ASB-Xe-175 Light Source

Optimum Remote or Direct Illumination



- High Color Temperature (5600°K)
- CERMAX® Collimated
- Xenon Lamp
- Brightness Control (0 - 100%)
- Portable and Lightweight



The ASB-XE-175 is a compact and light weight high intensity fiber optic 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-175 uses a CERMAX® 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 to 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-175 provides instant re-ignition without an imposed time delay.
