Light Units combination check


  • Strobe lighting. Overdrive specifications.
  • Voltage control during overdrive operation.
  • Strobe time control
  • Strobe time: 1 to 1,000 μs (in steps of 1 μs)
  • Strobe delay: 0 to 1,000 μs (in steps of 1 μs)
  • You can individually control both brightness and flash duration.
  • Ethernet and parallel communications
  • Continuous lighting under PWM control
  • Storable Scenes
  • Two channels
  • Sets of parameters related to light control can be registered.
  • The light intensity can be set to one of 512 levels. Output voltage: 24 to 48 VDC

Registering Scenes (sets of parameters)

You can register sets of parameters called scenes that consist of the light control settings for the two channels.
By just applying a scene to the channels, you can easily change the settings. Up to 10 scenes can be registered. Refer to the Instruction Guide for details.

Compatible with More Than 700 Models Light Units

These Light Units support strobe lighting using overdrive. They emit light brighter than that of continuous lighting.

For information on possible combinations of Light Units with a POD-series Control Unit, refer to POD-5024-2-PEI.

What Is "Overdrive"?

Overdrive is used to emit brighter light by applying a high voltage to an LED Light Unit only for flashes shorter than 1 ms. This voltage exceeds the voltage for continuous lighting.


Strobe time

For manual control and Ethernet communications:

1 to 1,000 μs(in steps of 1 μs)1,002 to 3,000 μs(in steps of 3 μs)

For parallel communications:
High range: 3 to 3,000 μs(in steps of 3 μs), Low range: 1 to 1,000 μs (in steps of 1 μs)

4 channels with 6 connectors

Light connectors

  • Four SM connectors (L1, L2, L3, and L4 channels)
  • Two EL connectors (L1 and L2 channels)
Note: The Light Units corresponding to the L1 or L2 channel operate in the same way.

Trigger Link Function

You can make the Light Units on more than one channel flash linked to a trigger signal that is input through one of the pins in the trigger input connector.


Strobe time

For manual control, Ethernet communications, and parallel communications

1~1,000μs(in steps of 1 μs)

2 channels with 2 connectors

Light connectors

  • Two SM connectors (L1 and L2 channels)

A Specification Difference between POD-5024-2-PEI and POD-22024-4-PEI

In POD-22024-4-PEI (4-channel model), the lighting mode setting (Overdrive or PWM) is applied to all channels. Please note that the setting cannot be individually specified for each channel as in POD-5024-2-PEI (2-channel model).

Using the POD Series

"I don't want to change the camera settings.
I want to adjust only the brightness of the Light Unit."

Switching the scene according to the inspection item.

A new function added to the 4-channel model for implementing varied lighting style

Trigger Link Function
You can make the Light Units on multiple channels turn ON (or OFF) with a single trigger signal that is input through one of the pins of the trigger input connector.

Simultaneous control of Light Units
installed in four directions

Individual control of multiple Light Units for
different inspections

How to Check Lighting Connection Combinations

Light Units combination check

Make sure that the total input current of the connected Light Units is no more than the output current of the Control Unit.
