LED Light Sources for Fluorescence Microscopy and Custom Optical Systems
The LED Light Source is intended for epi-illumination (fluorescence, reflection) or trans-illumination (bright field, phase contrast, DIC) in upright and inverted microscopes and custom optical configurations. It can have a 10W white chip or an up to 5W single-color chip; a wide selection of colors is available. This single compact unit contains the LED chip on a heatsink and a constant current driver; it screws into a collimator, which has a microscope-specific mount. Intensity is controlled manually with a knob; on-off switching can be controlled by a TTL trigger signal. Intensity and uniformity of illumination are characterized by images and acquisition parameters on standard fluorescent slides.
Features and Specifications
Wavelength options: cool white, neutral white, warm white, single color - 365, 385, 395, 405, 457, 460, 470, 523, 567, 590, 623, 660, 740, 850, 940 nm peak. More wavelengths available upon request.
For epi-illumination (fluorescence, reflection) or trans-illumination (bright field, phase contrast, DIC).
A lightweight self-contained unit with integrated driver mounts directly to the microscope port reducing required bench space and cable clutter.
Collimated LED output through Ø30mm aperture.
Aspheric collimating optics provides uniform illumination.
Adjustable focus with focus lock.
Manually variable intensity from zero to full.
TTL input for instant on-off switching (0V-off, 5V-on, BNC connector).
Extra quiet fan for cooler operation, higher and more stable light output.
Can be used for oblique illumination with stereo-microscopes or machine-vision systems.
Requires 12V or 15V DC power supply with barrel connector 5.5mm/2.1mm, + inside, - outside.
Can be powered by a battery and used in the field without power mains.
Size and weight (not including collimator) Ø63mm, 150mm long, 0.4 kg.
Electrical: 120/240V, 50/60Hz.
