JULY 8, 2009--A new LED fiberoptic illuminator offers an alternative to halogen-based and metal-halide fiberoptic illuminators for medical and industrial lighting. The illuminator exceeds the brightness levels of 150-W halogen technology while using 50% less power. It uses a proprietary optical light engine designed to couple high-intensity white light into 3-10-mm fiberoptic bundles for applications including endoscopy, microscopy, and machine vision. In contrast to other light sources, the color temperature of the LED light does not change when the light is dimmed or increased.
