Bright, Long-lasting, Tunable Lighting

Kessil Photoredox PR160L

Our G-Series LED illuminators accept most fiber optic light guides and are available in two versions: a space saving pole mount illuminator and a small footprint bench top illuminator. Both versions are available in all three G Series LEDs. The G150 Series comes as either a cost effective 5600K or three temperature model. The G180 Series is available as either a 5600K model, six temperature model, or as a three channel tunable white light CCT with individual RGB channels. Our G250 Series is a high intensity single CCT color temperature model. See why Kessil really is the bright choice in LED illumination for microscopy.

The G250 is the brightest light guide illuminator ScopeLED offers. It is designed to meet the high light output demands of macro zoom as well as life science and industrial microscopy applications. We have engineered even more LED chips into our Dense Matrix LED™ Array to maximize light output while still maintaining the compact and economical design that is characteristic of all ScopeLED products. These densely organized LEDs couple light efficiently into more intensity than that of a standard QH-150W EKE halogen illuminator. And with more than 30,000 hours of LED lifetime regardless of intensity, it will last many times longer. The G250 Series is offered with either a manual intensity knob or 0-6VDC intensity input and in either a table top or pole mount configuration. These models accept most existing light guides, which can be readily incorporated into your system.

Whether your application is biomedical or physical science examination, device inspection, long working distance testing, or assembly, the ScopeLED G250 illuminator will provide the reliable and bright light you need, and in the compact form you want. Furthermore, if your application requires colors or correlated color temperature (CCTs) that are not covered by our standard models, simply contact us and we will be happy to work with you on a custom built color G250. ScopeLED provides optional light guides and ring lights for a complete illumination system.

Applications include machine vision, visual inspection, forensics, biology, and microscopy.

The G180 offers high brightness, tunable correlated color temperature (CCT) and adjustable intensity in a compact, flexible, and convenient package. Different colored LED chips packed into our Dense Matrix LED™ Array couple light efficiently into a light guide, illuminating your sample with selectable colors to enhance contrast, protect wavelength sensitive samples, and optimize viewing comfort. Undesirable light and sample interactions such as photobleaching in fluorescence and unintended curing in photosensitive adhesives can be avoided by selecting a color channel that does not interact with the sample. Eye fatigue, often caused by sustained viewing over long periods of time when performing visual inspection, can also be minimized by selecting the appropriate CCT.

The G180-TW (Tunable White) has six selectable CCTs from 2700K to 6500K, plus two user-programmable settings. The G180-RGB has three individual single-color channels, Red (at 635nm), Green (at 515nm) and Blue (at 475nm), in addition to three CCT whites and two user-programmable settings. The G180-5600K is not color tunable. Different color configurations can also be built to order. It can be mounted either vertically or horizontally and can be automated and synchronized with other hardware via USB or external triggering, making it a great fit for automated production lines and robotics. External trigger inputs enable < 2msec shuttering times for strobe and pulse applications. The ScopeLED G180 combines power, flexibility, and usability in a compact form and is a great choice for your application. ScopeLED provides optional light guides and ring lights for a complete illumination system.

Applications include machine vision, visual inspection, forensics, biology, and microscopy.

The G150 utilizes our unique Dense Matrix LED™ Array and offers high brightness, tunable correlated color temperatures (CCTs) and adjustable intensity in a compact form and at an affordable price. It is as simple to use as a traditional halogen illuminator, but offers the size and cost saving advantages of LED without sacrificing power or spectral quality. By densely packing LEDs, we can efficiently couple light into a light guide and also minimize the physical footprint to save space. The G150 comes in a table top mount configuration.

The Tunable White model allows the user to select from three typical CCT settings; 3000K, 4300K, and 5600K to provide the best clarity and interpretation, with maximum user comfort. Eye fatigue, often caused by sustained viewing over long periods of time - for instance when performing visual inspection - can also be minimized by selecting the appropriate CCT. We are utilizing the G-Series in our own production lines and have found that our users experience significantly less fatigue than before. We have also found that certain features in our samples can be made more apparent with different CCT. It is bright, compact, and quiet, making it perfect for stereo microscope inspection of industrial and electronic parts, biological specimens, forensic evidence, and more. Providing a stable output over its 30,000 hours lifetime, the ScopeLED G150 will give years of reliable operation and is a smart and economical alternative to halogen light guide sources. ScopeLED provides optional light guides and ring lights for a complete illumination system.

As with all ScopeLED G-Series illuminators, the G150 comes in a table top form factor.
