LED light sources are ideal for fluorescence excitation and other measurements requiring narrowband illumination. The innovative optical design of the Ocean Insight LSM LED family provides highly efficient coupling into an optical fiber, ensuring high power for fluorescence excitation where every photon counts.
The LSM LEDs are controlled by the LDC-1 compact single channel driver and controller packed with features and functionality. The LDC-1 controller has an easy to use touchscreen for displaying and accessing key information stored in the LSM LEDs. Proprietary electronics provide stable, high-current operation in continuous, pulsed, and modulation modes. When using the internal modulation mode, the user can select sine, triangle or square waveforms. The LDC-1 also enables LSM LED control using an external source such as a function generator or a trigger/modulation signal from a spectrometer or other electronic device.
