Metaphase Technologies MB-BL18X18


The Metaphase Technologies MB-BL18X18 Metabright Area Backlight is a high performance and uniform light source for silhouetting and transmissive applications. Using a Full-Array LED layout, we can pack more LEDs per square inch to provide greater intensity, uniformity, and performance.  The Metabright Area Backlight Series is available with a wide variety of LED colors and sizes including White, Red, Green, Blue, IR, UVS, UVL, and RGB with independent color control and with active areas ranging from 1”x1” (25mm x 25mm) to custom order sizes of 5’ x 5’ (1.5m x 1.5m). Metaphase Technologies offers the world’s largest selection of machine vision and specialty LED Illumination. Since 1993, our engineering expertise in designing for integration into vision systems has enhanced a vast array of products. Metaphase illumination for industrial applications such as automation systems, line scan inspection, and fast-capture imaging strobe gives an edge to our customers in manufacturing and quality assurance. Most recently we’ve expanded our scope to develop illumination for security applications such as border patrol, law enforcement, and military markets.
