ANPR Light Requirements
Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) systems are used extensively by policing and law enforcement authorities and are now being used to monitor areas such as car parks, congestion zones and toll booths. These systems must quickly and accurately identify vehicles through the use of optical character recognition (OCR). This growing market requires lighting solutions that can perform in demanding environmental conditions, with variable lighting (day, night, inclement weather) and, when mobile, having the ability to withstand movement and vibration.
ProPhotonix LED lights are ideal for use in ANPR systems due to their long lifetimes, availability in a range of wavelengths, robust design and suitability for strobing.
Chip-On-Board LED Technology
Compact lighting is advantageous, as in addition to reducing the system size, it allows for the light to be placed close to the cameras maximizing the light reflected from the number plate. ProPhotonix’ strength in Chip-on-Board technology allows us to produce extremely bright and compact illuminators to suit your requirements.
ANPR illuminators must also be robust, particularly if being used in a mobile system, and long lasting as maintenance once the system has been installed would be costly. ProPhotonix provides robust illuminators capable of operating for long lifetimes in the harshest of environments. A wide variety of wavelengths are available
ProPhotonix supplies some of the leading Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) systems manufacturers with LED illumination. ProPhotonix SpecBright™ Spotlights are used as illuminators for ANPR systems and ProPhotonix also supplies custom solutions to meet specific customer requirements.
