WESTBURY, NY–(Marketwired – May 09, 2016) – Locating and repairing aircraft leaks is a difficult, time-consuming process. To avoid equipment downtime and wasted time, Spectroline’s powerful OPTIMAX™ 365 (OPX-365) is a cordless, rechargeable, UV-A LED flashlight ideal for identifying leaks in fuel, lubrication and hydraulic aviation systems.

This lamp features an ultra-high intensity UV-A LED, which makes all leak detection dyes glow brightly…even in dirty fluids. It is four times brighter than other high-intensity leak detection lamps and has an inspection range of up to 25 feet (7.6 m). Powered by a rechargeable NiMH battery, the flashlight provides 90 minutes of continuous inspection time. An Electronic Intensity Stabilizer maintains high UV output between charges. The LED lifetime is 100,000 hours.

The OPTIMAX™ 365 is extremely compact and lightweight, weighing just 11.8 ounces (335 g). Its ergonomic design provides ultimate comfort and freedom of movement during inspections. The flashlight has a corrosion-resistant, anodized aluminum lamp body and stands up to years of heavy use. Just a push of a button turns the lamp on instantly at full power.

Included with the lamp are UV-absorbing spectacles, a belt holster and smart AC and DC battery chargers, all conveniently packed in a padded carrying case. The AC charger is available in 120V, 230V, 240V or 100V versions.
