From high powered metal halide to cool & quiet LED or tungsten halogen models, our range of light sources is unsurpassed in the industry.
The light source (which is often also called a fibre optic projector or fibre optic illuminator) provides the illumination to any fibre optic lighting system. They contain the lamp or LED and any additional control gear to provide special lighting effects.
Light sources are the only part of a fibre optic system which contains electricity, and they are the only part that, depending on the type, can get warm to the touch.
From the tiny MicroLED range to the massively powerful Sirius, we have an LED light source to suit any size of project.
Our classic range of metal halide light sources. Powerful enought to light the longest fibre runs and with multiple control options.
Cool running and quiet tungsten halogen light sources for smaller projects and for use in museum and gallery lighting projects.
At UFO we believe in providing our customers with products that are hard wearing and durable, that is why each of our light sources are designed and built in-house using the highest quality parts available. When purchasing a light source from us, we want you to be confident that you are purchasing a product of unsurpassed quality that will last the test of time.
Our services don't end once you have received your purchased product. Due to our in-house technical capabilities, we are able to provide you with a range of after-sales services to help maintain the life and condition of your light source. These services include the servicing and repair of your light source.
To ensure that you are getting the most from your unit, we recommend that it is serviced regularly. If you do not have an in-house maintenance team, UFO can offer a service visit by one of our UFO installation engineers. A fully trained member of our team will visit your premises where the light source is installed and will give it a thorough visual check and clean. This will usually involve checking the common ends to make sure that no damage or burning has occurred, giving the filters a thorough clean and replacing the lamp or any other internal parts that require maintenance work to be carried out. Alternatively, light sources can be returned to UFO for servicing in house.
If at any point you encounter a problem with your UFO light source then we can offer a full diagnostic inspection and repair service. In the first instance a UFO engineer would contact you to discuss the problem and to ascertain if it can be fixed over the phone. If the issue cannot be resolved there and then, we would arrange for the unit to be returned to our dedicated light source manufacturing facility where a diagnostic inspection will be carried out. A UFO engineer will contact you to discuss the outcome of the inspection and to let you know if the unit can be repaired or needs to be replaced.
