G180 Series – Color Tunable Table Top / Pole Mount


The G180 offers high brightness, tunable correlated color temperature (CCT) and adjustable intensity in a compact, flexible, and convenient package. Different colored LED chips packed into our Dense Matrix LED™ Array couple light efficiently into a light guide, illuminating your sample with selectable colors to enhance contrast, protect wavelength sensitive samples, and optimize viewing comfort. Undesirable light and sample interactions such as photobleaching in fluorescence and unintended curing in photosensitive adhesives can be avoided by selecting a color channel that does not interact with the sample. Eye fatigue, often caused by sustained viewing over long periods of time when performing visual inspection, can also be minimized by selecting the appropriate CCT.

The G180-TW (Tunable White) has six selectable CCTs from 2700K to 6500K, plus two user-programmable settings. The G180-RGB has three individual single-color channels, Red (at 635nm), Green (at 515nm) and Blue (at 475nm), in addition to three CCT whites and two user-programmable settings. The G180-5600K is not color tunable. Different color configurations can also be built to order. Available in either a table top or space saving pole mount configuration, the G180 can be readily adapted to your application. Furthermore, the pole mount model can be mounted either vertically or horizontally and can be automated and synchronized with other hardware via USB or external triggering, making it a great fit for automated production lines and robotics. External trigger inputs enable <2msec shuttering times for strobe and pulse applications. The ScopeLED G180 combines power, flexibility, and usability in a compact form and is a great choice for your application. ScopeLED provides optional light guides and ring lights for a complete illumination system.

Applications include machine vision, visual inspection, forensics, biology, and microscopy.
