Factory automation and inspection carried out by machine vision systems is becoming increasingly important in the production processes of diverse industries such as automotive, electronics and pharmaceutical packaging. To support high-performance image processing, SCHOTT MORITEX has increased its product portfolio of lighting and illumination systems with its new CompaVis™ LED series. The series consists of 40 different models in a variety of configurations and colors.

The design of the CompaVisTM products is based on existing SCHOTT MORITEX technology platforms for constant voltage lighting products with a few changes of note. In contrast to established MCV light series, the peak wavelength for the red CompaVisTM LED lights has changed from 660 to 630 nm which is the optimum “red” wavelength for camera sensitivity and LED output efficiency.

“Economies of scale and further optimized production and supply chain processes allow us to offer the new series at a competitive price. We believe that the CompaVisTM products are a notable lighting alternative for customers looking for a top technological design at an attractive price level,” says Jason Baechler, Business Manager for Industrial Products at SCHOTT North America, Inc.’s Lighting and Imaging Division.

The CompaVisTM products will be on display at the Vision Show in Boston, MA, USA (April 15-17, 2014) at the Hynes Convention Center, SCHOTT booth # 624.

Product Information:
The CompaVisTM series mainly consists of a variety of configurations included ring, bar, and square bar illumination models. In total 40 different types are available with red, white or blue. All models operate with 24 VDC and are available with a Harting M12 connector as well as JST connector. IR and UV options are available upon request along with customized designs.
