Hi Shirley, yes to answer your question it does plug into the white connector (4 pin connector on the left side of head) that your current florescent tube light does now and will turn on and off with your machine power.  But, you also have a switch on the LED lighting system board that allows you to have the white, Ultraviolet (black light), or completely off (center position).  

Thanks,

Mike

RnS Designs has the little and the Long add-on led lights, or stand-alone that can be used anywhere,

under cupboard for counter,  by a phone, and I am also under the impression can be used as a

night light.

The LED2 was designed specifically for the APQS machines.  It provides over 40 white LEDs and 18 ultraviolet LEDs in a concentrated area directly under the head, either available by toggling the switch.  The in-line power supply plugs into the existing fluorescent connector so running an extension cord to a power supply plug, on a moving machine, isn't required.  

 

Add on LED strips is another good option.  Typically they require a splitter for each strip added at the power supply connection, so be sure to get those if you choose this direction.  These also do not plug into the existing fluorescent connector but must be run off the moving head to an extension cord (or a Laser receptacle on later models if you have it).  This is certainly another option but depends what your looking for.

Mike,

 

this is an interesting solution.  I like that you can switch to black light like you can on the newer machines.  How does the brightness compare to the brightness of the flourescent on the machine now.  I need good lighting but I HATE that florescent bar in my way.  It always obstructs my view and I'd love to get rid of it.

Thanks Heidi it was received, current shipping is running 3 weeks but I'm working on reducing that currently.  You will love the improved view and lighting.

 

Hi Cathy the light system does not interfere with the Micro-drive handle/bracket.  The light system slides in behind it, just under the head portion only. 

 

Thanks,

Mike

Mike, I love this. I currently have one I threw together with the connectors, and used 3m tape. It's "OK", but yours looks so much better.

I will be placing an order!!

I do have a question

 

The In-line 12vdc power, if purchased.  Does the battery in there ever need to be recharged? Or, what is the life expectancy if going that route?

I'm asking, because electrical is NOT my thing. LOL!!

 

Never mind. after re-reading, I answered my own question. The 2nd plug in to where the old fluorescent was. LOL!

Mike, I used my Credit Card and got a confirmation, but my email is not set up on my laptop, nor is it working on my dang I-phone for some reason. Did you get it? I've NOT rec'd any notification.
