Backlights

Patented SCHOTT Backlights are calibrated to provide bright, even illumination for Microscopy and Machine Vision applications.

Single and Dual Backlights

Product and Performance Characteristics:
  • Calibrated with DDL-bulb from ±13 to ±15 gray scale levels at a mean of 200, gamma setting of 1.0, using a patented process to create diffuse, uniform illumination within the active area (Uniformity scans are available upon request)
  • The white acrylic diffuser plate provides the optimum combination of uniformity and intensity, a protective IR filter is included with every unit
  • Backlight housing is made of rugged, black anodized aluminum, the plastic fiber bundle is protected with flexible PVC covered metal tubing
  • Compact, low profile housing fits in small spaces
  • Can be used to create a crisp edge definition, or soft, diffuse incident light
  • Dual and quad backlights increase lighting versatility, additional combinations and sizes can be custom ordered
  • Intended for use with strobes and ColdVision Series light sources; other sources, particularly those without an IR filter, may damage the plastic fibers
  • ColdVision dichroic color filters can be used on the products in conjunction with the A08931 backlight color filter adapter (see photo)

NOTE:
This product contains plastic fibers. To avoid fiber damage use only with SCHOTT or other approved light sources. Do not use input filters or diffusers without a SCHOTT adapter. Thermal transfer may cause damage to the fibers. All PANELite® Backlights have permanent input IR filters which must be kept clean. Clean panels with isopropanol only. OTHER SOLVENTS will damage the fiber and affect uniformity.
