The SCHOTT KL 1600 LED Fiber Optic Light Source Illuminator uses cold light to illuminate all objects in industrial and life science applications. Its multiple LED light engine provides an attractive alternative to conventional halogen cold light sources. The brightness of 680 lm at the end of a flexible 9 mm Ø light guide is equivalent to a 150W halogen cold light source, such as while the electrical power consumption is less than 40 watts of power consumption, making this a go-green machine! An extremely quiet fan assures optimized heat management and near-silent operation. Schott KL series illuminators are explicitly designed for microscopy. There is a large selection of Fiber Optic light guides within the KL series—single and dual gooseneck, Ringlights, and Flexible bundles. Please contact our customer support team if you need assistance selecting the correct illumination components or package for your specific application. We are lighting experts who can help you with any microscope or illumination scenario.

I really appreciate the level of personalized support Empire Optics offers. No matter what the issue is, we get help immediately.


We spoke with Nick and the Digital Microscope he suggested is working great. It is super easy to operate and checks all our boxes.


Working with Empire Optics to upgrade our Fluorescence microscope was a great experience. They were extremely attentive, and we are incredibly happy with the outcome.
