High-Performance Products for Exacting Machine Vision Applications.
ProPhotonix Limited, (London Stock Exchange - AIM: PPIX and PPIR, OTC: STKR.PK), a designer and manufacturer of LED light engines and laser diodes modules with operations in Ireland and the U.K., is pleased to report that it will introduce five new products within its current range of machine vision solutions at the Vision Show which will be held in Stuttgart, Germany, from 8 November - 10 November.
At the show, the Company will unveil InViso Micro, an extension to the existing InViso range that delivers line thicknesses as low as 16 (micro)mat 120 mm working distance, while preserving InViso's innovative form factor. InVisoTM, introduced in 2010, is a range of diode-based laser modules with a unique flat form factor for expediting integration and alignment while ensuring a high-degree of repeatability. It is available in a range of wavelengths and power levels up to 100mW.
ProPhotonix also announces important additions to its proprietary COBRA Slim technology, increasing its capabilities and its flexibility. Introduced in 2009, COBRA Slim, the company's premier LED line light, is built on patented chip-on-board technology. The new additions include:
1. COBRA Max - The same slim modular design as the COBRA Slim with twice the illumination intensity.
2. COBRA Flex - An extreme brightness line light in a more compact form factor making it perfect for applications where space is restricted.
3. COBRA Slim FL - Twice the illumination intensity as COBRA Slim designed specifically for short working distances.
LOTUS Line Light, an LED replacement for fluorescents that is compatible with both back and front lighting area scan or linescan applications has been extended to include UV products. It is now available in 365nm or 395nm.
All these product enhancements were designed and developed at the Company's R&D center in Cork, Ireland.
Commenting on the new product launches, Mark W. Blodgett, Chairman and CEO of ProPhotonix, said: "These extensions to our product line build on our existing industry-leading suite of machine vision solutions and are a direct result of our close working relationship with our customers. They are always facing new operational challenges and our engineers start with a clean sheet of paper and systematically develop products that offer them greater flexibility, higher performance, and easier integration."
"We remain committed to being at the forefront of innovation within the LED technology sector, an area which is still seeing strong growth. At the Vision show we are simulating a production environment so that visitors to our booth can see how these products might function in their environment. In addition we are also showcasing the whole design process to illustrate the level of detail and interaction needed to create quality products."
