Light Source Illuminator

Medical LED Light Source

The Optilux Light Source Illuminator is well-suited for various platforms, featuring a single large-area LED chip, custom collection surgical optics for optimal light coupling into 3 to 6mm fiber optic bundles, a heat sink, fans, linear intensity control, and an AC power supply. Developed to replace outdated technologies like halogen and metal halide bulbs, the OptiLux Light Source eliminates color temperature changes, age-related issues, and safety disposal concerns associated with mercury lamp bulbs. This makes it an excellent choice for phasing out older lamps, ensuring reliable and efficient medical illumination.

The major benefits of the OptiLux Fiber Optic Illuminator are its ability to reduce power consumption by up to 50% and long life; up to 50,000 hours chip life leading to reduced cost of ownership. No significant wavelengths are generated outside the desired range, making wavelengths and color temperature tailored for your application. The front panel displays the intensity and has soft tactile up / down buttons providing total intensity control ranging from 10 to 100%. An 8ft x 0.2 inch fiber light guide cable provides 130K lux when used with our 6000°K chip.


Applications for the Fiber Optic
LED Light Source


The OptiLux LED Light Source is designed to be a perfect partner in medical video camera illumination, endoscopy, microscope illumination, and photo-sensitive applications such as UV curing and dental whitening due to the OptiLux’s lack of both ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) radiation. Available with mobile stand or as a tabletop version.
