All VIEW systems are equipped with high brightness LED illuminators. LEDs offer long life, low power consumption and cool operation. In addition, LEDs allow the color temperature of the illumination to be closely controlled.
Back-light and through-the-lens surface light are standard on all machines. During programming and automatic measurements, the light source and intensity for each measurement may be programmed to best illuminate the feature of interest.
For surface features that are at an angle with respect to the X-Y plane, VIEW’s Programmable Ring Light (PRL) may be used. In addition to programmable intensity, the PRL offers three unique degrees of freedom in lighting the scene:
- The direction of the illumination may be selected
- The angle of incidence of the light may be selected
- The color of the illumination may be selected
