I need assistance in the research and development of a lens/reflector/bulb assm. for a replacement application in my industry.
What is the light you are replacing? Can you get me your details on what is needed? Pattern of light? Working distance? Wavelength?
Can anyone recommend one supplier who supplies structured light module or digital line projector, including electonic and driver?
We have a line of LED projectors. the patterns can be etched in any form to project any structured light. link to the information - http://smartvisionlights.com/products/structured-light Please contact me if you want to discuss further.
Do you know of an inspection system to inspect an object under filter 905nm?
If you do want to image with a 905nm light we can investigate a custom wavelength light. Common wavelength IR emitters are 850nm and 940nm. Osram has high power emitters and you can review the spectral emission on their web site. Contact me if you want to investigate the 905nm light.
I am looking for a low cost solution to sort golf balls by make and model. We intend to use OCR as part of this solution. Since most ball manufacturers use alpha/numeric model numbers and logos. The challenge is getting the right orientation of text and logo for reading. Is it possible to read in multiple orientation?
Why not capture the ball in flight? We have looked at a light many different times for an application like this but have not actually built one. Drop the golf ball thru a sphere or a cylinder. Multiple cameras are used to cover the balls surface. The cylinder or sphere is made of white semi-opaque diffuser and is lit by LED's covering the outside of it. This will produce a uniform/homogenous light on the ball (may be a small shadow where there are holes for the cameras to view).
