Optical Building Blocks Corp. has introduced the KiloArc light source, which delivers more than 100 W in less than an 8-mm-diameter area. In one 489 × 375 × 329-mm package, the light source includes the lamp housing, power supply, starter and a high-efficiency ellipsoidal reflector that delivers 12 times more power than systems using conventional lenses. Either a xenon or xenon-mercury lamp can be used for this 1000-W source. Safety features include a temperature alarm, an airflow sensor and delayed fan shutoff.
