Peacocks install innovative Skytron Aurora II LED Surgical Lights at Freeman Hospital, Newcastle


Back to News & Events

The Freeman Hospital in Newcastle have chosen Peacocks Medical Group with their partner Skytron Europe to provide the surgical lighting solution for their current theatre upgrade.

Peacocks working together with the NHS Trust will have aided in the refurbishment and upgrade of four Cardiothoracic operating theatres with the installation of four Aurora II LED triple surgical lights with camera systems

The Skytron Aurora II Hybrid LED surgical light system is truly “The Best of Both worlds” through combining advanced fixed focus and focusable LED technologies in to one ultimate high performance surgical lighting system.

Key Features fo the Skytron Aurora II - 

The AUR 7 has 7 LED pods within its head to provide a light of up to 160,000 lux.
The Aurora II uses 3rd Generation LED technology to provide optimally Bright, Cool and Colour Correct lighting, without the need of multiple coloured LEDs to provide a amalgamated white light.
Selectable Colour Temperature
Colour correct temperature of 4,000K or 4,500K can be flexibly determined case by case (or during the surgical case), based upon each surgeon’s individual needs and preferences. It’s like having two lighting systems in one!
Dynamically focusable, satellite LEDs combine with high intensity fixed focus Centra LEDs to deliver superior, deep cavity illumination, without shadows.
Aurora II provides Direct Surgeon Control of Intensity and Focus.
Advanced Vertically Segmented Reflector Design (VSRD) Optics greatly enhances the lighting performance of each LED. VSRD optics produce a multitude of lighting segments that culminate together to create a premium quality of bright and cool, high intensity illumination without shadows.
Aurora II LED provides feather-light maneuverability along with continuously 360° infinite rotation at all points of articulation; including 20° upward vertical movement for taller surgeons. In addition, Aurora II provides 90° downward flexibility to deliver bright, cool and colour correct lighting where it is needed most.
Heat Management
Aurora II Hybrid LED optics utilize multiple, suspended LED light sources that protect each LED against heat degradation. Heat is the number one enemy of LED performance and longevity. Aurora II’s superior light head design suspends each LED, protecting it against the build-up of heat.
Green Credentials
Aurora II provides high-intensity, cool surgical lighting without breaking your energy budget. Eco-friendly Hybrid LED lights require less than half the energy of traditional halogen systems. LEDs last a minimum of 10 years.
