Excelitas Technologies (Waltham, MA) has announced the addition of the XLM Plus LED Fiber Optic Light Module with Electronics, suitable for integration into endoscopy, surgical microscopy, and headlamp applications. It provides light output comparable to 180 W Xenon sources, and adds the benefits of LED lighting: long life, less heat output than Xenon, and virtually no ultraviolet or infrared radiation, eliminating the need for filtering. The unit includes integrated electronic circuitry for safety alarms, error mode, and power status indicators. The XLM Plus operates on 12V DC or 24V DC input. Light intensity can be varied by constant current and/or by an internal or external pulse width modulation (PWM) signal, which enables users to control light output while maintaining a stable Correlated Color Temperature.
