MERCRON is whole-heartedly dedicated to the machine vision industry, particularly to color imaging, high-speed scanning, and high-resolution QA/QC inspection systems.

Its stock-in-trade is its controlled, precision illumination technology, using specially designed, high-frequency lamp ballasts to convert ordinary, industrial lamps into precision light-sources specifically for Imaging.

MERCRON was founded almost 20 years ago — not merely to drive — but to regulate fluorescent/aperture lamps, including UV and IR, tungsten, metal halide and high-pressure sodium lamps. It offers over 60 semi-custom lamp controllers for these light sources.

MERCRON eliminates 60-cycle ripple and light-level "drift", and with its patented, light regulation feature, it consistently holds the brightness level within 0.25% over time, steady as sunshine; it also provides an alarm when the light is not perfect — so false rejects be gone!

MERCRON enjoys an established reputation for quality, reliability, service, authoritative technical support and, most importantly, for being the most cost-efficient solution to vision's light-related concerns — anywhere from the initial new design through system integration to retrofitting.
