Magnaflux Introduces New Vibrance® EV5000 UV-LED Black Light

New light's Innovative design delivers up to 50,000 hours of bulb life, is 30% lighter and 90% more energy efficient than traditional UV lights, and comes individually tested & certified to a wavelength of 365 + 5nm.

GLENVIEW, Illinois - Magnaflux, a division of Illinois Tool Works (ITW) and a global leader in NDT products, equipment and quality technologies announces the introduction of the VIBRANCE® EV5000 UV-LED Black Light. The new light provides a breakthrough in both UV-LED and traditional mercury vapor light technologies by incorporating up to 50,000 hours of bulb life into four high output LED clusters.

"That's almost 20 years of functional operating life under normal NDT inspection conditions, without having to worry about bulb replacement," said Ray Berry, Magnaflux Accessories Product Manager. "At that rate, based on traditional mercury vapor bulb performance and replacement cost, the VIBRANCE® EV5000 will pay for itself long before one of its LED clusters needs replacing. Add the fact that it's 90% more energy efficient to use than mercury vapor and it's easy to see why so many of our customers are excited about the opportunity to switch over."

Long bulb life and cost savings are just the beginning of the advantages offered by the innovative new VIBRANCE® EV5000 UV-LED Black Light, however. Each light has been individually tested and certified with a wavelength of 365 + 5nm and comes with a certificate of compliance and unique serial number. To further emphasize the level of quality built into the equipment, Magnaflux is providing original purchasers with an industry leading limited lifetime warranty that includes FREE use of a loaner light for the duration of any service work performed - WOW!

NDT professionals who use the VIBRANCE® EV5000 UV-LED Black Light will no doubt become the light's biggest advocates. Extremely rugged, yet weighing in at only around two pounds, the EV5000 is 30% lighter than traditional UV lights currently on the market. An ergonomic handgrip and angular design place less stress on handheld users (a
built-in eyelet is provided for fixed positioning), significantly reducing operator stress and fatigue throughout the testing process. Cool running LEDs and a unique convention driven heat dissipating design that prevent any risk of burns while eliminating the need for a cooling fan, further reduce weight and energy costs to round out the light's features.
