LVS Robot Duty LED illuminator Multi-Tap cables are designed to provide DC power simultaneously to two to five 12 or 24 Volt LVS illuminators in ring, dome, bar, coaxial and flat configurations. Illuminator connections use standard SMP connectors with cable lengths to 20 meters. Multi-Tap cables permit simultaneous control of two to five separate illuminators from one controller port. 12-volt cables use 2-pin connectors with pin 1 positive and 24-volt cables use 3-pin connections with pin 1 positive and pin 3 negative - pin 2 is unused.
These cables are intended for continuous motion use as on a robot arm or in a cable track. When installing these cablesm assure that the connection at the illuminator end does not move when the cable flexes.
These cables use the same connector and pinouts found on LVS illuminators as well as on illuminators of several other brands. Please check with us before using these cables with other brands to verify compatibility.
Standard lengths are listed above. We can supply any length from 0.5 to 20 meters on special order. There are no tooling charges but the minimum order is five pieces. When calcualting lengths, please check the length of the cable permanently attached to the illuminator. This is usually 0.5 meters for LVS products.
These cables are rated (total for all taps) for 10 Watts with 12 Volt illuminators and 20 Watts with 24 Volt illuminators. Multi-tap cables can be extended using standard cable or cascaded as long as the total power and length limitations are met.
