Image Experts
for the Factory Floor
At Advanced illumination (Ai), we understand
just how difficult it can be to choose the correct
light source in order to acquire the best image
for your applications. We built our business
by focusing on the factory floor. Our mission
is to make your challenges our challenges
by providing complete service and support
of tested and proven light sources using
dependable solid state technology. Our vision is
to become the trusted lighting source for factory
automation professionals by partnering with the
world’s leading integrators, distributors, and
developers of machine vision technology.
Advanced Lighting Technology
To help our customers implement a robust lighting
solution, we developed the Flexible Response
Product System utilizing Evenlite technology and our
Expandable Lighting products. The best lighting
solution will increase the accuracy of your inspection
and allow the camera to process clear digital
images with speed and dexterity.
Advanced Control
Each Ai light is built with an internal electronic signature. Upon connection
to a microprocessor-based SignaTech controller, the light signature is read
and the controller automatically configures itself to output the optimum
current level for a given pulse width. The SignaTech control system also
applies to steady state, DC operation for those applications that do not
require strobing.
Advanced Flexibility
Ai’s Flexible Response Product System combines our best technological
innovations: Flexibility begins with Standard Variations - standard product
housings built with end-user choice of LED wavelength, power input,
stand-off, working distance, and mounting options, built within two
weeks. If a standard housing does not suit the application, our Expandable
Lighting System offers standard lighting technology in sizes to match your
needs. Evenlite technology allows structured lighting effects to be developed far more easily than in
the past. And finally, Signatech and Signatech II control systems round out the Flexible Response Product
System by maximizing interchangability between lighting and control components without compromising
performance.

Evenlite is Ai’s patented core LED aiming technology, enabling us to put light
exactly where it is needed. Our proprietary targeting process provides the
foundation for an extremely functional, consistent array of machine vision
lights.
Customized Lights
in 2 Weeks!
The LED manufacturing process
often results in LEDs with diverging

mechanical and optical axes.
Unaimed LEDs
Evenlite
We aim every LED based on its
optical axis, and by doing so overcome the uneven illumination found in other
LED light sources. By aiming, we use fewer LEDs than competing products,
resulting in lower operating temperatures. Under normal circumstances our
products do not need cooling fans or heat sinking.
Our patented LED aiming process
allows us to “soft customize”
a light in two weeks or less.
Customizable variables include
working distance, field of view,
wavelength, lensing, mounting,
and powering options. Ai offers
literally thousands of standard
variations, built specifically to
meet your needs.
E v e n l i t e II

The newest aiming technology from Ai is Evenlite II, used to maximize the
output of high current LEDs. This new process allows us to create consistent
illumination from greater distances and over larger areas than was previously
possible with standard LEDs.

Ai is the only LED machine vision
lighting manufacturer building
RGB lightheads. Combining
red, green & blue LEDs makes a
bright white that is color tunable
for maximum image contrast.
RGB lights have much longer
lifespans than the white LEDs
currently available .

S i g n a t e c h

Ai’s microprocessor based Signatech
electronics verify the electronic
signature of a light head and
automatically adjust the maximum
current output accordingly. This
feature optimizes light output and LED
life. New Signatech II expands the
original capabilities for large arrays
and high current LEDs.
Turbo-Charging
Increasing light intensity and
extending LED life, TurboCharging is the process of
precisely synchronizing high
bursts of current, at a safe dutycycle, through our lights during
camera integration time.
Turbo-charging maximizes
the amount of information
the camera receives in the
shortest time possible.
CS410 and CS420 controllers provide dual independent intensity control
(0-100%).
MS220 and CS420 offer convenient onboard touchpad control.
Constant Current Controllers - CS100 & CS300
Single or dual output current regulation. Optional intensity control.
Pulsar 710
The newest Ai strobe controller offers high intensity output for large lighting arrays and
high current LEDs. With a number of features designed to maximize the output of a
wide range of lights, the new Pulsar provides:
A stunning 100 amps at 100 volts total output in pulsed mode
Multiple units that can be daisy chained from a single trigger source
8 amps at 24 volts in constant mode
Four-channel outputs

