Introducing the GEN 4 Ultimate Line Light

POSTED 02/24/2012


Metaphase Technologies proudly releases its newest generation of comprehensive LED Line Lights for integration into vision systems utilizing line scan cameras.  Gen4 ULTIMATE Line Light systems have been carefully engineered with expert mechanical design for stability, fanless cooling, uniform diffuse light output, and advanced control capabilities. 
Gen4 ULTIMATE Line Lights feature advanced optics for custom focal length and working distances, as well as LED beam shaping diffuser technology for extremely even illumination. Optional optical configurations provide for light collimation, wrinkle detection, dark-field illumination, and inclusion inspection. When paired with Metaphase’s Universal LED Controller (ULC-2), modular sections can be independently controlled for greater command capability. The Gen4 Ultimate Line Light provides a 40% increase in usable brightness over Metaphase’s MetaBrightTM Series.  Systems employ expert passive thermal conduction for increased LED lifetime. Durable housing design fortifies the best performance line scan illuminators to date.
