Streamlight Inc., maker of high-performance flashlights used by firefighters and first responders worldwide, has developed two new lights, one with a built-in laser and the other a hands-free, low hazard headlamp.
The first, called the Twin-Task 3AAA Laser Combo, is a compact and lightweight, featuring multiple lighting modes and a laser pointer.
The light is the newest in the company’s Twin-Task series, a machined aluminum model with patented Xenon/LED combination for brightness and extended run times.
“The Twin-Task – 3AAA Combo lets emergency professionals choose between incandescent mode when high-intensity light is needed, such as in dark, smoky conditions, and LED mode for extended use, when lighting an accident scene, for example,” said Streamlight Chief Operating Officer Ray Sharrah. The light also features a laser pointer for precisely targeting the source of a problem, Sharrah added. At 5.38 inches, the 3AAA Combo is also compact, allowing rescue professionals to carry it in a pocket or on a belt for easy reach, according to Sharrah.
The Laser Combo light features a Xenon bulb that can be adjusted for spot-to-flood focus, five ultra-bright white LEDs that last for 100,000 hours, and a pre-focused red laser cartridge. It has push-button, three-position lighting, including a Laser/Xenon bulb setting with adjustable focus, an LED-only setting and a Laser-only setting. The laser pointer features a useable range of approximately 100 feet when in the Laser/Xenon position and approximately 100 yards in the Laser-only mode.
The Xenon bulb provides up to 57 lumens (typical) of incandescent light for a maximum of 2 hours and 15 minutes, while the five white LEDs offer up to 21 lumens (typical) of LED light for up to 12 hours, according to Streamlight.
With an enhanced knurled grip, the Twin-Task – 3AAA Laser Combo features a machined aluminum, heavy duty drop-tested construction, with an anodized finish that is water resistant and guards against corrosion damage. Standard O-rings protect against moisture damage. Included is a carrying holster, as well as a wrist lanyard.
Streamlight has also introduced a hands-free 3AA Haz-Lo Headlight, which has received the Underwriters Laboratories Inc. Division 1 safety rating.
“Firefighters deserve to have the security of knowing their flashlights will perform under the most hazardous conditions,” said Sharrah. “Streamlight’s 3AA HAZ-LO headlight gives them that assurance when they are battling fires, especially where there is high potential for explosive substance hazards.”
Sharrah said the new headlight “combines an impact and weather resistant resin casing, unbreakable polycarbonate lens and the exceptional brightness and reliability of the 1-watt Super High Flux LED. The combination of a hands-free, virtually unbreakable light with sustained super-bright light gives firefighters a valuable tool while working in dark, smoky conditions.”
Underwriters Laboratories Inc. approved the 3AA HAZ-LO headlight for meeting the hazardous location safety standard with Division 1 designation, which covers its use in areas where flammable gases or liquids may be present under normal operating conditions.
