Cermax® VQ is the premiere solution for medical lighting applications where performance and reliability are paramount. Excelitas' Cermax® VQ line delivers the unparalleled color performance that has made Cermax® Xenon the medical industry standard for over 20 years. Cermax VQ Xenon lamps are compact, metal body Xenon short-arc lamps. With an internal precision cut reflector body with metal-to-sapphire and ceramic seal construction, Cermax® VQ lamps are a safe and very compact alternative to conventional quartz bubble Xenon lamps and are the recommended Cermax® lamps for new Xenon illumination designs.
Utilizing an integrated parabolic reflector, Cermax® lamps produce high intensity, collimated light. This leaves the optical designer with the utmost flexibility in choice of post-processing, light-shaping optics.
Due to the Xenon lamps’ broad color spectrum, the lamp is filtered to emit either visible, UV or IR light depending on application or usage.
Standard Cermax® parabolic reflector metal body lamps have operating power ranges from 300 to 400 Watt.
Typical application areas are:
- Fiber optic illumination
- Analytical instrumentation
- Endoscopy and laparoscopy
Excelitas takes pride in providing Xenon and solid state based lighting products and solutions that help to create a brighter, healthier and safer environment.
