Gardasoft RC Series LED Lighting Controllers

The RC range is Gardasoft’s latest generation of LED lighting controller solutions for machine vision applications. Implementing our patented SafePower™ technology, installation is very easy, removing the needs of perhaps having to use a bespoke DC power supply or heat sinking the controller. All RC models also include our SafeSense™ technology. To get the very best out of your LED lighting solution, in terms of brightness stability and control, lighting should be driven from a current source, not a nominal voltage supply. The Gardasoft RC Series controllers are therefore single channel current source devices.

Key features:

  • Entry level controllers
  • Single channel LED control
  • Push button and Ethernet configuration options
  • SafeSense™ technology for safe overdriving
  • SafePower™ for easy installation
  • Compatible with nearly any LED lighting assembly available today
