Ringlight Polarizers & Analyzers
Polarizer/Analyzer, A08615
The polarizing effect enhances contrast on highly reflective surfaces for
Microscopy and Machine Vision Applications.
••The polarizer/analyzer reduces reflection and glare.
Polarizers & Analyzers
••The A08615 and A08632 polarizers were designed to easily snap-fit onto
the ringlight. The analyzer is dropped through the top of the ringlight
and positioned on top of the polarizer.
••To prevent the polarizer/analyzer from moving due to vibration, a knurled
thumb-screw locks the polarizer assembly into position. In addition, it
makes the holder easier to adjust. To further prevent vibration, a setscrew stops the polarizer disk from turning within the assembly. These
features are found on polarizer / analyzer model numbers A08615 and
A08627.

Randomized and Calibrated Bundles
Quad Randomized and Calibrated Bundle, A21045
Designed to increase uniformity of light output for Machine Vision
applications
••Fibers are randomized to improve spot uniformity.
••For specific uniformity requirements, calibrated
outputs on dual and quad bundles were designed
to be interchangeable for Machine Vision
inspection applications. Interchangeability was
achieved by maintaining light intensity within
10% bundle to bundle.
Single Randomized Bundle, A08031.40R
••We assure consistency by adding a 12” (305)*
randomized common end at the input. This extra
12” (305) of fiber scrambles the light, distributing
any hot or cold spots from the lamp throughout
each of the legs. Then, each one of the legs is
calibrated so the output from each leg is within
5% of each other.
Single Bundle, A08031.60R
••Tight bending radius for easy routing
••A variety of standard sizes include single, dual,
and quad configurations. See chart on left for
part numbers and specifications.
••Multi-leg bundles are illuminated with one light
source.
••The standard output ferrules accept spot lenses
with or without polarizing caps. (See Accessories

Filters and Adapter
••Available in red, green, blue, yellow, and daylight. These Dichroic filters
will not darken or alter spectral response over time, regardless of light
intensity or duration. The daylight filter increases existing color
temperature to approximately 3000 K when used with EKE, EJA, and DDL
lamps at their rated voltages.
A08931 Color Filter Adapter
••Dichroic color filters reflect heat versus absorbing it, eliminating the need
for a thermal expansion split.
••Clear anodized aluminum housing is used on the filters. Black anodized
aluminum housing is used on the adapter.
Diffusers
••Input lens diffuser, part number, A08086, homogenises beam with
A08087 & A08086 Input Lens Diffusers
minimal light loss and minimizes black hole phenomenon from fiber

Spatially Randomized Lightlines
Continuous Lightline, A08940
A patented exclusive! 24" and 40" lines of for web and line scanning applications
• Manufactured using a patented process called spatial randomization. The
process allows light from each input to be distributed over the entire
length of the line. Therefore, should a light source fail while using
multiple inputs, intensity is evenly reduced over the length of the line,
rather than losing all light in a section of the line.
• Calibrated to ±15 gray scale levels at a mean of 200 with a gamma
setting of 1.0 to deliver optimum uniformity. Refer to section 25.02.01for
information on uniformity of fiber optic products.
• Assembly method accurately positions the fiber line within the body on
Continuous Lightine, A08964
all three planes, to a tolerance of ± .004" (.1)*. The technique assures the
fiber axis will be parallel with the mounting surface of the body.
• Standard input ferrule fits ColdVision Series light sources.
Can also be used with strobes.
• The 24" (610) lightline accepts our dichroic filters and diffusers. To use
color filters on the 40" (1016) line, part number A08931, color filter
adapter, is required.
• Rugged aluminum body with a black anodized finish
• Stainless steel tubing protects the fiber bundle.
• Cylindrical lenses are available. They are designed to collect light exiting
the lightline to increase intensity up to a factor of 10.
• Custom length, bundle exits, line widths and configuration are available.

while avoiding interference with the camera; an important
consideration in space constrained systems.
••Useful for illuminating a rectangular surface area where the

