ColdVision Fiber Optic Light Guides

The technical properties of SCHOTT Light Guides and their range of light sources and accessories enable the precise camera systems in machine vision equipment to achieve optimum performance. Since consistency is key for decision-making, our light guides have built-in accuracy and reliability.

Trusted around the world since 1970

Mechanically stable

Despite their light weight, SCHOTT Light Guides offer strong protection against pressure and other mechanical challenges for improved fiber longevity. The extensive range of bundles also exhibit extremely small bending radii, as well as high flexibility.

Heat-free illumination

SCHOTT launched its first cold light source and light guides in 1970. Constantly driving innovation, SCHOTT has established the ColdVision series as a trusted brand for companies and organizations worldwide. As the light is guided from the source by our light guides, heat at the object is kept to a minimum.

Modular system with a broad portfolio

SCHOTT Light Guides are part of a series of modular ColdVision products that are highly compatible and easy to combine. These products include a number of light guide formats, as well as five different light sources that provide an array of combinations that cover most demanding applications.

Every accessory you need

Alongside our light guides and light sources, the SCHOTT ColdVision family includes a wide variety of mechanical and optical accessories. This further increases the flexibility of the series and provides customizable illumination for the vast majority of machine vision and microscopy requirements.
