The new Starlight ASO (Adjustable Spectrum Output) uses three independently adjustable nanometer ranges to increase screen-exposure flexibility. Each range can vary light output from 0%-100%, and operators can increase or decrease gain (intensity) to best match each emulsion. Operators can also fine tune exposure intensity on sensitive and fast-acting emulsions.
Starlight is NuArc’s versatile and affordable tabletop or stand-mounted UV LED screen exposure unit. It’s ideal for conventional exposures, and an optional CTS retrofit kit turns Starlight into a computer-to-screen (CTS) UV LED screen exposure system. Starlight's UV LEDs save energy costs, reduce screen exposure time, speed up production, and operate at far lower temperatures than metal-halide lamps. And, unlike expensive metal-halide bulbs that require replacement every year or two, Starlight's UV LED light source can last for decades. In fact, M&R is so confident in the longevity of Starlight's screen-exposure LEDs that it backs them with a limited lifetime warranty against failure in normal use. And the high density of M&R’s screen-exposure LEDs (6840 on Starlight 3140 and 4320 on Starlight 2331) provides the finest detail, the most uniform coverage, and the quickest exposures available. M&R’s Starlights have more than three times as many LEDs per square inch as some competing products.
