Capable of verifying up to five LEDs simultaneously, the colorCONTROL MFA-5 from Micro-Epsilon simplifies the inspection of LEDs for their functioning, contrast and luminosity. It can be extended in a modular fashion by adding extra MFA-E modules in batches of 5 channels. The light from the target object is transmitted to the inspection system via a flexible, 2mm diameter, plastic optical fiber and is therefore evaluated dynamically using a color sensor for color and intensity. The color value, which is evaluated within just a few milliseconds, is output as RGB-, HIS or CIE values and then transmitted via USB or RS232 interface at a rate of between 9,600 and 115,200 Baud to a higher level inspection or evaluation system for further processing. In order to ensure a wide measurement range for intensity (illumination) the sensitivity of the sensor can be adjusted by using either “High Sensitivity” or “Low Sensitivity” modes. It is possible to recognise LED colours up to ±4 nm. The installation of the LED inspector is carried out via an included test-software. The recognition results are displayed in detail.

With the April issue, we celebrate the 40th anniversary of IEN Europe. For that occasion we present numerous interesting articles and interviews on technologies that have been groundbreaking over the past decades. An interview with Nexans is on the Evolution of Cables . A technical article by the EMVA on Machine Vision emphasizes the milestones that have been important for the automation industry. A very recent and up-to-date topic, Industry 4.0, is discussed in an Interview with Wibu Systems, a company dedicated to the protection of know-how. IEN Europe April also features a retrospective on Low-voltage Switchgear by Eaton. To celebrate IEN’s 40th anniversary properly, we have a Reader Offer for you, where you can win a high-tech visual IR thermometer. So please celebrate with us and enjoy!
