LED Light Source SL 3500

LED Light Sources are arrays of high-performance light emitting diodes (LEDs) that are easily controllable in timing - from microseconds to hours - and intensity - from 1 % to 100 % of total output. If supplemented with the Light Controller LC 100 or Light Studio software, they can operate in multiple regimes: flash, continuous light, harmonically modulated light, or they can work with user-defined modulation. Both the Light Controller LC 100 and Light Studio software offer the possibility to create user-defined protocols with light/dark phases and precise control over the light mode, intensity and timing.

Different LED Light Source models vary in the panel size (= illuminated area) and in light color (from UVA to IR).

Optional Features and Accessories

Light Studio Software with Control Unit
Light Studio Software is a PC solution for precise control over the light mode, intensity and timing - (seconds to hours). It supports up to 4 lights or 4 colors; each light (color) can be configured and programmed independently. Light modulation is allowed according to a predefined function (continuous, pulse, sine, triangle) or user programmed function. The software comes with a Control Unit. Optionally, the Light Studio software may be supplied with a trigger for external protocol start.


Extra License for Light Studio Software + Control Unit
Control Unit with an extra software license for use with additional LED Light Panel(s).


External Trigger to Light Studio Software
External trigger for remote protocol start.


Light Controller LC 100
LC 100 is a hardware, stand-alone solution for precise control of light characteristics and day/night simulation in SL 3500 LED Light Sources. It provides precise control over the light mode, intensity and timing (seconds to hours) and maintains also generation of short pulses (micro-seconds). It can control up to 4 lights/colors in SL 3500; each light /color can be configured and controlled independently. Light Controller LC 100 supports light modulation according to a predefined function (continuous, pulse, sine, triangle), user-programmed function (optional), or daylight simulation (optional). No PC is needed for this device operation.


Additional Protective Glasses
Radiation safety glasses protecting against excessive LED radiation – equipped with side cover and protective filters. One pair of glasses is provided with the device free of charge.


User-Defined Custom Protocol
Optional feature to the Light Controller LC 100: when uploaded to Light Controller, this Protocol can support up to 224 light phase intervals, each defined by light intensity and duration.


Daylight Protocol
Optional feature to the Light Controller LC 100: when uploaded to Light Controller, the Daylight Protocol serves for cloudy skies simulations - several adjustable parameters. Includes also additional program for "cloud visualization" on a PC.


Modular Stand
Allows many spatial possibilities in arrangement and attachment of scientific instrumentation.

LED Light Source SL 3500

LED Light Source SL 3500 serves for generation of strong, controllable irradiance. It is manufactured in three basic versions that differ in the panel size: 13 x 13 cm, 20 x 20 cm, or 30 x 20 cm. Offered are single-color, bi-color or tri-color panel versions. The LED Light Source comes with an adjustable stand.


LED Fyto-Panels

LED Fyto-Panels are primarily intended for installation in growth chambers or for other similar applications where controlled large-area illumination is of high importance.
The panel dimension is 27 cm x 81 cm and its whole surface is mounted with high-intensity white LEDs complemented with far red LEDs (735 nm).
