Welch Allyn introduces fibre-optic illuminators for medical applications

26 January 2009

Welch Allyn Lighting Products has introduced the LB24 suite of Sōlarc metal halide fiber-optic illuminators for medical and industrial applications.

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.
