Improved vision: The A-dec 500 LED dental light floods the oral cavity with light. Most dental lights today only provide a light intensity of up to 25,000 lux. The A-dec 500 LED dental light provides 30,000 lux, the highest level of illumination recommended by dental operatory ergonomic specialists.

Accurate tissue analysis: By producing a Color Rendering Index of 94 at 5,000K, A-dec has achieved a new breed of LED that mimics nature. See tissue in pure light for accurate, consistent diagnoses.

Illumination without curing: The cure-safe mode on the A-dec 500 LED dental light provides brilliant yellow light at 25,000 lux intensity, enabling the dental team to work effectively without curing photo-initiated resins.

Unparalleled ergonomics: Designed for comfort, the A-dec 500 LED dental light easily glides into the exact position needed for optimal illumination during any procedure.

Sustained eye health: A uniform light pattern with feathered edges minimizes shadowing and reduces eye strain and fatigue.

Low heat, no noise: Because the A-dec 500 LED dental light doesn't emit heat or require a fan for cooling, it's both comfortable and quiet.

Low cost of ownership: The A-dec 500 LED dental light consumes 80% less power than halogen lights, with a life expectancy of 20 years.

A-dec Dental Equipment Requirements
For a light head upgrade, you must have an A-dec flexarm on an A-dec light manufactured after 1993.

Compatibility exceptions apply for the A-dec Performer dental light. For details, consult with your authorized A-dec Dealer or Customer Service Representative.

Touchpad Control
If your delivery system includes an A-dec touchpad utilizing A-dec's Data Communication System (DCS), all A-dec 500 LED light modes and functions are available from the touchpad. Without an A-dec DCS-compatible touchpad, the A-dec 500 LED dental light is operated via local switching.
