The Gardasoft VCT6 lights provide a very powerful LED strobe illumination for OEMs creating ITS solutions, and can be ordered as complete with IP65 housing (VCT6) or board-only version (VCT6-T20).

Using the highest high power LED technology available, the VCT6 system supplies up to 500W pulses to the LED array. It is fully integrated with internal timing, intensity control, trigger input and long distance communications.

The illuminators are available in Board format or compact IP65 rated housings allowing for flexibility of OEM development design and installation in very harsh environments if required. All VCT6 products are RoHS compliant.

VCT6 lights are available in a range of wavelengths and beam angles to match applications with their unique imaging requirements. IR wavelengths for non-invasive applications: White light plus other visible wavelengths are available when specific or additional vehicle/driver details are required.

VCT6-T20 Board-only version

VCT6-T20 Board-only version

A trigger input signal is available to synchronise the lighting pulse with camera exposure, and the VCT6 can optionally be operated in a free-running mode from a programmable internal timer.
