2008 IACP New Product Round-up 5 (cont'd)
Streamlight® introduced infrared tactical light models and new versions of Super Tac™, TL-2® LED, TLR-1® and TLR- 2®. The new models include the handheld IR Super Tac and the IR TL-2 LED and the gun-mounted IR TLR-1 and IR TLR-2. All four lights are designed to provide public safety personnel with long-range infrared illumination without compromising night vision. The IR TLR-2 also comes equipped with an integrated infrared aiming laser.
Each of the new lights features a high-power, 850 nanometer infrared LED, with a 20,000-hour lifespan. The IR TLR-2 also includes an 850 nanometer laser for long-range targeting. All four lights feature Streamlight’s proprietary deep-dish parabolic reflector, which provides a concentrated beam with optimum peripheral illumination to aid in navigation.
Both the IR TLR-1 and IR TLR-2 have an ambidextrous momentary / steady on-off switch, and the IR TLR-2 also features a three-position mode selector switch with IR laser only, IR illuminator only or both modes settings. The IR TLR-1 and IR TLR-2 are easily mounted to firearms and detached with a one-handed snap-on-and-tighten interface. The IR TLR-1 provides up to 7.5 hours of continuous runtime, while the IR TLR-2 also features 7.5 hours of continuous runtime when using the IR Laser and IR Illuminator simultaneously, and 45+ hours of runtime in the IR laser-only mode.
The IR Super Tac is 6.62 inches long and weighs 7.1 ounces, while the IR-TL-2 LED measures 5.25 inches and weighs 4.7 ounces. The IR TLR-1 weighs 4.18 ounces, and the IR TLR-2 weighs 4.72 ounces. Both IR TLR models measure 3.26 inches in length. All four lights are powered by two 3-volt CR123A lithium batteries, which have a storage life of 10 years, and all are backed by Streamlight’s limited lifetime warranty.
The SureFire X400 is a rugged LED WeaponLight with a powerful, fully integrated red laser sight. Its versatile beam and highly visible laser make it ideal for both close- and longer-range applications. The X400’s solid-state LED, which has no filament to burn out or break from the effects of recoil, generates 110 lumens of blinding light and continues producing tactical-level light for 2.4 hours on a set of batteries.
The X400’s Total Internal Reflection (TIR) lens gathers virtually all of the LED’s light and forms a tightly focused beam that reaches into the darkness but has enough surround beam to accommodate a user’s peripheral vision. The X400’s laser sight is 635 nanometers with shorter wavelengths. The laser’s sighting adjustment uses Nylok® screws, which won’t loosen from the effects of recoil.
A tough, hard-anodized aerospace-grade aluminum body protects the X400’s electronics, and a tempered Pyrex® window covers its TIR lens and LED. O-ring seals and gaskets keep out dust, dirt, propellant residue and moisture. Ambidextrous switching makes it easy to operate X400 with either hand, and remote switching for many weapons is available. The X400 slides onto most handguns with universal standard accessory rails and fits many guns without rails via a SureFire rail adapter.
TASER® International Inc.
TASER International’s TASER® AXON™ is an on-officer tactical computing platform that initially combines audio and video recording capabilities to integrate with existing communications platforms. The technology allows officers to record audio and video of critical incidents from the visual perspective of the officer. The intent of the AXON is to be an information multiplier for the officer providing an unbiased view of situations the officer chooses to record.
The TASER Controlled Digital Power Magazine CDPM™ is an add-on accessory for the TASER X26E™ device. The CDPM has the same functions as the DPM™ (Digital Power Magazine). However, the CDPM features a safety lanyard designed to secure the device to an officer. If a prisoner or suspect attempts to take the TASER X26E device away and breaks the lanyard connection, the system is designed to instantly deactivate the X26E.
The TASER Shockwave™ is the first generation of the new TASER Remote Area Denial (TRAD) technology. With the push of a button at a stand-off distance of up to 100 meters, the Shockwave unit deploys multiple standard TASER cartridges that are oriented across an area arc. Full area coverage is provided to instantaneously incapacitate multiple people within that region.
TOMAR Electronics Inc.
TOMAR’s new 970L Scorpion™ lightbar maintains the structure of Tomar’s 930/950 series lightbars but with a low-profile look and optimized LED and optics design. Features of the Scorpion include extruded aluminum housing, cast aluminum end caps, and a replaceable, hermetically sealed optical Lexan light module. The 970L Scorpion includes scalable and interchangeable features such as 3 or 6 LED front and rear warning modules, 6 or 12 LED corner modules, and a choice of halogen or LED take-down and alley lights.
Other features include potted controller and waterproof wiring standard and fully programmable flash patterns via wires or 940L-DCP. An integrated 6- or 8-element traffic director is standard on all full-size bars, and there is an optional onboard traffic pre-emption emitter. The 970L Scorpion is available in lengths of 21, 26, 35, 44, 49, 53, 58 and 67 inches. STT lights are available on 49-inch and larger bars. ICC lights are available on all length bars.
Tomar’s RECT-13LS is an ultra mini, ultra high-intensity, LED warning light made of optical Lexan and hermetically sealed. At 3.3 inches wide by 1.1 inches high by .75 inches deep, the RECT-13LS also meets SAE J845, SAE J595 and CAL Title 13 specifications. The RECT-13LS’s compact size allows it to mount directly to the body, rearview mirror, grille or license plate. In addition, a complete line of brackets is available. Its operating temperature range is -55 deg C to +65 deg C.
Trijicon’s RX30 Reflex Sight is a non-magnified, self-luminous sight engineered to provide increased field-of-view capabilities for fast target acquisition. The larger objective of the new Trijicon RX30 Reflex allows the user to move the firearm freely and remain on target at multiple shooting angles when surveying an area.
The new RX30 Reflex sight features a 42mm clear aperture lens for a generous field-of-view. With no batteries to rely on, this dual-illuminated sight features both fluorescent fiber optics and a tritium lamp for a clearly defined aiming point in any light condition. The glow-in-the-dark tritium provides amber reticle illumination in dim light, while the fiber optic system automatically controls the brightness of the reticle in all other light conditions.
The RX30 Reflex measures 4.87 inches L x 2.07 inches W x 2.22 inches H and weighs 12.5 ounces. The Trijicon RX30 Reflex is cast of A356-T6 aluminum with hard coat anodizing, per MIL-A-8625. It is also tested per MIL-ST-810F. The Trijicon RX30 Reflex is compatible with all existing Trijicon Reflex Mounts (except the RX10) for use with a wide range of firearms.

TSI’s PORTACOUNT® PRO and PRO+ Respirator Fit Testers offer fast, simple, easy-to-use, stand-alone operation and are OSHA-compliant for all respirators. These respirator fit testers can quantitatively fit test all types of respirators—gas masks, SCBAs, respirators, even N95 disposable (filtering-facepiece) respirators.
The PORTACOUNT PRO and PRO+ fit testers eliminate the guesswork associated with tedious and error-prone qualitative fit test methods. The PORTACOUNT PRO fit testers measure fit while the user simultaneously performs a series of moving, breathing and talking exercises designed to simulate the same movements made in the field.
Both units are quick to set up and easy to operate because they do not require an external computer. The color touchscreen allows the user to control the test with a touch of a finger, pen or stylus. The FITPRO software program automatically leads the user through the fit test protocol step by step. Fit test results are stored in a database for easy report generation, retrieval and regulatory compliance.
