Product Spotlight: CEL5500 Light Engines

DLi’s CEL5500 Compact Embeddable Light Engine is a modular, production-ready projection platform designed to provide users with a multi-functional, ready-to-use DLP® solution. The flexible, scalable architecture of the CEL5500 allows for a variety of illumination configurations to meet research, development and volume production needs. The CEL5500 Light Engines are designed for high-brightness, monochromatic applications such as 3D Printing, Microscopy, Machine Vision and Medical Imaging.

The CEL5500 utilizes the DLP5500 0.55” XGA Chipset enabling pattern rates up to 5,000 Hz binary, 500 Hz 8-bit grayscale, and 60 Hz video. Because the CEL5500 is built on the same DLP5500 Chipset as the best-selling LightCommander™ platform, also known as DLPC200 API, users can speed up development by leveraging the same custom code and projects.

The CEL5500 features onboard pattern storage and is configured with 1x input triggers/2x output syncs for synchronization with cameras and other external devices. Keeping with the modular design capabilities, the CEL5500 includes a standard 37mm threaded projection lens which provides the option to apply off-the-shelf adapters specific to users’ optics requirements.

CELconductor GUI Control Software is also included with the CEL5500. It gives users full control over the DMD without the need for programing. In addition, the Light Animator™ software gives users a way to create, manage and manipulate their library of image sequences.  Images and image sequences can be imported, created and edited with simple drag and drop sequences. These software packages help users skip straight to the innovation phase of their project.

Due to its small portable size, users can easily embed the CEL5500 in medical devices, microscopes, lab instruments, optics tables, and production environments.
