AIT’s fast LED strobing technology xposure:flash is the perfect complement to xposure:camera, AIT’s 600 kHz ultra-fast line scan camera. The use of ultra-fast strobing can transform a single camera into a multispectral, multichannel and photometry acquisition system.

Advantages of high speed strobing

There is a trend in industrial inspection systems towards the simultaneous acquisition of more information. Even faster cameras with an increasing number of pixels are only one part of the solution. Adding high speed illumination can make more of these powerful cameras.

xposure:flash was specifically designed for industrial inline inspection. It simultaneously provides high illuminance and high homogeneity not only for one object plane, but homogenous illumination within a given 3D volume.

A specially adapted heat management system ensures maximum illumination stability and, together with the small unit size, this allows it to be used even in the tightest of Installation conditions.

xposure:flash enables new solutions for industrial inspection

Ultra-fast strobing enables new solutions for industrial inspection. It can transform a single camera into a Multi acquisition unit. By changing the light, e.g. direction, color or spectral range, between consecutive frames or lines enables new possibilites for advanced single camera systems.
