WESTBURY, N.Y. - Tracer Products has introduced the Tracerline OPTIMAX 365, a cordless, rechargeable true UV (365 nm) leak detection flashlight featuring ultra-high-flux LED technology said to be state-of-the-art.

This high-intensity UV lamp is said to work with all truck and automotive systems and fluorescent dyes, including difficult-to-fluoresce yellow dyes. It easily pinpoints oil leaks in diesel engines, even when the oil is extremely dirty, Tracer says.

The flashlight is lightweight and compact, weighing 11.8 oz (335 g). Its inspection range is 20 ft (6.1 m) or more. The flashlight has a corrosion-resistant, anodized aluminum lamp body for durability.

Powered by a rechargeable NiMH battery, it provides 90 minutes of continuous inspection time between charges. The LED lifetime is 30,000 hours. It comes with UV-absorbing spectacles, a belt holster, and 'smart' AC and DC battery chargers, all in a padded carrying case. The AC charger is available in 120V, 230V, 240V or 100V versions.
