NIGHTSEA base

The NIGHTSEA lamp base is available in three versions: Standard, DIM, and PULSE. Only one control option is available per base. The DIM and PULSE options can be purchased as part of a new system, as a retrofit to an existing base, or in a stand-alone lamp base purchased a la carte.

Standard lamp bases provide a steady light when turned on. DIM lamp bases feature an OFF/ON/DIM switch to change the intensity of the light. PULSE lamp bases incorporate a BNC connector that accepts a voltage signal to control the excitation source ON/OFF.

NIGHTSEA DIM Option

The DIM option adds a combined switch and dimmer control. When you first turn the unit on it is at full power. As you rotate the switch the intensity decreases, reaching about 30% power at the minimum setting. You have finer control in the brighter portion of the adjustment range. An intensity indicator (1 - 10) makes it easy to record and repeat preferred settings.

NIGHTSEA PULSE Option

The PULSE option adds a BNC connector on the rear of the base that accepts a user-supplied voltage input to turn the light on and off. Some possible applications are

  • External control (computer, function generator, etc.) for precise illumination timing for photoactivation, behavioral experiments
  • PWM input for light dimming
  • Footswitch for hands-free operation - contact EMS for details

Specifications

  • Voltage input - 2.8 - 6.0 VDC for ON, 0.6VDC OFF
  • Maximum operation frequency - 10kHz
