In early 2018, Photonic will be introducing F6000-M, the brightest endoscopy light source currently available on the market. The new model will be setting new standards with innovative functions like a cascadable current driver and next-generation LEDs.
The F6000-M endoscopy light source by Photonic promises to deliver no less than a 100% light increase compared to other modules now available in this sector of the market. “As a strategic partner of renowned LED manufacturers, we are one of the first suppliers to obtain innovative next-generation LEDs. In combination with our new cascadable current drivers for extremely high LED currents, the high-end cooling system, and the optical Iight coupling, we have managed to achieve light fluxes of over 2,500 lumens at the fibre optic output”, explains Photonic Product Manager Christoph Csekö. After around one year of development, the F6000-M now exceeds even 300-watt xenon light sources while also offering lifecycle cost savings of well above EUR 15,000 Euros per module. Moreover, thanks to the cascadable current driver, it is possible to achieve the redundancies specifically required in medical technology. As a result, both manufacturers and users can look forward to a significant improvement in quality.
A modular setup, minimum ripple and flicker-free dimming
The F6000-M module was developed specifically for application in medical endoscopy and microscopy. Especially in these areas, endoscopes are becoming increasingly thin, thus requiring greater light density. Thanks to its modular setup, the F6000-M can be individually adjusted to the customer’s requirements and be integrated in every existing lighting system. In addition, its innovative LED technology allows for a minimal ripple and flicker-free dimming. For users, this means that brightness is adjusted using LED current and that the light remains on without interruptions. This virtually rules out any disruptions. Brightness can be adjusted in 100 steps down to extremely small LED currents. As a result, the module is also suitable for use in lighting systems specifically designed for camera applications.
