A new light emitting diode (LED) operating room (OR) light produces perfect infra-red free light, with excellent color temperature and low power consumption.

The STARLED7 NX LED is composed of 49 next-generation LEDs circularly placed and split into seven reflectors (with 7 LEDs in each one), and other 8 LEDs positioned radially around the handle. Light field dimensions are controlled via an optoelectronic management system that has no mechanical parts, adjusting field diameter to assure excellent sharpness of details in the operating area. Another important innovation is the microprocessor-controlled ACRIS system, which regulates the STARLED7 NX electrical output curves so that the power remains unaltered over time, ensuring that the LEDs maintain a longer life cycle of around 50,000 hours.

The high illumination level reaches 160,000 lux, with a color rendering index of 95 and a color temperature of 4.500 K, allowing it to reproduce the exact chromatic scale of the colors of the human body. An ambient light-up ENDO system situated on the upper part of the lamp provides adjustable illumination levels according to the different use, and is particularly suitable during minimal invasive surgery (MIS) by visualizing the microscopic operating field as well as the surrounding environment clearly.

All functions are managed via the digital I–SENSE control panel positioned on the Cardanic shaft structure, controlling power, light intensity, light spot diameter dimension (focusing), the ENDO light, and depth of field for full visualization of the operating field and deep cavities. An optional SYNC mode is available to synchronize controls among combined lamps, such as a STARLED7 NX twin dome configuration, and STARLED7 NX with STARLED5 NX or STARLED3 NX lights. An optional remote control is useful for managing all the functions from a distant position.

Lamp position is ergonomically adjustable via both a central and lateral handles, assuring stability and constant illumination even during movement. The removable and sterilizable central handle can also house a video camera; thanks to ACEM-Video-System-Management (AVSM), the STARLED7 NX is compatible with all the cameras and monitors offered by ACEM. The lamp has been designed taking in consideration laminar flow and IS manufactured with a smooth and resistant material that makes cleaning quick, easy, and complete. The STARLED7 NX LED is a product of ACEM Medical Company (Bologna, Italy).
