ILD-C

The ILD-C runs the ILD-2 or ILD-3 at their peak current, ensuring their brightest and safest performance, with no drop off over time. It also offers brightness control and prolonged run time from its rechargeable internal battery, negating the need for external power and providing a completely portable light source. The provided desktop power supply will charge the ILD-C at the same time as running the attached ILD-2 or ILD-3, offering continuous use.

*When voltage in your country is NOT 100-120V, a voltage transformer is required to provide optimal voltage that accommodates the specification of the optical device.

Significantly longer life
The life of this light source has been dramatically extended to an average 500 hours when 15V 150W lamps are used.

Improved environmental resistance
The circuit board is insulated with an encapsulating material that reduces the possibility of short-circuiting and improves atmospheric-resistance at the site.

UV

UV Light Source (Recommended models are available from our sales representatives)

Powerful UV output makes it ideal for fluorescent testing.

A common non-destructive testing (NDT) technique for crack detection uses dye-penetrate. In this method, dye remains in the cracks after cleaning, which is then observed when it fluoresces under ultra-violet light.

To suit this application and others where ultra-violet light is required, Olympus offers a high power UV light source which is compatible with all light guide cables and fiberscopes. Liquid light guide cables are recommended for best UV results.
