mk North America back-lit conveyors are used to provide a greater contrast between the product and the conveyor belt. These are typically used in vision inspection applications – both manual and machine controlled. A light panel is mounted into the frame of our GUF-P 2000 series conveyor and emits light through a translucent belt.
mk North America back-lit conveyors feature a 5400 Kelvin color collected illumination source. Natural daylight is at 6000 Kelvin. Practical experience and controlled experimentation has suggested that a light source with a correlated color temperature of 5000 Kelvin (or better) would maintain the necessary white appearance of the illuminated surface under the broadest possible range of conditions.
