LED strobe controllers: precise imaging of fast-moving objects

Scorpion Vision Ltdvisit website


Scorpion Vision is adding an advanced new line of strobe controllers from Smartek to their range of industrial imaging products. Innovatively designed by Smartek, the series of products known as LED Strobe Controllers, are able to capture high-definition images of fast-moving objects. The products achieve this through ultra-short, bright LED flashes which are synchronised to the camera image capture with quick exposure times. Thanks to the high-power and short fast flashes, illumination intensity is significantly increased but also results in reduced thermal effects for the LEDs. This allows LED illumination devices to be safely exploited to perform well beyond their standard mode of operation.

Alongside these features the series also has a socket for Ethernet access to the controller settings which allows for the device to be controlled through a simple graphical interface which can be accessed through a standard internet browser. Alternatively, the controller settings can be accessed via a C++ based API with easy integration into any software application.

Paul Wilson of Scorpion Vision comments: “The outstanding high performance level of the LED Strobe Controllers series makes these devices perfect for high-speed production lines, guaranteeing quality assurance. Having been used by a multitude of manufacturers from German luxury car production to print inspection of tokens, the controllers are fast becoming highly regarded across the industry.”

Scorpion Vision are one of the select UK distributors of LED Strobe Controllers from Smartek. For more information and to purchase, visit
