Mightex GCS-series high-power LED sources are designed for high-efficiency coupling of LED light into a liquid lightguide (LLG) or a fiber optic bundle. Virtually all lightguides with core diameters ranging from 3mm to 8mm can be used with the GCS-series light source. Please note that lightguides and adapters are sold separately. GCS series also features a locking electrical connector for secured connection. GCS series are designed as a universal light source for general lab use and OEM applications. All Mightex LED drivers such as the SLC series or other LED drivers and current sources can be used to drive the GCS-series light sources. The one-piece machined aluminum alloy housing features integrated heatsinks and multiple mounting holes.

Multi-chip LED emitters have been added to the product portfolio (Type-B). Some of these 7W to 15W LEDs have total optical power exceeding 1W, quadrupling the power of a single-chip LED (Type-A). Models with higher powers (i.e. Type-B with 7W and higher) feature a cooling fan, and have a different form factor compared to other models. Please examine the installation drawings carefully. Power supply for the cooling fan is included in the price of the LED sources.

To drive a GCS LED source, one can use any one of the wide range of LED controllers Mightex has to offer:

IMPORTANT : (1) LED’s can ONLY be driven by a constant-current source, and NOT a voltage source (e.g. a battery, or a AC/DC power supply etc.); (2) Please always verify LED’s current rating first before applying current to the LED, and please always make sure NOT to apply current that is above the LED’s current rating.

Note: (1). “xxxxx” is the Lightguide Adapter code, see Lightguide Adapters table below (for Type-A GCS only); (2). Type-A, Type-B and Type-H LED sources have different installation drawings. Type-A does not include a cooling fan, whereas Type-B and -H does. When ordering an LED controller for a Type-B LED, please make sure to upgrade the AC/DC power adapter from the ‘standard’ 12V to 24V. The control module designed for Type-H light sources is BLS-13000-1 (sold separately), which is paired with the suitable AC/DC power adapter and does not require separate upgrade; and (3). Measured at exiting end of a 1 meter long, 3mm-core 0.59 numerical aperture (NA) liquid light guide. Due to variations in the manufacturing process and operating parameters such as temperature and current, the actual output of any given LED may vary. Specifications are intended to be used as a guideline.
