WARNING
Sections marked with this heading explain dangers that might result in personal
injury or death. Always read the associated information carefully before performing
the indicated procedure.
ATTENTION
Paragraphs preceded by this symbol in the manual explain hazards that could
damage the instrument and connected equipment or may cause loss of data.
NOTE
This manual also contains "NOTES" and "HINTS" written in this form.

General Information
1.1 Safety
Attention
All statements regarding safety of operation and technical data in this instruction
manual will only apply when the unit is operated correctly as it was designed for.
The mounted LED of the MxxxLx series must not be operated in explosion
endangered environments!
The mounted LED of the MxxxLx series must only be connected with duly shielded
connection cables.
Only with written consent from Thorlabs may changes to single components be
carried out or components not supplied by Thorlabs be used.
This precision device is only transportable if duly packed into the complete original
packaging. If necessary, ask for a replacement package.
Do not remove covers!
Refer servicing to qualified personal!
WARNING
Inappropriate use of any Thorlabs High Power LED product could result in
permanent eye damage.
To prevent injury, these products must be used in accordance with the International
Standard “Photobiological Safety of Lamps & Lamp Systems” CEI IEC 62471.
When Thorlabs high power LED’s are used in microscope applications as a
replacement for mercury Vapor lamps, the same precautions should be taken as
those applying to mercury Vapor lamps.
When Thorlabs High Power LED’s are used in other applications, they should be
used in accordance with CEI IEC 62471.
WARNING
The M365L2, the M385L2 and the M405L2 contain an UV light LED! The LED radiates
intense UV light during operation. Precautions must be taken to prevent looking
directly at the UV light with unprotected eyes.
© 2012 Thorlabs
General Information 7
Do not look directly into the UV light or look through the optical system during
operation of the device. This can be harmful to the eyes even for brief periods due
to the high intensity of UV light.
If there is a possibility of reflection of the UV light, UV light protective glasses must
be used to prevent the UV light entering the eye.
If viewing the UV light is necessary, UV light protective glasses must be worn to
avoid eye damage by the UV light.
WARNING
The M780L2, M850L2 and M940L2 contains an IR light LED! The LED radiates
intense IR light during operation. Precautions must be taken to prevent looking
directly at the IR light with unprotected eyes.
Do not look directly into the IR light or look through the optical system during
operation of the device. This can be harmful to the eyes even for brief periods due
to the high intensity of IR light.
If there is a possibility of reflection of the IR light, IR light protective glasses must
be used to prevent the IR light entering the eye.
CAUTIONS
During normal operations, the casing temperature of Thorlabs High Power LED
products will rise by up to 25°C (45°F) above ambient temperature.
To prevent higher case temperatures, the products should be operated without
hindrance to air movement surrounding the convective cooling fins.

Getting started
2.1 Unpacking
Inspect the shipping container for damage.
If the shipping container seems to be damaged, keep it until you have inspected the
contents and you have inspected the MxxxLx mechanically and electrically.
Verify that you have received the following items:

MxxxLx Mounted LED assembly

Operation Manual
2.2 Preparation
Prior to connect the LED to a LED driver, check if the LED can handle the maximum LED
current or the LED current limit is configured correctly. The MxxxLx features an EEPROM,
which contains the maximum LED current, wavelength and forward voltage of the LED.
1. Connect the MxxxL2 to the LED driver.
2. Check the current limit.
3. Switch on the LED driver
2.3 Physical Overview
Mounted LED Assembly
The following picture shows the male connector of the MxxxLx mounted LED assembly. It
is a standard M8x1 sensor circular connector. Pin 1 and 2 are the connection to the LED.
Pin 3 and 4 are used for the internal EEPROM in the MxxxLx series. Do not use these
connections when using a different LED driver than the Thorlabs series of LED drivers.

5.22 Switch-on Behavior
Each LED has a characteristic switch-on behavior, which depends on LED properties and
environmental conditions. An important criterion is the heat dissipation. Thorlabs mounted
LEDs of the MxxxL2 series feature a unique thermal design in order to reduce the power
decay to a minimum. The following diagram shows typical switch on behaviors of two
different LEDs.

Warranty
Thorlabs warrants material and production of the MxxxL2 Series for a period of 24 months starting with the
date of shipment. During this warranty period Thorlabs will see to defaults by repair or by exchange if these
are still entitled to warranty. For warranty repairs or service the unit must be sent back to Thorlabs Germany
or to a place determined by Thorlabs. The customer will carry the shipping costs back to Thorlabs, in case of
warranty repairs Thorlabs will carry the shipping costs back to the customer. If no warranty repair is
applicable the customer will also carry the costs for back shipment. If the unit is sent back to Thorlabs from
abroad the customer will carry all shipping costs, duties etc. which should arise for sending the goods back
to Thorlabs.
Thorlabs warrants the hardware and software determined by Thorlabs for this unit to operate without fault
provided that they are handled according to our statements. However, Thorlabs does not warrant a fault free
or uninterrupted operation of the unit, of the software or firmware for special applications nor this operation
manual to be fault free. We will not carry responsibility for ensuing damages.
Restriction of warranty
The aforementioned warranty does not cover errors and defects being the result of improper treatment,
software and interface not supplied by us, modification, misuse or operation outside the defined ambient
conditions stated by us or unauthorized maintenance.
Further claims will not be consented to and will not be acknowledged. Thorlabs does explicitly not warrant
the usability or the economical use for certain cases of application.
Thorlabs reserves the right to change this operation manual or the technical data of the described unit at any
time.

Thorlabs “End of Life” Policy (WEEE)
As required by the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive) of the
European Community and the corresponding national laws, Thorlabs offers all end users
in the EC the possibility to return “end of life” units without incurring disposal charges.
This offer is valid for Thorlabs electrical and electronic equipment
th
 sold after August 13 2005
 marked correspondingly with the crossed out “wheelie bin” logo (see below)
 sold to a company or institute within the EC
 currently owned by a company or institute within the EC
 still complete, not disassembled and not contaminated
As the WEEE directive applies to self contained operational electrical and electronic
products, this “end of life” take back service does not refer to other Thorlabs products,
such as
 pure OEM products, that means assemblies to be built into a unit by the user (e. g.
OEM laser driver cards)
 components
 mechanics and optics
 left over parts of units disassembled by the user (PCB’s, housings etc.).
If you wish to return a Thorlabs unit for waste recovery, please contact Thorlabs or your
nearest dealer for further information.
Waste treatment on your own responsibility
If you do not return an “end of life” unit to Thorlabs, you must hand it to a company
specialized in waste recovery. Do not dispose of the unit in a litter bin or at a public waste
disposal site.
Ecological background
It is well known that WEEE pollutes the environment by releasing toxic products during
decomposition. The aim of the European RoHS directive is to reduce the content of toxic
substances in electronic products in the future.
The intent of the WEEE directive is to enforce the recycling of WEEE. A controlled
recycling of end of live products will thereby avoid negative impacts on the environment.
