Linear Bar Lights 101
Bar Lights, also known as Linear Array Lights, offer both bright field and dark field illumination, depending on angle of incidence with respect to the object of interest. Because of the variety of lengths available, bar lights are useful for large area illumination when used in opposing pairs or in a picture frame mounting orientation. Linear Array Lights can also be used in replacement of Spot or Ring Lights when greater intensity is required.

Linear Bar Lights

Commonly used for the following lighting techniques
Direct Lighting Technique
The Direct Lighting Technique is a method of directly illuminating an object and is the most frequently used lighting method. It is mainly used for detecting edges such as scratches and cracks on uneven surfaces of objects that are not mirror surfaces. Since it is applied directly to the target object, it is used when brightness is required. Lighting for Direct Lighting is available in various shapes and sizes depending on the shape of the workpiece, such as ring lights, horizontal light, bar light, surface light and line light.
Bright Field Lighting
Bright field lighting is the more commonly applied lighting geometry, which involves mounting and orienting lights between 90 and 45 degrees from the imaging surface (off horizontal)
Dark Field Lighting
The Dark Field Lighting Technique involves orienting lights between 0 and 45 degrees off horizontal, which is particularly effective when imaging highly reflective surfaces or generating edge effects such as detecting scratches, and cracks. Dark Field Lighting is commonly achieved with Bar Lights and Low Angle Ring Lights
