High-Speed Strobe Lights for Machine Vision

Designed with the ability to store electrical energy so as to pulse LEDs, the XR series of LED lights from Smart Vision Lights are high-speed strobe lights which are capable of generating as many as 5000 Strobes Per Second (SPS). The XR256 has a pulsed LED energy of 2000 watts when the LEDs are active.

The XR256 light pulses the LEDs with up to 180 amps of DC current. Operating at nearly 2000 watts, the XR256 light has 256 mm² area of LED die. This compares positively with a typical LED light for machine vision, which averages 3-12 mm² area of LED die running at between 3 and 12 watts.

The temperature monitor of the XR series lights is designed to shut down the LED’s die when it reaches a hazardous temperature. Subsequent to this shutdown, there is a period of rest for the LED die until a safe temperature is once again attained.

The increase in heat of the LED die is reliant on the LED strobe time or duration, as well as the SPS. Longer strobe times or a high SPS increase the die temperatures. The operation of the LEDs is safely limited by the XR series ability to track the duty cycle. LEDs are not allowed to operate at a duty cycle which is risky.
