Suite of Metal Halide Fiber-Optic Illuminators for Medical, Industrial Applications


LB24 products are compact, efficient, long-life illumination sources that produce high-quality, daylight-appearing light for delivery via small-diameter fiber bundles. “Our LB24 fiber-optic illuminators provide customers with unmatched value against competitive products and technologies,” said Doug Rutan, Welch Allyn marketing manager. “They generate bright, white light that’s comparable to xenon sources but at a much lower price. And when compared with halogen illuminators, LB24 products produce significantly higher-quality, brighter light, are longer life and more efficient. They’re an ideal option for applications that demand intense, white light at an affordable cost, even for sub-millimeter diameter fibers.”

LB24 fiber-optic illuminators are available in both industrial and medical-certified configurations. The medical series, LB24M, is ideal for applications such as surgical microscopy, endoscopy and surgical device illumination and includes a mandatory power supply. The LB24 industrial series is intended for OEM system integration such as lighting for borescopes, fiberscopes and microscopes and can be operated in portable applications using low-voltage battery packs.

LB24 illuminators produce over 500-lumen output, 5,000°K color temperature, 90+CRI and feature a median lamp life of 500 hours. They measure 5.8 inches x 3.5 inches x 2.8 inches and weigh just 1.2 lbs (2.2 lbs with power supply). For maximum flexibility, LB24 products are available with ACMI and other industry-standard fiber-optic couplers and have a threaded input port for custom adapters. They also feature an internal thermal cutout, double insulation, low electrical noise, full-off light attenuation and a medical-grade UV/IR optical filter. LB24 illuminators for international sale come equipped with an eight-language manual.

All Solarc products are constructed with high-quality materials for optimal light production, and held to precise dimensions to enable simple, repeatable integration. They are backed by Welch Allyn’s world-class customer service and support.
