The Lumencor Spectra X light Engine has been released to afford the end user the ability to exchange single band pass filters within the light engine. These field replaceable filters mean Lumencor can offer as many as 21 different bandpasses for use within the visible spectrum. No moving parts reside in this SPECTRA model. Lumencor preserves performance in the form of cool, stable, robust, spectrally pure, powerful outputs and now allows the user to make his or her own choices about bandpass during use in the field. This additional flexibility allows individual users, core facilities and OEMs an adaptable solid state excitation subsystem on par with the flexibility of a filter wheel.
This product ships with six independent sources. A suite of seven filters, one for each color band, is included in the purchase. Additional filter paddles and filters may be purchased at any time to increase the range of bandpasses for the ensemble of sources within the light engine.
Each output in the optical train of the light engine remains aligned through filter exchanges, allowing the user to focus on their science and not the need to realign and maintain a light source.
