Xenon flash light source (22.5W)


Compact, lightweight 22.5W-power Xenon flash light source for machine vision applications of up to 450 Hz operation.

Easy-to-use integrated (power unit and lamp all-in-one) strobe that comes with the fiber light guide type and the direct illumination type. The world's most compact and lightweight integrated 22.5W strobe. The direct illumination models can be used for movable applications.
12 models (15, 22, 30, 45, 60, 75, 90, 112, 150, 225, 300, and 450 Hz models) are available according to the size of the test objects and the production line speeds. Standard features include light intensity adjustment (25-100%) function and miss flash detection function.

Main features

  • Easy-to-use fully integrated (power unit and lamp all-in-one) strobe
  • The world's most compact and lightweight integrated 22.5W integrated strobe, 70×70×160 mm and 700 g
  • Produces high frequency pulsed light up to 450 Hz.
  • The brightest 15 Hz model offers high flash energy of 1.5 Joules/flash.
  • Light intensity is adjustable (25% to 100%) via external analog/digital signals or internal adjuster.
  • High stability (1%cv or less)
  • Long life ( 1×108 flashes)
  • Miss flash (flash failure during repeated pulsing) detection function
  • Features adaptors for a wide range of commercial fiber light guides.

High stability

Improvements in xenon tube electrodes minimize fluctuations in light output (1%cv or less).

X-80L xenon lamp spectral characteristics

Light from xenon flash lamps has a spectrum similar to sunlight. The data on the left compares the spectral characteristics of three flashes with different lamp input energy per flash. Greater input energy is associated with greater output in the visible spectrum relative to the infrared spectrum.
