COAST Introduces new LED Lenser Advanced Focus System

October 21, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
COAST, co-producer of LED Lenser lighting products, introduces the new LED Lenser High Performance Line of handheld professional use LED lights and headlamps, featuring the new LED Lenser Advanced Focus System.

The new and improved Advanced Focus System provides a seamless transition from a focused spot to a broad flood beam, eliminating the dark and hot spots typically associated with focusing flashlights. The Advanced Focus System flood beam provides a broad circular beam of light that illuminates large, close-up areas and eliminates dark spots in the center. The spot beam provides a sharply focused beam of light that illuminates more distant areas, with a range of up to 1750 feet.

"This new line of LED Lenser lights allows COAST to continue offering the very best in lighting technology our customers have come to expect," said David Brands, president of COAST. "The Advanced Focus System is a major step forward in flashlight focusing technology. No longer will users see dark or hot spots in their flashlight beam.

The LED Lenser Advanced Focus System is the latest technology innovation to be added to LED Lenser flashlights. Many hand-held models feature a Speed Focus System for moving from a spot to a flood beam. A simple push forward or pull back with the thumb on the head of the light adjusts the beam to suit the situation. On many models, including the P5 (8405) and P7 (8407), the Speed Focus can be operated with one hand. The LED Lenser Quick Cycle switch, another feature used in several models, allows users three light output levels maximum, high and low.
