A: Abbreviation of ampere and intensity of current. Unit used to measure electric current.
Ampere-Hour: One ampere of current delivered per hour.
Anodizing: Electrochemical coating for aluminium. Hard, durable, and attractive. The anodised parts have a high resistance to corrosion.
Atex: European security classification. ATEX products are classified for use in or around the explosive atmospheres.
Bulb Two Pins: The bulb has two contact pins plugged to an outlet allowing easy replacement.
Bulb “Mottled”: The stippling prevents infiltration of stray light and gives the beam the ability to shine through the mist, fog and thick smoke. This is why Firefighters rely heavily on the Survivor.
Maximum Beam Intensity: Also called maximum beam intensity. Measure the light in a focused beam. An indication of the maximum intensity of the lamp torch. The “hot spot” is equivalent in brightness the number of “candle” needed to produce the same lighting.
Model of Beam: When they choose a flashlight, users should not forget how it will be used. According to Foodezine, the flashlights have a different balance of characteristics in terms of width and reach beam. Some models of beam Streamlight:
- Tradition: General use, versatile, offering an optimal balance of a beam at long range and a light wide periphery
- High-performance, high lumen (HPL): Throws the light on a long distance and adapts well to applications in the direction of the shooting with a higher intensity
- High lumen (HL): The larger models of beams, perfect for maximum illumination in the smaller areas which require a lot of light, but not an exceptional range
Candela: Also called “candle”. Unit of luminous intensity. A candela is equivalent to 12.57 lumens. At one point, it was equivalent to light a “standard candle”.
Candela: Where reference is made to flashlights, the candela is usually identical to the maximum intensity of the beam.
This: Flashlights CE with this symbol meet the guidelines of the European Community, and thus can be sold in Europe.
Filament Double: Option on the Vulcan and the LiteBox, this bulb contains two filaments that allow the user to instantly switch to the second filament when emergency lighting is required.
Ex: EX means conformity to European standards for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.
Halogen Bulbs And Xenon: Flashlights using these gas-filled bulbs are recognized by their extreme brightness and white light. These bulbs are generally more efficient than standard bulbs and can last longer.
Haz – Lo: Range Streamlight flashlights security adapted for use in Division 1 environments. Different standards and different tests of protection to the NRTL (Nationally Recognized Testing Labs) are used for classification in Division 1. Any flashlight that will be used in a hazardous environment or a confined space must be properly tested to meet or exceed all safety standards for these environments.
High Temperature Lens: Usually in borosilicate glass with low thermal expansion characteristics. Easy to clean, resistant to scratches and has good resistance to shocks when properly mounted.
Integrated Security: Unable to ignite a flammable atmosphere in both normal and “defective” operating conditions
Lead: Used in the Vulcan and the LiteBox rechargeable battery chemistry. Unlike the automotive batteries, batteries for Streamlight lead spread not acid. Streamlight batteries are sealed and contain no liquid in the free State.
Del: LED (light-emitting Diode) bulb “solid-state” high intensity that last up to 100,000 hours. Able to last for very long with very little energy. Available in several colors including UV.
Lithium: Disposable batteries using lithium chemistry are gaining popularity because of their lightness, their high energy density and their shelf life of ten years. Batteries rechargeable lithium-ion, such as those used in the Strion, combine high capacity with small size and lightness.
Lumen: Unit of brightness. Serving as a reference for flashlights, it refers to the total amount of light emitted by the naked light, the LED or the flashlight. Because this measure does not consider the effectiveness of concentration of the reflector, it does not indicate the State of brightness of the focused beam. A projectrice lamp with an appearance scheme very much low can have the same ranking of lumen than a set of intensely bright narrow beam projector and highly focused. Lumen ratings cannot be converted in maximum beam intensity.
Aluminum Factory: Components of lamps torches made from this material are lightweight, durable and can be held to close for superior performance in sets of precision manufacturing tolerances.
Nickel Cadmium: (abbreviated NiCd) The most common rechargeable battery used in the Streamlight products. It is the most robust plug-in technology and provides performance / highest cost report. It must be recycled at the end of their life cycle.
Nickel-Metal Hydride: (abbreviation NiMH) Rechargeable battery for the Stinger and of Streamlight SL series option. It offers the same features of performance than the NiCd batteries, better respecting the environment. Is also consistent with the recommendations of the European Union WEEE.
Non-Incendiaire: Unable to ignite a flammable atmosphere in normal operating conditions.
Pours: Will not conduct electricity. Flashlights made with materials of non-conductive housings protect against electric shock in case the torch would affect an electric source.
O-Ring: Used as a gasket to seal the lamp case torch against dust and moisture.
Polycarbonate: Virtually unbreakable, clear, robust, resilient polymer used to make the lens in most lamps flashlights Streamlight. Often coated with a hard coating for abrasion resistance.
Polymer: Material with a long molecular chain structure. Lightweight, highly durable, resistant to shocks, driver and moldable in colors.
Prefocalisee Lamp Module: Lamp and reflector provided and replaced as a whole. Permanently adjusted at the factory for optimum focus.
Reflector: Surrounds the lamp, runs and focus the rays of light in one direction. Streamlight reflectors are designed by computer for optimal performance.
Ten – Tap Programming®: Allows the user to choose among three lighting modes (for example: Fort/strobe/low;) Strong only; Weak – strong) according to the type of lamp. This function is available on some flashlights Streamlight.
Ul: Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. is a third-party testing agency that approves products to comply with the electrical specifications and for use in specified dangerous areas.
Volt: Unit of electric potential. The potential difference between two points in the electrical system is called the tension between these points.
Watt: Power unit. Electric power can be calculated by multiplying the voltage and current.
