ColdVision Series For Machine Vision And Microscopy Illumination

Source: SCHOTT North America, Inc. - Lighting and Imaging

The ColdVision series from SCHOTT Lighting and Imaging is composed of an extensive array of light sources, fiber optic guides, and accessories designed to work seamlessly with each other for illumination purposes in machine vision and microscopy applications. 

CV-LS LED Light Source

The next-generation CV-LS LED light source features an improved design, upgraded high brightness LED light engines, and a cooling system. These features greatly increase light output beyond 150 W EJA halogen lamp levels for the cool white model. The improved internal design offers higher efficiency, ESD handling, and robust connectivity and controls. Initial available colors include cool white, warm white, and RGBW models.

MaVi-S Light Source

The MsVi-S light source is designed to emit brief, intense light pulses when coupled with ColdVision light guides resulting in bright, clear, and high-contrast images. These CE approved, ROHS compliant light sources are ideal for high speed applications requiring short flash times and adjustable delays, including wafer inspection, bottle inspection, matric code reading, and diamond quality control applications.

Gooseneck Fiber Optics

SCHOTT offers single, dual, and combination goosenecks and bundles typically used for obedient, incident illumination in space constrained applications. Single or dual goosenecks are constructed with chrome plated semi-obedient metal or black dekabon semi-rigid gooseneck tubing. Combination goosenecks and bundles feature sheathing made of PVC covered metal tubing, and the gooseneck is made of semi-obedient, chrome-plated metal gooseneck tubing.

Fiber Optic Lightguides

SCHOTT delivers light guides in single, dual, quad, quad-randomized, and calibrated bundles to give users versatility when routing and positioning light. Standard, modified standard, and custom configurations are available for each type of bundle. Click here for more information. Download the available datasheet here.

Fiber Optic Ringlights

The SCHOTT ColdVision fiber optic ringlights are created to emit intense, uniform, and shadow-free illumination for microscopy and machine vision applications. Available ringlights include a universal ringlight that fits microscope and camera objectives from 33 – 81 mm, and other model sizes ranging from 19 mm to 8 inches with working illumination distances up to 8 inches.

Lightlines and Lenses

SCHOTT offers lightlines and lenses with uniform lines of light for machine vision and line scan applications achieving higher uniformity than any LED due to position density. Click here for more information. Download the available datasheet here.

Backlights

The patented SCHOTT backlights are calibrated to provide even, bright illumination throughout microscopy and machine vision applications such as glass inspection, edge detection, photography, and instrumentation display. The PANELite® backlights can be manufactured with different active areas, placement of outputs, and mounting hole locations, so all models are made-to-order. Click here for more information.
