Streamlight Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting tools, introduced the Dualie® 3AA Color-Rite®, an intrinsically safe, high-performance LED flashlight that provides the option of bright, white light or high CRI light with Streamlight’s Color-Rite Technology® for true color recognition in industrial, automotive and other applications. The compact, hand-held light, which is powered by easily sourced AA batteries, is safety-rated for use in Division 1 environments faced by many professionals; it is also ATEX and IECEx-certified for use in Zone 0 locations and InMetro approved.
The dual beam light includes a high-power white LED for bright area illumination and a High Color Rendering Index (90 CRI) LED with Streamlight’s proprietary Color-Rite Technology to better see the color spectrum. It offers three output modes: a spot beam for distance illumination, a soft, wide flood beam to illuminate work areas and to aid in true color recognition, and a combined spot and flood beam.
“The Dualie 3AA Color-Rite provides the option of bright white light for illuminating large areas, or a high CRI beam that is ideal for auto detailing and painting, differentiating colored wires, spotting finish imperfections or other tasks that require exacting attention to detail,” said Streamlight Chief Revenue Officer Michael F. Dineen. “With the Dualie 3AA Color-Rite, users have two lights in one.”
The new light’s spot beam provides 225 lumens and 8,000 candela over a 179-meter beam distance, while the flood beam delivers 175 lumens, 380 candela, and a 39-meter beam distance. The combined spot and flood beams offer 320 lumens, 7,000 candela and a 167-meter beam distance. The light includes separate dual head switches for easy user activation of either function. The two beams can be activated simultaneously by depressing both switches.
Run times for the Dualie 3AA Color-Rite are 8 hours in spot mode, 8.5 hours in flood mode and 5 hours when the beams are combined. The light is powered by three AA size alkaline or lithium batteries.
The lightweight Dualie 3AA Color-Rite is constructed from an engineered polymer resin that is impact- and chemical-resistant and features an unbreakable polycarbonate lens with a scratch-resistant coating. It offers a superior, slip-resistant grip texture that is both comfortable and easy to use with gloves. Its rugged, integrated, snag-free clip conforms to the body of the light and grabs easily onto shirts, pockets and other gear for hands-free use.
The Dualie 3AA Color-Rite weighs 6.6 oz. and measures 7.00 inches in length. The light is IP67-rated for dust-tight and waterproof operation to 1 meter for 30 minutes. It is available in high visibility yellow, while the ATEX/IECEx and InMetro models are available in international safety orange.
Dualie® 3AA Color-Rite® models range in MSRP from $75.00 -$95.00 and come with Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.
