    LED cold light source from Heiland Electronic

    Hello,

    I am looking for some feedback from people who use LED cold light source from Heiland Electronic not the Spligrade System.
    I am thinking about one to replace my Zone VI Type II VC head which is not very bright and powerfull.
    Thanks.

    As far as I know the Heiland LED source won't work without the SplitGrade Controller.

    I had my enlargers converted to the Heiland LED source and it's been a fantastic switch. Juergen Heiland was wonderful to work with in custom-converting my 12x16 enlarger that had a 5000w head. The technology is just superior and my printing/exposing is far more efficient now. I would highly recommend the switch if you're considering it.

    Look at the top of page 4 here:


    Heiland offers a control unit for its LED light source that works with standard timers and analyzers. The Splitgrade controller no longer appears to be mandatory.

    Thanks Michael. For sure I am considering it. Zone VI VC Head is a very good one and I am using it for years now but REALLY TOO LONG printing time !

    Very welcome! There are several advantages to the Heiland LED cold light source beyond faster exposures. Your ability to manipulate exposures by going in between paper grades and to adjust your power on the control box makes fine tuning a print much more efficient. I've found the switch to be worth every penny.

    Best,

    Michael
