Blacklight: Altman 702 250W
Altman 702: Portable Blacklight
Altman's portable 702 blacklight is a high intensity discharge lighting device which produces a wash of near ultraviolet light for effect. UV light waves cause white reflective and specially treated surfaces to fluoresce while dark or absorptive surfaces become invisible.
The lamp, an ANSI code H37KB-250, contains an integral filter to eliminate any harmful far ultraviolet while maximizing the near ultraviolet effect.
The effective distance for the 702 is 10 - 20 feet from the subject.
Some common usages is to project a beam of ultraviolet from the wings or to hang from a light pipe with the optional "C" clamp.
The 702 is constructed of 18 gauge steel with integral ballast, reflector, line cord, switch, and carrying handle. The 702 is provided with a variable locking tilt head for focusing and the finish is a baked black enamel.
