Safelights, X-Ray, Darkroom

Definition : Lights designed to provide illumination from parts of the visible spectrum to which x-ray sensitive materials are nearly or completely insensitive under dark room conditions. These safelights use a low-wattage bulb (e.g., 7 to 15 watts) to reduce damage or fogging to the x-ray materials, located inside a lamp housing. A safelight filter is mounted over the lamp opening in the housing and filters the light produced by the bulb making the device safe for use with photosensitive materials. They are available in different sizes, shapes (circular, linear) and configurations (wall-mounted, ceiling-mounted, portable, penlight). Darkroom x-ray safelights allow x-ray technologists to see in dark rooms.
