The KL 200 LED Series cold light engine from Schott's Fiber Optics Division (San Francisco, CA) comes with an integrated controller and can be mounted directly to the microscope. This saves space on the workbench and allows for ergonomic operation, because all levers needed are part of the microscope stand. There is no need to remove eyes from eyepieces while working.

The KL 200 LED is a fiber optic cold light source that contains an LED light engine that is actually brighter than a 20 watt halogen bulb, while using 80 percent less energy (5 W vs. 25 W). Because there is no need to change bulbs on the KL200 LED, the costs of replacing or servicing bulbs is also eliminated. The LED light engine offers a brighter, neutral 5300 K white light; continuous dimming (0-100) and a separate on/off switch. This allows users to maintain light level settings over multiple sessions.

The compact housing easily adapts to multitudes of microscope stands. Convection cooling makes the KL 200 LED a compact and versatile unit that is free of noise and vibration. KL 200 LED is designed for ease of use and conform to CSA (United States) and the CE standards. It comes with a universal power supply (120 - 240-volt) so it can be used worldwide.
