The UL100WB is a versatile illumination system capable of generating three different configurations by properly combining the supplied accessories:
Reflected Light: characterized by soft and uniform illumination
Glazing Light: suitable to enhance the surface roughness details
Dark Field: recommended for samples with translucent parts or when the sample borders are of primary interest

Please read this full review to understand the Versatile Illumination System: https://enrico-bonino.eu/cylindric-led-lighting-system-ul100wb/
The illumination system is specifically designed to be used in macrophotography to picture small samples such as microfossils, foramminifera, small insects and minerals.
It can be used in conjunction with stereomicroscopes as long as they guarantee sufficient room between the optics and the reference plane.
The illumination system can be directly powered by a power supply or, to enable a more precise light intensity control, by an OGGLab controller by using proper cables with specific connector adapters.
On top of the pictured configurations, additional combinations are obtainable by properly combining the available accessories.
In order to support the reflected light configuration, two domes with different heigths and diameters are available to maximize the compatibility with different optic systems and sample sizes. Would the sample height be significant, two extensions are provided which help to concentrate the light on the top most part of the sample. A reflector disc improves the efficiency of the dome with Ø 60mm. by minimizing the losses due to the smaller diameter.
The same reflector is used while in the glazing light configuration with the exception of the two domes which are subsituted by two truncated cones inclusive of the extensions for tall samples.The light shield and the extensions are the same as for the reflected light configuration.
The dark field configuration is obtained by swapping the internal reflector with a reflector ring so that the sample inciding light is the one internally reflected by the properly mirror polished cylinder inner part.
Note about the controllers: If you only plan to use this UL100WB, I would recommend you to choose selection 1, 2 or 3 for the controller.
1: On/Off only over the power supply
2: On/Off over the 3 way controller
3: On/Off and dimming function over the 2 channel dimmer controller
Selection 4 and 5 only makes sense, if you would also use this controllers with the EB120DB, which has more channels.
