X-Cite XLED1


Up to 4 solid-state LEDs: LED Module Configurator from UVA (360-380 nm) to IRX (710-750 nm)

LED control

  • Switching instantaneously between wavelengths
  • Fine (0.1%)- course control  of each LED


  • User-defined free-running or single shot pulse modes
  • Internal triggering generated from internal pulse generator 10µs (min), up to 18 hours (max)
  • External (TTL)
  • Global trigger input (control all wavelengths at once)
