LED Fiber Optic Illuminator
DÜSSELDORF, Germany, Nov. 17, 2010 — For integration by OEMs into endoscopy, surgical microscopy and headlight applications, PerkinElmer Inc. has launched an environmentally friendly LED fiber optic illuminator module.
The OTFI-0250 offers many advantages for the surgical environment including bright, highly uniform illumination, allowing surgeons to see images more clearly in the operating room, leading to better and earlier detection and diagnosis.
The solid-state LED module produces virtually no ultraviolet or infrared emissions. Its good thermal management enables high-intensity light output and long life.
The company says that the illuminator module is based on LED technology with a usable life that is up to 50 times longer than conventional high-intensity-discharge lamps. In addition to patent-pending LED technology, it incorporates precision optics, an integrated state-of-the-art thermal management system and electromagnetic interference shielding.
The RoHS-compliant device has both metric and imperial mechanical mounting fasteners and special flange-mounted optical alignment features for easier integration with an OEM’s own fiber coupling.
