Vision System Lighting
Machine Vision is now generally considered as a robust and reliable solution for many applications across a wide range of industries. It is still however, the choice of Vision System Lighting that can make or break many applications and still an area that is often misunderstood.
The choice of lighting is critical to the success of machine vision and choosing the correct lighting can often reduce the overall investment in terms of hardware and time to implement.
Our Vision System Lighting
We are now able to offer the following Vision System Lighting solutions:
- Spot Lights
- Back Lights
- Bar Lights
- Ring Lights
- Dark Field Lights
- Stainless Steel Lights
- Ultra Violet Lights
- Coaxial Lights
We are also able to supply many special versions of lighting to suit the more demanding applications. All versions of Vision System Lighting are available in stainless steel housings for food and pharmaceutical applications.

Coaxial Lights for Machine Vision Systems couple light in from the side by means of a semitransparent mirror into the optical path of the vision system. The test object is transmitting the reflected light through the mirror back to the vision system.
Ultraviolet Lights for Machine Vision Systems are used for surface inspections and the visualisation of features, which cannot be detected using the visible light spectrum. Small features, dust or scratches as well as fluorescent features like UV active ink codes will be visible and can be reliably analysed.
Stainless Steel Lights for Machine Vision Systems are designed for use within the food & beverage and the pharmaceutical industry as well as applications, where lights with specific casing materials are essential. The high IP protection class up to IP 69K make these lights ideal for applications, where wash down with specific cleaning substances and pressurised water is required.
Dark Field Lights for Machine Vision Systems are used for the highlighting of edges or structures on an object. Using dark field lighting, only a part of the emitted light is transferred to the camera lens because of reflections, refraction, and diffraction of the light onto the objects structures.
Ring Lights for Machine Vision Systems are used as direct light in conjunction with Vision and Identification systems. Di-soric ring lights are ideal for shadow free and homogeneous lighting on matt or quite non reflecting surfaces.
Bar Lights for Machine Vision Systems are used within countless applications, mainly within for quality assurance in conjunction with Vision and Identification systems. Di-soric bar lights are available in several lights colours and models and offer a stable analysis, free from external light interference.
