Spectronics Corp. has unveiled the Spectroline OPTIMAX 365, a cordless, rechargeable true UV LED flashlight ideal for industrial leak detection. When used in conjunction with Spectroline fluorescent dyes, it is easy to pinpoint leaks in hydraulic systems, lubrication systems, pipelines, condensers, water storage tanks and more. The OPTIMAX 365 utilizes ultra-high-intensity LED technology to produce a nominal steady-state UV-A intensity of up to 50,000 µW/cm² at a distance of 6 in. (15 cm). Powered by a rechargeable NiMH battery, it provides 90 minutes of continuous inspection time between charges. The LED lifetime is 30,000 hours.
