Autoclavable SCHOTT Solidur® LEDs for medical and dental devices
SCHOTT has introduced two additional product platforms at the International Dental Show 2015 in Cologne, Germany, as well as the new trade name Solidur® for its autoclavable and customizable LEDs:
The Solidur® Ring LED is the world’s first ring-shaped autoclavable LED. Its “ring design” enables shadow-free illumination of the area of interest.
The Solidur® TO LED is an autoclavable LED that is based on hermetic Transistor Outline (TO)-geometries. As a TO-specialist, SCHOTT can offer a broad variety of TO housings and lenses.
LEDs have become indispensable in high-tech applications, for instance in medical technology or dentistry. Here, very high requirements are placed on lighting products: size, light properties, temperature management, usability and sterilizability are of major importance.
Hermetic and autoclavable
Precisely for these applications, SCHOTT has developed fully hermetic Solidur® LED modules. Besides gas- and watertightness, thoroughly selected materials provide excellent temperature management properties, as well as a high lifetime. Thus, the LEDs can reliably withstand extremely harsh operating environments, e.g. typical sterilization conditions in autoclaves.
Thanks to SCHOTT’s know how in the development of customized housings, caps and lenses, Solidur®LEDs can be designed to meet your individual requirements. Furthermore, customers can select from three basic LED types:
- Mini LED: The world’s smallest autoclavable HB (high brightness) LED
- Ring LED: The first autoclavable ring-shaped HB LED
- TO LED: Autoclavable all-rounder that can be easily integrated into existing systems
