Streamlight Inc. has introduced the compact Night Com UV flashlight that features six UV LEDs to provide ultraviolet light for a variety of detection purposes. The new light also provides a white LED for general and distance use.

Offering three separate lighting modes, the lithium battery-powered Night Com UV features a white C4 LED, and a total of six UV LEDs, including three 365 nanometer and three 390 nanometer UV LEDs.

"The Night Com UV is specially designed for professionals such as police officers who rely on ultraviolet light for detecting fraudulent documents or checking driver's licenses," said Ray Sharrah, Streamlight's president and chief executive. "The light also is equipped with a powerful white LED for general purpose and distance use."

A mode-selection switch allows users select between a high-, low-power white LED setting, or the UV LED setting. The light also features a safety mode so the light can't be turned on by mistake during transport.

The light's C4 LED has a textured reflector that provides a widespread beam and a sharp hot spot for distance use. It's rated to operate for 50,000 hours. It produces 115 lumens and 4,200 candela peak beam intensity on the high setting, and 50 lumens and 1,600 candela on the low setting. On the UV setting, the combined six UV LEDs provide 24 mW measured system output. That setting would extend the operating life to 100,000 hours.

On high, the light provides 4 hours, 15 minutes of continuous run time. On the low setting, the Night Com UV runs for 13 hours, 30 minutes of continuous use. On the UV setting, the light runs for 10 continuous hours.

Powered by the two included CR123A lithium batteries, the Night Com UV weighs 5.44 ounces, measures 5.40 inches in length, and features an unbreakable polycarbonate lens. The flashlight also features a casing of machined aluminum with a matte black anodized finish and a non-slip knurled grip. The light's push-button tailcap switch provides for "momentary on," "hard click on," and "off" operation.

The Night Com UV is IPX4-rated for water-resistant operation and is impact resistance-tested to one meter. Openings are o-ring sealed. The light retails for $90 and comes with a high-strength wrist lanyard.
