Tektite Releases New Pocket-Size LED Emergency Strobe

Tektite Industries continues to augment their line of market-leading strobes and signaling devices with the unveiling of the Tektite M1 Strobe.

The Tektite M1 Strobe is a high-intensity, pocket-size LED emergency strobe beacon. It takes the best aspects of the Tektite Mark-Lite series and the Tektite M3 Strobe to create a compact, high-intensity LED strobe that is perfect for emergency location marking use. The M1 Strobe is incredibly compact and reliable; boasting a lamp life of 10,000+ hours and using a simple twist-on, rotary switch for activation. This double O-ring sealed, waterproof strobe has a depth rating of 1,000 feet (333 m) and will run for over 50+ hours on a fresh set of two 3.6v 1/2AA-size Lithium batteries. Optional lens colors are available and a bungee wrist lanyard is included.

The new Tektite M1 Strobe is available now direct from Tektite. For more information on the M1 Strobe, other new products from Tektite, or to place an order, visit our website www.TEK-TITE.com.

 

 

Tektite Unveils Improved, LED Version of the Strobe 200

The Tektite Strobe 200 was already considered one of the best signaling devices on the market. Now, Tektite Industries is proud to announce the upgrading of their most popular selling strobe, the Tektite Strobe 200, to a high-intensity LED strobe.

The Tektite Strobe 200 now features a high-intensity 7-Watt LED module which boasts improved flash rate, lamp life, and durability compared to the previous Xenon version. Since it utilizes an LED strobe module, there are no fragile glass tubes to break such as in Xenon strobes, improving durability. The initial flash rate, with fresh batteries, has been improved from 50-60 flashes per minute to 120 flashes per minute (2 Hz). The lamp life has also increased from 1,000,000 flashes to 36,000,000+ flashes (10,000+ hours). Optional lens colors will still be available for the new Strobe 200. All of these upgrades have also been made to the Tektite IR Strobe 200. The new LED modules are backward compatible with previous Strobe 200 models.
 

 

Tektite Announces Sweeping Upgrades to ELZ Strobes and Kits

Tektite Industries is proud to announce sweeping LED upgrades to many of their flight ops products including the ELZ Strobe, ELZ Kit, Mini ELZ Kit, and their infrared equivalents.

The Tektite ELZ Strobe now features a high-intensity, multifunction 10-Watt LED strobe modules which help provide 5 times the battery life, 10 times the lamp life, better visibility range, improved flash rate, and twice the ruggedness of the older Xenon version.  Previously based on the Tektite Strobe 200, the ELZ Strobe is now based on the popular Strobe 3500 (3 C-cell Alkaline) to power the new LED strobe module. The multifunction LED strobe module can be used in flashing mode or steady mode and mode switching is done via a simple, reliable rotary switch so there is no fumbling around in the dark. This completely watertight strobe still utilizes the same weighted, spring-loaded base that keeps the strobe upright on all surfaces even in heavy winds and rotor wash. Optional lens colors are still available. All of these same upgrades have also been made to the Tektite IR ELZ Strobe.

The Tektite ELZ Kit includes these new strobes and they are now packed in a rugged Nanuk 945 equip case. The ELZ Strobe still folds flat for easy storage. These same changes have also been made to the Tektite IR ELZ Kit.

The Tektite Mini ELZ Kit has also been upgraded to LED which boasts improved flash rate, lamp life, and durability compared to the previous Xenon version. The strobes in these kits now feature high-intensity, 7-Watt LED strobe modules which are far more durable than their Xenon predecessors since there are no fragile glass strobe tubes in these modules. The Mini ELZ Kit still features the same rugged backcountry case, ground stakes, and the availability of optional lens colors. All of these same upgrades have also been made to the Tektite IR Mini ELZ Kit.

Tektite Unveils Their First Ever Multifunction, High-Intensity LED

Multifunction, high-intensity LED strobes with improved brightness, battery life, and durability

    TRENTON, N.J. – (December 4, 2013) - Tektite Industries, Inc., a worldwide leader in LED flashlights, strobes, and other portable lighting technologies, is proud to announce their first ever multifunction, high-intensity, all-improved LED strobes: the Tektite® Strobe 3500 XL Expedition, Tektite® Strobe 3500, Tektite® M3 Strobe, and the TEKNA® Lite 6 Strobe.

