Pulsed Xenon light sources of the APOLLO XP-SERIES

The xenon light sources of the APOLLO SERIES are a very good solution when a very high luminance (point light source) is required.

The pulsed APOLLO XP xenon light sources have all the advantages of the continuous APOLLO X xenon sources, but instead offer a short, high-intensity light pulse of a few microseconds and are therefore ideal for time-resolved measurements.

As with the continuous light sources, the pulsed light sources are supplied complete with housing, high-performance focusing optics and stabilized power supply.

Key features of the APOLLO XP-SERIES are:

  • Broadband spectrum from visible to infrared
  • Very high luminance (point light source)
  • Fused Silica condenser lens and rear light reflector enhance light collection
  • Highly stable power supply
  • Height of optical axis: 150 mm
  • Collimated beam diameter: 50 mm
  • Minimum spot diameter: ≤8 mm
  • Optional output over multiple ports
  • Integrated high-voltage igniter and built-in trigger to avoid high-voltage transmissions between light source housing and power supply
  • Colour temperature: 6000 K
  • Innovative cooling design ensures stable lamp operation and maximum hand-warm housing
  • Safety interlock and thermal sensors
  • Various adapters for collimated or focused beam output
