  • Fluorescence Imaging Solution

    • Intense Fluorescence dome light
    • Multi-UV + White
    • Integrated BP filter

    TPL Vision’s Fluorescence Imaging Solution (FIS) is a flexible multi-wavelength UV dome light suitable for authentication, traceability and fluorescence inspection applications. Due to its unique design that allows users to test and select multiple UV wavelengths (UV365, UV395 & UV405), the FIS is suitable for the inspection of bank notes and excise stamps, as well as inspecting various levels of UV security and brand protection features used on pharmaceutical products, electronics and luxury goods, including perfumes and aftershaves, tobacco and alcohol products, and designer-branded goods.

    Compatible with any visible spectrum camera, the FIS is an all-in-one UV solution that also maximises the safety of operators by blocking direct UV radiation through the dome and the integrated filter.

    • Powerful strobe with all current control integrated for easy setup
    • Homogeneous dome effect with proprietary finishing, suitable for complex surfaces like glass and shiny metals
    • Safe for operators thanks to dome & filter blocking all direct UV radiation
    • All-in-one UV solution with integrated LP415 filter, just place the camera
  • Collimated CSBACK

    • Compact collimated backlight
    • >90% surface uniformity
    • Sizes from 0.0025m² to 0.04m²

    TPL Vision’s collimated backlight, the CSBACK is the perfect illumination choice for the inspection or measurement of clear plastics and rounded parts. Collimated light by definition has parallel light rays, and therefore spreads minimally as it propagates, helping to create high-contrast images needed for precise edge detection and defect analysis.

    Key application areas include the inspection of objects with rounded edges and clear parts, which may be challenging to inspect with traditional backlights due to the lack of contrast. A collimated light allows users to eliminate this effect by providing a narrower illumination angle that stops the light from wrapping around rounded parts. This also means that images of clear parts no longer appear “washed out”. The edges are more clearly defined, and details are seen with improved contrast, leading to high-quality images and increased accuracy.

    UV INFO: in the light spectrum, UV (ultra violet) rays are electromagnetic radiations situated between 280 and 400 nm (visible radiations: between 400 and 800 nm). What makes UV very interesting is the fact that, even if it is invisible for the naked eye, it can be observed by fluorescence: when some bodies are submitted to UV wavelengths, they emit a visible light. This is the principle of black light and of counterfeit notes detection.

  • Black & Light (Bn’L)

    • Uniform backlight when ON
    • Matte background when OFF
    • Sizes from 0.04m² to 0.81m²

    Many machine vision systems are not made of 1 single light, but of many different illuminations. And, quite often, LED panels can disturb the camera and the other lights efficiency, because they are equipped with a white diffuser, when a dark background would be required.   The Black & Light (Bn’L) by TPL Vision is an innovative solution, that can be integrated in most applications. Equipped with high brightness LEDs, once it is switched on, it perfectly highlights the shape of the products you need to control.   And, as soon as it is off, it becomes a dark background, that helps the other illuminations to work properly. Moreover, the matt materials help to absorb the extra light, and to enhance the inspection process. The Black & Light is available in Standard, Overdrive versions.

    • MATT DIFFUSER = BLACK BACKGROUND,
    • ULTRA THIN BORDERS,
    • RISING TIME : 25 μs.
  • Led Brick

    • OEM backlight solution

    Equipped with 4 high powerful LEDs, the LED BRICK modules by TPL Vision can be easily  interconnected. You just have to plug few modules of LED BRICK all together to get very large lighting areas, easily upgradable according to the vision application’s features. If you just add an opaque diffuser on the top of the configuration, you get a perfectly homogeneous backlight, very appreciated by machine vision specialists. The LED BRICK lighting solutions can rely on the LED advanced technology at very affordable prices.

    The MR-RING is a bi-colour LED illumination, available in 2 sets of colours and 2 dimensions. It has been designed with tough production environments in mind: IP65 as standard, overdrive embedded, simple remote control capability (selection of colours and quadrants). Direct light can be used when:

    • objects do not reflect light (matt surface),
    • objects require maximum illumination brightness (e.g. fast moving items),
    • objects where shadows are not going to be present or cause problems.

    The MR-RING should be mounted so that the light shines directly onto the object of interest. Maximum illumination intensity will be achieved when the item is closest to the light. The camera can be mounted looking through the ring or to the side dependent on desired effect. The MR-RING can also be used for applications where a machine enclosure is being used to provide reflected diffused light. The MR-DOME version may also be appropriate.
