EAGLEVILLE, PA, April 18, 2016–Streamlight® Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting, has increased the lumen output of its high lumen Portable Scene Light to 5,300 lumens. The updated light also now features a red low battery warning indicator.
Featuring a narrow footprint and a telescoping extension pole, the Portable Scene Light can be used almost anywhere by first responders and other professionals for scene lighting purposes, from wide, open places to tight, confined work areas.
“We have upgraded the Portable Scene Light from 3,600 to 5,300 lumens, to give users an even more extraordinary high lumen flood light,” said Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael F. Dineen. “This completely portable flood light can be conveniently carried and rapidly deployed in less than 30 seconds. It’s ideal for lighting large scale scenes, such as fires and major accidents, as well as for examining small, narrow spaces such as in mining and industrial inspections. With its long run times, the light can be used throughout an entire work shift without having to recharge the battery. And users now will be able to easily detect when the battery is running low with the light’s new low battery indicator light.”
The Portable Scene Light uses six C4® LEDs and wide-pattern parabolic reflectors to provide two selectable beam widths and three levels of light intensity, ranging from a super-bright flood beam to a low setting with ultra-long run times. The light features a rotating head that can be extended on a telescoping pole to an overall height of 72 inches, supported by stabilizing legs that can be quickly deployed and locked to provide balance on uneven surfaces. The light also features a 90 degree swivel neck, enabling users to aim the light beam precisely where it is needed for task lighting purposes.
On the high setting, the light delivers an incredibly bright 5,300 and a four-hour run time, over a beam distance of 410 meters. On medium, it provides 2,500 lumens, nine hours of run time and a beam distance of 292 meters. On low, the light runs for 18 hours and offers 1,300 lumens, and a beam distance of 215 meters. A selectable diffuser permits users to choose between the two beam widths, which are available with all three lighting modes.
The Portable Scene Light is powered by a zero-maintenance 12 volt, 14.4 Ah sealed lead acid battery that is rechargeable up to 500 times. The light can be charged to 90 percent of its capacity in 10 hours. Red and green LEDs provide charge status feedback. The light also will run indefinitely by plugging the included remote 10-foot power cord into a DC power source; an AC adapter is also included. A toggle switch allows users to switch between the battery and power source modes of operation.
Constructed from high-impact thermoplastic housing, the Portable Scene Light offers weatherproof construction. It features an IP67 design for dust-tight and waterproof operation to 1 one meter for 30 minutes. The light also is engineered to resist 40 MPH winds continuous in all directions with its head fully extended.
The Portable Scene Light light measures 22 inches in length and 6.5 inches in width, and weighs 25 pounds. It packs to a compact size for easy storage.
Available in international safety yellow, the light comes with a heavy duty shoulder carrying strap, AC charger, 12V DC cord and Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime Warranty. The MSRP is $1,149.00.
