LED Lights Keep Improving

Not long ago, LED lights were a relative unknown in consumer circles. They were used only for very specific industrial and commercial purposes. However, LEDs have seen a great resurgence – powered, at first, by an embrace of their efficiency and low-heat performance. Now, they appear in cutting-edge machine vision systems with increasing regularity.
