The Enova journey of innovation began in 2003, before “LED surgical headlights” were a reality.

Dr. Sushil Gupta was performing surgery when his gown caught fire from the heat of a fiber optic cord. Then the Chairman of Surgery at Guthrie Clinic, Dr. Gupta was inspired to develop a new LED portable technology—one that would remove the restraint and restriction of fiber optic surgical headlight systems, reduce the pain caused to the neck and back from heavy fiber optic cords, and improve the light degradation and color associated with Xenon and Halogen light systems.

Dr. Gupta, also a former Professor of Surgery at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Associate Professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School, approached Enova Medical Technologies and began working with its group of medical technology engineers. In 2005, this team launched the surgical headlight industry’s first LED headlight called the Halo 5000, which featured two LEDs and emitted 50,000 lux.

Since 2005 Enova has been innovating and mastering LED illumination for a variety of surgical practices from superficial to deep cavity surgeries, and has developed LED surgical headlights for all surgical disciplines and procedures. Over the years this LED surgical illumination company has introduced five new generations of products including:

12005Halo 500050,000
22006Halo 600060,000
32007Iris D-100100,000

62012Cyclops XLT-125125,000
72015Cyclops XLT-225225,000*
*the worlds brightest LED surgical headlight


The Cyclops XLT-225 is the world’s brightest LED surgical headlight available. It is also lightweight, perfectly balanced on the head, durable and comfortable. In 2015, Enova also introduced two new digital lithium ion battery packs—the PP2 and the PP4—which are proven to maintain the longest battery life on the market, with a range of between 4 and 24 hours.
