The Maxima 3500 lamp’s micro discharge light (MDL) technology produces a steady-state intensity of 90,000 µW/cm² at 6 inches — up to 10 times the UV-A output of conventional HID curing lamps.
The Maxima 3500 lamp never gets hot. A special engineering polymer is used to make the lamp’s housing and the contoured handle. In addition, the handle is positioned away from the housing. This allows the entire lamp to remain cool during use to protect against accidental burn injury.
Integral bulb/reflector assembly
When replacing the bulb or filter in competitors’ lamps, exposed wiring can be a serious shock hazard due to residual current. To eliminate this risk, the Maxima 3500 lamp’s bulb/reflector assembly is designed as a single integral unit with “unexposed” circuitry. The unique design also makes bulb replacement easy (a new bulb/reflector unit can be installed with just a 1/4 turn). This helps maintain the original output level by providing the benefit of a new reflector whenever the bulb is replaced.
Unique diffusing filter available
Due to the ultra-high UV-A intensity of the Maxima 3500C lamp, UV fade of fluorescent penetrants will occur within the “hot spot” of the beam after prolonged exposure. The 2F350 diffusing filter, available as an accessory, will effectively diffuse the hot spot over a broader area and will significantly lengthen the time before UV fade occurs.
The bulb/reflector used in the Maxima 3500C is prefocused at the factory to ensure peak performance. This prevents the loss of output power that may occur due to incorrect, off-center bulb installation during bulb replacement.
Virtually no emission of hazardous UV-B
The Maxima 3500 emits virtually no emission of hazardous UV-B light, unlike competitive units which have substantial UV-B light emission.
The Maxima 3500 lamp’s solid-state ballast offers “instant on” capability. This eliminates waiting for warm up and saves valuable time. The ballast also protects against voltage fluctuations that can affect the lamp’s performance.
Super rugged and shock resistant
The lamp head and housing are constructed of a tough engineering polymer to protect against dents, cracks and scratches. To reduce shock hazard, the Maxima 3500C comes equipped with a 5-wire secondary cord and fully enclosed ballast.
Lightweight, portable, ergonomic design The lamp head measures only 19cm (7 1/2 inches) long and weighs just 1.1kg (2 1/2 lbs). The entire unit, including the ballast, weighs 6.1 lbs (2.8kg). The power cord exits directly from the bottom of the contoured pistol-grip handle, resulting in better balance. An on/off switch is conveniently positioned on the handle. The primary and secondary cords are both 8-feet (2.5m) long.
Flexible, silicone-rubber filter holder can be removed easily without tools for bulb/reflector or filter replacement.
FREE UV-absorbing glasses are included with every lamp.