All of Tektite's new high-intensity LED strobes now feature dual-function modules. These modules have two modes: flashing and steady. Use flashing mode just like a normal strobe. Use the steady mode for area lighting, as a backup light, or as a marker light.

These strobes feature blistering, high-intensity LED strobe modules that are even brighter than Tektite’s already market-leading Xenon strobes. The lamp life of each of these modules is 10,000+ hours so they will seldom, if ever, need replacement. Even the durability, already a hallmark of Tektite products, of these strobes has been improved since these LED strobes do not utilize the fragile glass strobe tubes used in Xenon strobes.

The Tektite® Strobe 3500 XL Expedition (http://www.tek-tite.com/proddetail.php?prod=Strobe_3500_XL_Expedition) is the brightest, most rugged, and shock resistant strobe we or anyone else makes. This multifunction, high-intensity LED strobe is visible for several miles (with a clear lens, conditions permitting) and flashes at initial flash rate of 120 flashes per minute (2 Hz) which is twice as many flashes per minute than our previous Xenon strobes. Along with our new multifunction LED module, this strobe features a battery housing that is computer machined from a solid bar of aircraft aluminum strong enough to be run over by a tank. Waterproof with double O-ring seals, the Strobe 3500 XL Expedition is dive rated to 2,500 feet (770 m) and will run for 100 hours in flashing mode (or 20 hours in steady mode) on a fresh set of three C-cell Alkaline batteries. The Strobe 3500 XL Expedition is also offered in an infrared (IR) version for government and military use (http://www.tek-tite.com/proddetail.php?prod=INFRARED_STROBE_3500_XL_EXPEDITION).

The Tektite® Strobe 3500 (http://www.tek-tite.com/proddetail.php?prod=STROBE_3500) is the polymer version of the Strobe 3500 XL Expedition and is crafted from the same durable ABS and LEXAN® as many of Tektite’s other military-tough products. This multifunction, high-intensity LED strobe is visible for several miles (with a clear lens, conditions permitting) and flashes at initial flash rate of 120 flashes per minute (2 Hz) which is twice as many flashes per minute than our previous Xenon strobes. Waterproof with double O-ring seals, the Strobe 3500 is dive rated to 500 feet (150 m) and will run for 100 hours in flashing mode (or 20 hours in steady mode) on a fresh set of three C-cell alkaline batteries. The Strobe 3500 is also offered in an infrared (IR) version for government and military use (http://www.tek-tite.com/proddetail.php?prod=INFRARED_STROBE_3500).

The Tektite® M3 Strobe (http://www.tek-tite.com/proddetail.php?prod=M3_Strobe) takes the best aspects of our Mark III series and Strobe 3500 to create a thin, rugged, powerful LED strobe that produces comparable light output to large Xenon strobes but without the fragile glass tubes. The M3 Strobe features a high-intensity, multifunction LED strobe module that is far brighter than the Tektite Mark III Strobe and about as bright as Tektite’s market-leading Xenon strobes but in a slim, three AA-cell Alkaline size body. This strobe is crafted from the same durable ABS and LEXAN® as many of Tektite’s other military-tough products and is visible for 1+ mile (with a clear lens, conditions permitting) above water.  Waterproof with double O-ring seals, the M3 Strobe is dive rated to 1,000 feet (333 m) and will run for 100+ hours in flashing mode (or 20 hours in steady mode) on a fresh set of three AA-cell alkaline batteries.

The TEKNA® Lite 6 Strobe (http://www.tek-tite.com/proddetail.php?prod=TEKNA_Lite_6_Strobe) is a rugged, multifunction, high-intensity LED strobe that is light enough to float! The Lite 6 Strobe, weighing only 0.5 lbs. (0.31 kg), is crafted from the same durable ABS and LEXAN® as many of Tektite’s military-tough products and sports our new multifunction, high-intensity LED strobe module. This strobe is visible for several miles (with a clear lens, conditions permitting) and flashes at initial flash rate of 120 flashes per minute (2 Hz) which is twice as many flashes per minute than our previous Xenon strobes. Waterproof with double O-ring seals, the Lite 6 Strobe is dive rated to 500 feet (150 m) and will run for 20+ hours in flashing mode (or 3 hours in steady mode) on a fresh set of two CR123A Lithium batteries.

