WESTBURY, N.Y. - Spectronics Corporation has unveiled its new OPTIMAX™ — the world’s most powerful, portable fluorescent leak detector. The OPTIMAX makes it easier than ever for technicians to pinpoint all refrigerant leaks — even those elusive leaks that are missed by other lamps and by other methods of leak detection.

And there are no cords that can become snagged on components of AC&R systems.

The OPTIMAX uses breakthrough super-hi-flux LED technology to deliver 10 times brighter leak detection light than regular LED lights. Its power is equal to that of 100-watt lamps that must be plugged into an AC power source.

The lamp is powered by a rechargeable NiMH battery that provides more than six hours of operation between charges. The OPTIMAX makes all manufacturers’ fluorescent dyes glow much brighter, so a technician does not have to waste time trying to match a dye to the right lamp for best results. The OPTIMAX has an inspection range of 20 feet (6 m) or more. The lamp comes with an AC battery charger and fluorescence-enhancing glasses.
