Stockholm, Sweden—(October 5th, 2015) - MidBeam 2.0 is an extremely robust hand held lamp especially designed for use by heavy industries with very difficult operating environments. The light is compact in size, with four LEDs in a housing diameter of just 3.15 inches (8 cm)!

Unique Features of MidBeam 2.0:

  • IP68 Waterproof classification: Solids and liquids that often find their way into a light causing UV LEDs to burn cannot penetrate a MidBeam 2.0 unit.
  • Battery indicator: Four colors, green, yellow, orange and red signal the user when the batteries are over 75%, 50-75%, 25-50% and below 25% charged respectively. With less than 10% left the red signal starts flashing.
  • Operates while charging batteries: The battery version can operate like mains while charging the batteries via a connector at the back of the head.

Each light consists of 4 LEDs offering an extremely even beam. The switch located at the back of the head provides instant power. It is easy for the battery version to switch batteries. The location of the batteries (inside pistol handle) makes the ergonomics of the unit stable. Four batteries are provided and two are needed to operate. The design of the mains version makes it easy to support the light with a common stand on a bench. MidBeam 2.0 Standard and Aerospace is classified as a Risk Group 3 (High Risk) in accordance with IEC / SS-EN 62471.

The MidBeam 2.0 is available in three different versions, as Standard, Aerospace and Aerospace RRES 90061.

Standard Version: The MidBeam 2.0 Standard generates an intensity in excess of > 4 500 μW/cm2 (at 15 inches) and is equipped with a white light LED for after inspection. Battery life is 1.5 hours.

Aerospace Version: The MidBeam 2.0 Aerospace differs from the Standard version as follows:
A. The Aerospace version does not have a white light LED for after inspection.
B. The intensity of the Aerospace version is adjusted to never exceed 4 500 μW/cm2 at 15 inches.
C. The battery life of the Aerospace version is in excess of three hours.

Aerospace RRES 90061 Version: The MidBeam 2.0 Aerospace RRES 90061 generates an intensity of approximately 2 600 µW/cm2 (at 15 inches). While the remaining characteristics are the same as with MidBeam 2.0 Aerospace above, the optics of this unit is specifically designed to meet the Rolls Royce engineering specification RRES 90061. The beam profile is very crucial for the Aerospace industry. This UV light is specially developed to offer a beam that is extremely homogenous – without any footprints showing from the LEDs, shades, dark spots or other disturbing defects in the beam.
