LED Light Source replaces halogen technology.
July 26, 2011 -
Suited for large active diameter industrial applications, High Power LED Light Source couples light from monocolor matrix die into fiber optic cable. Resulting output exceeds EKE halogen lamp in active diameter sizes up to 12 mm. Unit offers 6,000 K color temperature, stable output throughout usable life, and active heat management with integral cooling fan. With optional Ethernet and RS485 connectivity, user can control pulsing, overdrive, and timing values over Internet in real-time.

Fiberoptics Technology Inc. (FTI) Announces Completion of a High Power LED Light Source Project
POMFRET, CT, - Fiberoptics Technology Inc. (FTI) announces completion of a high power LED light source project for large active diameter industrial applications.
The patent pending device will be certified by ETL under the UL lab/industrial protocol, and will be CE certified. The unit is being manufactured at the company's new electronic assembly facility in Pomfret CT. FTI began designing and manufacturing light source products in 2004.
Using a very simple but effective coupling strategy, FTI engineers can couple the light from a monocolor matrix die into a fiber optic cable at high efficiency rates. The resulting output exceeds the power of a similarly coupled EKE halogen lamp in active diameter sizes up to 12mm.
The product offers true color balance, excellent uniformity, improved electrical efficiency, with the same footprint as existing halogen lighting technology, Users can replace older halogen technology without altering existing systems or components.
"After nearly 4 years of research and development, our team has made a second important breakthrough; an LED source capable of generating more photonic output than an EKE lamp at the full 12mm spot size. This will enable our customers to update their industrial process and vision systems with a long lived, bright, and dependable source, eliminating down time associated with lamp change. I believe the introduction of this unit signals the beginning of the end for the traditional 150W Quartz Halogen source.", and more importantly, a new era of importance for fiber based illumination systems.", said Walt Seagrave, the company's Product Manager responsible for the product's development.
FTI's LED light technology provides the following features:
o More power than an EKE lamp within a 12mm focal spot.
o Long life (50000) hours - no lamp to change.
o Stable output throughout the usable life.
o Active heat management with integral cooling fan.
o Optional communication package with Ethernet and RS485 connectivity. - you control functionality; set pulsing, overdrive, and timing values over the internet in real time.
o 6000K color temperature.
The company is in the starting phases of production, and should have units available for evaluation within 4 weeks.
