Fibre Optic Light Guide Leads for Xenon Light Sources
- CE Marked
- Serial numbered for traceability
- Made using High Transmission Technology via fused rather than glued fibres, enhancing light output
- Durable and flexible due to a stainless steel armour that protects the fibres
- Fully autoclaveable
- Warranted for 12 months
- Available in 7 different colours
They come in a range of standard diameters; 2.5mm, 3.5mm and 4.8mm with lengths of 1.8m, 2.3m, 2.5m and 3m.
A stainless steel armour spring protects the fused fibres from breakage during normal use. Glass silk braiding also protects the cable from any stretching. Finally the cable is encased in a silicon sheath, making a completely sealed unit, which is fully autoclaveable.
Fused light leads have far less light loss as each fibre is actually compressed to meet its neighbour. Unlike the more conventional bonded cables, no organic cement is needed to fill the gaps between the fibres. This dramatically reduces the chance of the cables burning at the light source end, making them ideal for use with high intensity Xenon light sources.
