Light Sources
Optimal lighting in endoscopy
Light into darkness
Cold light for illuminating cavities
At KARL STORZ, hollow spaces are illuminated exclusively using cold light.
With this technology, the light source is outside of the endoscope, and the light is guided to
the tip of the endoscope through high quality fiber-optic light guides. This robust, rugged, and
trouble-free technology generates extremely bright light without significant heating of the
inspected object and ensures shadow-free illumination of the inspected cavity.
The first cold light source
from 1960
A light source, also known as light
projector, LED light source, or cold
light source, is a separate cold
light projector that generates light
using powerful lamps; the light
then travels through a light cable
into the endoscope, exits at the
sheath, and illuminates the cavity
to be inspected. Lamps include
LED, halogen, XENON, Solarc, or
incandescent lamps.
In 1960, Dr. Karl Storz invented the cold
light source. Since that time, light has been
generated outside of the endoscope and
transmitted through fiber-optic light guides to
minimize the heat generated at the tip of the
endoscope.
To utilize the lamp current generated by
the light source as effectively as possible,
most KARL STORZ cold light sources are
equipped with a complex, computer-calculated
condenser system that precisely focuses the
light generated by the lamp on the light guide.
The result is a further considerable increase in
luminous efficacy.
Bright light is a key determinant of image
quality. Powerful, high quality light sources are
therefore essential for informative endoscopic
images.
The suitability of a light source depends on the
type of endoscope used. Therefore, we offer
various light sources at different power levels
as well as portable, battery-operated cold light
projectors.
These range from 5 W LED to 300 W XENON
high performance light sources.

Portable light sources
Battery-operated LED light sources
The battery-operated LED light source is available in a conventional battery version or with a
rechargeable battery. It features extraordinarily high light intensity of more than 100,000 Lux and
produces purest white light. Major advantages are the long life of an LED (up to 50,000 hours) and
the run time of more than 120 minutes. The battery-operated LED light source is compatible with
almost all KARL STORZ endoscopes and is directly attached to the light connector. Therefore, no
light cable is needed.

Light cables for cold light projectors
For each endoscope, there is an optimal light cable. For example, large-diameter endoscopes
should be used with light cables with a large cross-section (active diameters), so that the high light
output can be fully passed on. Therefore, it is important to chose a suitable light cable.
High performance fluid light cable, active diameter 5 mm, in robust
industrial design, designed for heavy-duty industrial use with extra
robust kink protector, steel housing, protective metal sleeve for the
quartz rod component of the light plug, tubing diameter 9 mm.
