SPECTRA Light Engine
The next generation of solid-state illumination is here. In Lumencor’s SPECTRA Light Engine, eight individually addressable solid-state light sources deliver unprecedented performance. Each color band provides on the order of a half a watt of optical power at the distal end of a 3 mm liquid light guide. The constituent light sources include LEDs, Lumencor’s proprietary luminescent light pipes and lasers. The outputs of the sources are refined by bandpass filters and merged into a common optical train directed to the light output port on the front panel. The light output port has a built-in adapter for connection to microscopes and other bioanalytical instruments through a standard, 3 mm diameter liquid light guide. TTL trigger inputs are provided for all eight illumination sources for applications requiring fast output switching.
"Lumencor’s SPECTRA Light Engine “kicks butt” on our expensive microscope."
