Pelton & Crane provided a wealth of data regarding its Helios LED Operatory Light.

Here are some of the highlights that showcase its benefits versus traditional halogen lighting:

 - Energy efficiency – Reduce energy by approximately 70% when moving from halogen to LED

 - Cool operation – No risk of burns to staff, no uncomfortable heat for staff or patients

 - Long lifespan – LED lifespan of about 30,000 hours (12-15 years) on average versus 1-2 years for halogen bulbs

 - Cost savings – Save on utilities due to energy efficiency, and total cost of ownership due to long lifespan (no more bulb replacements!)

 - Consistent light output – LED light pattern is consistent throughout, no adjusting for hot spots often seen with halogen lights

 - Crisp 3”x6” light pattern – Reflective technology enables a defined light pattern that stays out of patients’ eyes; halogen patterns are not as crisply defined

Dr. Lance Panarello on Pelton & Cranes’s Helios

The Helios being first to the market and having a great reputation was an easy choice for us. The crisp, 3”x 6” light pattern makes it easier to view all areas of the oral cavity, as well. The light is brighter and much more focused to where we need it.

Helios is an easy answer: less energy, less heat, less money over time.
