CV-LS - ColdVision Series

The CV-LS light source is the flagship of the SCHOTT ColdVision series, offering high efficiency output in a compact footprint with versatile connectivity. This connectivity makes it ideal for machine vision applications, while the high brightness LED light engine greatly increases light output – far beyond 150 W EJA halogen lamp levels for the Cool White model.

CHARACTERISTICS

With internal light feedback stabilization, the CV-LS provides consistent levels of powerful illumination, with a fast-triggered strobe of 25 µs rise time and 1 µs precision. The model can be controlled by either analog or digital remote control, with a range of ports including USB (virtual RS232), RS232, dual ethernet, and multiport. Available models include Cool White, Warm White, and RGBW.

YOUR ADVANTAGES

  • All connectors come with retention mechanisms.
  • High resistance to vibration and shock.
  • ESD immunity.
  • Maintenance-free LED engine with 50,000 operating hours.

MC-LS - ColdVision Series

As the standard LED fiber optic light source in the SCHOTT ColdVision range, the MC-LS delivers exceptional light output from its high-brightness LED engine. Developed for stereo microscopy, the design of the light source makes it highly suitable for desktop usage, where its USB port can easily connect to application software systems.

CHARACTERISTICS

With the ability to be controlled by digital remote control via USB port (virtual RS232) or built-in 9-pin connector (analog), the MC-LS offers all-round controllability, while a wide range of power supplies, all compliant with international standards, offers the ability to be set up anywhere in the world.

YOUR ADVANTAGES

  • Maximum light intensity of 850 lm. 
  • High resistance to vibration and shock.
  • Continuous dimming from 0-100 %.
  • Low fan noise enables silent operation.
  • Maintenance-free LED engine with 50,000 operating hours.
DCR® III - ColdVision Series
DCR® III - ColdVision Series

A DC-regulated 150 W halogen light source, the DCR® III generates intense but cool illumination for machine vision applications. One of the most versatile light sources in the ColdVision series, the DCR® III offers a choice of two 150 W halogen lamps (EKE or DDL) to provide a range of light intensity and color temperature options to maximize productivity and accuracy.

CHARACTERISTICS

The DCR® III light source has a large number of unique characteristics, from soft-start ‘lamp saver’ circuitry to an IR interference filter for cool illumination. It also has a built-in 9-pin connector for analog remote control and universal input voltage (90-265 VAC).

YOUR ADVANTAGES

  • Continuous dimming from 0-100 %.
  • Current limiting, which protects the unit from overheating because of defective or aging bulbs.
  • Lamp change indicator light.
ACE® - ColdVision Series
ACE® - ColdVision Series

A compact and rugged AC halogen light source, the ACE® is ideal for stereo microscopy thanks to its simplified, easy-to-use control options. With a solid state dimmer for variable light intensity, built-in thermal shutdown and quiet fan cooling, efficiency is maintained and lamp life is maximized.

CHARACTERISTICS

The ACE® light source is housed in a heavy duty metal casing, making it tough and long-lasting. There are two input voltage versions available (115 V and 230 V), as well as an IR interference filter for cool illumination. Along with actively controlled lamp temperature, the ACE® also provides a choice of two 150 W halogen lamps (EKE or DDL) to increase the range of light intensity and color temperature options.

YOUR ADVANTAGES

  • Maximum light intensity of 860 lm. 
  • Continuous dimming from 0-100 %.
  • Interchangeable Modulamp Units offer two positions to maximize the efficiency of individual lamps.
