The KSL2 single wavelength LED illumination system is a light source for high power illumination. It is a compact device and includes a separate controller for manual or software controlled usage, analogue or digital modulation. The KSL2 does not require any warm-up time, produces no heat and can be modulated fast and easily. Thus, this illumination device is a most useful tool for fast acquisition of living and fixed samples. In addition, illumniation for the use with large camera sensors such as from sCMOS or AMCCD is possible.
We offer a broad range of excitation wavelengths covering the visible and invisible light spectrum. The small bandwidth of the KSL2 enables specific excitation without cross stimulation in the sample. In addition, white light systems are available as well.
The KSL2 LED system can be coupled to the illumination path of the microscope directly or via a liquid light guide to all models of major microscope brands. For users requiring more than one specific excitation wavelength, the illumination setup can be enlarged by the beam combination cube FC-70. Finally, up to four KSLs can be fitted to one microscope port.
The KSL2 system includes a small controller for ample variable control either manually (internal mode) or via software control, to change or to switch the system on and off. The integration in our SysCon software gives the opportunity to implement the KSL2 into your UGA-42 photomanipulation setup. Available TTL ports for digital and analog external triggering enable fast modulation and allow more flexibility and versatility for your experiments.
