Lightlines and Lenses

Uniform lines of light ideal for Machine Vision and line scan applications achieving higher uniformity than any LED chips due to position density.

Lightlines

12” Lightline, A08905
Product and Performance Characteristics:
 
  • Calibrated with DDL-bulb to a specified number of gray scale levels (see chart) at a mean of 200 with a gamma setting of 1.0 to deliver optimum uniformity (See reference section for more information on uniformity of fiber optic products)
  • Assembly method accurately positions the fiber line within the body on all three planes, to a tolerance of ± .004”(0.1)†, assuring the fiber axis will be parallel with the mounting surface of the body
  • Fiber bundle exit locations include back-side (standard exit), back-center, and true-side
  • Rugged aluminum body and light source ferrule with black anodized finish, PVC covered metal tubing protects the fiber bundle
  • Lightline holders and support products available
  • Custom lengths, bundle exits, multiple combinations (dual, quad, etc.) and line widths can be designed for your unique requirements
  • Cylindrical and apertured lenses are available for most lightline models (Made-to-Order)

Lightlines 1, 2, 3

1” (25) Dual Lightline, A08579
Product and Performance Characteristics:

Alternative to fiber optic bundles for narrower and elongated illumination for Microscopy and Machine Vision Inspection
applications with higher uniformity than any LED chips can achieve due to position density
  • Small, uniform fields of view
  • Narrow body design and offset position of the line on 1" (25) and 2" (51) bodies allows close positioning for darkfield effect
  • 3"(76)* models are calibrated with DDL-bulb to ±8 gray scale levels at a mean of 200 with a gamma setting of 1.0 to deliver optimum uniformity (see chart)
  • Uniformity of 1"(25) and 2"(51) lines is better than ±8 gray scales (See reference section for more information on uniformity of fiber optic products)
  • Rugged aluminum body and light source ferrule with black anodized finish, PVC covered metal tubing protects the fiber bundle
  • Lightline holders and support products available
  • Custom lengths, bundle exits, multiple combinations (dual, quad, etc.) and line widths can be designed for your unique requirements; Combine lightlines with other fiber optic components in a single input to create unique lighting effects
  • Cylindrical and apertured lenses are available for most lightline models (Made-to-Order)

Spatially Randomized Lightlines

Continuous Lightline, A08940
Product and Performance Characteristics:
 
  • Manufactured using a patented process called spatial randomization, the process allows light from each input to be distributed over the entire length of the line so that if a light source fails while using multiple inputs, intensity is evenly reduced over the length of the line, rather than losing all light in a section of the line
  • Calibrated to ±15 gray scale levels at a mean of 200 with a gamma setting of 1.0 to deliver optimum uniformity (See reference section for more information on uniformity of fiber optic products)
  • Assembly method accurately positions the fiber line within the body on all three planes, to a tolerance of ± .004”(0.1)†, assuring the fiber axis will be parallel with the mounting surface of the body
  • 24" (610) lightline accepts our dichroic filters and diffusers, to use color filters on the 40" (1016) line part number A08931, color filter adapter, is required
  • Rugged aluminum body with a black anodized finish, stainless steel tubing protects the fiber bundle
  • Cylindrical lenses are available and are designed to collect light exiting the lightline to increase intensity up to a factor of 10
  • Custom lengths, bundle exits, and line widths can be designed for your unique requirements
