Camera and lighting combination from Laetus

Two-in-one system – Smart camera and lighting unit combined

Laetus, 29 September 2021. Different materials and process environments put high requirements on the optical quality control of products and packaging. The camera and lighting combination SmartSpect/eLED from Laetus offers intelligent high-performance image processing and ideally adjusted lighting in one compact system. Users benefit from diverse applications and significant time savings.

Using one single calibrated system for both lighting and image processing for inspection allows a particularly fast integration, as there is no need to configurate separate hardware and software components. When used in different lines, the results can be directly compared and the parameters optimized. Plus, camera and lighting do not need to be synchronized again for format changes, which saves a lot of time. The combined compact design allows for significant space savings. All applications are programmed, eliminating the need for an external control device.
