The pE-Driver is often required to control compatible CoolLED Illumination Systems in NIS Elements.

The exception is when using the CoolLED pE-800 Series with Windows 10 (since Windows automatically detects the hardware and installs a driver).

For Windows versions pre-dating Windows 10, or if using any other compatible Illumination System, follow the instructions in this video to learn how to download and install the pE-Driver.

NIS Elements supports several CoolLED Illumination Systems, including:

pE-800 Series


pE-300white , pE-300ultra



This video shows you how to install and use a compatible CoolLED Illumination System NIS Elements, including how to set up an experiment. The pE-Driver is first required for many setups; please see the video above for guidance.
