The Collimated Medium CMBACK+ is a powerful and very diffuse backlight, dedicated to many machine vision applications. With high powerful LED and specific lenses, it creates a very intense illumination, that helps cameras to clearly see workpieces shapes.
The Collimated Medium CMBACK+ is also manufactured with filters, which eliminate the non-perpendicular light (>30° compared to the vertical axis of the lighting surface). This semi-collimation helps to get highly contrasted images. This is why this product is recommended for the edge detection of round or thick workpieces, and also for the detection of markings or material defects on transparent workpieces (made of glass or plastic).
The CMBACK + is equipped with a strobe entry and a potentiometer, which enables to vary the lighting power. The OVERDRIVE version can also offer a far higher lighting power.
Either in continuous or in strobe mode, it has short rising and falling times: 25 μs and 15 μs. Thanks to its thin edges, the Collimated Medium CMBACK+ uniformly illuminates the whole surface analysed. Moreover, the connector can be placed on any side of the light, making it easy to set it up on any kind of conveyor belts. In the base of the connector, 2 LED show if the product is powered and if the strobe mode is on. The Collimated Medium CMBACK+ is available in various wavelengths and also in various dimensions.
OVERDRIVE UP TO X3 WITH CURRENT CONTROL INSIDE
The OVERDRIVE version is as easy to set up and to use as the STANDARD version. Equipped with dedicated electronics, it gives the opportunity for users to overdrive the lighting power on their own. The OVERDRIVE version is dedicated to specialists who want to calibrate very precisely the light intensity in order to get the most reliable results.
