Fiber-optic light system illuminates borescopes
Titan Tool Supply Inc. has introduced the new LuxPro LED fiber-optic illuminator to provide high-output light for borescopes. It is designed to exceed the brightness of a 150-W halogen bulb while reducing energy consumption by about 50 percent, the company says. The maintenance-free LED has a bulb life of 25,000 hours minimum, with 50,000 hours being typical.
The light, which uses a maximum of 80 W, features linear light intensity control with continuous dimming and accepts almost any light guide with quick-change adapters. It provides consistent color temperature (cool white 4500 K) and is equipped with a standard 0.625-in. light guide fitting (nosepiece).
The manufacturer can supply an adapter for almost any fiber-optic cable diameter from 0.187 to 1.0 in. (including Fostec 0.718 in. and ACMI), allowing customers to use their current fiber-optic guides and ring lights.
