(F3000) Photonic LED Fiber Optic Cold Light Source

Product Summary

The F3000 fiber optic illuminator for microscopy delivers high-performance LED illumination for the most demanding applications


  • Brighter than a 150 W halogen light source
  • Extended service life
  • 70% energy savings
  • 5800 K color temperature
  • Electronic shutter
  • Continuously variable luminance
  • LCD display
  • Metallic housing
  • Quiet fan
  • Controllable via USB or foot switch


The advantages of fiber optic illumination can be found in the creation of maximum illumination density in a small area. At magnifications greater than 40x in connection with very small object fields of only a few millimeters, the Photonic fiber optic spot lighting with integrated focusing lenses provides more than sufficient brightness for examining dark coloured and light absorbing objects.

The Photonic F3000 LED light source has been developed for routine and high end microscopy applications. It's compatible with all Photonic fiber optic light guides and can outperform a 150W halogen light source in terms of luminosity. The robust metal housing is designed for long-term, stable operation and is stacking capable.

Light guides

The F3000 LED light source is compatible with Photonic's single and dual arm light guides.

The Dual Arm gooseneck light guide has two 55 cm (21") arms, each with 4.5 mm diameter.

Photonic LED Fiber Optic Cold Light Source (F3000)


The Single Arm Flexible light guide is 100 cm (39") long and is available in a 5 mm diameter.

Note that the Flexible Arm light guide is highly flexible and will require a separate clamp for holding it in position in your work space.
