LED displays are used in an increasingly large number of products, public displays for businesses, signage and more. They’re known for their versatility and their quality. However, none of that would be possible with products which didn’t emit light properly, or were otherwise unreliable, inconsistent or of a general lower quality. Whether you’re manufacturing them or incorporating them into the manufacturing of other end products, you need to be able to quickly and accurately gauge that quality and capability before the product hits the streets.
Enter the LEX-1000 color light measurement sensor, produced by EMX Industries, Inc.
The LEX-1000 color light measurement sensor is the ideal solution for providing accurate and quick readings of RGB colors from a variety of light sources which may be used in electronic assemblies. These potential uses are far-reaching, including any range of indicator LEDs used on popular consumer or industrial electronics. It can even be used on screens themselves to verify the accuracy of the screen’s output for given color conditions, and to verify the screen’s quality and functionality. With its high-speed discrete output, and intuitive, user-friendly software, the LEX-1000 provides added efficiency, control and reliability in any factory or industrial setting.
The LEX-1000 offers unparalleled high resolution and fast response time; it works by collecting light and focusing it onto an internal receiver, where it’s analyzed for its constituent RGB values. Users can program four separate color channels, storing acceptable RGB ranges for each, enabling easy switching between different configurations. Tolerance can also be adjusted in increments from .5% to 50%. A discrete output will signal verification of a color match, while more detailed displays are offered through an exclusive PC-based software configuration, known as the ColorMax Windows Application, connected via USB. Here, the LEX-1000 will display RGB values from 0 to 100%. These absolute values can be displayed via bar graphs, or relative color comparisons can be shown via pie charts. And the new white balance adjustment feature, which allows for the entry of correction factors applied to the red, green and blue color measurements, effectively provides a means of adjusting the sensor readings. This new functionality is useful when multiple sensors are being used and must be set for specific RGB readings on a known target. Along with exclusive and intuitive software configuration and it’s ease of setup and integration with your existing factory system, operators can be locked out from making unwanted changes while rugged M30 housing ensures the LEX-1000 will easily hold up to any industrial environment; you’ll be able to depend on it for long-lasting and continuous light evaluation and comparative measurements.
All of this allows you to instantly verify color measurements and quality with LED lighting, while quickly finding problems or defects before a larger problem occurs. The efficiency, productivity and profitability of your processes will all increase. When you’re looking for a robust, high-speed, automated detection system for light measurement on electronic assemblies, the LEX-1000 stands alone at the top of its class.
