EFFI-Flex adjustable beam angle LED bar.

The EFFI-Flex LED bar is equipped with high power LEDs , it provides multiple solutions in a single light by offering different lens positions.

It is available in a variety of colors, compact and easy-to-mount due to its industrial profile. Thanks to the different diffusers and optical accessories, the EFFI-Flex offers direct, low-angle or diffused lighting suitable for many machine vision applications, robotics, logistics, etc.

  • Flexibility in the choice of diffuser and emission angle (from 90° to 10°) to find the right compromise between power, illuminated area and uniformity
  • Integrated controller with Auto-Strobe feature allowing for 300% increased intensity while being strobed when compared to continuous mode.
  • A Robust design for applications in harsh environments

- Auto-Strobe Version (Standard) -

> Connectivity

The EFFI-Flex requires 24V DC input power via an M12 – 4 pins connector. Note the trigger pin needs to be connected either to the 24V DC signal for Continuous mode or to a PNP Trigger signal for Overdrive strobe mode.

Connections 4 Pin EFFI-Flex for industrial vision and quality control.

> Option: NPN connection

On request, Effilux can wire the pin 2 of the M12 connector for use in NPN [trigger on falling edge] for the Auto-Strobe.
In this case, Lighting on if VNPN < 1.5V DC.

Part number : EFFI-FLEX-[...] - NPN

- Option: ELS Mode -


The standard product (Auto-Strobe) is not dimmable, EFFILUX offers an alternative electronic configuration suitable for continuous use and linescan applications. This version allows the intensity to be controlled according to the input signal (AIC): ELS Mode.

> Connection

- The EFFI-Flex with ELS driver requires 24V DC input power via an M12 – 4 pins connector. Note the AIC pin needs to be connected either to the 24V DC signal for 100% maximum intensity or to an Analog Intensity Control signal for adjusted intensity
