Olympus BX41 LED Upgrade. 


This LED illuminator replaces the original Olympus BX41 illuminator. Provides a whiter, brighter light than the original, while consuming 90% less energy and generating 90% less heat. Intensity control is continuous from 0-100%. Problems with heat damaged bulb sockets, connector and power supply failure are all eliminated. Never change bulbs again. Don’t waste money on a new microscope because of a bad illuminator. Your “old” microscope probably has better optics and mechanics than a new one. You can keep your perfectly good microscope working for a fraction of the price of an inferior new one. Bring your Olympus BX41 microscope up to date. Replace the old BX41 microscope light with a new Nanodyne LED system. All  illuminator systems include the power supply and required cables. Everything required for the illuminator is included. Your new  illuminator will add decades of useful life to your microscope.

Olympus BX41 LED Retrofit Power Supply

  • Olympus BX40 Microscopes are failing daily because of bad power supplies. These are wonderful microscopes with crisp images and reliable mechanical systems. But once the power supply dies, the scope is worthless, they are no longer available through Olympus. We have the capabilities to replace the original bad power supply with a 6v 30w high quality dimmable power supply utilizing the original dimmer. This replacement power supply fits inside the original case, dims as usual and uses the original fuses, plug, lamp, socket, dimmer and lamp house. The preset switch and green intensity leds are no longer used on this power supply replacement. All units are tested for 24 hours and guaranteed for one year from date of replacement. Send us the stand minus the head, stage, condensor and objectives. We will return the unit within a week. USPS shipping is added, or your UPS shipper number. No returns accepted on this item. We have no way to guarantee correct installation by end users.
