Are difficult imaging requirements preventing you from getting the most from your video measuring system?
Take a close look at the new SmartRing light from OGP. Available exclusively for SmartScope Flash, SmartScope Flare, SmartScope Quest, SmartScope ZIP, SmartScope MVP, and SmartScope ATS video measuring systems, SmartRing (US patent 5,690,417) measures even the most difficult parts with ease.
SmartRing accomplishes this difficult task by providing light that is programmable for both direction and incidence angle.
Two Lights In One
SmartRing consists of six or eight concentric LED ring lights focused though a specially designed Fresnel lens. The inner rings illuminate the part from above, almost "square-on." The outer rings provide oblique lighting, ideal for chamfered edges and blended radii. By selecting different rings, you control the angle of incidence of the illumination.
Each ring is also divided into eight sectors, allowing you to specify the direction of the light. Using SmartRing’s graphical interface, you can select any combination of rings and sectors to create just the right illumination for any application.
Just look at these dramatic before and after images. A typical fiber optic ring illuminator creates an image that looks like the image on the left. The second, with SmartRing, looks like the image to the right, showing how the edge really stands out for increased measurement accuracy.
If you’ve got a tough non-contact measurement application, take a close look at SmartRing. It’s the right light for the right measurement.
