Simply good light!
In the operating room, the right illumination is essential for success. The all new Polaris 100/200 surgical illumination systems provide cool light with natural colors and rich-contrast for thousands of hours of carefree operation without straining on your hospital's budget.
LED technology in the OR
LEDs are highly efficient light sources for surgical applications. Dräger has now combined the advantages of this innovative light source with a new, extremely compact, lightweight yet robust design that includes individual lens reflectors for enhanced output and shadow control. Even the little heat produced by the LEDs is regulated and dissipated by an integrated Thermal Management System. The maximum light head temperature (upper surface) will not exceed 35 °C*. With an average operational lifetime of 30,000 hours, this LED technology is as reliable as affordable.
The Polaris 100
The all new, highly compact Polaris 100 features 48 LEDs with an output range of 40,000 to 120,000 lux. A special mode provides ambient light from a single LED to support minimal invasive procedures. The sleek yet very sturdy light head weights just 13 kg and makes positioning exremely easy and comfortable. Without any moving parts in the light head this system requires almost no maintenance. With a color temperature of 5,600 K, which corresponds to natural sunlight at noon, this OR light achieves a color rendering index of Ra 95 and a color rendition index of R9 93, which ensure rich contrast and natural color image without compromising the red tones.
The Polaris 200
Without changing the external dimensions or design, the Polaris 200 gives you additional 18 LEDs for a total of 66. This translates to a maximum output of 160,000 lux. The light intesity can be easily dimmed down to 40,000 lux. Color temperature and rendering index are identical to those of the Polaris 100.
Each LED is equipped with its own lens reflector system. The homogenous light column of both lights provides the surgeon with a shadow-controlled, contour-rich, natural color view of the surgical field.
Compact design, simple operation
The classic round design includes integrated handles for nonsterile personnel and touch panel controls for easy handling and operation. Sterile personnel can position the Polaris 100/200 easily with the central sterile handle. Each of the four clearly marked control buttons performs a single function, and an optional, wall-mounted control panel is also available. The smooth, seamless casing makes cleaning quick and simple, while its lightweight construction ensures practically effortless positioning.
Easy installation and maintenance
The straightforward design philosophy of the Polaris 100/200 makes installation and maintenance very easy. The light heads are controlled by the proven Powerline Communication (PLC) system.
