LTCLHP series are high-performance telecentric illuminators specifically designed to back illuminate objects imaged by telecentric lenses. This high performance series provides:

  • Excellent illumination stability featuring no light flickering thanks to very high current stability over time even at low currents.
  • Precise light intensity tuning thanks to the leadscrew multi-turn trimmer positioned in the back.
  • Easy LED source replacement and alignment for all the LED colors offered by Opto Engineering

LTCLHP telecentric illuminators offer higher edge contrast when compared to diffused back light illuminators and therefore higher measurement accuracy. This type of illumination is especially recommended for high accuracy measurement of round or cylindrical parts where diffusive back lighting would offer poor performances because of the diffuse reflections coming from the edges of objects under inspection.

Key advantages

  • Complete light coupling
    All the light emitted by a LTCLHP source is collected by a telecentric lens and transferred to the camera detector, ensuring a very high signal-to-noise ratios.
  • Border effects removal
    Diffused back-illuminators often make objects seem smaller than their actual size because of light reflections on the object sides, while collimated rays are typically much less reflected.
  • Field depth and telecentricity improvement
    Collimated illumination geometry increases a telecentric lens natural field depth and telecentricity far beyond its nominal specs.

Illumination stability

In machine vision systems it is essential that flicker-free light appears to the camera in order to provide consistent and repeatable image output. LTCLHP collimated illuminators feature no light flickering thanks to very high current stability over time even at low currents 1 providing images with stable gray-levels background 2. This is achieved through sophisticated built-in electronics which ensures constant current flow through the LED source and simultaneously lowers the noise level to the minimum. The state of the art built-in electronics is the core of Opto Engineering collimated illuminators built to provide excellent illumination stability, uniform light and low warm-up time (see graphs below).

 

Stability

Easy LED replacement

All LEDs offered by Opto Engineering can be easily replaced and positioned by the user using the provided LED centering tool which guarantees precise LED alignment. This way there is no need for soldering and no need to realign the imaging lens with LTCLHP collimated illuminator.

 

Easy replacement

Precise light intensity tuning

Easily and precisely tune the light intensity level thanks to the leadscrew multi-turn trimmer positioned in the back 3

tuning

Direct LED control

The built-in electronics can be bypassed in order to drive the LED directly for use in continuous or pulsed mode. When bypassed, built-in electronics behaves as an open circuit allowing direct control of the LED source 4.

Pins

Wide selection of different colors

Available LED colors include:

R = red, peak at 630 nm
G = green, peak at 520 nm
B = blue, peak at 460 nm
W = white

Opto Engineering recommends green light for high precision measurement applications: ensuring the lowest distortion and the highest telecentricity, also delivering the highest signal/noise ratio and the best image resolution.

Selecting the color of LTCLHP illuminators is easy: when ordering for example LTCLHP 064-G defines a LTCLHP 064 type collimated illuminator equipped with green (-G) LED.

Easy and precise alignment with bi-telecentric lenses

Create the perfect optical bench for any precision measurement application by interfacing our bi-telecentric lenses and LTCLHP collimated illuminators using Opto Engineering precision clamping mechanics CMHO series.

Each LTCLHP collimated illuminator up to LTCLHP 144-X can be mounted on the same clamping mechanics (CMHO series) used to fix and align our telecentric lenses.

 

Light paths with LTCL alignment

Excellent thermal management

Stable illumination can only be achieved when heat dissipation is correctly managed. LTCLHP collimated illuminators provide stable illumination because they efficiently dissipate the heat generated by the built-in electronics and the LED source thanks to a suitable heat sink directly in contact with the inner circuitry. This way, a low LED junction temperature in maintained ensuring optimal optical output performances (see graphs below)

Notes

  1. Less than 1‰ variation in LED forward current intensity.
  2. Variation of mean gray level between 10 consecutive images
  3. 21 full turns are required to bring the light intensity from minimum to maximum.
  4. Make sure that the maximum rates are not exceeded to avoid electrical shorts.
