This LED illuminator replaces the original Leitz Diaplan light source. It is designed to replace up to 100W halogen lights, not mercury lamps for fluorescence work. Provides a whiter, brighter light than the original, while consuming 90% less energy and generating 90% less heat. Intensity control is continuous from 0-100%. Problems with heat damaged bulb sockets, connector and power supply failure are all eliminated. No more bulb replacements. Problems with heat from the halogen bulb are eliminated, as are bulb changes. All the old components for the lighting system are replaced. Don’t buy a new microscope for thousands of dollars because of a bad illuminator. You can keep your perfectly good microscope working for a fraction of the price of an inferior new one. All Nanodyne illuminator systems include the power supply and required cables. Everything required for the illuminator is included. Your new Nanodyne illuminator will add decades of useful life to your microscope.
On systems where the original intensity adjustment was located on the microscope we normally provide a new adjustment pot with a cable to plug into the bottom of our illuminator for controlling it. Since the original Leitz Diaplan light source had the intensity adjustment on a separate power supply, our standard configuration is to put the adjustment on the side of the light source as shown in the photos. Please note that this illuminator system is the same as our Orthoplan illuminator.
