The IEC 'Hodson' Light Box and Optical Set is a comprehensive kit of parts to explore experiments in basic optics and colour blending. It has been copied in many countries around the world, but the original is still the best quality and the best value for money.

Robustly designed to take the rough handling of students, the lens adjuster cannot be removed by students and the mirrors are efficient and virtually unbreakable. The colour filters and plates are heat resistant.

The unique lamp socket holds a 12Vx30W QI lamp with 4mm sockets for a second light box to be connected, enabling one IEC power supply to drive two light boxes. The cables include moulded, stackable banana plugs.

Packed in a tiered polystyrene box to keep all lenses, prisms and slabs clean, protected and easily accessible.
All parts are available separately.

• Light Box with adjustable collimating lens for the production of parallel beams and rays together with two swinging mirrors for colour blending.
• Set of 3 double ended slit formers to form rays through single, double, triple and 4 slits. Plus a wide slit for creating spectra and a blank to shut off the light.
• Set of 8 moulded plastic colour filters: Red, Green, Blue, Yellow, Orange, Cyan, Magenta and Violet
• Set of 8 non-transparent colour plates: Red, Green, Blue, Yellow, Orange, Cyan, Magenta and Violet

Recommended power supply: For best results, a power source of 12 Volts at about 3 Amps (either AC or DC) is required to run the IEC Hodson Light Box. Either an adjustable power supply or a simple transformer can be used.
