The Spectroline® OPX-3000 Optimax™ 3000 is a powerful, portable, super-high intensity blue LED fluorescent leak detection flashlight. With its focused beam, the flashlight makes it easier for technicians to pinpoint all refrigerant leaks - even those elusive leaks that are missed by other lamps and by other methods of leak detection, claims the company. According to the manufacturer, the flashlight uses breakthrough super-high-flux LED. Its power equals that of 150-W lamps that must be plugged into an ac power source, and it has an inspection range of up to 20 feet (6.1 m) or more. Powered by a rechargeable NiMH battery, the unit has a 50,000-hour LED life. There are no cords that can become snagged on components of air conditioning and refrigeration systems. The flashlight comes with fluorescence-enhancing glasses and an ac and dc battery charger for added convenience.
