Polilight

Forensic light sources

Rofin Australia Pty Ltd has been producing Forensic Light Sources for well over 20 years, and now has thousands of users. Already over fifty countries have experienced the reality of using a Polilight® in their daily investigations. Following the reputation of reliability and performance associated with the name Polilight®, we are proud to offer the Polilight forensic light sources.
 

Polilight PL 550 XL

More power and Rupul filter for ninhydrin
This is the most powerful and advanced Polilieht raleased to date. Building on the successful PL500 series of forensic light sources, Rofin Australia has improved and added new features to make this undeniably the most desirable light source yet. Improvements has been made in all aspects of the alternate light source. A new user interface had been designed for intuitive and direct control of all the main functions using 3 dials.
 
A boost mode is available for short periods of time for when extra power is needed. The new variable speed fans are now computer controlled to rotate at optimum speeds. This means a more quiet and pleasant work environment for the forensic investigator. Three memory buttons are available to store your favourite settings and recall them automatically.
 
Direct control of all essential functions
 
A completely new user interface is introduced in the new PL550XL. All controls are easily accessible through 3 rotary dials. The main dial is used to select the wavelength which can be used to step through the bands or rotated to jump from one band to another.
Two smaller dials allow power and tuning setting to be selected. All three parameters can be read on large LED displays.
 
New wave lengths
 
The PL550XL comes standard with 13 bands including the new Rupul Band for the enhancement of Ruhemann's purple coloured nindydrin prints.
 
Product features:
 
• Higher output, a new boost mode for increased output
• Direct control of all essential functions
• Intelligent fan speed controller; cooler lamp and less noise
• Easily accessible power standby button and 3 user programmable pre-set buttons
• Built in mounting point for light guide holder
• Improved power supply for longer lamp life
• 13 band widths of light including a Rupul filter for ninhydrin developed prints

Polilight PL500SC

Forensic light source for use on the crime scene
The Polilight®PL500SC has been specifically designed to assist the forensic scientist to efficiently carry out an examination at the crime scene. Most features of the PL500 are included, however, the PL500SC enhances performance by incorporating a graphic display remote control, a 5 meter light guide and a simplified front control panel.
 
The remote control features a 128 x 68 element LED graphic display which gives excellent visual display whatever the environment; bright sunlight or dark nights. The housing of the remote can be fixed to the light guide or the user's belt. The six buttons allow full control of all functions of the light source, including on/off, filter selection, tuning, power output and shutter control. All functions selected are displayed on the remote while the operator is 5 meters away from the instrument.
 
The 5 meter long light guide provides a large reach on the crime scene without moving the light source around. This extended length together with the remote controller allows the operator to move freely around the crime scene without having to continuously revert to the front panel on the instrument to change settings.
 
Product features:
 
• Highly portable forensic light source
• Designed specifically for scene-of-crime work
• 5 meter (16 feet) light guide option
• Greater freedom, longer reach
• Remote control with LED graphic display
• Full control from up to 5 meters with graphical display
• Increased lamp life and reliability
• Front panel power switch
• Easier to turn on with smart shutdown

Polilight PL500

Universal forensic light source
The Polilight PL500 is a high-intensity light source based on a 500 Watt xenon arc lamp. This type of lamp delivers UV, visible, and infrared light. A special characteristic of the light output in the visible region is that the intensity of light is the same in the whole spectrum, just like sun light. This is in contrast with halogen lamps that deliver progressively more light, going from blue (low wavelength) to red (high wavelength).
 
Apart from white light, the Polilight PL500 has 12 selectable wavebands (from UV to red light). With filter tuning, any narrow band of light (with width of about 40 nm) in the visible spectrum can be selected.
 
The waveband is selected either by using the buttons on the front panel, or stepwise with the remote control (2 m-long cable). The filter selection and fine tuning are operated internally by stepper motors. The remote control is attached to the unit through a RS232 port.
 
This port can also be used for operating the PL500 from a computer (using optionally available software). Also available is a security code option that uses the filter selection buttons. This option will prevent unauthorized persons from switching on the instrument.
 
With the remote control or the buttons on the front panel, the light power can also be tuned (8 settings, from about 15 to 100% in equal increments).
 
Product features:
 
• Designed for easy portability
• Output of 12 band widths of light in UV and visible range using a single liquid light guide
• Optional IR output
• Intelligent unit power supply for all world locations
• Microprocessor-controlled push button filter selection
• Filter tuning and output power tuning
• Option for computer control of all operations
• Easy to use

Polilight PL400

Cost effective forensic light source
The Polilight®PL400 is a state-of-the-art forensic light source, designed for robust operation at the crime scene or within the laboratory. Its design is built upon the earlier highly successful Polilight® models PL6, PL10 and the top of the range PL500. The cost effective PL400 fills the gap between the top of the range PL500 series Polilights and the hand-held light sources.
 
The Polilight PL400 is available in three versions. The PL400 BlueScan emits bands of light in UV, violet and blue and is the recommended version to be used in environments where is searched for biological traces only.
 
The PL400 Forensic unit is fitted with additional filters which are commonly used on the crime scene.
 
The top of the PL400 range of light sources is the PL400 Forensic Plus. 19 bands of light can be selected, from UV up to 650 nm. This unit is use on the crime scene and in the laboratory.
 
 
Product features:
 
• Up to 20 filters in one filter wheel
• Internal microprocessor control, stepper motor filter wheel selection
• 400Watt metal halide lamp with a lamp life of more than 1,000 hours
• The Polilight® PL400 power supply can accept input voltages from any region of the world

Polilight Flare Plus2

Hand held battery operated forensic light source
The Polilight Flare Plus2 hand held light sources are battery operated and are available with band widths from UV up to infrared. The 7 LEDs in each light sources emit a high intensity light which can be adjusted in 5 steps.
 
The weight of the light source including the lithium ion battery is only 700 grams. It fits neatly into the hand and allows the thumb to control the multi-function Reed switch collar. The Reed switch controls on/off, intensity of the output in 5 steps, strobing and safety locking (aircraft mode).
 
The unit is coated with a fluoro-polymer material which makes it easy to clean. There are no mechanical parts like cooling fans in the light source and the units are watertight, white version can even be submersed up to 100 meter.
 
Polilight-Flare Plus2 outputs are as follows (bands to the half peak band width level):
UV 365 (360-385 nm)
Purple 415 (405-420 nm)
Blue 450 (435-465 nm)
Cyan 505 (485-515 nm)
Green 530 (510-545 nm)
Green/Yellow 545 (530-560 nm)
Red 620 (615-635 nm)
White (400-700 nm)
lnfra red 850 (835-865 nm)
