Comparative Brightness Of Fiber Optic Illuminators

We took 60í loops of the S-SB126 and ran them to an X20-75, SL100, S150-8 and a DEL 250-8 illuminator to see how the units compare in brightness under the exact same conditions. As you can see, the difference is dramatic.

This is how we set things up

Some movies that show all of this:

This next series shows several different illuminators in different colors. We placed them in order of brightness, left to right. 
Some colors were different between illuminators so we did the best we could.

We were doing some testing and showing a customer how bright the different illuminators would be on a bridge when we snapped this picture.

This series shows two parts of the brightness calculation: cable and illuminator.  We took the same illuminator and put two types of cable in it and then we took a very minimum system to show how bright it was(nít) compared to the more robust system.

Comparison between a 150W HID illuminator with S-SO75 on the left, a 150W HID illuminator with S-SO40 in the middle and a 75W halogen with S-SO40 on the right.
