Fiber coupled ultra high power green LED light source


Prizmatix Ltd recently released a new Fiber Coupled Ultra High Power LED-520nm (in addition to previously announced Ultra High Power Fiber Coupled LED-420nm); it provides almost x10 increase of power in comparison with similar High Power LED devices. The Ultra High Brightness LED is an effective replacement of lasers and lamps in many power demanding applications, such as fluorescence microscopy, machine vision, chemical reaction activation and numerous others. The LED head provides more than 100 mW of CW power at fiber output. The LED driver supports CW or pulsed operation.


  • Ultra High Power fiber coupled LED
  • Speckle free
  • TTL external modulation
  • Excellent for fluorescence excitation
  • LED spectrum can be narrowed by optional band pass filter installed inside the head.
  • Reciprocal SMA, FC or ST fiber connection
  • Precisely adjustable power
  • Long life (no lamp or laser tube replacement required)

Optical Specifications:

  • Wavelength nm 520
  • Wavelength range nm ±5
  • Spectrum half width nm 36
  • Polarization Random
  • Optical output connector SMA, FC, ST
  • Rapid warm up time


  • Machine Vision
  • Fluorescence microscopy and imaging (Alexa Fluor 514, Cy3, SNAFL®, SNARF®, FM 4-64)
  • Fluorescence spectroscopy
  • Photo activation (PA)
  • Fluorescence recovery after photo bleach (FRAP)
  • Bio analysis
  • Component testing

Power output from fiber:

  • UHP-Black-LED power output is limited by the reciprocal fiber characteristics. Larger core and higher NA will increase maximum power output, and vice versa.

Benchtop LED Current Controller Specifications Features:

  • Constant current or chopping modes
  • Precise LED current setting by 10 turn dial
  • TTL external trigger input
  • Compact and robust enclosure
