Smart Vision Lights, a designer and manufacturer of high-brightness LED lights for industrial applications, is introducing the LXE300. The series features a metal housing and delivers up to 100,000 lux, making it the company’s brightest linear LED light. It includes a built-in Multi-Drive driver, allowing the light to operate continuously or in OverDrive strobe mode. The driver also protects the LEDs from premature degradation and failure from excessive heat by regulating the current delivered to the LEDs and by limiting their duty cycle.
Other features include the ability to connect as many as six lights end to end, with no spacing between them. This creates long, uniform-output linear lights for a fraction of the cost of a monolithic light, according to the company. Users can also daisy-chain as many as six of these systems using a locking jumper cable to support different multi-light configurations.
The industry-standard five-pin M12 connector simplifies wiring, since external wiring to a driver is unnecessary, and the 1-10 V DC analog control line gives the user control over intensity when running the light in continuous operation. The system also offers over-current protection, as well as PNP and NPN strobe input. The light is recommended for bright field, dark field, and direct lighting applications.
