Share Article

Vision Systems Design has recognized Smart Vision Lights once again for product innovation with its gold award during its Innovators Award event during Automate 2017 in Chicago for its LM Series of mini-LED machine vision lights with Multi-Drive ™ Dual-Mode Internal Drive.

Smart Vision Lights, a leading designer and manufacturer of high-brightness LED lights for industrial applications, is proud to announce that its LM Series of Mini LED Machine Vision Lights with Multi-Drive ™ Dual-Mode Internal Drive received the gold award for product innovation from Vision Systems Design magazine’s Innovators Awards program during the Automate conference in Chicago.

The judging panel consisted of esteemed experts from system integrator and end-user companies.
Size and power contributed to the decision to bestow Smart Vision Lights’ LM45 and LM75 Series with a gold-level award, as well as the products’ unique built-in MultiDrive™ feature, which allows users to employ continuous operation or OverDrive™ strobe mode depending on wiring method.

“Our ‘mini lini’ lights have become the go-to LEDs for machine vision experts who need compact yet powerful illumination,” says Dave Spaulding, president of Smart Vision Lights. “These versatile linear lights deliver at least five times the power and intensity of similar size lights currently on the market. I couldn’t be more proud of our innovative team that just keeps designing one award-winning product after another. These lights are just another example of our dedication and commitment to being the leaders in innovation for the machine vision industry.”

The industry-standard 5-pin M12 quick-disconnect cable makes for simple wiring. Each series also features overcurrent protection, PNP and NPN strobe input, and continuous operation or strobe mode. With housing just 51 mm long, the LM45 puts out unprecedented levels of light in one of the industry’s smallest footprints. Standard wavelength colors are white, 470 nm blue, 530 nm green, 625 nm red, and 850 nm IR. Additional wavelengths are available upon request.

Multiple lensing options give this light a broad spectrum of illumination area, while the 0–10 V analog control offers total command over intensity. The mini linear lights come standard with a narrow lens, although wide and line lenses are available. The LM45 includes four high-output LEDs, compared to the LM75’s eight LEDs. The lights can be mounted via a rear T-SLOT channel and specially designed mounting hardware is also available.
