TPL Vision’s Modular Ringlight wins the Gold Medal award at Automaticon 2019

Opto Diode

During the latest Automaticon 2019 Show in Warsaw (26-29 March), the innovative Modular Ringlight range from TPL Vision
won the Gold Medal Award.

This product range is an all-in-one lighting solution which provides superior imaging conditions for Machine Vision and Code
Reading systems. The range comes in two sizes with multiple colours and embedded features such as sector control and
overdrive strobing functions, enabling innovative inspection techniques including surface effects to be used. Colour selection
and sectors can be controlled by the user from the simple keyboard, or using discrete inputs which lock or enable the keyboard
as required.
The colours, shapes and embedded features have been carefully selected and optimised to solve any kind of code reading
application. The casing of the light incorporates mounting points for reflector attachments so the user can create Dome,
Low Angle and Darkfield illumination effects in addition to the powerful Ringlight capabilities. Furthermore, the innovative optical
and mechanical design avoids hot points and loss in brightness. Embedding multiple features in this way greatly simplifies
the illumination selection process for the user, with just a few part number options to choose from. (Many suppliers have over
40,000 part-numbers in their catalogues which makes selecting the right product difficult and time consuming).
This simplified selection process is appreciated by all users – experts can rapidly validate their designs, beginners can learn
by quickly testing various configurations, and end-users enjoy the standardised concept which limits varieties and spares stockholding in their factories. Additionally, with only a few part number options, price and leadtimes are extremely competitive due
to mass-series production.
The Modular Ringlight product range addresses many issues users face when dealing with lighting equipment for Vision and ID
applications. There is, quite simply, nothing like this on the market today.

User Advantages:

    • Simplified product selection
    • Lab kit options – quick, in-house feasibility testing
      & application proving
    • Reduced cost
    • Significantly reduce time to project completion
    • Fast Lead times
    • End Users: Store fewer spare parts
    • High Quality Lighting
