ASB-XE-E180 Light Source

Optimum UV/VIS/NIR Illumination



- High Color Temperature (5600°K)
- 175W Collimated output Xenon Lamp
- Brightness Control (0 - 100%)
- Optimal solution for monochromator coupling


The ASB-XE-E180 is a compact and lightweight high intensity fiber optic (BF version only) light source. It is especially suitable as a light source for spectroscopy, microscopy, optical scanning, and industrial uses, as well as for use with SP's popular Digikröm monochromators and spectrographs. The ASB-XE-E180 uses a 175W compact high-intensity xenon lamp, state-of-the-art optics, and a high-efficiency lightweight switching power supply in one compact package. The 175W short-arc xenon lamp provides broadband output from ~200 to ~2200nm (dominantly, from 250 to 1100nm). This lamp is compact, rugged, and easily focused on a liquid light guide (sold separately). The lamp efficiency is enhanced by the integral parabolic reflector which provides precision system alignment and maximum transition of light energy. Beam stability is achieved instantly following lamp ignition and the ASB-XE-E180 provides instant re-ignition without an imposed time delay.

Damage to glass or fused silica fiber optic lightguides can occur due to high temperatures associated with Xenon lamps 

(except for the BF version).
