New Family of Flashlights Provide Controlled Intensity Illumination For Industrial & Recreational Uses

Torrance, CA — LEDtronics®, Inc., the industry's most innovative LED lamp manufacturer, announces a new family of compact flashlights which use special solid-state Light Emitting Diode (LED) illuminator(s) to provide color and intensity-controlled illumination for a wide variety of industrial and recreational applications.

These flashlights designated as FlashLEDS, incorporate a solid-state LED lamp/s rather than an incandescent bulb, and can withstand severe vibration and shock without fear of lamp filament breakage. The unit will continue to work even if the lens cover should crack.

Wide-beam intensity models make it ideal for amateur and professional pilots, boaters, navigators, astronomers or anyone who is required to illuminate instruments, charts or inspect equipment under darkened conditions when night vision must be maintained. For example, a 565 nanometer green can illuminate a page at 30cm. and tests have shown that night vision is not impaired, even when the user looks directly into the beam of this FlashLED. Another group of models provide both safelight levels for narrow beam and wide beam viewing. They are ideally suited for amateur and professional darkroom workers, film processing technicians, radiology technicians and manufacturers of light sensitive materials who must illuminate optical equipment, chemical developers or automated machinery while maintaining safelight conditions.

The units incorporate a solid-state lamp which allow tight control of beam-width, illumination intensity and color temperature. Unlike safelight filters, the LED lamp does not change its transmission characteristics or fade in use. The narrow beam viewing device can illuminate a 1/4 page at 10cm. while the wide beam viewing unit can illuminate a full page at 10cm. Other FlashLEDS incorporate infrared LED lamps to provide high powered or narrow beam high powered intensities for security surveillance with infrared cameras and goggles. The high powered infrared unit illuminates a 5m square area at approximately 25m while the narrow beam high powered device illuminates a 3m square at approximately 60m.

Each FlashLED is constructed with a rugged, splashproof anodized aluminum case.They use two readily available AA alkaline batteries which will last at least 15 times longer than in incandescent flashlights. The LED lamp (illuminator) operates for more than 100,000 hours before requiring replacement. The FlashLED is available in safelight, medium and full intensity in eight visible colors (ultra-red through blue), five sunlight super bright colors (red, orange, yellow , green, blue) and four infrared wavelengths (850nm, 880nm, 881nm, 940nm).

Suggested list pricing the the FlashLEDS used by pilots and astronomers for reading , Model FLT-1008-X0X is $25.95 while the FlashLED used for night inspection, Model FLT-1006-X0X, is $29.95.
