KEMP, Texas, Sept. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Larson Electronics' Magnalight announced today the addition of the HL-85-3W1-IR Infrared LED spotlight to its available line of infrared LED lighting equipment. This handheld infrared LED spotlight can operate on any voltages ranging from 9 to 32 VDC and comes with an included 16 foot coil cord and cigarette plug to allow portable connection to most types of vehicles and equipment equipped with cigarette plug sockets. Extremely durable and capable of producing an infrared light beam reaching up to 1,800 feet in length, this IR spotlight is ideal for military and law enforcement applications using night vision equipment.
The HL-85-3W1-IR Infrared LED spotlight from Magnalight provides a powerful and effective infrared light source capable of illuminating objects up to 1,800 feet away. Available in 850nm and 940nm versions, this pistol grip LED spotlight is ideal for use with night vision equipment and produces enough IR illumination to discern details and identify persons at the far end of its range. Designed for durability and high output, the housing on this unit is constructed from impact resistant nylon with a light head formed from machined aluminum with an unbreakable Lexan lens to protect the LED and reflector assembly. The 3 watt infrared LED in this unit is rated for over 50,000 hours of operation and produces an IR light beam approximately 1,800 feet in length by 175 feet in width. This light can operate on any voltage from 9 to 32 VDC and includes a 16 foot coil cord with cigarette plug, allowing the unit to be connected to most 12 volt civilian and 24 volt military vehicle and equipment electrical systems. This infrared LED spotlight can be easily field serviced without tools and contains heavy 16 gauge internal wiring and heavy duty connectors which can be accessed through a simple snap on cover. The materials used in constructing this unit are UV, water, impact, and chemical resistant and the total power draw on a 12 volt electrical system is a mere .5 amps. The high power, light 10 ounce weight, and extreme durability of this unit make it a perfect choice for operators in military, law enforcement, and security operations who require an effective IR light source that can augment and improve their existing night visioning systems and equipment.
"The pistol grip style, low voltage handheld infrared light is available in 850nm or 940nm infrared," said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics'Magnalight.com. "While traditionally we have targeted the military and hunting markets for our infrared products, we have learned that there are numerous infrared lighting applications for manufacturing, non-destructive testing and inspection. To meet these expanding markets we scaled down our larger infrared emitters, i.e. the LEDLB-80X2E-IR, into an easy to hold, easy to move, form factor that operators can bring to bear on large or small parts."
