Gardasoft RT800 Series LED Strobe Controllers

The RT 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 need of having to use a bespoke DC power supply or heat sinking the controller. All RT models also include our SafeSense™ technology, which enables the safe overdriving of LEDs. 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 pulse / strobe controllers are current sources, with the RT200 controller range offering two output channels which are independently controlled.

Key features:

  • Compatible with nearly any LED lighting assembly available today
  • Eight independently controlled output channels
  • Push button, Ethernet or RS232 configuration options
  • SafeSense™ technology for safe overdriving
  • SafePower™ for easy installation
  • Small compact unit with optional DIN mounting available
