Thorlabs offers two options for general lab lighting. The PSY240 and PSY240E LED light strips can be mounted underneath a rack or a shelf, such as our ScienceDesk™ Overhead Shelves, and are ideal for illuminting a large work area. These 850 mm (33.46") long light strips are held in place by three spring clips. The PSY240E is shipped with a 4.3 m extension cable for compatibility with our Laminar Flow Enclosures. The PSX501 is a compact, battery-operated LED light source with a flexible neck for easy positioning and illumination of the target area.

Please Note: These accessories are compatible with our current ScienceDesks (SD Series) and cannot be used with our former generation (PS Series) products sold before March 2009.
