The RT 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 need of having to use a bespoke DC power supply or heat sinking the controller. All RT models also include our SafeSense™ technology, which enables the safe overdriving of LEDs. 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 pulse /strobe controllers are current sources, with the RT400 controller range offering four output channels which are independently controlled.
Each channel can be individually configured to output continuously; or pulsed based on an external trigger signal or internal timer. The ‘F’ version controller will allow pulse width control down to 1µS resolution. Selected mode allows switching of the light based upon the state of an external trigger.
