Innovations in Optics, has launched LumiBright FC fiber-coupled LED light engines, the company’s new product line. These solid-state light sources are both vibrant and versatile and therefore provide brilliant fiber optic lighting in laboratory, industrial, and medical equipments.
Lasers and arc lamps are effectively replaced by LEDs in majority of technical applications, where they serve to be both affordable and efficient fiber-illumination sources. LEDs eliminate the need for user safety precautions and recurrent replacement, besides reducing high acquisition costs.
Though monochromatic and powerful, lasers are costly and available in limited wavelengths. For broadband emission, Arc lamps require numerous optics and expensive spectral filters. However, for heat management and protection from ozone generation or ultraviolet exposure, additional investments are required.
The new LumiBright FC fiber-coupled LED light engines can effectively replace arc lamps and lasers and produce bright illumination for UV curing, industrial borescopes, phototherapy, microscopes, medical endoscopy, and machine vision. In addition, it has can be incorporated in OEM life science instrumentation such as ELSD detectors for HPLC, cytometers, gel and blot imagers, microplate readers, real-time PCR systems, gene array readers, colony counters, and Surface Plasmon Resonance SPR- equipped label-free systems.
LumiBright FC light engines consists of patented non-imaging optics in addition to single or multicolored high brightness LED arrays existing in 365 nm spectral distribution range and beyond, across the broadband white and near-infrared. The smallest footprint of industry enables simplified incorporation into OEM or end-user systems of varied designs such as rack mounted, table-top, or handheld devices.
Additional advantages of LumiBright FC light engines feature high durability, strong and stable optical power, energy efficiency, low maintenance and short warm-up time. Models compatible with fiber active core diameters between 1 and 8 mm are available. Driver/controllers, wire harnesses, thermal management devices are the components of light engine system.
