Compact UV LED torch – ultraviolet and ultrapractical
Universally applicable UV-LED flashlight
The lightweight UV-Torchlight 5F with a robust housing made of a high-strength aluminium alloy is a versatile UV LED torch for leisure and professional applications since its UV emitting range of 380 to 385 nanometres is perfectly suited for many common fields of application.
Even when you are on the move, the UV-Torchlight 5F allows you, among others, to quickly and easily check the safety features on identity documents and banknotes, to analyse conspicuous features in works of art by means of UV light, or to have hygiene inspections and controls carried out by cleaning personnel.
Furthermore, using fluorescent fluid additives, you can also locate leaks in fluid-bearing lines, for example in motor vehicles and indoor installations.
Naturally the UV-Torchlight 5F is also perfectly suited for geocaching applications at night and for hygiene checks in the kitchen, bathroom and hotel rooms since its nine ultraviolet high-performance LEDs do not only visualize UV colourants but also traces of dried blood, sweat and other fluids. This way, pet owners can easily check whether their pets are house-trained.
Due to a length of under 10 cm, the UV-Torchlight 5F fits into even the smallest pocket and is therefore always at hand. Moreover, it can be switched on and off easily via the convenient end cap switch.
UV‑Torchlight 5F – exactly on your wavelength!
You are looking for a robust UV torch for geocaching and other applications? Then the UV-Torchlight 5F is exactly on your wavelength!
There are countless types of UV torches – and many of them look similar at first sight, which often makes a comparison even more difficult. Therefore, pay attention to the processing quality and the right wavelength for your application needs.
Within the UV range, 380 nanometres represent the border to visible light. UV torches with 390 to 410 nm thus contain a very high proportion of visible light and only a small amount of UV light, which is decisive for the light excitation of fluorescent substances.
With an excitation maximum of 380 to 385 nm, the UV-Torchlight 5F lies exactly in the right UV radiation range for many common control applications as well as for geocaching. Since the UV-Torchlight 5F is also extremely compact and robust, it is the first choice for all users looking for a UV-A torch with maximum mobile application flexibility and an optimum value-for-money ratio.
Differences to hand-held UV-A lamps for professional applications
Hand-held UV-A lamps such as the UV‑Torchlight 5F or the UV‑Torchlight 15F were specifically designed to fit the application requirements for the commercial detection of fluorescences, for example for the location of leaks in fluid-bearing systems or the non-destructive tracer detection during material testing.
The production expenses are significantly influenced by three essential performance parameters: emitted cone, range and radiation wavelength. The broader the emitted UV light cone, the higher the illumination range and the lower the radiation wavelength, the more cost-intensive is the production of these devices.
Our professional hand-held UV-A lamps offer a maximum radiation intensity of 365 nm, which represents the optimum excitation wavelength for many common fluorescent fluid additives for leak detection or powders for material testing.
Owing to their broad emitted cone and the significantly higher range, fluorescences can be visualized across extensive areas even under normal lighting conditions.
