Excelitas Technologies Corp. (Waltham, MA) has released the XLM Plus Fiber Optic Illuminator Module with Electronics. The Light Module has integrated electronic circuitry for safety alarms, error modes, and power status indicators. It also provides circuitry for connection to fiber safety interlocks. In the event that a fiber is removed from the illuminator during use, it can be immediately shut off, protecting the vision of attending medical professionals.
Compliant with IEC/EN 60601-1, the Light Module is powered with 12V or 24V DC. Equipped with multiple intensity control modes, the Light Module offers 0- 100% intensity adjustment via 0-5V analog, RS-232, or auxiliary external control. Intensity varies by constant current and/or via an internal or external Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) signal. The auxiliary external control port also permits direct communication with the illuminator’s internal microprocessor.
The illuminator includes thermal over-temp protection and will shut off the LED prior to exceeding its maximum operating temperature. Prior to shutdown, the circuitry sends error mode notifications.
