Multi-purpose Lamp Housing
At OPTEL OPOLE we designed and manufactured a lamp housing that can be used with multiple broadband lamps. With a single housing user can switch between short arc xenon lamps and low-voltage tungsten halogen bulbs. The replacement of the light source takes only few seconds. Each lamp requires a separate dedicated power supply, which we also manufacture.
Standard lamps that can be mounted in the housing are:
OSRAM XBO 150W
short arch xenon lamps 450W and 500W ( equivalents of XBO 450W and XBO 500W)
ozone free xenon lamp USHIO UXL-451-O
150W low-voltage tungsten halogen lamps; HLX 64626 , HLX 64633, HLX 64640
250W low-voltage tungsten halogen lamp HLX 64655
400W low-voltage tungsten halogen lamp HLX 64663
In order to replace a lamp one needs to open the back door by releasing two knobs. The XY stage allows precise positioning of the arc with respect to the optical axis.
