Fibre-optic LED light sources

LED light sources combine the advantages of LED lighting with the possibilities of a fibre-optic light source.

The strong points of LED light sources

  • Maximum light intensity can be focused on a small surface.
  • Cold light: No heat develops on the object.
  • Great flexibility at a reasonable price: one light source with a wide range of applications (back light, incident light, dark field ring light etc.)
  • Reduced operating cost:
    • 30 000 hours of LED service life
    • no lamp replacement
    • no storage cost for spare lamps
    • no servicing cost
    • no downtimes.

Advantages compared to halogen light sources

  • colour temperature: daylight quality 5 800 K – with filters for adjustment to halogen light
  • long service life of up to 30 000 hours (70% of output brightness, no lamp replacement required)
  • ripple-free and flicker-free
  • infinitely adjustable brightness control
  • no change in colour temperature when dimming
  • wide-range power supply for worldwide use
  • ESD protection
  • compact construction
  • minimum energy use
  • full range of light guides available (goose-neck light guides, flexible light guides, ring lights)
  • robust stable metal housing
  • stable positioning with goose-neck light guides
  • DC operation (no flickering with digital cameras).

Photonic product range

  • F1 corresponds to a 100 W halogen light source..
  • F1 R corresponds to a 100 W halogen light source with remote function via RS-232 interface.
  • F3000 corresponds to a 150 W halogen light source with remote function via USB and foot switch.
  • F3000CRI concerning the spectrum (CRI > 90) and brightness comparable to a Photonic PL3000 150 W halogen light source with remote function via USB and foot Switch.
