OPTEK - LED Lighting

OPTEK LED Lighting

For machine vision and general illumination in microscopy applications, OPTEK offers a series of Constant Current, Microprocessor Based LED Controllers as well as a variety of LED illuminators for microscope and machine vision applications. These modern lighting solutions provide exceptional performance without the heat, bulky fiber-optic bundles, or frequent bulb replacement of tungsten-halogen lamps. OEM pricing is available for quantity orders.

LED Lighting Characteristics to Note: The life expectancy of LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) is as great as 50 times that of the tungsten-halogen lamps normally associated with fiber-optic illumination. LEDs also dissipate minimal heat. Therefore no noisy, vibrating fans are required and the illuminated sample will not distort from heat.

Quadrant Lighting: Allows selective illumination from North, South, East, and West directions. Each quadrant has a large number of LEDs for uniform illumination of the sample. As compared to typical angled illuminators that utilize several fiber-optic bundles, in the Quadrangle Illuminator each individual LED contributes a small percentage of the overall light. Therefore, the specular component is minimized. This yields a superior, 'flat-field' image.

RING LIGHT (LENS MOUNTED) - 40 Lamp Module

-->

This 40 Lamp module mounts directly to many of today's machine vision fixed and Zoom style lenses. Adapters for several lens configurations are available. When ordering, please ask about your lens. The RING LIGHT can accommodate the (Lens Mounted) Quadrangle light described below.

OPTEK P/N 7100-2737
Dimensions 3.625" ID (to LEDs) X 5.0" OD X 1.0" h
Specifications 1 Amp (240 mA/quadrant), 8 pin micro CPC, 5mm White LED, 5500°K

QUADRANGLE TOP ILLUMINATOR (LENS MOUNTED) - 96 Lamp Module

This White Light, 96 lamp, 4 Quadrant, module mounts to the 7100-2737 unit described above and can be height-adjusted to optimize the video image with essentially dark field illumination. The LEDs are mounted to illuminate at a shallow angle to the surface, minimizing glare from reflective horizontal surfaces.

OPTEK P/N 7100-2743
Dimensions 3.625" ID (to LEDs) X 5.0" OD X 1.0" h
Specifications 1 Amp (240 mA/quadrant), 8 pin micro CPC, 5mm White LED, 5500°K

QUADRANGLE TOP ILLUMINATOR (LARGE) - 192 Lamp Module

This 192 lamp, 4 Quadrant module can be used with microscopes, video measurement and inspection devices as well as off-the-shelf powered and manual Zoom Lenses. The bottom ring shines inward at 7.5 degrees from horizontal, converging at a working distance of 0.1". The top ring shines downward at 70 degrees, converging at a 2.2" working distance. This module requires independent mounting, as it is too large to mount directly to the lens.

OPTEK P/N 9108-0092
Dimensions 2" ID X 5.0" OD X 1.5" h
Specifications 640 mA (160 mA/quadrant), 8 pin micro CPC, 5mm White LED, 5500°K

PROFILE ILLUMINATOR (LARGE) - 64 Lamp Module

These 64 lamp modules provide a high-intensity, homogeneous back-light for the profile illumination of specimens.

OPTEK P/N 9108-0090(White) 9108-0101(Red) 9108-0102(Green)
Dimensions 3.188 w X 2.438" d X .75" h
Specifications 320 mA, 21 VDC, 5500°K
