Patent Issued for DoAll Robotics Light

Smart Vision Lights (SVL) has received patent number US 11,328,380 B2 for its latest machine vision light innovation, the DoAll Light.

According to Matt Pinter, CTO, Smart Vision Lights, "The DoAll does not just combine six different types of machine vision lights with 32 control channels. It also gives users the flexibility and advanced control they need for solving complex assembly and inspection tasks, including deep learning solutions."

The DoAll Light is an all-in-one solution that is designed for flexibility in machine vision illumination applications. A dome light, two angles of dark field illumination, NIR and RGBW ring lights and a four-quadrant multispectral ring light are all combined in a single unit. The DoAll Light is particularly suited for robotic and other flexible automation systems.

The ring lights can be independently controlled and have red, green, blue, white and 850 nm NIR channels that can be mixed for any color or for VIS + NIR inspections. The dome light provides diffuse illumination for electronics inspection and other final feature inspection, where hot spots and shadows can pose challenges. The two angles of dark field ring lights provide versatility and can illuminate a wide range of scenes, from fine surface textures to larger features such as screws. Finally, the four-quadrant ring light enables 3D photometric stereo inspection. All these functions and features are packaged in a single light enclosure.

Initially designed to be mounted at the end of a robotic arm, the DoAll Light includes multiple ports for connecting auxiliary lights, such as spots or linear lights. The DoAll Light is part of an advanced illumination system that includes the light, a sequencing controller, a 4ZMD (four-zone multidrive) LED driver and cables. The DoAll Light comes with many options, including LED colors and optics.
