Optimum lighting conditions for the application
Image processing always depends on the right lighting. Balluff offers a wide array of robust auxiliary lights designed for multiple installation spaces and tasks.
With energy-saving and long-lasting LED technology Balluff lighting options guarantee eye safety in accordance with IEC 62471. Select between red light, white light, infrared light or laser variants.
Our dark field lights are used to check for scratches, pits, and impurities on surfaces. Their red light reliably and homogeneously illuminates a light field with a diameter of 90 mm, regardless of the material and surface. Installation is fast and simple.
With our background lights, you can easily check dimensions and shapes and for any material or surface. Choose between different sizes and different light field diameters (25 mm × 25 mm to 300 mm × 200 mm) and variants with red and infrared light. Balluff background lights can also be used for diffuse incident lights.
The light field size of our ring lights has a diameter of 100/60 mm. As additional incident light with luminous LEDs, they enable homogeneous illumination in versions with red, white, and infrared lights.
When used as lateral illumination, our strip lights create shadows to check features. The strip lights provide consistent lighting without glare points.
The strip lights are available in different sizes with light field diameters from 10 mm × 95 mm to 10 mm × 195 mm. Versions with red, white, and infrared light are available. When used as direct lighting, they enable an illumination of the image field.
Our coaxial lights with red light are optimally suited for the illumination of highly reflective or mirrored surfaces. Choose between two different sizes with light fields from 50 mm × 50 mm to 100 mm × 100 mm.
To fill in areas with pinpoint accuracy, our spotlights are the right choice. Solutions of varying size (M12, M18, M30) as well as versions with red or infrared light are available. In each case, you benefit from easy installation and less frequent inspections.
Our powerful line lasers are used for the detection and measurement of defects, diameters, images, gaps, steps, or presence control. The line lasers are also usable in industrial image processing and for the alignment and positioning of workpieces or accessories.
Balluff line lasers can be triggered, focused and modulated. Of our especially long-lasting solutions, you can select between red, blue and green light types as well as various projection types –line, grid, matrix, point, and cross.
Our high-quality LED machine lights series BAE LX are designed for versatility. They are ideal not only for machines, but also for washing equipment, workbenches, test stands, semi-automated workstations, and special applications in the automotive industry. Their compact, rugged construction with an IP67 or IP69K protection rating ensures high performance and especially long service life. Special fastening elements and a 4-pin M12 connection make it quick and easy to integrate them into the equipment design. The new series BAE LX machine lights are available in plastic or borosilicate glass and in eleven lengths – from 250 mm to 1200 mm. Plastic (PMMA) versions are 20 mm in diameter while borosilicate glass versions measure 45 mm in diameter. Our products feature simple installation, the best possible energy efficiency and an attractive price-performance ratio.
