Title (EN) ENDOSCOPE COMPRISING A LIGHT SHIELDING MEMBER BETWEEN CAMERA AND LIGHT SOURCE
(FR) ENDOSCOPE COMPRENANT UN ÉCRAN ENTRE UNE CAMÉRA ET UNE SOURCE LUMINEUSE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An endoscope (1) has imaging apparatus at one end of a support rod (10) including a camera (40) and LEDs (41) mounted in a recess under a transparent end cap (32). An optical barrier (42) of a optically- opaque compressible material, such as a foam, rubber or silicone extends across the recess between the camera (40) and the LEDs (41) to divide the recess into two optically-isolated regions and prevent light leaking directly from the LEDs to the camera. The optical barrier (42) is held in compression between the floor of the recess and the underside of a transparent window (34) formed by the end cap (32).
(FR)L'invention concerne un endoscope (1) comportant un appareil d'imagerie à une extrémité d'une tige de support (10) comprenant une caméra (40) et des DEL (41) montées dans un évidement sous une coiffe transparente (32). Une barrière optique (42) conçue dans un matériau compressible optiquement opaque, tel qu'une mousse, un caoutchouc ou une silicone qui s'étend dans l'évidement entre la caméra (40) et les DEL (41) pour diviser l'évidement en deux régions d'isolation optique et empêcher les pertes de lumière directement des DEL à la caméra. La barrière optique (42) est maintenue en compression entre le fond de l'évidement et le dessous d'une fenêtre transparente (34) formée par la coiffe (32).
