Excelitas Technologies Corp., a leading industrial technology manufacturer focused on delivering innovative, market-driven photonic solutions, today introduced its nPAX-N2 2W pulsed xenon light module. A companion product to Excelitas’ µPAX-2 series, the nPAX-N2 contains a flashlamp, trigger circuit and power supply in a small cylindrical format, ideal for point-of-care analytics and environmental analysis.
The nPAX-N2 is very compact, with the smallest diameter of any enclosed, 2W pulsed xenon light source on the market. The fully enclosed light source can be safely and easily used in mobile field applications, such as water quality monitoring and point-of-care medical analytics. It is half the size of Excelitas’ 2 Watt μPAX-2pulsed xenon light source, with the same state-of-the-art circuitry and components providing microsecond-duration pulses of broadband light and exceptional arc stability.
The nPAX-N2 module’s high stability performance (<1.0% CV) ensures consistent illumination from one use to the next, enabling highly accurate analytics. Its long lifetime delivers ≥ 1 x 109 flashes before output is reduced below 50% of initial capacity, minimizing replacement needs.
Flexible flying leads and precision arc alignment enable streamlined integration.
“Excelitas’ new nPAX-N2 brings high-stability pulsed xenon lighting into smaller instruments for field use,” said Mark Gaston, Product Manager at Excelitas. “Its compact form factor and enclosed design enables streamlined integration and improved durability without compromising safety. The nPAX-N2 is a great addition to our portfolio of illumination products, designed to meet customers’ needs for faster, more mobile analytics.”