ColdVision Series
Fiber Characteristics
Fiber Composition
Most optical fibers consist of two different types of optically
transmittive materials. The core, about 75-90% of the fiber depending
on the fiber diameter, has a higher refractive index than the cladding.
This creates a reflecting interface between core and cladding which
keeps the light within the core due to total reflection.
Most optical fibers are made from glass, plastic or synthetic fused silica
(often refered to as "quartz"). Each fiber has different properties
producing various advantages. Due to their low attenuation silica fibers
are commonly used in data communication. Glass is still the best
choice for illumination and sensing applications, due to a reasonale
cost-benefit ratio. Plastic fibers can be used for assemblies not
requiring heat above 175°F/80°C. Single plastic fibers are usually larger
in diameter than glass fibers, which results in restricted bending radii.
Fiber Characteristics
Numerical Aperture
The sketch above shows a typical fiber. The core has a refractive index
of N1 and the cladding an index of N2. Light enters the fiber at angle
A and is transmitted through the fiber. If the angle A is too large, the
light will not be transmitted. We call the angle beyond which the light
cannot be carried through the fiber the Critical Angle. This is
calculated using the two refraction indices. The sine of the Critical
Angle is the Numerical Aperture or NA The Acceptance Angle of the
fiber is two times the Critical Angle.
NA =
(N1) 2 - (N2) 2
f# = 1/2 NA
EXAMPLE: If N1 is 1.62 and N2 is 1.52, the NA will be .56 which
equals a Critical Angle of 34° and an Acceptance Angle of 68°.
The f number/equivalent will be f/0.89.
Optical fibers tend to preserve the angle of incidence during the light
transmission and therefore in the figure above, the angle A is shown at
both the entrance and exit ends of the fiber. The sketch below shows a
typical projecting lamp illuminating a fiber bundle. The angle A is the
Acceptance Angle of a .25 NA fiber (29°). Angle B is the Incident Angle
from the lamp and angle C is the Acceptance Angle of a .66 NA fiber
(83°).
i-196
311765_Illumination_innen.indd 196
07.09.11 14:58
The calculated minimum NA. required for the 45° Angle of Incidence is
.38. Therefore, a fiber with an NA. of .66 will accept all of the light
from the lamp, but the output angle will only be 45° and not the 83°
which might be expected. However, the .25 NA. fiber which cannot
accept all of the light, will have an output angle of 20°. Using a low NA.
fiber will not focus the light from a lamp because it can’t receive any
light beyond its Critical Angle and therefore has a narrow output cone.
Multicomponent glass fibers typically reach NA values up to 0.9,
whereas quartz silica fibers typically do not exceed 0.4 NA values.
Transmission Characteristics of Optical Fibers
High quality optical glass (crown and flint glass) is used for the light
transmitting core and an optical glass with a different refractive index
for the cladding. Wavelengths between 400 and 900 nm are
transmitted uniformly, with only minor variations.
Fiber Characteristics
In this range SCHOTT's standard multicomponent glass fibers (A2, B3)
have attenuation levels between 150 and 300 dB/km. Transmission in
the UV range is very low and wavelengths below 350 nm are not
transmitted. However, the near infrared range (0.8 μm to 1.3 μm) is
transmitted very well by glass fibers. At 1.4 micron, all fibers except
those specifically designed for IR transmission, show a significant drop
in transmission due to OH-Absorption within the glass. In the range
from 1.4 up to 2.0 μm specifically designed glass fibers for IRtransmission can be used.
For improved transmission over the entire range from 250 nm up to 3.0
μm quartz (fused silica) fibers are the best choice, but have a lower NA.
Transmission Characteristics of Optical Fiber Bundles
Although specific information on the performance of a single fiber is
valuable, it is important to understand how optical fibers perform when
manufactured into bundles. Due to total reflection, a portion of the
light will be reflected at the polished glass surface of the fiber at the
entrance as well as the exit. In addition, the interstitial gaps between
the fibers, usually filled with epoxy glue, will not transmit any light. The
losses due to these two effects can be estimated at appoximately 25 %
-30 %, depending on the polishing quality. The loss of the interstitial
gaps can be reduced by hotfusing the entrance end instead of glueing
the fibers together. Thus, transmission can be increased up to 15 %. In
addition, transmission loss will be caused with increasing length of the
lightguide. A 3-foot/1m lightguide will transmit approximately 60% of
the light emitted by the lamp towards the fiber bundle within the NA.
A 10-foot/3m light guide will transmit about 55% of the light and a
30-foot/10 meter lightguide roughly of 40 %.

Uniformity of Fiber Optic Products
SCHOTT North America, Inc. manufactures two product lines which
require a uniformity specification across a given area: lightlines, also
referred to as spot to line converters, or cross-section transformers and
backlights.
The uniformity of lightlines and backlights can be evaluated utilizing a
Machine Vision System:
· CCD area scan camera
· a framegrabber card
· image analysis software.
Uniformity of Fiber Optic Products
Backlights
The backlight is placed directly under the camera at a defined distance
based on the size of the active area. The camera will be focussed onto
the top surface of the backlight diffuser. Then the uniformity is
measured by using an area of interest (AOI) histogram. The AOI will be
slightly smaller than the active area to compensate for edge fall-off.
The light source used for backlight calibration is a DCR® III with an EKE
lamp.
Lightlines
Lightlines smaller than 16" (406 mm) in length are mounted on a 45
degree angle fixture. The fixture has a diffuser plate which is located
.5" (13 mm) above the fiber line. The line is projected onto the diffuser
plate, which is positioned directly below an area scan camera. The
distance from the camera to the diffuser is determined by line length
but is approximately 24" (610 mm). The camera's focus is adjusted to
the top surface of the diffuser. The uniformity is then measured by
taking a line profile of the image. The line profile will be approximately
.5"-1" (13 mm-25 mm) shorter than the product to compensate for
fall-off. The light source used for lightline calibration is a DCR® III with
a DDL lamp. The above information is an overview of our calibration
process.
Using these set-ups, backlights and lightlines will be calibrated to
predefined uniformity values. Details are provided on the individual
data sheets.

Lamp Intensity versus Lamp Life
Halogen Bulbs
All SCHOTT Halogen cold light sources (including the ACE®, DCR®III,
KL 1500 LCD, KL 2500 LCD and KL 200) allow the user to adjust light
intensity from zero to the full rated voltage of the lamp. However,
voltage to the lamp effects lamp life. As a rule of thumb, a 10%
reduction in voltage of most halogen lamps increases the anticipated
life time to 400%. SCHOTT recommends using the minimum intensity
setting needed to maximize the life of the lamp.
Lamp Intensity versus Lamp Life
The Halogen Cycle is the operating principle of all Quartz Halogen
lamps. At full voltage, the temperature of the glass envelope is hot
enough to keep evaporated tungsten (thrown off from the filament)
from collecting on the glass surface. The tungsten is cycled back to the
filament and thus increases its lifetime. As voltage is reduced, the
temperature of the glass envelope also decreases, which might effect
the halogen cycle. For this reason the lamp life might not be increased
as expected when the voltage is dimmed below 75%.
All types of quartz Halogen bulbs used in SCHOTT cold light sources
(DDL, EKE, EJA, EFR and ELC) operate in the same manner.
