Nitebeam 900F

Ever since the increase in security threats around the world there have been heightened awareness on the part of customs officers of potential hazards passing through airports. Flashlight owners in particular have experienced some difficulty in their efforts to acquire 18650 rechargeable batteries from a country other than the one in which they reside.These Li-ion rechargeable batteries not only deliver more juice to the Cree LEDs but can be recharged and reused over a significant period of time. It is very welcomed therefore when you are presented with the option of owning a neat flashlight which offers the options of using both AAA and 18650 power sources. The Nitebeam 900F is labelled as a “focusable” flashlight since you can access the light’s brightness levels by pulling and pushing on the head as well as via a click of the side switch. When you operate the flashlight using the switch a reset function kicks in reverting back the light to high mode after it’s been turned off.

The flashlight can be powered by one 18650 rechargeable battery or three AAA batteries with the use of a cartridge. The Nitebeam 900F has a runtime of two hours in high mode. The flashlight is constructed of aircraft grade aluminium alloy. The flashlight’s LED produces a maximum output of 900 lumens and three light modes: High 900 Lumens; Med -450 Lumens; Low 90 Lumens.

Colorlight, Eldsberga 2010-05-05

IMTRA has introduced the Colorlight high-output searchlights which feature a dual light head platform and offer unparalleled and unlimited horizontal and vertical movement. Operators have the flexibility to choose dual light beam models that allow half or full power with built-in redundancy in case of bulb outages; or models with two different light spectra technologies within the same fixture for maximum flexibility.

Designed specifically to endure a harsh marine environment, each light fixture can be controlled independently or in unison, manually or via a preset program. In addition, for applications that require heat signature imaging, Colorlight searchlights can be factory-configured to include a thermal imaging camera installed between the two light housings, maximizing equipment utilization while conserving space on the bridge roof.

Colorlight searchlights feature paired light housings that can be fitted with a number of different lighting technologies, a key differentiating feature of the brand. For maximum brightness, range and “daylight” color temperature, efficient and exceptionally bright HMI (hydrargyrum medium-arc iodide) lamps are available. For moderate range applications, the Colorlight digital LED models feature very low power consumption and 50,000-hour lamp life. Low-frequency UVA (ultraviolet) “black light” lamps have proven extremely effective in poor visibility conditions and for oil spill detection. The popular UV lamps can be operated alone or in combination with other lamps within the same-paired unit.

Colorlight searchlights also feature coated parabolic reflectors that provide over 90% light transmission efficiency, and a beam angle that can be focused steplessly throughout a 3- to 20-degree range. The searchlights have unlimited, 100% vertical and horizontal maneuverability, and dual axis stepless speed control of 0 to up to 33 degrees per second. The IP66 acid-proof stainless steel housing can be mounted upright or hanging upside down. Automatic control options include sweep, surveillance, fixed-position and network synchronization.
