150-watt Built-In-Ballast™ bulb requires no heavy external transformer. As a result, the bulk and weight are gone, yet all the power of a transformer-based unit remains.
Lightweight and ergonomically designed — The hand-held BIB-150P lamp has a total weight of only 3¼ pounds (1.5kg). The lamp head, including the heat guard/stand, measures 9 5/8 inches (24cm) long. The power cord exits directly from the bottom of the contoured pistol-grip handle, resulting in better balance.
Unsurpassed safety and convenience — The vinyl-coated, stainless-steel, wraparound heat guard/stand protects against burns and acts as a lamp stand. Its special insulators absorb mechanical shock to extend bulb and filter life. The 3-wire power cord, made of heat-resistant material, reduces the risk of shock hazard. Because there’s no bulky transformer to drag around and it has an 8-foot (2.5m) power cord, you can use it anywhere. If an even longer reach is desired, order the Spectroline model BIB-150PX with a 20-foot (6m) power cord or the model BIB-150PR with a 30-foot (9m) retractable cord on a “flying” reel.
Choice of bulbs provides unbeatable versatility.
The BIB-150P can be supplied with a concentrated spot bulb for an
intense UV beam. This bulb produces a nominal steady-state 365nm
intensity of 4,500 µW/cm2 at 15 inches (38cm). If wider-area
coverage is desired, specify the broad-beam bulb. This bulb produces
an intensity of 3,000 µW/cm2 at 15 inches. Both bulbs have
an average rated life of 5,000 hours and are specially designed
to withstand rough use.
Special Bulb-Saver™ extends bulb life. To greatly reduce replacement costs due to broken bulbs, we include our unique Bulb-Saver at no extra charge. It minimizes bulb movement during handling, reducing the risk of breakage.
Flexible, silicone rubber filter holder is easily removable without tools for bulb or filter replacement.
FREE UV-absorbing glasses included with every lamp.
