A-241 Machine Vision Illuminator

A-241 Fiber Optic Illuminator
150-Watt Quartz Halogen DC Stabilized Fiber Optic Illuminator

The A-241 is a high performance illuminator specifically designed for critical machine vision applications in a factory environment. The unit consists of a regulated DC power supply with selectable panel and analog 0-5 VDC intensity control. Computer controlled 8-bit digital I/O remote intensity adjustment is also available. The small remote lamp module can be effectively mounted close to conserve on fiber optic length or directly on a robotic arm. The lamp module includes mounting for a near infrared and two additional color filters.
