Spectronics Corporation, the originator of LED lamps for fluorescent inspection, is proud to re-lease the Vintage 365 (SPN-VIN365): a pistol-grip, LED UV-A inspection lamp for non-destructive testing.  The trademark of the Vintage lamp is its classic appearance; the housing and handle are modeled after Spectroline’s original HID-bulb lamps.  While the outside of the lamp ap-pears “vintage,” the inside is anything but.

A cutting-edge product, the Vintage 365 provides a quality lamp at a cost-effective, economic price. This lamp has all the features you need for fluorescent inspection without the unnecessary frills. The

SPN-VIN365 is an inspection lamp in its purest form: a high-performance lamp head perched atop an ergonomic handle. This lightweight unit, made of metal and durable plastics, weighs in at only 2.1 lbs. (0.95kg).

Beneath its classic design, the SPN-VIN365 provides all the benefits of modern LED-technology. The lamp has 2 powerful UV-A LEDs behind long-lasting lenses, which protect against solarization. LEDs are cool-running, so they do not require any fans or warmup time. With the flip of the switch, the lamp provides a wide, strong, uniform beam pattern. Its nominal steady state intensity is 5,500 µW/cm² at 15 inches (38cm). The coverage area encompasses a large 8-inch (21cm) diameter at 15 inches (38cm), with a minimum UV-A intensity of 1,200 µW/cm². Each lamp comes with a unique Certificate of Light Output, signed by a Quality Control manager and guaranteeing the lamp’s performance meeting ISO 3059 specifications for NDT inspection.

Like listening to the rich sounds of a vinyl record, there is something nostalgic and satisfying about using the Vintage 365. Veteran NDT technicians will be delighted to rediscover their favorite lamp has been rebooted with modern technology, while newer inspectors will herald this their new favorite tool.
