1. CCS-EFFILUX Hyperspectral LED Light awarded gold by 2020 Innovators Awards Program

    19 June 2020

    EFFILUX, the innovative provider of LED lighting solutions for machine vision, was recognized among the best in the industry by the judges of the Vision Systems Design 2020 Innovators Awards program for its VIS-NIR hyperspectral LED lighting series, the EFFI-FLEX-HSI, a joint effort between EFFILUX (Paris, France) and mother company CCS Inc. (Kyoto, Japan).

    The proprietary wideband single LED solution has a tunable continuous spectrum from 400 nm to 900 nm which is ideal for hyperspectral imaging applications. This light-source maximizes the benefits of LED technology for hyperspectral imaging without the limitations of using halogen or multiple narrow-band LED solutions and can be built into a wide range of illuminators by the CCS Group, including projectors, bar, ring, and back lights.

    “The Vision Systems Design team would like to congratulate CCS and EFFILUX for being publicly recognized by the esteemed judging panel of the 2020 Innovators Awards program,” says John Lewis, Editor in Chief. “Each year this unbiased and increasingly competitive program aims to celebrate the most innovative products and systems in machine vision, and both teams should be very proud of their accomplishment.”

    CCS and EFFILUX will continue to actively utilizing the technical capabilities of both companies to offer innovative solutions and help customers illuminate what needs to be visible.

  2. Reveal the invisible with EFFILUX PureUV Technology

    04 June 2020

    Reveal the invisible with Effilux PureUV™ Technology

    Fluorescence is the property of some materials to emit light under UV radiation. The radiation is absorbed at a specific wavelength (eg. UV 365nm) and then re-emitted at a longer wavelength (eg. Blue). This phenomenon reveals glue, ink, coatings or any materials with UV optical brighteners.

    Typical application: Detection & inspection of fluorescent printing, polymers, dyes on various objects such as packaging, security strip, glass, etc.

    Go beyond the limit of conventional UV imaging with EFFILUX PureUV™ technology:

    Common Problem 1:
    Unwanted reflection from plastic, glass, metals, etc.

    PureUV™ Technology:
    Anti-reflective property removes glare.

    Common Problem 2:
    Insufficient fluorescence effect and contrast, making it difficult to identify the desired features.

    PureUV™ Technology:
    Enhance fluorescence effect and improve contrast significantly.

    Common Problem 3:
    Lack of powerful & intense illumination for longer working distances.

    PureUV™ Technology:
    Powerful & intense illumination for longer working distances.

    Products with Pure UV technology


    EFFI-FLEX with integrated controller and PureUV™ Technology can be strobed at an increased intensity for even brighter output for high speed inspections.


    PureUV™ Technology can also be built into our EFFI-Sharp, an LED projector that produces powerful and focused beams.

    Effilux also offers a wide range of UV lights in various wavelengths (365nm, 385nm, 395nm, 405nm) and form factors (bar, ring, line, projector), to meet different usage requirements of your machine vision applications.

  12. Reveal the invisible with EFFILUX

    10 Sept 2017

    SWIR (Short Wave InfraRed):

    Most of lightings used in machine vision applications do not allow the detection of certain liquids and / or materials.

    Thanks to "near infrared" lighting (SWIR), it is now possible to reveal these elements.

    Electromagnetic spectrum illustrating the SWIR wavelength range

    Indeed, this spectral range allows to :

    >> See through some materials / objects ( ex : wafer, plastics, organical, ... )
    >> See through smoke
    >> Detect the presence of water / liquid

  23. EFFI-Smart, new LED bar lighting

    April 11, 2016

    EFFI-Smart is a double row high power LED bar available in many wavelengths and in 3 configurations (2 rows of 3, 12 or 36 LED). This is the most powerful solution of EFFILUX (2 times more powerful than the previous LED bar EFFI-Flex).

    Providing IP65 sealing, the product is customizable by the client. He can open it to change the position of the lens (4 positions) and the window (transparent, semi-diffuse and opaline). Therefore, the client controls both the emission angle and the homogeneity/power.

    EFFI-Smart is in some ways the assembly of tricks and technologies of EFFILUX in one product :

    Main characteristics :
    - Available wavelengths : green, blue, red, IR et white
    - Aluminium housing
    - Waterproof IP 65
    - Flexible
    - Adjustable emission angle
    - Chainable: Double I/O connectors
    - Auto strobe PNP or NPN and analogic DIM
    - Many optical accessories (polarizer, diffusers)
