DiCon LED is excited to announce the expansion of available wavelength selections in the LED Microscope Illuminator to include 730nm and 850nm options. These IR wavelengths make DiCon LED's Microscope Illuminator the first such product to be capable of extending its range of use across infrared imaging and microscopy, in applications like non-invasive real-time imaging, IR fluorescence, as well as standard microscopy and machine vision.
Harnessing the benefits of LED technology, including low energy expenditure, low power consumption, and wavelength changing ability, the Microscope Illuminator is a replacement for halogen and tungsten light sources. The multi-channel capabilities of DiCon's high-density LED array allow for instant switching between various wavelength outputs to create contrast or bring out different features in specimens, such as in non-invasive retinal imaging.
The Microscope Illuminator surpasses other LED illuminators in unrivaled user functionality. With the ability to manually adjust pre-programmed color settings and intensity level, or to create customized strobe effects, the user has revolutionary control over the light output. Additionally, through DiCon's LightControl software, the user can program custom light sequences, or "Profiles" that control color, fade, modulation frequency, and duration.
These "Profiles" are then accessible manually after being downloaded into the unit, or they can be externally triggered for syncing with cameras and other peripheral equipment. Dynamic strobing and sequencing effects can also be programmed in real time though the USB-HID interface. From constant single color outputs to special programming effects, the Microscope Illuminator is the ultimate light source for microscopy applications.
DiCon LED distributes the LED Microscope Illuminator through Edmund Optics.
