LVS DS and LS series power controllers are designed to provide stroboscopic duration control for 16 or 32 channels of 12 or 24 Volt LVS illuminators in ring, dome, bar, coaxial and flat configurations. Duration can be controlled through front-panel adjustments, threough external triggering or through the rear-panel RS-485/RS-232 connection. The settable range is from 1 to 999 microseconds from the front panel or from the serial connection. Maximum duty cycle is limited to 10% to protect the LED illuminators.
Through the use of an FPGA internal controller, special features are included:
- A page feature allows 32 pages of data storage for each of the channels.
- On a single trigger signal all channels can output commands stored in the selected page simultaneously.
- A reset signal allows for the activation of designated pages in order.
- A single trigger signal input can give the same strobe output up to 9 times When a single strobe output is not bright enough.
The serial port may be set to RS-485 mode to allow daisy-chaning of multiple controllers or to RS-232 mode for simple control.
Illuminator connections use standard 2 or 3-pin SMP connectors with cable lengths to 20 meters. Cables for fixed or moving (robot arm) installations are available. See cable listings here.
