Mightex BLS-13000-1E and BLS-18000-1 LED controllers are designed for driving Mightex Type-H Super High Power LED Sources. The controllers have two operation modes:

Manual Mode: the output current can be controlled by manually turning the knobs; or
Trigger Mode: the output current can be controlled via an external analog input signal between 0-5V.

The control mode is selected with a slide switch on the front panel, and the factory default is “Manual” mode. BLS-13000-1E and BLS-18000-1 have a maximum current setting of 13,000mA and 18,000mA, respectively.

When the controller is set to “Trigger” mode, the output current is fully controlled by the input analog signal (0-5V).

  • Dual Control Modes: manual or analog voltage-input controlled
  • High output current – up to 18A
  • BNC connectors for analog voltage inputs
  • Simple, tool-free connections
  • Capable of driving variable loads
  • Optogenetics
  • Fluorescence excitation
  • Microscopy
  • Testing instruments
  • Medical instruments
