Smart Vision Lights Product Solutions

Bar lights

Bar Lights, also known as Linear Array Lights, offer both bright field and dark field illumination, depending on angle of incidence with respect to the object of interest. Connect-a-Light Series of Linear Lights allow you to daisy-chain multiple lights together to increase overall length.

washdown lights

Smart Vision Lights washdown series features a 100% waterproof stainless-steel enclosure specially designed for the food industry and washdown environments where water and harsh detergents are present.


Backlighting provides an area of uniform illumination, oriented behind the object of interest, primarily for creating a part silhouette of instant contrast between dark and light. It is most useful for edge detection, part location/orientation or presence/absence, hole detection and object gauging.

ring lights

Dark field ring lights provide illumination that is projected at a shallow angle to the imaging surface, 45 degrees or less. Typical applications include reflective flat surface defect or edge detection. Bright field ring lights provide illumination directly onto an object, at angles of incidence above 45 degrees from horizontal, creating distinct shadows or general purpose illumination depending on subjects features.

dome lights

Smart Vision Lights dome lights provide diffuse lighting, also known as “cloudy-day illumination”. Reflected light provides non-directional, soft illumination that is free of shadowing. This effect is well suited for inspecting highly specular, and curved objects, but at close working distances.

spot lights

Spot or projector lights are typically characterized as general-purpose illuminators. They may be used to create both bright field and dark field effects, depending on the light angle of incidence.

line scan lights

The Line High-Power (LCHP) Series line scan lights project a fixed-focus line with clearly defined edges. The innovative design of the LCHP Series light allows this product to project a fixed focus line with clear define edges. The LHCP is passive with no fan and silently puts out 250,000 lux. Available in two length sizes, 300 mm and 600 mm.


wave lengths
llm controller

The LLM LED light manager can drive multiple lights of virtually any type or up to four individual zones or channels within an integrated photometric or multispectral ring light solution. Each program can contain up to six sequences with up to four lights set to continuous on, off, any intensity level in between, and even OverDrive™ strobe mode.

dadl controller

The DADL Controller easily tunes colors for the DADL75 to assist in fine-tuning colors. The DADL75 Series was designed as a multi-color inspection light. Its exceptional uniformity and an intense output design make the DADL75 Series a perfect lighting solution for applications that require variable intensities with multiple color options or any product inspection process involving a highly reflective finish.

4wmd controller

The 4WMD is a four-channel external driver developed for multi-wavelength lights. The 4WMD permits up to four individual wavelengths to be controlled independently of each other. This external driver includes Multi-Drive™, which allows a single channel to drive LEDs in continuous operation or OverDrive™ strobe mode separate from the other channels

4zmd controller

The 4ZMD is an external driver with four individual built-in channels, allowing control of up to four zones within a single light or four individual lights with no built-in drivers. Users can set different intensity levels for each zone channel because they act independently of each other. Also, depending on the channel’s configuration, intensity controls can adjust the intensity for either continuous operation or OverDrive™ strobe mode.


Smart Vision Lights has Diffuser kits available. A diffuser is used to homogenize lighting structure by distributing source light over a scattering/translucent area to produce an effective light-emitting surface. This is useful for illuminating shiny surfaces or large areas, where source direction and structure can pose a limitation for imaging systems. Smart Vision Lights’ standard diffusers are usable with all visible wavelengths.

polarizer filters

Polarizing filters are used to help to reduce specular reflections from shiny, nonmetal surfaces. Smart Vision Lights’ polarizer material has a typical transmission of about 40% while blocking about 60% of the light not in the plane of polarization. The polarizer is placed in front of the light and is available as an option with our visible wavelength lights.

bandpass filters

Bandpass filters allow you to control what your camera is seeing with greater contrast and a higher transmission for a reduced cost when compared to the conventional interference filter. Ideal for LED or laser diode application use. Common bandpass stock ranges from 25.5, 27, 30.5 and 46 mm.

intensity control

The IVP-C1 inline manual intensity control module offers the option to externally control the intensity of a light via the 270-degree potentiometer. The inline adapter comes with one male and one female 5-pin M12 connector. Cable length from end to end is approximately 2 meters. Din rail mountable. Compatible with continuous operation, OverDrive™ strobe mode and Multi-Drive™ lights.
