An improved wide-beam LED UV inspection lamp, the EV6000, is being introduced to aerospace and other NDT industries, enabling quicker and easier flaw identification via fluorescent illumination. The specially designed LED array of the EV6000 UV lamp casts a 9-inch (23 cm) round spot at a 15-inch (38 cm) distance from the testing surface, which is double the beam width of other aerospace-rated lamps. The new lamp is built by Magnaflux, a division of Illinois Tool Works (ITW) and a global leader in NDT products, equipment and quality technologies, a leader in UV lamp design.
The EV6000's LED array is designed to cast uniformly bright illumination, and the stable intensity of the LEDs meets the ASTM E3022 and Rolls-Royce RRES90061 standards. New industry standards for LED inspection lamps were finalized last autumn, and the EV6000 meets these recent benchmarks. The EV6000 features the industry's widest LED beam width, and the lightweight and compact housing features user-replaceable front shield and UV filter.
The EV6000's 1-year warranty is substantially longer than that of a mercury vapor lamp, and it features a durable sealed housing with an LED cooling system. The EV6000 is about one-third less weight than a conventional mercury-vapor lamp, and it is balanced for less user fatigue when the lamp is handheld or repositioned.
Using an efficient LED array, the EV6000 requires only 0.6 A current, adding to portability and flexibility of testing environments. The EV6000 handle ball mount works with standard Magnaflux mounting systems.
