UV Lamp

The Ultra-Affordable, Battery-Operated UV Lamp

The economical B-260 long wave UV lamp is precision engineered to give you super performance for many years. Its 6-watt, self-filtered UV tubes emit a nominal 365nm intensity of 500 μW/cm2 (single tube) or 850 μW/cm2 (dual tubes) at 6 inches (15 cm). This portable, battery operated lamp has a number of built-in features which allow you to use it anywhere, including a 6-volt rechargeable battery, an AC charger and a charging cord. The lamp has a comfortable, contoured carrying handle that provides easy reach to the power switch. It’s built to withstand tough use with a durable, high-impact plastic housing and stainless-steel tube guard that protects against accidental breakage.

The durable B-260 is ideal for countless applications, including quality control, laboratory UV dosing and illumination, sanitary inspection, mineralogy, readmission control, rodent contamination detection, UV curing, forensic inspection, document verification and much more.

The B-260 is powered by one rechargeable 6-volt lead-acid battery that provides up to five hours (dual tubes) or seven hours (single tube) of continuous operation. The battery is rated for 200 to 1,000 charge/ discharge cycles depending on the depth of discharge. A red LED indicator light shows when the charger is operating. The battery is designed to last 4 to 5 years under normal conditions. Recharging is simple - just plug the charging cord into an AC outlet and let the unit charge for approximately 24 hours.
