LED flashlight detects refrigerant leaks

Spectronics Corporation has unveiled the Spectroline OPTIMAX 365, a cordless, rechargeable, true ultraviolet LED flashlight ideal for refrigerant leak detection in all types of air-conditioning and refrigeration systems.

The OPTIMAX 365 features an ultra-high intensity UV LED, which makes all leak detection dyes glow brightly. It is four times brighter than other high-intensity leak detection lamps and has an inspection range of up to 20 feet (6.1 m). Powered by a rechargeable NiMH battery, the flashlight provides 90 minutes of continuous inspection time. LED lifetime is 30,000 hours.

Compact and lightweight, the OPTIMAX 365 weighs 11.8 ounces. Its ergonomic design provides comfort and freedom of movement during inspections. The flashlight has a corrosion-resistant, anodized aluminum lamp body and stands up to heavy use. A push of a button turns the lamp on instantly at full power.

The OPTIMAX 365 comes with UV-absorbing spectacles, a belt holster, and smart AC and DC battery chargers, all packed in a padded carrying case. The AC charger is available in 120-, 230-, 240-, or 100-volt versions.
