Back Light

Standard front lighting can cause inconsistent and low contrast of a targets features due to shape, color and surface finish. Using a backlight ensures transmission of the light through the target into the camera. If the target is opaque a silhouette is generated creating a trong contrast and outline for stable inspection. Even if a target is transparent it may have a range of densities to it (such as layered material or liquid in a bottle). Contrast can still be achieved through the changes in the absorption and transmission of light in the target.
