The machine vision lighting maker Smart Vision Lights of Muskegon, MI, USA has chosen Big Chip LED technology from Luminus Devices Inc, for its new product line of illumination sources.
Luminus’ SST-90 LED is at the heart of Smart Vision Lights’ SP30 Series LED structured light pattern projector for the machine vision industry.
“We selected the Luminus SST-90 for the large die footprint and high lumen output,” says Smart Vision Lights’ design engineer Matt Pinter. “The SST-90 gives us better uniformity across the pattern and provides much higher output than typical 1mm2 LEDs,” he adds. “The new SP30 Series structured light LED source is selling really well. We are competing against and taking business from lasers.”
“Luminus has an established track record of displacing traditional high-power illumination sources with its Big Chip LED technology,” says Chuck DeMilo, global director of product marketing. “In general lighting and entertainment lighting we are enabling the conversion from metal halide to LED. In projection display we are displacing UHP [ultra high pressure] mercury sources. Now in machine vision we are seeing success in converting lasers based systems to LED,” he adds.