Tektite strobes probe the Aegean Sea in "Titanic's Tragic Sister", on The History Channel

The Britannic is the larger sister of the ill-fated Titanic. Converted to a hospital ship for WWI, on November 21, 1916, Britannic was steaming through the Kea Channel in the Aegean when an explosion ripped through the ship causing the world's largest ocean liner to sink in 400 feet of water. Famous New Jersey wreck divers John Chatterton and Richie Kohler (hosts of "Deep Sea Detectives", Shadow Divers, U-869) lead an expedition to unravel this mystery of the Britannic's final hour. Tektite Strobes can be seen in several shots on the mooring buoy down-line at the decompression stops. Our strobes were also "off screen", but essential, during the tense scene in boiler room #6. While 100 feet inside the wreck, and 400' down, the penetration dive had to be aborted when the visibilty dropped to zero during the "silt out". Our strobes safely guided the divers back to the exit.

 

Tektite Torcher Test

Tektite LED flashlights lined up under the tank tread for the Torcher Test

Tektite LED flashlights being run over by the Tank


On February 28, Tektite's design and engineering team completed another round of Torcher Testing. See the video below! The goal of this Torcher Test was to subject our flashlights to the extreme weight and pressure of a tank.

During the testing we drove a retired 54-Ton British Tank over several of our flashlights. This unique product and demanding test helps demonstrate the extreme ruggedness and durability of our flashlights.

After the test, we inspected the flashlights and came to the following conclusions:

- The Excursion LS4 once again demonstrated that it deserves the title of Most Durable Flashlight in the World. It survived the test with only minor scuffs and body scratches.

- The Trek 2/4 demonstrated its extreme resilience to the crushing forces exerted by the 54-Ton Tank. While its ABS body was slightly deformed, it still worked after this test.

-Only one flashlight didn't survive the test; It was still shining, but could not be turned off. However, this prototype model has been redesigned and we fully expect it to pass this Torcher Test next time. That's what testing is for!

Tektite would like to thank Ricky's Army & Navy in Delran, NJ, for all their assistance.

Tektite shines in Iditarod trail sled dog race

Richard Hum of Talkeetna, Alaska,used Tektite's LPR-113 LED replacement bulb as he ran in the famous Iditarod trail sled dog race on March 4, 2006. Richard installed the LPR-113 bulb in his musher's headlamp to ensure better visibility at night, when most of the running is actually done.

Iditarod, dubbed "The Last Great Race", is a gruelling 1,150-mile trail race across some of the most beautiful and at the same time unforgiving terrain in Alaska. This will be yet another test for Tektite's rugged products as Richard embarks on his journey in sub-zero temperatures and blinding winds.

New 2-Watt LED Dive Lantern from Tektite

Tektite's new 2-Watt Trek 400 LS is the first BC pocket-sized dive lantern to use the super-bright Luxeon Star LED. This comfortable to use and carry LED dive light is a perfect entry-level night diving light or a great backup light for serious night divers. Powered by 4C-cell batteries, the Trek 400 LS delivers 8+ hours of solar-quality (5,500K) white light that helps restore sunlight color at depth. Its smooth reflector delivers a narrow, bright beam, while double O-ring seals give this light an underwater depth rating of 300 feet (100 m).  Additional features include a lock-off switch, lifetime warranty and an adjustable, cushioned wrist lanyard.

 

 

Tektite Lights Make World Record Dive

Two Trek 4 dive lights joined Mark Ellyatt on his world record deep dive to 1,032 feet (313 m) on December 18, 2003.

Mark carried four dive lights with him during his record setting dive; in addition to the two Trek 4s, he also carried two 4C-cell lights from another manufacturer. Mark said that both Trek 4s performed great,despite the fact that only one of his other two lights worked once he made it to 313 m (the other did survive, but it was severely damaged). Mark attached the Trek 4s to his hood so that we could read his gauges and the depth markings on his descent line.

Mark was quite impressed that he was able to find dive lights capable of withstanding the extreme pressure of a 1,000 foot dive. "Once 180m depth came, it brought with it the darkness. Underwater lighting has
