Adding to our highly successful communication LED and photodetector products, IFO has created a series of LEDs for fiber optic illumination. Easy to use and utilizing solid-state technology, this product line offers alternatives to fragile and bulky bulb-type illuminators or low optical irradiance LED technology. Unlike other illumination products, these LEDs were designed from the clip-level for use as a fiber optic illumination light source.
The LEDs use the same "no-connector required" approach as our communications devices, and require no fiber ferrule to be crimped or epoxied onto the fiber bundle. This enables quick and easy application and field installation. The LEDs can be used with large solid-core fibers or multi-fiber bundles (plastic or glass), in diameters ranging from 1 to 3 mm.
The internal construction of the LEDs is optimized to direct as much optical energy into optical fibers or bundles as possible. The series was designed specifically for fiber optic applications, and is not a makeover or repackaging of a general illumination device. Incorporating built-in heat sinks, they are convenient to use and easy to install, requiring little or no training and few tools.
The fiber optic LEDs are available as blue, green, amber, red and white light-producing devices. Graphs of the spectrum for each device are shown on the following page. Devices with two monochromatic colors within one package can be fabricated.
