The R80 is a compact, high-output ringlight with universal mounting to lenses. It can be adapted to any vision system with any of four standard mounting options that are provided with each unit. A standard M46 thread protrudes from the back of the R80. Using readily available filter step-up or step-down rings, it can be mounted directly to the filter threads found on the front end of most lenses, or mount the lens at the front end of the light. A T-slot on all four sides allows standard industrial T-nuts to be dropped into the slot for mounting. The fourth mount option uses four threaded M4 holes on the light's back plate. The ringlight has four high-current LEDs and is available in white, red, amber, blue, green, cyan, UV, and IR outputs.

PRESS RELEASE

Company develops easy to mount LED Ring Light

Muskegon, MI -- Smart Vision Lights is pleased to introduce a compact high output ring light with universal mounting to lenses. The new R80 LED Ring Light can be quickly and easily adapted to any vision system with either of four standard mounting options that are provided with each unit. First, there is a standard M46 thread protruding from the back of the R80. Using readily available filter step-up or step-down rings (which can be purchased from Smart Vision Lights or Midwest Optical), it can be mounted directly to the filter threads found on the front end of most lenses. Second is the ability to mount the lens at the front end of the R80 Ring Light. Once again, an off-the-shelf M46 step ring can be used to adapt lenses with M43 or smaller filter mounting threads. A flange at the front end of the R80 holds the step ring with three set screws, and the camera lens is inserted through the center of the R80 and threaded onto the step ring. In those few cases where the lens’s locking thumbscrews may prevent the lens from fitting through the center of the R80, extra low-profile replacement set screws are included, allowing the protruding thumbscrews to be removed. Third is a T-slot on all 4 sides. Standard industrial T-nuts can be dropped into the slot for mounting. Fourth way to mount the light is using the 4 threaded M4 holes on the back plate of light. Additional mounting information can be found at www.ezmountringlight.com

The R80 ring light has 4 high current LED’s. R80 ring light is available in outputs of White, Red, Amber, Blue, Green, Cyan, UV and IR. R80 ring light includes an integrated constant current driver with a built in strobe input with option for PNP or NPN trigger control. No need for an external driver to control the light. The integrated driver also includes variable light intensity control. Light can be controlled by an internal pot or a 0-10VDC analog signal.
