UV-Vis Light Source for high measurement consistency

FiberLight is a compact UV-Vis light source designed for mobile spectroscopy applications and all types of handheld devices that require a low power consumption. It has a continuous spectrum covering the whole range from vacuum UV to near Infrared.

The FiberLight System is a complete UV-Vis light source, combining a deuterium lamp, with a 0.25 Watt tungsten lamp, a shutter, optical system and a SMA 905 connector. All elements are mounted on a printed circuit board. Both lamps and the shutter can be separately controlled by a TTL signal. FiberLight requires an external 12 VDC / 600 mA supply.

It is the only light source on the market with such a small size, integrated power supply and a smooth spectrum in the whole UV-VIS range. FiberLight is easy to integrate and handle. With the flexibility of the product and design Heraeus can meet the customers’ needs.

Types and accessories

Depending on your application you can choose between the Basic Version, the Compact Version with a smaller size or the HighPower Version with double UV output.

For an easy integration in your measurement device you can also choose different features like:

  • Aperture Size
  • Window material
  • Connection
  • Light output
  • Shutter

Your advantages

The features of this light source open the way for new solutions in small spectroscopy equipment and UV-Vis optics:

  • Compact size
  • Low power consumption
  • Instant on and instant stability
  • Cyclic operation
  • Extended service life of up to 3 years
  • Separate control of both lamps and shutter
  • Easy coupling to optical fibers, measuring cells and capillaries
  • External control
  • Low heat dissipation

Application areas

F

FiberLight is it the ideal light source for applications with limited space in the equipment, whether stationary, portable / handheld or even battery-driven instruments. Low power consumption, small dimensions and ease of operation open up new possibilities for instrument designers.
