Stocker & Yale Inc. introduces the Mille Luce™ Model 1000 Fiber Optic Illuminator. The Mille Luce™ offers a 500 percent increase in lamp life over other EKE and EKE-HC, 150-watt quartz halogen lamps. It provides 1,000 hours of shadow-free, glare-free, cool illumination without any significant loss in light output.
The Mille Luce™ is designed to withstand the rigors of virtually all microscopy and machine-vision system applications, including assembly, inspection, and medical-laboratory analysis. A high-impact, polymer housing protects the internal components, which use state-of-the-art, mechanical-engineering principles to provide cooler surface temperatures, minimal fan-vibration noise, and a lightweight, compact unit.
The Mille Luce™ eliminates the problems of slipping and rotating fiber-optic goosenecks with a quick-change, positive-locking nosepiece. A slide potentiometer allows the user to adjust lamp intensity from 0 to 100 percent, and optional iris-dimming is available when a constant color temperature is required. Users also will benefit from base-mounting and multi-unit stacking capabilities, a separate on/off switch, an integrated handle, an internal IR filer, and easy lamp change.
