Electronic Filter Control for Vision Cameras
Electronic Filter Control (5LEF) adds the ability to disable the camera’s standard infrared filter by switching it off from the FinishLynx software.
All Vision-series cameras are equipped with an infrared filter. This is critical in producing quality images with optimal color balance. However, in extreme low-light conditions, turning off the electronic filter using the 5LEF upgrade can allow a little bit of extra light to hit the image sensor.
Note that switching the filter off should be used as a last resort solution, after opening the iris and increasing LuxBoost.
NOTE: The Electronic Filter Control comes standard with all Vision PRO (5L600) cameras and is available as an upgrade for Vision (5L500) cameras.
