Looking at the keypad, what does the R, B, and C stand for?
  • R is for ramp curing. 100-1,000mW/cm2 in 10 seconds, and over 1,000 mW/cm2 for the last 10 seconds
  • B is our boost mode. Using the 8mm turbo + light guide, your output will exceed 1,000 mW/cm2
  • C is our continuous mode. The light will remain on with a beep every 10 seconds until the trigger is pulled
In the boost mode, what is my cure time?

We recommend using the hardness disk which was enclosed with your light. Our findings were 4.69mm of composite were cured in 10 seconds using Prodigy.

What is a hardness disk?

This disk is made of a barcol hardness of 75 which Is the acceptable bottom hardness of a well cured restoration. The disk is 3mm deep. Express your composite in one of the apertures and cure for 10 seconds. Reverse the disk, and using a sharp carbide carver scratch both the bottom of the composite and the disk. Compare hardness. If the composite is cured, they will feel the same.

Will the Optilux 501 cure all composites?

Yes, the bandwidth is between 400 and 515 nanometers.
