Streamlight to Debut Portable Scene Light at FDIC

Streamlight Inc., a provider of high-performance lighting, will debut an industrial-duty, high lumen Portable Scene Light at Booth 2339 at FDIC 2014, April 10-12, at the Indiana Convention Center, Indianapolis, IN. Providing up to 3,600 lumens, the new light features a narrow footprint and a telescoping extension pole, enabling fire and rescue personnel to use it almost anywhere for scene lighting purposes, from wide, open places to tight, confined work areas.

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.

“The Portable Scene Light is a completely portable high lumen flood light, giving firefighting personnel and other first responders an amazingly bright scene light that can be conveniently carried and rapidly deployed in less than 30 seconds,” said Streamlight President and Chief Executive Officer Ray Sharrah. “It’s ideal for lighting everything from large-scale fires and accident scenes to illuminating small, narrow spaces in rescue operations. And with its long run times, it can be used throughout an entire work shift without having to recharge the battery.”

On the high setting, the light delivers an incredibly bright 3,600 lumens, 31,000 candela and a five-hour run time, over a beam distance of 352 meters. On medium, it provides 2,400 lumens, 20,000 candela and nine hours of run time and a beam distance of 283 meters. On low, the light runs for 18 hours and offers 1,100 lumens, 11,000 candela and a beam distance of 210 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. The 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 shoulder carrying strap and Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime Warranty. The MSRP is $999.00.
