Metaphase Technologies launches configurable 3D CAD catalog of LED illuminators
Engineers can now customize LED components to fit designs through a new, online configurator
Metaphase Technologies, a US manufacturer of LED illuminators and lighting solutions, has recently launched an all-new catalog of configurable LED products. Built by CADENAS, the new tool makes it faster and easier for manufacturing engineers to source the correct lighting product for their application.
Metaphase Technologies designs and manufactures LED illuminators for machine vision, military, and specialty lighting applications. Their products have a variety of features and options which ensure accurate performance and fit for all applications. Previously, engineers would call or email the sales team to discuss the application requirements and work together to select the correct product. Now, these capabilities are available for engineers online and on-demand.
“Engineers loved how many configuration options these products had, but they did not always understand everything that was available to them. By providing self-service access, engineers can explore the options and see updates to the products visually. This dramatically streamlines the specification process. You do not need to know our business; you just need to know what you’re looking for,” Paul Proios, Product Manager at Metaphase Technologies, said.
Native CAD models and PDF data sheets
Metaphase Technologies’ new tool also enables engineers to test the product in their design by downloading CAD models in more than 120 native and neutral formats. “We’re really excited about the opportunity to grow our reach by providing configured CAD models in so many native formats. This will ensure our audience has accurate data to test within their designs,” Proios added.
The online catalog will also deliver PDF datasheets, complete with configured product details and an interactive 3D preview. “It’s not only about our engineering customers. We know purchasing departments need configured product data as well, so we are also delivering that data as PDF documents. Now anyone with Adobe Acrobat can see the 3D model and review all the configured specs,” Proios continued.
