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 RT800 controller range offering eight 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. These controllers allow pulse width control down to 1 µS resolution. Selected mode allows switching of the light based upon the state of an external trigger.
