When measuring the diameter of rotationally symmetrical parts or the pitch on threads and taps, normal diffuse light can no longer be used because the light “crawls” around the edges, thereby showing the diameter as less than it really is.
So that we now get the light from the LED cold light source on to the object, we need a ring light. When a very even and diffuse illumination is to be achieved, ring lights are unbeatable. The version with a radiation angle of 10° is used for larger working distances.
For highly reflective materials or if considerably more light output is needed, the KLQ-LED cold light source with 900 lumens is the perfect solution. With our high performance LED cold light source, we generate light similar to daylight and luminous fl ux values of 900 lumens at the output of a flexible light guide with an active diameter of nine millimetres.
For more strongly reflecting materials it makes sense to work with an LED ring light on which a diffuser is mounted on the LEDs. The LED-SG has such an additional diffuser and in addition can be switched to full illumination on the back in four segments. It is infinitely variable for brightness.
In the KITO 20, KITO 30 and KITO 40 models an LED bottom light plate is included in the system price. This diffuse LED bottom light is an ideal solution for all applications where a parallel bottom light is not required for precise measurement.
The scope of delivery of the systems described on the previous four pages includes the LED-R ring light. For many applications LED ring lights suffice for the top lighting. The LED-R with its 98 white LEDs, arranged at an angle of 15° in three rows, offers perfect illumination quality.
