Basler SLP Powered by CCS: The Right Lighting Solution for Basler Cameras
Basler's intelligent and easy-to-install lighting solutions are now available. They are designed to perfectly match the Basler ace U and ace L camera models. Customers can choose between two solutions depending on their requirements.
Ahrensburg – The high-quality lighting portfolio designed by camera manufacturer Basler together with the lighting experts at CCS is now available for order. The Basler Camera Light series is ideally suited for the specific requirements of an image processing system.
Basler's lighting portfolio is designed to perfectly match the Basler ace U and ace L camera models, easy-to-install, and carefully selected for vision systems of varying complexity. It offers an exclusive selection of standard lighting, which in many cases helps to avoid time-consuming self-build lighting or reduce integration complexity.
The unique Basler SLP feature makes it very easy for the user to control both the camera and the lighting using the Basler pylon Camera Software Suite. Synchronization between camera and lighting is done automatically, which saves time during initial operation. With the Basler SLP feature, even strobing and overdrive functions are easily accessible and can be used by less experienced users.
Customers can choose from two approaches: a plug-and-play approach using the Basler Camera Light series, where the SLP controller and standard lighting are integrated in one product, or the more flexible approach, where the Basler SLP controller provides the connection of a light source of choice from a wide range of light sources to the camera's SLP feature.
"With our tailor-made lighting portfolio we want to help our customers to find the right lighting and lighting control as early as possible in the design-in process when selecting a lens and camera," comments Torben Deike, Basler Product Manager for Vision Toolbox & Accessories. "The fact that the individual components are perfectly matched applies to the entire range of accessories that Basler offers. There is no exception when it comes to our lighting components," emphasizes Torben Deike.
Takayuki Fujita, CCS Global Sales Department Manager comments, “CCS is excited to be the official lighting partner to support Basler in this new development. Lighting plays a significant role in a vision system and we are confident that this innovative plug and play lighting solutions with perfect synchronization between the camera and lighting will offer great convenience and efficiency to the user”.
