UV lighting targets machine vision applications

April 22, 2014

While many of today's machine vision systems use visible LED lighting components to illuminate products to be inspected, both shorter ultraviolet (UV) and longer infrared (IR) lighting can prove more useful in specialized applications. While much has been written about the use of short wave infrared (SWIR) in applications ranging from agricultural product inspection to security and military applications, less information is available regarding the use of illuminating and inspecting objects with UV lighting. This article takes a look at how UV lighting is used in a number of machine vision applications. >>>Read more
