Daylight Company’s New ESD Ultra Slim Magnifying Lamp Provides Full Protection Against Static Charges
The Daylight Company, the world’s leading maker of high quality specialty and magnifying lamps, is introducing its ESD Ultra Slim Magnifying Lamp, which provides full protection against static electricity and electrostatic discharge (ESD).
The Daylight ESD Ultra Slim Magnifying Lamp (Model U22091, $379.99), available at the end of April, features 28-watt efficiency with the combined power of a seven-inch wide glass magnifying lens and 1.5-inch diopter swing arm lens, while giving complete protection against ESD events. With 6,500 kelvin light spectrum and super magnification, it is believed to provide the strongest light and largest lens system on the market today. The entire lamp — head, lens, joint and arm — is fully grounded and has special dissipative materials to remove static charges and prevent build up of static electricity. The lamp has been independently verified as suitable for use in Electrostatic Protected Areas (EPA – IEC 61340-5-1 and ANSI/ESD 20:20).
This lamp helps solve one of the biggest problems facing manufacturers, testing agencies, repair facilities and other industrial users – how to work in environments that are prone to electrostatic discharge (ESD). This sudden momentary flow of electric current between two objects caused by direct contact can damage electronic circuits and components. ESD is a serious issue in solid state electronics and this lamp prevents it. Anyone working around products and equipment used during the assembly or inspection of susceptible materials should consider this lamp.”
“Users in a wide range of industries have begun ordering this lamp because it can be used in clean rooms and other sensitive environments,” according to Steve Pomeroy, Daylight’s Vice President for Sales. “The lamp uses special coatings and materials that stop the build-up of electrostatic fields and prevent the attraction of particles and ESD. And, of course, it offers other distinctive Daylight qualities — the best natural light and magnification, ease of use and robust construction in a very sleek and slender body.”
Mr. Pomeroy added: “The lamp provides bright Daylight™ light equivalent to 150 watts, but uses just 28 watts of power with an energy saving tube and electronic ballast. The lenses use precision optical white glass and its Quick Lens Swap System™ enables users to change magnification quickly.
