Smart Vision Lights Launches the New High-Speed XR256-FIBER Light as a Versatile LED-Powered Alternative for Xenon Lamps in Machine Vision Applications

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, launched its new compact and mountable high-speed XR256-FIBER Light at the Automate 2019 conference and exhibition (Booth 8135).

Designed to match the intensity of a Xenon source, the XR256 Fiber Light is a more versatile LED-powered alternative with T-slot mounting features. Its high-power LEDs boast a life span of more than 100,000 hours versus the 2,000 hours typical of Xenon bulbs.

XR256-FIBER Xenon Replacement Strobe LightThe XR256-FIBER Light leverages SVL’s OverDrive™ driver, allowing the light to operate strobe mode. By regulating the current delivered to the LEDs and limiting their duty cycle, the built-in SafeStrobe™ technology also protects LEDs from premature degradation and failure caused by excessive heat.

Additionally, SVL’s new fiber light features the company’s award-winning NanoDrive™ technology, which enables the spotlight’s LEDs to switch fully on within 500 ns and deliver hundreds of amps. With its quick rise time, the XR256-FIBER Light is capable of 100,000 strobes per second, which makes it an excellent advanced solution for machine vision applications that require rapid image acquisition or short image exposure times. Area scan and line scan cameras will also benefit from the light’s NanoDrive™ capability.

SVL experts will be on hand to discuss the new XR256-FIBER Light and its underlying technologies at Booth 8135 during Automate 2019, which runs April 8–11 at Chicago’s McCormick Place.
