High power LED from Ultrafine brings portability to endoscopes
27 July 2012
The powerful new SPL.5 LED light source from Ultrafine Technology liberates endoscope users from having to carry around a bulky light source and battery pack. Containing a rechargeable battery, the compact light handle simply screws into any standard fitting endoscope to provide unprecedented portability.
Although the light source is only 90 mm in length, its advanced LED technology makes it extremely bright, being more powerful than a 150 W halogen bulb. This increases its operating range and makes inspection more effective.
"Inspection can only be as good as the light available," said Ultrafine's John Patterson. "If there's not enough light you can't do the job."
The SPL.5 is particularly suitable for use with endoscopes in the security industry, where portability is an essential requirement. The advantage also applies to industrial customers where there is a need to move around different areas of a plant.
The light intensity of 20 000 lux is adjustable, with the battery providing an operating time of 45 min at full power. Lamp life is typically 50 000 h, and a charger and spare battery are included.
