DM2 series – Flat Dome / Ring LED illuminators for machine vision applications
LED Illuminators for direct lighting ( Ring Light ) or with glass diffuser to create diffuse lighting ( Dome Light ).
Versatile : The new DM2 series by RODER is equipped with glass diffusers for creating a dome of light within the camera’s field of view. Additionally, the illuminator can be used as a ring light for illuminating direct components. The dome light is ideal for maximising the field of view and minimising any shadows in the camera’s view. The flexibility and functionality of this series make it a valuable choice for different industrial applications, making the DM2 series the perfect illuminator for those wanting the ideal lighting solution.
High performance : The series uses state-of-the-art LED technology with an array of lenses that provide different focal lengths and wavelengths. These LED lights can emit a high degree of brightness, making sure that the illumination is perfect for the precise acquisition of images in the industrial setting. The illuminator’s versatility allows it to be used in various industrial applications such as barcode reading, quality control, material inspection, ROBOT guide and more.
Industrial design : The illuminator is built with an industrial-grade aluminum frame that features a central hole for mounting the camera, making it a reliable and sturdy choice for vision systems and industrial automation. Additionally, the illuminator’s aluminium frame boasts of an excellent heat dissipation system that ensures optimal functioning even in high temperatures.
Designed for industrial automation
The use of flat dome illuminators in artificial vision systems is a growing trend in the field of robotics. These innovative LED illuminators offer an evenly distributed source of light that enhances the performance of vision systems, enabling them to function efficiently even in challenging lighting conditions.
The benefits of incorporating this technology into robot guides cannot be overstated, as it ensures they can quickly and accurately respond to their environments. Additionally, flat dome illuminators reduce the presence of shadows, enhancing the accuracy of image recognition. Their ability to eliminate glare and achieve diffuse illumination has made them a staple in many industries, including automotive and pharmaceuticals. As such, it comes as no surprise that more companies are turning to flat dome illuminators to enhance their artificial vision systems.
