LED Light’s Multi-Drive Feature Protects Light from Excessive Heat Damage
The LXE300 from Smart Vision Lights is the company’s brightest linear LED light.
Smart Vision Lights, a leading designer and manufacturer of high-brightness LED lights for industrial applications, introduces its most advanced and brightest linear light yet, the LXE300.
The LXE300 series delivers up to 100,0000 lux, making it Smart Vision Light’s brightest linear LED light. The series features metal housing and includes Smart Vision Lights’ built-in Multi-Drive driver, allowing the light to operate continuously or in the OverDrive strobe mode. The Multi-Drive also protects the LEDs from premature degradation and failure that excessive heat causes by regulating the current delivered to the LEDs and by limiting their duty cycle.
Other advanced features include the ability to connect up to six lights directly (end to end with no spacing between the lights) to create uniform-output, long linear lights for a fraction of the cost of a monolithic light. Users can also daisy-chain as many as six LXE300 lights using a locking jumper cable to support a variety of multi-light configurations.
Smart Vision Lights says that the 5-pin M12 connector makes for simple wiring, since external wiring to a driver is unnecessary, and the 1–10 V DC analog control line gives the user total control over intensity when running the light in continuous operation. The LXE300 also offers over-current protection, as well as PNP and NPN strobe input. The light is recommended for bright field, dark field, and direct lighting applications.
