Metaphase Technologies MB-CTL41


The Metaphase Technologies MB-CTL41 Collimated Tube Backlights are ideal for producing high contrast silhouettes.  The Collimated Tube Backlight boasts increased illumination compared to standard backlights when used with telecentric lensing. Telecentric illumination is ideal for precision measurements where accuracy, repeatability, and throughput are key factors in the application’s success.  The key benefits of telecentric illumination are: superior detection of small defects; increased measurement accuracy and repeatability compared to standard backlight illumination; elimination of blurred edges caused by diffuse reflections; increased light intensity from collimated light rays; high contrast images from the elimination of blurred edges and increased light intensity; reduced camera exposure times from increased light intensity; faster systems and high throughput compared to standard backlight illumination and increased distance between object and illumination source.
