Excelitas Technologies® Expands its OmniCure® AC Series UV LED Product Family Bringing Higher Irradiance to Fiber Curing Applications

OmniCure AC8225-F+ offers higher output to enable faster curing and enhanced performance.

Excelitas Technologies® Corp., a global technology leader focused on delivering innovative, customized photonic solutions, has expanded its OmniCure® product line with a higher power UV LED curing system for fiber optic coatings.

The new OmniCure AC8225-F+ features a custom optical design that provides outstanding optical performance over longer working distances – a typical requirement for fiber coating processes.  With high peak irradiance and exceptional efficiency, the system supports increased line speeds and enables customers to realize significant cost savings from reduced electricity consumption.

This compact, air-cooled UV LED curing system can be easily integrated into existing or new production lines, and is ideal for optical fiber coating or marking applications, as well as other applications such as display bonding.

The OmniCure AC8225-F+ provides high peak irradiance of up to 16W/cm2  at 10-15mm working distances, as well as superior uniformity for rapid, even curing with greatly reduced power consumption compared to traditional lamp solutions, or other LED products.

It also includes an optional replaceable window for added protection, while supporting the ability to adjoin multiple UV LED systems without compromising on optical uniformity between each curing system.

The foundation of Excelitas’ product development initiatives is to provide OEMs with custom solutions for their specialized applications using the most outstanding, state-of-the-art technologies and performance characteristics possible. This new addition to the OmniCure line is the latest example of Excelitas’ technological innovation. The new OmniCure AC8225-F+ delivers higher irradiance and performance parameters to enhance fiber optic coating applications. As a result, users can significantly lower electrical and equipment maintenance costs while increasing production speeds.
