The PF Series from CCS and CCS America is a collection of high-power LED strobe lights and controllers that represents their “power flash” technology.  It was developed to support manufacturing processes needing high-speed imaging due to fast-moving parts, as well a lot of required lighting. 

What sets a PF Series solution apart from other solutions is its extreme light output, up to 7 million lux; super-fast strobe times that can range from 1 to 100 microseconds; special high-output LED lights with dedicated control units that are available with 4 channels; ethernet & parallel interfaces; 512 light levels; delay function; and high brightness comparable to xenon flash lamps, but without all of their drawbacks.  A PF Series solution achieves a brightness that is at least 8 times greater than strobe lighting in conventional products.

Run your line faster with the PF Series. With a higher brightness compared to xenon lighting and 48 models available in a variety of lighting types, you can have a solution that is optimized to eliminate image blur.  What this means is a manufacturing line using PF Series lighting and controllers can potentially run up to 14 times faster, compared to conventional lighting. 

The PF Series is typically applied to: 

  • Electronics part manufacturing 

  • Can and bottle manufacturing 

  • Food inspection 

  • Pharmaceutical inspection 

  • Cosmetics manufacturing 

  • Metal parts manufacturing 

  • Printing and label inspection 

  • Containers 

  • 2D code reading
