Description

The RC range is Gardasoft’s latest generation of LED lighting controller solutions for machine vision applications. Implementing our patented SafePower™ technology, installation is very easy, removing the needs of perhaps having to use a bespoke DC power supply or heat sinking the controller. All RC models also include our SafeSense™ technology. To get the very best out of your LED lighting solution, in terms of brightness stability and control, lighting should be driven from a current source, not a nominal voltage supply. The Gardasoft RC Series controllers are therefore single channel current source devices.

The RC Series models can be quickly configured using our free software (which can be downloaded via the software link on this page), or for the Ethernet enabled RC120 controller, simply by accessing the controller via your internet browser; type the IP address for the controller into your browser and you have full access to all of the parameters. Using a third party software package? Not a problem, the RC range has a simple command set that is detailed in the manual allowing easy communication. As with all Gardasoft products, all the settings are stored in non-volatile memory, and it will retain these settings even when the Ethernet connection is disconnected.
