A company has introduced a new LED fiber optic illuminator module specifically designed for integration into OEM medical device applications. The XLM Plus comes complete with electronics and communications interfaces and is suited to endoscopy, surgical microscopy, and headlamp applications. The product is manufactured in an ISO 13485:2003-certified facility. The XLM Plus LED Fiber Optic Light Module with Electronics offers light output comparable to 180 W Xenon sources, yet with the advantages of LED lighting, which include long life, less heat output than Xenon, and virtually no ultraviolet or infrared radiation, which eliminates the need for filtering. The XLM Plus LED Light Module is compliant with medical safety standards IEC/EN 60601-1 and EN60601-1-2. The unit includes integrated electronic circuitry for safety alarms, error mode and power status indicators. It provides circuitry for connection to fiber safety interlocks. In the event a fiber is removed from the illuminator during use, the XLM Plus LED Fiber Optic Light Module can be immediately shut off, which is a unique safety feature for vision protection.
