DV Condenser

Introduced: 195x
Discontinued: 2014

DV Condenser Lamphouse

The DV Condenser lamphouse is probably the type most familiar to Omega users,  having been in production for more than 50 years.  As well, quite a number of the older type lamphouses have been converted to DV specification using the DV Conversion kits.  While the basic design has not changed over all those years, there have been a number of cosmetic changes.  It has appeared in both black and grey trim, for instance, and the front label has changed numerous times over the years. 

The DV lamphouse has been sold with the D2, D3, D5, Super D6, Pro-Lab II and D5500 enlargers.  It originally had the same spring-loaded struts on the condenser door as the Zoom lamphouse, but this was abandoned long ago in favour of the simpler magnetic latch.

Used Advice:  Since the DV lamphouse had such a long production run, all parts for it are available.  Even old units that have been converted to DV can be easily serviced.  Used lamphouses should simply be checked to determine that they're in good working order and complete.
