This LED illuminator replaces the original Nikon Optiphot-2 illuminator. Provides a whiter, brighter light than the original, while consuming 90% less energy and generating 90% less heat. Intensity control is continuous from 0-100%. Problems with heat damaged bulb sockets, connector and power supply failure are all eliminated. No more bulb replacements. Problems with heat from the halogen bulb are eliminated, as are bulb changes. All the old components for the lighting system are replaced. Don’t buy a new microscope for thousands of dollars because of a bad illuminator. You can keep your perfectly good microscope working for a fraction of the price of an inferior new one. All Nanodyne illuminator systems include the power supply and required cables. Everything required for the illuminator is included. Your new Nanodyne illuminator will add decades of useful life to your microscope.

The standard system mounts the Nanodyne illuminator to the back of the filter holder retaining the ability to use standard filters. If you wish to eliminate the filter holder, specify that you want the optional 5 hole adapter.  See the links below for Included Items and Installation Instructions for more details.
