In the operating room, the right illumination is essential for success. The Polaris® 100/200 surgical illumination systems provide cool light with natural colours and rich-contrast for thousands of hours of carefree operation without straining on your hospital‘s budget.
LED technology in the OR
LEDs are highly efficient light sources for surgical applications. Dräger has now combined the advantages of this innovative light source with a new, extremely compact, lightweight yet robust design that includes individual lens reflectors for enhanced output and shadow control. Even the little heat produced by the LEDs is regulated and dissipated by an integrated Thermal Management System. The maximum light head temperature (upper surface) will not exceed 35 °C*. With an average operational lifetime of 50,000 hours, this LED technology is as reliable as affordable.
* At a room temperature of 20 °C.
The Polaris 100
The all new, highly compact Polaris® 100 features 48 LEDs with an output range of 40,000 to 120,000 lux. A special mode provides ambient light from a single LED to support minimal invasive procedures. The sleek yet very sturdy light head weights just 13 kg and makes positioning exremely easy and comfortable. Without any moving parts in the light head this system requires almost no maintenance. With a colour-rendering index Ra of 95 and a colour-rendering index R9 93, the Polaris system offers you a contrast-rich and natural illumination without compromising red tones. The Polaris 100/200 lighting system can be equipped with warm white, neutral white or cold white (4,400 K, 5,000 K or 5,600 K) LED lights.
The Polaris 200
Without changing the external dimensions or design, the Polaris 200 gives you additional 18 LEDs for a total of 66. This translates to a maximum output of 160,000 lux. The light intesity can be easily dimmed down to
40,000 lux. Color temperature and rendering index are identical to those of the Polaris 100.
Each LED is equipped with its own lens reflector system. The homogenous light column of both lights provides the surgeon with a shadow-controlled, contour-rich, natural color view of the surgical field.
Compact design, simple operation
The classic round design includes integrated handles for nonsterile personnel and touch panel controls for easy handling and operation. Sterile personnel can position the Polaris 100/200 easily with the central sterile handle. You can either choose between the sterilisable or sterile handle, depending on your infection prevention concept. Each of the four clearly marked control buttons performs a single function, and an optional, wall-mounted control panel is also available. The smooth, seamless casing makes cleaning quick and simple, while its lightweight construction ensures practically effortless positioning.
Easy installation and maintenance
The straightforward design philosophy of the Polaris 100/200 makes installation and maintenance very easy. The light heads are controlled by the proven Powerline Communication (PLC) system.

The mobile Polaris 100/200
The mobile Polaris light can be used as an additional single light in the OR – for example, for cardiovascular interventions where the patient has to undergo several procedures at the same time. Of course the high-quality mobile light can also be used in the ER or in treatment rooms. The mobile Polaris 100/200 is especially useful when it is not possible to install a fixed, ceiling-mounted light due to unsuitable infrastructure. The trolley features a fully closed cover, which ensures the light is easy to clean. The rear double castors are equipped with locking brakes.
With the Polaris light your hospital is equipped with state of the art, high performance LED technology combined with a functional, high quality design. The Polaris is approved as both a surgical light and a treatment light and is available with a choice of light intensity and colour temperature. With up to 160,000 lux and a smooth cardanic mounting for exact positioning, the mobile version has no functional limitations. Height adjustment supported by pneumatic springs allows for effortless adaptation to transport and operating conditions. In the fully extended position a working height of 2,175 mm is reached under the light head – ideal also for tall surgeons. The transport height of the Polaris 100/200 Mobile, however, is only 1,850 mm.
In the event of a mains power failure, the integrated battery provides uninterrupted power to the light with at least three hours guaranteed supply. As soon as the battery falls below a charging state of 25 % – this equals a remaining operating time of approx. 45 minutes – you will be warned by an integrated, acoustic reminder message. LED status indicators on the trolley also show the status of the power supply and state of charge of the battery.
