Nathaniel Group's Hyperion 300™ is the leading technology platform for small optical fiber illumination. The patent pending design delivers high light energy density levels (lux) allowing efficient coupling into the smallest light channels. The basic principle of operation is similar to an hourglass where the input and the output are much larger than the middle. The Hyperion 300 uses millimeter diameter sources of light which are focused into the sub-millimeter light channel of a video scope. At the distal end of the video scope the light is spread out again, thereby illuminating the object.
The Hyperion 300 is capable of delivering the light equivalent of a 40 watt incandescent bulb through a channel as small as 500 microns in diameter. The light engine is flexible and allows a wide range of wavelengths, from infrared to visible and ultraviolet, to be included or blocked in the output. The Hyperion 300 optical fiber illuminator can be coupled with the smallest fiber, fiber bundles or with millimeter-sized light channels to suit any video scope application.
The Hyperion 300 is perfectly suited for flexible and rigid video scopes, especially:
