Smart Vision Lights Introduces the DFLW-200-4Z Dark Field Washdown Ring Light for Machine Vision Applications in the Food Industry and Washdown Environments

Muskegon, Mich., April 8, 2019 — Smart Vision Lights (SVL), a global leader in the design and manufacture of LED illumination solutions for machine vision and other applications, introduced its new DFLW-200-4Z Dark Field Washdown Ring Light at the Automate 2019 conference and exhibition (Booth 8135).

SVL’s latest washdown light is available in stainless steel or anodized black aluminum housings. Both options are IP68 rated and specially designed for food industry and washdown environments where water and harsh detergents are present.

RM75-4Z Zone Ring LightThe DFLW-200-4Z light features a unique microlens turning film that directs LED light beams at a 25º angle toward the object under inspection. This innovative design gives the large-diameter dark field ring light an extended working distance while maintaining light intensity and uniformity.

The DFLW-200-4Z is sold in a kit, which includes an external Multi-Drive™ driver, allowing it to operate either continuously or in OverDrive™ strobe mode, depending on the wiring configuration. By regulating the current delivered to the LEDs and limiting their duty cycle, the Multi-Drive™ solution also protects LEDs from premature degradation and failure caused by excessive heat.

The industry-standard 5-pin M12 connector makes for simple wiring, while the 1–10VDC analog signal line gives the user total control.

SVL experts will be on hand to discuss the new DFLW-200-4Z Dark Field Washdown Ring Light at Booth 8135 during Automate 2019, which runs April 8–11 at Chicago’s McCormick Place.
