Strategos International LLC has released a new weapon-mounted light designed specifically for close-quarter combat, the PEL-6 Secutor.
The PEL-6 Secutor, named after a class of gladiator in ancient Rome, uses a CREE LED that produces more than 120 Lumens of bright white light. Featuring a patented user interface of a rotating tailcap, the flashlight enables the user to program constant-on modes thus enabling functions to be activated with one hand. The user does not have to alter his grip to push buttons or rotate bezel rings to achieve immediate tactical functionality.
Operators can easily adjust the Secutor's levels of light from low (variably and fully adjustable) to its high-output disorienting strobe light. The original Secutor design was one of the first to incorporate rapid strobe disorientation into a handheld, everyday flashlight. The strobe function was designed to affect adversaries by reducing or eliminating their ability to maintain balance, peripheral vision and depth perception, thus allowing operators to act quickly and maintain situational awareness.
The Secutor is designed for officers requiring a high-quality lighting tool for high-risk environments. It uses an interface of the rear tailcap rotating selector switch to access each group of functions allows the user to change functions and operate the light with one hand leaving the other hand free to perform other tasks, such as operating a firearm.
Many lights available for the tactical market have a series of button pushes or rotation of a separate switch at the bezel end of the light. These interfaces do not allow the operator to access any desired tactical function very quickly with one hand and require a series of rotations and/or "morse code" type series of button pushes to access the correct function.
The Secutor's Momentary- and Constant-On switches are easily accessed with a one- or two-finger rotation of the tail cap. The lock-out system on the Secutor prevents the light being accidentally activated in high-risk diminished light situations and also when storing the light. The Secutor is easily activated from the lock-out position under duress with the snap of the thumb or fingers.
Featuring more stable electronics to prevent unintentional battery drain and provide better programming stability, the new Secutor also has a surface coating made from a super durable ceramic that prevents scratches better than the previous model.
Now available at Strategos International's order site, the new LedWave PEL-6 Secutor comes with a two-year warranty on all parts and a lifetime warranty on the LED.
