LED illumination is popular for machine vision applications because it produces a high light intensity at a relatively low cost with a long service life (typically 100,000 hours). Firstsight Vision offers a comprehensive range of LED illumination sources at competitive prices to industrial and scientific OEMs, system integrators and resellers. This includes the renowned range of LED sources from CCS Inc.
The LDR2/SQR series of LEDs from CCS have a high-intensity light output that creates crisp, vivid images with a choice of heat dissipation characteristics and cost. With favourable exchange rates and lower-cost options, there has never been a better time to buy this premium LED brand.
LDR2 series high-density LED arrays are arranged in an umbrella configuration that creates an extremely bright concentration of light at the centre of the illumination area. They use a special heat-dissipating enclosure for harsh environments and heat-sensitive applications. This prevents the heat from building up in the LEDs and increases both the life expectancy and the uniformity of the unit.
The SQR is a compact, low-cost version of the popular LDR2 series, suited to applications where heat dissipation is less critical. In this case the LEDs are mounted on a flat base.
