Advantages over halogen and metal halide lamps include: long life, energy efficient, true “cool light” source, interchangeable fiber optic interface adapter, smaller package, minimal color temperature variation when dimmed and over lifetime, fast warm-up and output stabilization, no high voltage power supply

Coolight Illuminator, LED, Single and Dual Gooseneck

Advantages vs. halogen and metal halide lamps

  • long life
  • energy efficient
  • true “cool light” source
  • interchangeable fiber optic interface adapter
  • smaller package
  • minimal color temperature variation when dimmed and over lifetime
  • fast warm-up and output stabilization
  • no high voltage power supply

Why This Matters

  • Long life  >25,000 hours saves money.  A typical  150W  EKE halogen bulb will require 125 replacements before the LED fiber illuminator reaches 70% of its original light output. At $27.50 *125 the cost for replacement lamps is $3,438.00
  • Long life LED sources are environmentally responsible. Helps keep waste out of landfills.
    Energy use is just one-third that of a 150W halogen.
  • Halogen lamps turn yellow when aged and when dimmed. LED’s provide consistent color temperature throughout their lifetime.
  • LED’s have almost no infrared energy - they are truly a cool light source.A 150W halogen lamp operates between 260°F - 340°F (126°C – 171°C). Halogens can burn plastic fibers and fingers. LEDs are cooler and safer.
  • Halogen lamps transmit IR heat that can damage a sample / specimen.
  • Halogen lamps require costly IR filters that have to be replaced over time.

Complete 59253 and 59254 systems includes:

  • high intensity LED light engine optimized for fiber optic use
  • power stabilized, electronic LED driver
  • variable, manual intensity control
  • universal power supply for 100/240 VAC, 50/60 Hz
  • front panel illuminated on-off switch
  • stackable enclosure with integrated molded handle
  • fiber interface adapters available for large and small diameter fiber optic light guides
  • Built-in, low noise cooling fan
  • Power cord sets for North America, Europe or UK
Flux from fiber optic output * 470 lumens
Flux from fiber optic output** 650 lumens
Flux delivered into fiber optic *** 780 lumens
CRI (color rendering index) 70
CCT (correlated color temperature) 6,000 K typical

*   Coupled into 5 mm fiber optic bundle of NA = 0.6
**  Coupled into 8 mm fiber optic bundle of NA = 0.6
*** Calculated based on fiber optic throughput of 60%

Fiber optics with an active area of 3 mm—10 mm can be used with the LMI-6000; however, output flux will vary based on fiber diameter. Mechanically accommodates ferrules up to 25 mm outer diameter.
