The LED freedom you've been waiting for
Since the beginning of endoscopy, providing sufficient illumination has been difficult.
With the advent of LED light sources, many of the problems of weight, size, heat and noise have been eliminated, but only Acera has solved the problem of how to fully harness the light output of an LED. Using optical fiber to transmit light into small spaces is not new. Using an LED as a light source is obvious.
SO WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?
It's all about the angles
An LED emits light in a hemispherical pattern with a 180 degree output angle. However an optical light guide will only accept light which arrives within a 27 degree cone. Any light outside that cone just goes through the side of the fibre and is lost.
The most advanced LED system on the planet
That’s it! You have to see the result to believe it. More light at the distal end of the light guide than you would believe possible.
Acera components and technology are available for incorporation into your products.
Our Handheld Light Source allows your scope to be totally mobile.
The Acera Handheld Light Source upgrades your flexible or rigid endoscope to a truly portable and mobile tool. You will be able to move freely, unrestricted by cables. Acera has combined patent pending optics, and a best-in-class LED, to produce this compact, high quality light source made in the USA.
