Illumination is crucial in the design of any vision system. The lighting you select affects the quality of your captured image, not to mention the quality of its subsequent analysis, especially when the object you need to illuminate includes complex shapes or very reflective surfaces.  Moreover, when you use the correct illumination, you will need to use fewer filters and your processing speed will consequently increase.

When selecting your illumination you should take into account the type of application, the characteristics of the object you are illuminating, the area that needs to be illuminated and the conditions in the area.

1Vision can help you select the right illumination for your specific application and needs!

Here are several issues you should think about when selecting illumination for your project:

  • Monochrome or color application?
  • The speed in which the object is moving – maybe need a rephrase
  • The size of the area which you are illuminating
  • Characteristics of the illuminated object - geometry, structure, surfaces, reflectivity, color, is there a specific element that needs to be highlighted, etc.
  • Background characteristics – color, geometry, etc.
  • Required lighting system lifetime
  • Mechanical /environmental considerations

Back Light

Backlighting is one of the most popular forms of vision inspection illumination, where the lighting source is placed behind the target, providing maximum contrast between object and scene and producing a high contrast image with consistent edge definition.1Vision backlights combine the latest high brightness LEDs with exclusive optical lensing to create high intensity and uniform, shadow-free illumination.

Low Angle, Dark field

Low Angle, Dark field illuminations are designed to illuminate 360° from a low angle (45° or less). The camera will not collect the majority of the light reflected from the surface, but only the scattered light that is reflected from a defect on the surface.
Low Angle, Dark field illuminations are mainly used for detecting scratches and stains, reading laser engraving, edge detection, defect inspection.
1Vision provides a wide variety of Low Angle, Dark field illuminations.

Bar linear

Bar linear illuminations are designed to allow both bright and dark field illumination, depending on the chosen angle. Bar linear has high-intensity luminance LEDs and it is arranged in a bar configuration. Bar linear illuminations are available in varying lengths, and therefore are suitable for both larger and smaller areas. Bar linear illuminations can be used for defect inspection on fabric or metal substrates, size measurements for electronic parts or shapes identifications.
Let us help you find the Bar linear illuminations that best suits your needs!

Shadowless Square

Shadowless Square illumination is the best choice to inspect rectangular objects. Shadowless illumination can evenly diffuse lighting on glossy or metal objects, and it is most useful for preventing the halo effect. Shadowless illumination is mainly used for visual inspection of wafers, solder & connector pitch inspection, and more.

Diffused Axial Light

Diffused Axial lights are particularly useful to produce even lighting on uneven or reflective surfaces, and in situations where the area of inspection is obscured by shadows from its surroundings. Diffused Axial lights use beam-splitter technology to reflect the diffused light onto a wide field of view. Diffused Axial Lights are mainly used in surfaces such as wafers, metal surfaces, film, liquid crystals, and glass.

Diffused Dome

Diffused Dome illuminators are particularly useful to produce intense and uniform lighting on large evenly areas. 

Find More

Diffused Tube

Diffuse Dome Lights are ideal for inspection of reflective, specular, rough, or topographic surfaces. Dome shaped illumination features high intensity and uniformity and thus provides an even and homogeneous illumination of the object. It is used to light complex reflective shapes, specular, rough, or topographic surfaces.

Flat Dome Light

Flat dome lights produce uniformly diffused light by using full array LED's with a diffuser. Flat dome lights are perfect for applications with limited space and achieve a performance that is almost up to the standards of traditional dome lights. Flat dome lights can be used for any application requiring an even, shadow-less, diffuse illumination of curved uneven surfaces.
