SkyBeam Product Summary

The SkyBeam is a high-intensity, cool-operation LED spotlight curing system widely used in benchtop and automated production lines. The system includes a long-life light guide and supports up to four independently operating light guides with a variety of lens types. Weighing only 3.25 lbs., the unit features easy to use exposure time controls, foot pedal activation and a built-in power supply, which eliminates the need for an external power adaptor.

Additional Details

Four irradiation channels: Four independent irradiation channels each offer a 0–999.9 second exposure timer and 10–100% power adjustment range. Each channel’s UV light spot size can be adjusted by replacing the optical lens at the end of its light guide, and the service life of each irradiation channel is independently recorded.

External control interface: The system can be remotely monitored and controlled using isolated logic signals available at the rear panel terminals. The digital logic functions allow high-speed control of the SkyBeam for applications requiring a direct interface with machine controllers or PLCs. Control signals include LEDs on/off and a safety interlock that disables LEDs for operator protection. Monitoring signals include system ready, LEDs on and system alarm. An RS232 port is also provided for serial communication with PCs and PLCs.

Long-life flexible light guides: The cable of the UV LED light guides is a two-meter flexible robot cable, tested to over 10 million bending cycles. Four wavelengths are available, including 365, 385, 395 and 405nm.

Cool operation: Both convection cooling and fan cooling UV LED light guides are offered. The fan cooling type has better heat dissipation and is suggested for continuous operation. The UV LED light guide has a built-in temperature sensor that monitors the temperature and prevents the light guide from overheating. The aluminum controller housing is fully sealed to prevent contamination and ensure long system life.

Security key switch: The system comes with a security key switch that prevents operators from making unauthorized changes to the approved running parameters.
