The COBRA Max and COBRA Slim offer this extreme intensity in a slim, compact and modular design ranging up to five meters. They are available in a wide range of wavelengths, from UV to visible to IR and their unique design allows for field adjustment of the lens to the ideal focusing distance for its respective application. Both products are offered with an optional strobing function and Ethernet control.COBRA Flex, the COBRA Series solution for restricted spaces also will be available in higher intensity levels. LOTUS™ Line LightLOTUS, a rugged, compact, and modular line light utilizes the latest in LED technology and optics to produce a bright and uniform light. The standard model has been upgraded to produce 50% greater intensity to a maximum of 188k Lux. To address applications requiring higher intensity, two new cooling options are now available.
