MB 3.0 Series products, Zeus, Hermes, Selene and Atlas are lamps with a powerful and wide UV-A output varying from 4 500 to 9 000 μW/cm2. Zeus and Selene offer a strong white light for after inspection as well. Hermes and Atlas do not have a white light for organizations that do not allow white light during inspections.
MB 3.0 Selene: 9 000 μW/cm2 with strong white light
MB 3.0 Atlas: 9 000 μW/cm2 without white light
MB 3.0 Zeus: 4 500 μW/cm2 with strong white light
MB 3.0 Hermes: 4 500 μW/cm2 without white light
High quality UV-A LEDs, with white light block filters that do not suffer from solarization, provide a large coverage, depending on which model, in excess of 8-9 inches / 20-22 cm, and weigh less than many comparable products. The mains operated model weighs just 0.65 kg (1.4 lbs) and the battery-operated model weighs just 0.68 kg (1.5 lbs). They are widely used for field inspections or on an MPI bench. All MB 3.0 Series models have an ingress protection certification of IP68. All four models above have a Risk Class 3 classification as per IEC 62471.
Please be advised that generic UV lights that have several UV LEDs mounted within a few millimeters from one another in a small housing create an excessive amount of heat which significantly shortens the life of the LEDs. Due to the small housing and large number of LEDs you cannot observe the LEDs failing as there is still some light coming out, albeit diminishing rapidly, unable to verify compliance with ASTM E3022 and consequently NADCAP checklists. ASTM E3022 requires that critical components such as failed LEDs be replaced before use.
Members of the US military should ask for MB 3.0 Atlas (PN for AC powered: L125, PN for Battery: L124). MB 3.0 Atlas battery with Athena spray can holder attached carries PN: L126.
The MB 3.0 Zeus UV handheld is also part of the INSPECTOR KIT (PN: K001) that also includes UVG5 2.0 Midlight UV headlight, UVG3 2.0 Midlight UV flashlight and Apollo 2.0 UV and white light meter. US Airforce should ask for K002.
