LumiBlaze™

LED Illumination for Machine Vision with Superior Brightness and Uniformity.

Versatile LED Projector for Industrial Flood Source Illumination and Structured Lighting

Many industrial lighting applications benefit from intense and highly uniform illumination. Results from inspection, surface defect detection, and multi- or hyperspectral imaging improve significantly with the performance of the flood source used. Innovations in Optics’ LED Projector LumiBlaze™ is a superior Machine Vision lighting solution if you need a field of excellent uniformity and high brightness suitable for vast, well-lit areas, including outdoor locations.

The LumiBlazeR™ shares the same technology platform as the LED flood source LumiBlaze™ and accepts precision reticles (standard and customized) to structure the projected light. Intense and well-defined light patterns enhance 3D metrology applications for precision shape, volume, and depth measurement. The same goes for reliable object identification or pick & place operations in vision-guided robotics or gesture recognition in biometrics.

LumiBlaze™ LED Projector Overview

LED Projector

With the available selection of 1″ C-Mount lenses, you may adapt both the LumiBlaze™ and the LumiBlazeR™ to almost any industrial lighting scenario. Get anything covered within a working distance from 200 mm and an illumination field size of 100 X 100 mm to a distance of 10,000 mm and an area of 3,000 X 3,000 mm. Multiple operation modes (CW, PWM, and pulsed) allow precise irradiance adjustment.

Easily integrate the LumiBlaze™ or LumiBlazeR™ into your working environment using your own controller hardware or opt for Innovations in Optics’ low-footprint LED drivers providing TTL or RS-485 connectivity.

LED Pattern Projector LumiBlazeR™: Standard Reticle Patterns

Standard Precision Reticles

An accurate lithography process generates LumiBlazeR™’s reticles with a critical dimension of 70 microns, resulting in thinner lines, sharper edges, and more homogeneous illumination. These precision reticles are interchangeable and fill the field of 1″ format C-mount camera lenses. You may choose from seven separately available standard projection patterns or ask us for a customized reticle designed according to your specifications.
