rugged, waterproof housing, rated IEC IP67
* Extremely bright light
* Smooth exterior for easy cleaning
* Extremely even intensity from edge-to-edge
* M12 connector
