EOD Tactical Light
The EOD Tactical Light gives you both hands free and the ability to adjust lighting for the conditions you're in whether doing a RECON or an actual RSP.
The Petzl STRIX VL is the light that you can mount directly on your ballistic helmet, hang on your vest or use the elastic band on your head or around your neck.
The STRIX VL comes with an adjustable head band but can be removed and held on your existing ballistic helmet rail system or with the helmet adapter sold seperately. The light can also be added to your MOLLE gear without any adapter!
Continuous lighting strength throughout the life of the battery giving you maximum effectiveness and time during your operation. The light runs on one AA batter, alkeline or lithium!
4 Lighting Modes for Maximum Capability! Noise and Light Discipline in Mind!
Petzl used their brains in designing this light.
The first light to come on is the Red Light so you don't have to worry about light discipline! All functions of this light are silent. No clicking noises to turn this one on and off. Pull the spring loaded knob out and give it one twist to go to Red. To turn the light off, turn the knob counter-clockwise without extending the on-off knob. Again, this will prevent any mishaps with light discipline.
The 2nd lighting mode is a smaller dim white light, 0.4 Lumens at 65 Hours, ideal for reading maps or an upclose recon on your target item up to 3 meters away. Pull the on-off knob and give two twists and push the on-off bottom back to lock it in place. You will When it's time for lights out, just give the knob a counter-clockwise twist.
Third mode moves to the bigger white light which is ideal for lighting up larger items and your path 20 meters ahead. 15 Lumens for 20 Hours. Again, extend the knob and give it 3 twists running by the red and low level white light. Set the on-off knob and you're good to go. No need to extend the on-off knob to turn the light off. Just a quick counter-clockwise twist.
The fourth mode gives you maximum white light 40 meters ahead with 4 twists. 40 Lumens at 4 hours and 30 minutes. Light the way for you, your team and your vehicle!
Crush Proof and Water Proof!
The light is crush proof to 80kg or about 172lbs and is drop tested from 2 meters! The light is also water proof to 1 meter for 30 minutes.
