Gardasoft PP Series

PP Series

To get the very best out of your LED lighting solution, in terms of brightness stability and control, the lights should be driven from a current source, not a nominal voltage supply. The Gardasoft controllers are current sources. The PP series LED lighting controller offers a selection from 2 to 16 output channels which are independently controlled.

Gardasoft LED Controllers

LEDs are current driven devices and current control from the LED power supply is essential for precise intensity control. The Gardasoft LED Lighting Controller range offers precise current control (strobe, pulse or continuous control) to ensure stable and repeatable illumination for Machine Vision Lighting and Image recognition systems.

Available in 2, 4, 8 and 16 channel modules, the Gardasoft range of LED Lighting Controllers allows the user to precisely control an LED light module on each channel.

Each channel can be individually configured to output continuously; or pulsed based on an external trigger signal or internal timer. The ‘F’ version controller will allow pulse width control down to 1µS resolution. Selected mode allows switching of the light based upon the state of an external trigger.

The PP models can be quickly configured using the free software, or simply by accessing the controller via your internet browser; type in the IP address for the controller into your browser and you have full access to all of the parameters. If you are using a third party software package the PP controller has a simple command set that is detailed in the manual allowing easy communication. As with all Gardasoft products, all the settings are stored in non-volatile memory, and it will retain these settings even when the Ethernet connection is disconnected.

Gardasoft PP Series LED Controllers overview

Each channel is controlled independently, with either continuous output or strobing of the light, with timing control down to 1µS on selected models so fast moving objects can be ‘frozen’ when imaged. Gardasoft’s patented SafeSense™ allows the LEDs to be overdriven safely, protecting the LEDs whilst optimising the amount of light produced. The Gardasoft White Paper on LED Controller technology is a useful reference for the principles of attaining maximum performance for Machine Vision illumination.
