Spectronics Spectroline Opti-Lux 400 designed to emit less visible light
May 1, 2013 – Spectronics Corp.’s new Spectroline Opti-Lux 400 is a rechargeable, violet light LED leak detection flashlight, designed to emit less visible light so industrial fluid leaks are easy to spot by their bright fluorescent glow. The Opti-Lux 400 features a high-output LED that causes dyes to fluoresce more brilliantly and with greater contrast, says Spectronics, than with standard blue light inspection lamps. It has power comparable to high-intensity 150W lamps and works with Spectroline Oil-Glo 33 (green), Oil-Glo 44 (yellow/green) and Oil-Glo 50 (red) oil-based dyes, as well as WD-802 (green) water dye. The unit is compact and lightweight, allowing it to get into cramped areas, and its inspection range is upwards of 25 feet. The corrosion-resistant, anodized lamp body promises to stand up to years of heavy use. Powered by one rechargeable lithium-ion battery, it provides four hours of continuous inspection between charges. The flashlight comes complete with a lanyard, rechargeable battery, charging cradle, AC and DC cord sets, and fluorescence-enhancing glasses.
