Welch Allyn introduces fibre-optic illuminators for medical
26 January 2009
Welch Allyn Lighting Products has introduced the LB24 suite of Sōlarc
metal halide fiber-optic illuminators for medical and industrial
LB24 products are compact, efficient, long-life illumination sources
that produce high-quality, daylight-appearing light for delivery via
small-diameter fibre bundles.
“Our LB24 fibre-optic illuminators provide customers with unmatched
value against competitive products and technologies,” said Doug Rutan,
Welch Allyn marketing manager.
“They generate bright, white light that’s comparable to xenon sources
but at a much lower price. And when compared with halogen illuminators,
LB24 products produce significantly higher-quality, brighter light, are
longer life and more efficient. They’re an ideal option for applications
that demand intense, white light at an affordable cost, even for
sub-millimetre diameter fibres.”
LB24 fibre-optic illuminators are available in both industrial and
medical-certified configurations. The medical series, LB24M, is ideal
for applications such as surgical microscopy, endoscopy and surgical
device illumination and includes a mandatory power supply. The LB24
industrial series is intended for OEM system integration such as
lighting for borescopes, fiberscopes and microscopes and can be operated
in portable applications using low-voltage battery packs.
