OptiLux is the next generation fiber optic illuminator brought to you by LuxteL; a leader in the field of fiber optic illumination. The OptiLux is a LED device well suited for several platforms. It utilizes a single large area LED chip, custom collection optics that brilliantly couple light into 3- to 6mm fiber optic bundles, a heat sink and fan, linear intensity control and an AC power supply. The OptiLux was developed to replace older technologies; specifically halogen and metal halide lamps and their associated problems with changes in color temperature due to intensity setting and age. The new LED device also eliminates the life and safety disposal issues with the passé mercury lamps.
