A leader in the machine vision lighting industry since 1993, Advanced Illumination has paved the way for many technologies in machine vision. AI developed Evenlite™ Technology, a proprietary structured lighting system; powered LEDs are aimed at a targeting fixture and then affixed into position.

AI was the first company to “Overdrive” LEDs in strobed mode; with active duty cycle control, very short, high current pulses are utilized to drive an LED with up to 50X the nominal steady-state current. This concept has appeared from other manufacturers, but AI started it.

AI products are uniquely qualified to solve your lighting problems. Simply stated, their products reduce or eliminate issues you may encounter when you implement a factory automation lighting solution.
