Powerline AC/IC & LED powerdrive IC

The Powerline AC/IC 820 is a high intensity, air cooled LED array that is ideal for curing UV and visible light curable adhesives and coatings. Producing intensity up to 8,000 mW/cm², the AC/IC 820 contributes to very fast curing cycles. Two standard sizes are available: 82 mm x 20 mm and 122 mm x 20 mm. These arrays can be stacked to form larger irradiation areas with no intensity gaps. The Powerline AC/IC 820 LEDs have a typical service life of > 20,000 hours, and are available in 365, 385, 395, and 405 nm wavelengths.

LED Powerline AC/IC

LED Powerline AC/IC is an air cooled high-performance UV LED array that delivers high intensity light energy for the curing of photo-reactive adhesives, sealants, and masks. The LED Powerline AC/IC is available in wavelengths of 365/385/395/405 nm +/- 10 nm. This variety allows to adjust the wavelength perfectly to any application.

Integrated air-cooling guarantees a reliable continuous operation over the whole ambient temperature area, without depending on huge external heat exchangers. For larger irradiation widths, LED Powerlines are stackable without gap to any lengths.

The power supply and control of the LED Powerline AC/IC can be accomplished by either by the optionally available LED power drive IC, or by using an external (48 volt) power supply and PLC signals.

Special features
  • Integrated Controller
  • Driving and monitoring of each LED segment
  • Monitoring of LED segments regarding short-circuit, interruption and excess temperature
  • Recording of the operating hours
  • Analogue dimming of the segments via a 0-10 V-signal
  • Digital PLC interface (Emergency-Stop, LED-on, LED-error, temperature monitoring)
  • Bus control of all modules via RS485 or optional LED powerdrive IC
Applications

The LED Powerline AC/IC is appropriate for various applications, such as:

  • Bonding, potting, or encapsulating of components and assemblies found in the electronics, optical, or medical device industries.
  • Fluorescence stimulation for materials testing; also suitable for automatic image processing
  • High-intensive UV irradiation in the chemical, biological and pharmaceutical sector

LED powerdrive IC

LED powerdrive IC (Integrated Controller)

The LED powerdrive IC allows the independent operation of up to 3 LED Powerline AC/IC. Two versions are available:

  • the LED powerdrive IC 400 can drive one LED Powerline AC/IC 820 or alternatively up to three Powerlines AC/IC 410.
  • the LED powerdrive IC 1200 can drive three LED Powerline AC/IC 820 or alternatively up to three Powerlines AC/IC 410.

The adjustment of the irradiation time is freely selectable in the ranges of 0.01 – 99.99 sec. or 0.1 – 999.9 sec or 1 – 9999 sec. Alternatively, continuous operation can be chosen.

The operating status and the temperature of the LED seg- ments as well as the irradiation time can be seen on the display at a glance. The electrical LED power can be adjusted between 2 % and 100 % in 1 %-steps.

The device is recording the LED operating hours and the service menu gives comprehensive information about the current operation status.

In addition the LED powerdrive IC is characterized by the following features:

  • Large and clear display with all relevant information
  • Intelligent power control
  • Temperature / error control of LED
  • Shortest cycle time (0.01 s when set on display/100 µs in case of external activation)
Special features
  • Monitoring of LED segments regarding short-circuit, interruption and excess temperature
  • auto recognition of connected LED Powerline AC/IC
Interfaces

The LED powerdrive IC has the following interfaces:

  • Analog preselected target value 0.2V – 10V ≙ 2% – 100% • PLC inputs: LED on, LED enable
  • PLC outputs: LED is on, LED is off, LED error, LED warning • Dry relais contact function (see PLC outputs)
  • Foot switch
  • Release safety circuit (= LED enable)
Advantages of the LED technology

LEDs do not emit IR radiation. Even temperature-sensitive materials can be irradiated. The different spectra guarantee safe and fast curing. As LEDs do not require a warm-up phase, LED heads can be switched on and off without any problems: they are ready for immediate operation. The typical service life of a LED is longer than 20,000 hours**.>/p>
