Smart Vision Lights Introduces JWL150 External Light as Part of New Camera-to-Light Series

MC Smart Vision Lights Introduces JWL 150 External Light 1 400x275

October 18, 2022

 

Smart Vision Lights (SVL), a global leader in the design and manufacture of innovative LED illumination solutions, announces the release of its JWL150, the first in the new Camera-to-Light (CTL) series. Unlike other external illumination products designed for machine vision cameras and smart cameras with built-in illumination that falls short, the JWL150 delivers an intense, compact light source with an integrated camera mount.

Compatible with most major machine vision cameras, the JWL150 can be directly connected and controlled through a camera’s trigger output. Systems integrators often deploy external bar lights or use built-in camera lights, but external lighting takes up valuable space and built-in lights often provide insufficient lighting. In machine vision systems that are tight on space, the JWL150 delivers an intense yet compact lighting option.

“In machine vision applications that require powerful, direct illumination in space-constrained environments, the JWL150 delivers long-distance, high-output light that can connect directly to most cameras on the market,” said Steve Kinney, director of training, compliance, and technical solutions at Smart Vision Lights.

The IP65-rated bright field light features a working distance of 500 mm up to 2000 mm; 10-, 14-, and 30-degree lens options; and built-in Multi-Drive™ technology, which offers both continuous operation and OverDrive™ mode. In continuous operation mode, the JWL150 can provide constant light or be triggered following the camera’s exposure signal. OverDrive™ mode delivers up to 6 times the continuous power with a low-latency response and fast strobe durations down to 10 mS. 

The JWL150 features a batwing design that illuminates a larger area than built-in lighting systems and produces a greater light output that easily combines with polarizers, diffusers, and other optical elements that reduce light output. The new JWL150 targets disparate machine vision applications, with a particular focus on high-speed conveyors that require bright illumination at long, stand-off distances.

Access Management for Your Plant and Machinery

With PILZ’s “Identification and Access Management” portfolio, they offer you a comprehensive range of products, solutions and software for the implementation of safety as well as security tasks. Below you’ll discover more about potential applications, from simple authentication to complex access permissions, and access management through to safe operating mode selection, maintenance safeguarding and safeguarding of data and networks. Experience safety and security in one system!

This solution ensures that a machine cannot resume operation while people are still in the danger zone. The maintenance safeguarding system “key-in-pocket” is designed for machines with danger zones, which are protected by a safety fence and which staff need to access – robot cells for example. In comparison with conventional lockout-tagout (LOTO) systems, maintenance safeguarding with the key-in-pocket solution is implemented via RFID keys with corresponding permissions and a safe list in the PILZ controllers. As a result, it provides a purely electronic restart protection and makes both mechanical interlocking devices and warning tags redundant.
