  • The SpectraCore LED soft light is ideally suited for Fine Art Reproduction, Cultural Heritage Imaging, and Proofing. Custom LED phosphors provide extremely accurate color at 98 CRI without the damaging effects of UV and IR energy.
  • Low Operating Temperature
LED cores typically operate at 210°F. The SpectraCore 180 core was designed to operate at a significantly lower temperature, typically 150-160°F. This extends the operating life and working conditions of the LEDs. It also assures that there will be minimal temperature radiated to the ambient environment, making this is ideal for photographing rare and fragile art work

  • ULTRA HIGH COLOR RENDERING INDEX (CRI) VALUES
A high CRI of 98 (Ra) means SpectraCore 180 has an excellent
response over the entire visible color spectrum. The
most challenging colors for most LED lights are R9 (red) and
R12 (blue). As you can see in the chart below, SpectraCore
achieves values of 96 and 92, respectively.
  • (Accessory Part Number Part #:  CB-SCC $495)  SpectraCore Connect is an external control unit used with SpectraCore lighting to add smartphone dimming and flash strobe capability. Multiple SpectraCore LED lights can be daisy-chain controlled from one SpectraCore Connect – up to 20 lights from one controller.  SpectraCore Connect includes two smartphone channels. You may operate one channel to dim each.
  • (Accessory Part Number Part #:  CB-SC-VP $65) The SpectraCore VESA Plate provides a quick and easy way to disconnect a SpectraCore LED light from your light stand or other mounting hardware. The VESA Plate attaches with 100mm spaced metal thumbscrews to the back panel of the SpectraCore light. To attach third-party mounting hardware to the SpectraCore VESA Plate, there are also 75mm VESA-compatible holes and a 3/8” threaded centered nut. This will allow for posts and brackets to attach to the SpectraCore VESA Plate for use on light stands, C-stands and other poles and brackets.

Product Description

SpectraCore 180 is ideally suited for Fine Art Reproduction and Cultural Heritage Imaging.

The quality of light determines the accuracy of your captured color. The SpectraCore LED soft light was designed with custom LED phosphors to provide the most accurate color capture possible.

UNIFORM LIGHTING
SpectraCore 180 offers very even lighting throughout,with no hot spots. It is extremely bright, measuring 5600 lux @ 1 meter (when not dimmed).

NATURAL VIEWING TEMPERATURE
Single color LEDs offer a higher level of color accuracy than blended LED lighting. SpectraCore 180 is a single source LED light at 5000 kelvin, which offers a very balanced light—neither warm nor cool. This “neutral daylight” color temperature is visually accurate, even in reds and blues. An added benefit is that 5000K is the graphic arts viewing standard, so the SpectraCore 180 can also be used for proofing, when dimmed to 2000 lux @ 1 meter.

LOW OPERATING TEMPERATURE
LED cores typically operate at 210°F. The SpectraCore 180 core was designed to operate at a significantly lower temperature, typically 150-160°F. This extends the operating life and working conditions of the LEDs. It also assures that there will be minimal temperature radiated to the ambient
environment, making this is ideal for photographing rare and fragile art work.

FLICKER-FREE, EVEN WHEN DIMMED
SpectraCore 180 features smooth flicker-free dimming from 5% to 100%, while maintaining the same CRI levels and color temperature (kelvin) at any brightness level. SpectraCore 180 does not use pulse-width modulation, which can cause flickering in many LED lights. 

UL LISTED IN THE US AND CANADA
SpectraCore 180 has been independently tested and certified for fire, electrical, and mechanical safety by UL.
