The FO-6000 is a continuous fiber optic light source featuring an extended visible part of the light source (380 nm - 1700 nm). It has a SMA fiber optic connector. Both, shutter and lamp can be controlled via a switch or external TTL triggering. This light source offers a wide assortment of applications. A special feature of the FO-6000 is its color balancing optics, which shifts the usable range of the light source from traditional 420 nm down to 380 nm wavelength. Due to its thermally controlled optical bench, it is particularly suitable for low noise and low drift applications.
