3 Benefits of Pulsed Lighting

Pulsed illumination offers several benefits that are well suited to transport applications. In this article we will look at three of these benefits in more detail. More Light The lifetime of an illuminator is controlled by the average operating temperature of an LED. Because pulsed illuminators are only turned on for a fraction of the total amount of available time (duty cycle), this means there is significant scope to increase the light output of an LED illuminator for shorter periods. Raytec pulsed illuminators typically provide 400% power output compared to... Read More



Raytec are proud to launch PULSESTAR, a new range of high-intensity pulsed LED illuminators designed for transport applications including ANPR/LPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition/License Plate Recognition), and ACCR/ACNR (Automatic Container Code/Number Recognition). PULSESTAR delivers on-demand lighting to perfectly illuminate fast moving objects. The lighting pulse of the illuminator can be easily synced with the camera shutter via a TTL input to ensure maximum light levels precisely when necessary. Pulsed LED technology delivers significant uplifts in illuminator performance compared to equivalent non-pulsed illuminators when used in combination with fast shutter cameras... Read More
