LED Light Controllers
MERCRON announces its newly-developed
LED drivers and LED lamps to replace
Fluorescent lamps and other lighting
ESPECIALLY in line scan applications.
These linear LED lamps are:
→ T5/HO lamps: 5/8” (16mm) in diameter; 2-feet, 3-feet & 4- feet in length
→ Made for AC drive, but converted to operate with DC drive by MERCRON
→ Offer quieter and constant Machine Vision Lighting.
Note difference in overall length & Illuminated length
These LED lamps have VERY DENSE spacing which:
- Provides powerful lighting without abusing the lamp
- Minimizes the spatial issue with LED lamps
- Are individually more powerful than a T5/HO Fluorescent aperture lamp @ 6500 candlepower, WHILE…
- A pair of Two (2) T5/HO lamps – side-by-side – are more powerful than a T12 (38 mm)/ VHO, 30° Fluorescent aperture lamp
- The pair will fit in an even-smaller space than one T12
In addition to 9 other models, MERCRON makes a special Low-voltage LED Controller which drives only the 24” lamps:
- Drives the lamps in parallel at 45 DC volts in order to stay below the 60-volt threshold for SELV circuits (However, should not be operated at full power due to the risk of “thermal runaway”)
- Minimizes agency approvals/expenses for the Machine Vision System
- Can drive up to a total of 10 lamps
- Can be used to control two (2) banks of up to 5 lamps independently
ALL LED Models have MERCRON’s signature features of:
→ Precision Regulation 1/4 % or better
→ Light Feedback
→ Wide-range Variability: 5-to-1+/-
→ Remote control
→ “All’s Well Monitoring Signal assuring light level stays at selected level
See MODELS for 10 LED Controllers to date. Contact us for possible variations of these models.
See MECHANICAL SPECS for 2 different Chassis dimensions.
MERCRON LED Light Controllers, or ballasts, are manufactured to operate a specific combination of lamps as follows:
For 24″ Lamps:
|MODEL||Number of 2-FT Lamps Driven
For 36″ Lamps:
|MODEL||Number of 3-FT Lamps Driven
For 48″ Lamps:
|MODEL||Number of 4-FT Lamps Driven
* IMPORTANT: For Overseas Markets, the model’s designation is MLDY; Be sure to specify!
Low Voltage for 24″ Lamps ONLY:
|MODEL||Output Voltage||Type of Lamp||Number of 2-FT Lamps Driven
|LED 48-24-X||48||24″||Up to 10|
For US Markets:
MERCRON’s LED Light Controllers have the same package size as existing MERCRON Lamp Controllers: 2.625” X 9.5”X 5.125”
For European Markets:
MERCRON’s LED Light Controllers’ dimensions are 2.625” X 11” X 5.125”; i.e., 1½ inches longer.
For ALL Markets:
The LED 48-24-X is the same as the regular MERCRON Chassis: 2.625” x 9.5” x 5.125”
