Kenall Launches New Red LED Luminaire to Reduce Dark Cycle Disruptions in Animals

Until now, red vivarium lighting has been achieved by applying filtering films to white lights – an unreliable and expensive method of providing a uniform diurnal lighting cycle for lab animals. Now, Kenall Manufacturing, a leader in specialty sealed enclosure lighting for over 50 years, is introducing the SimpleSeal™ Narrow Spectrum Red LED for vivariums – the industry’s first true red LED light.

The red LED circuit provides limited, or narrow, spectrum light for photosensitive vivarium applications and also allows for much better visibility over commonly-used filtering films. “The 630 nm wavelength red LED luminaire is less expensive, more reliable and lasts longer than incumbent technology and, as a result, helps maintain the health and well-being of laboratory animals by reducing dark cycle disruptions. This helps protect valuable research outcomes,” said Kenall’s Product Marketing Manager, Timothy Stevens: “We’re excited to introduce this product, because this is exactly the kind of precise application at which SimpleSeal™ luminaires excel. SimpleSeal luminaires are designed with an IP65-rated continuous-gasket system that makes them ideal for laboratories, cleanrooms and containment rooms.”

A new addition to the award-winning SimpleSeal™ luminaire portfolio, the Narrow Spectrum Red LED luminaire is sealed to protect against particulate contamination and maintain the integrity of pressurized plenums.

Other Key benefits of the SimpleSeal Narrow Spectrum Red LED include:

  •     Flexible control; switchable between red or white light

  •     Control light cycles throughout your animal facility via independent powering and dimming (1-100% range) of the white and red circuits

  •     Reduced glare via the fixture’s diffused, high-efficiency lens

  •     Universal grid/flange housing for assured ceiling compatibility

  •     Suitable for all Biosafety levels (BSL 1-4)