Vision Lighting Basics
The first step in designing and implementing a successful automated inspection process is selecting
the proper illumination.
Lighting is the most cost effective and versatile element to consider when attempting to solve
an application. More importantly, good lighting is required because a vision system, unable to
differentiate subtle differences in appearance, needs consistent contrast levels to provide reliable
results. (A general rule of thumb is that the vision system requires a minimum 20% contrast in order
to perform effectively.) Even the best software depends on high quality data in order to perform
efficiently; results are less dependable when the software is required to compensate for missing or
potentially inaccurate information.
The goal of selecting illumination is to create a consistent, robust environment in which to perform
inspections.
Common Lighting Techniques
Direct Light: Light is aimed
directly at an object,
often creating distinct
shadows. This type of
lighting is effective when
used on objects requiring
high contrast, but creates
specular reflections when
used with shiny or reflective
materials.
Dark Field: Light is
projected at an angle
to the surface, causing
any variations to deflect
light up into the camera,
creating bright spots on
a dark background or
field. Nothing is seen by
the vision system if there
are no aberrations on the
surface.
Diffuse Light: Reflected
light, providing a nondirectional, soft light free of
harsh shadows that is well
suited for highly specular
objects. This illumination
effect has been likened
to the type of flat, nondirectional light found on
an overcast day.
Backlighting: An even
field of illumination is
projected from behind
an object. The object is
seen as a silhouette by
the camera. Backlighting
is most commonly used
for taking measurements
or determining orientation
of parts.
Each light type has a specific purpose, but is also adaptable for a range of applications not immediately related
to its function. (For example, a spotlight, which provides direct light, can be placed at an angle to create a dark
field effect.) For some applications, the best results are achieved by combining multiple light types.
Modifying Light
After selecting the light type, a number of techniques can be
employed to optimize inspection results:
Color
The best light color for an inspection depends on two elements,
the color of the object being inspected, and the sensitivity of
the CCD.
Color CCDs generally require a white illumination source though not always - while a black and white inspection can
be enhanced by experimenting with various colors to increase
contrast. The color wheel to the right is a useful tool in determining
color choice.
Co-Axial Illumination: A
variation of diffuse light
in which a perpendicular
wall of light is aimed at an
angled beam splitter that
reflects the light down.
The object is viewed from
above through the beam
splitter. This light type is
particularly helpful on
highly reflective objects
or in situations where
the area of inspection is
obscured by shadows from
it’s surroundings.
Cool
Warm
Violet
Blue
Green
Red
Orange
Yellow
The Color Wheel
Rule of thumb: The highest degree of contrast is achieved when using
opposing colors on the color wheel. “Cool” colors darken “warm”
colors and lighten other “cool” colors.
The apples to the right illustrate
how different colors react in
a black and white inspection.
Changing the light color can
greatly enhance the contrast.
802.767.3830
21
RGB
Using an “all color” RGB - red, green, blue light - offers several advantages over a standard monochrome or white spectrum light.
When coupled with our MS210/220 multi-channel controller, an RGB light head can produce the entire visible spectrum of colors
by independently adjusting the R, G, or B intensity values. This feature allows the operator to modify contrast based on relative
color absorption versus reflection. Additionally, when all three channels are set to equal intensities, the light head produces a
white light that is approximately 2x the intensity of current white LED light offerings.
Filters
The ability to control what the vision system sees determines the efficiency of an inspection. Eliminating unnecessary data or noise
increases the speed at which information can be processed and limits the potential for false readings. One simple technique
for restricting the light that reaches the CCD is the use of filters. There are several common, available filters including polarizing,
band pass, and cut off.
Polarized Lighting: Polarizing filters provide an
adjustable option for decreasing glare in an
inspection. A two part process, the light is projected
through a polarizing filter and then seen by the
camera through an “analyzer.” Adjusting the
orientation of the analyzer allows the viewer to
modify the orientation of the light collected by the
camera.
Band Pass Filters allow only a narrow range of wavelengths through to the camera. In settings where ambient light creates a
variable inspection environment, the band pass filter removes all but a specific range of light, eliminating the need for a shroud
around an inspection area.
Cut Off Filters - also known as Short Pass or
Long Pass - prevent light above or below a
specific wavelength from being visible to the
camera.
Light Wavelength and CCD Sensitivity
Light efficiency is partly determined by the sensitivity
of the CCD to specific wavelengths. A CCD with peak
reception between 620 - 700 nm will register more
output from a 660nm (red) light than from a 470nm
(blue) light source.
Infra-red (IR) is often overlooked as an illumination option.
Invisible to the human eye, IR is useful for inspections
in settings where a bright or flashing light might be
distracting to workers. IR can be used to neutralize color
differences, and has greater penetrating power, which
is especially useful in plastics inspections.
