BOXBOROUGH, Mass., July 22, 2012 — Dolan-Jenner Industries has announced the availability of its Fiber-Lite model LMI-6000 LED fiber optic illuminator, which is designed to support a variety of microscopy, medical research and general in-laboratory studies, as well as OEM custom lighting, assembly and inspection equipment applications.
The company says that the illuminator offers higher output than comparable 150-W halogen lighting sources while using up to 64% less energy. Its design incorporates long-life bright-white LEDs with a color temperature of 6000 K and up to 780 lm at the fiber interface (8-mm diameter). The LEDs provide >25,000 h of continuous light, generating negligible amounts of heat.
The maintenance-free LEDs eliminate concern over halogen bulb burnouts, fuse failures and worn lamp sockets. The LMI-6000 is offered with a linear, 15-step light-intensity control and universal voltage input of 100 to 240 VAC, with available UK-, mainland Europe- and North America-compatible line cords.
Designed with microscopy applications in mind, and with direct compatibility with most of the company’s other fiber optic products, the LMI-6000 supports and fully illuminates gooseneck and annular ringlight fiber optic lightguides, and features an integrated handle, stackable housing and a small overall footprint. A series of quick-change adapters is available. The device is RoHS-compliant and CE-certified.
