New Multichannel Drivers Provide Output Control for Complex Machine Vision Solutions

Muskegon, Mich., September 20, 2018 — Smart Vision Lights, a leading designer and manufacturer of high-brightness LED lights for industrial applications, is pleased to introduce two external LED light drivers, the 4ZMD and the 4WMD. The 4ZMD allows users to control up to four independent lights or light zones, while the 4WMD allows users to control up to four independent wavelengths. Both external drivers have independent intensity controls and built-in Multi-Drive™, allowing for a range to be set from 10%–100% for continuous operation or OverDrive™ strobe mode.

4ZMD Standard DriverThe 4ZMD permits control of up to four separate light zones either independently or simultaneously, in any combination. The 4ZMD is designed primarily for use with photometric 3D systems and large multilight configurations that determine localized 3D information or inspect large areas, such as vehicle undercarriages. The 4ZMD can also control smaller lights, such as multi-zone ring lights. The 4ZMD is typically used with SVL’s new programmable LED Light Manager (LLM).

The 4WMD controls up to four independent wavelengths simultaneously while allowing independent control for each output channel. As such, the 4WMD delivers a tunable light created by the mixing of different LED light wavelengths. Standard light wavelengths include white, blue, red, green, UV, IR, and SWIR; custom wavelengths are available upon request.

The 4ZMD and the 4WMD are equipped with a 5-pin reverse-key M12 quick connect and a four-channel output screw terminal block. Both are equipped with digital/analog input channel screw terminal blocks and are DIN rail mountable. Both drivers incorporate SVL’s SafeStrobe™ technology, providing OverDrive™ protection to ensure that high-intensity LEDs are not damaged by being pushed beyond their maximum strobe times or duty cycles.
