Smart Vision Lights (SVL) announces that its DoAll multifunctional light — which comprises six different machine vision lights — has received UR+ certification from Universal Robots. 

UR+ offers systems integrators and end users an ecosystem of certified products designed specifically for use with Universal Robots’ collaborative robots, or cobots. All UR+ certified products undergo rigorous testing to validate compatibility with UR cobots. With UR+ certification, the DoAll is programmable through the included DoAll Light Manager, which is now available directly on the robot’s teach pendant. 

The DoAll combines six machine vision lights into one multifunctional solution and is mounted at the end of a robotic arm. By combining a dome light, low-angle dark field ring light, mid-angle dark field ring light, RGBW ring light, four-quadrant ring light, and NIR ring light, the DoAll delivers a nearly limitless combination of lighting options, making it ideal for performing multiple inspections where optimal lighting configurations differ by inspection type. In addition, the DoAll addresses the growing need for flexibility and ease of use in today’s automation systems. 

In addition, the DoAll light can be deployed for applications involving specialized lighting implementations, including multispectral imaging. In that case, the light can be deployed alongside a grayscale camera and can leverage its RGBW, NIR, and UV wavelength capabilities to capture images beyond the visible wavelength. With a four-zone multi-drive LED driver, the DoAll light can also be used in photometric stereo imaging applications, which require the capture of multiple images from different illumination angles to extract features whose height varies from that of surrounding surfaces. Such applications include reading raised letters on tires for identification purposes.
