Jotron Launches Multi-Purpose Strobe Light

May 29, 2002

Norwegian Jotron Electronics a.s introduces a new multi-purpose strobe light to be used as a personal safety equipment. The new handy pocket-sized rugged strobe light incorporates the very latest technology and weighs only 150 g, including batteries. The AQ-5 has two light sources: a high intensity xenon strobe light plus a low power torch. The high intensity strobe has a light output of 36 000 Pk lumen with a range of up to 6 nm and still an endurance of 12 hrs of continuous strobe operation. As a torch, it even has an endurance of 60 hrs of continuous operation. It runs on twin standard AA/LR6-sized alkaline batteries for easy replacement. It is activated manually by a large and rugged activation switch, or, optionally, by an automatic seawater contact. The AQ-5 fulfils the high standard of NATO AQAP4 and is waterproof down to 50 meters. It is thus ideal to use in the harsh marine environment e.g. on vessel decks, fishing boats, offshore installations, yachts and by divers as an emergency light, marker and torch. In a man-overboard situation, the AQ-5 marker becomes vital safety equipment for an easier search and rescue operation. “Since this new AQ-5 also is a low power torch, it will be used on a daily basis and thus the emergency strobe light is always present in people’s pockets or on belts, ready to be used in an emergency situation.”, says Product Manager Arne Berdal.
