Advances in laser technology lowers procurement costs; multiplies field unit deployments; retires less effective LED forensic lamp sources; increases site exploitation opportunities; redefines expeditionary & crime scene “portability".
Laser Spectral Brightness Superior to LED
Green (532nm wavelength) and Blue (450nm wavelength) lasers have been repeatedly tested and proven to be superior to LED light sources as a tool for the detection & imaging of biological & print evidence in the field and in the lab. Superior spectral brightness provides the operator with a powerful and narrow wavelength band to excite or fluoresce biological evidence for further investigation and photography. Special operator glasses and/or cameras then filter & translate this narrow wavelength light source into high contrast images – the evidence more easily developed and studied than with a less effective LED lamp based source.
Man-Portable, Adaptable, Affordable
Z-Bolt® C-PRINT Lasers are similar in dimensions to a small-size flashlight, a feather-light 10 ounces. Easy to transport, carry, and operate, the C-PRINT’s capabilities compare favorably to the Coherent TracER at 45 pounds. The TracER is marketed as delivering “ultimate portability”, but is too heavy to effectively accompany LE, SOF, EOD, or CID teams into the field. Transported in a large hard case, the TracER is too unwieldy for rotary wing or vehicle transport. The Z-Bolt® C-PRINT is truly “man-portable”. Allowing on site, on the battlefield forensic detection & quality imaging following combat ops; at crime scenes; at expeditionary forensic labs. The C-PRINT features digital variable power; beam-spot size control; an internal variable sealed zoom lens system; battery “Low-Power” indicator; and easy access power interlock.
Use the Z-Bolt® C-PRINT for Field Work. . .
AND as an Effective & Inexpensive Lab Laser Replacement
The C-PRINT is revolutionary in many ways. The C-PRINT employs an extremely bright 400mW green laser diode for superior lab and field fluorescence of prints and biologicals. Features include digital variable power; beam-spot size control; an internal variable sealed zoom lens system; battery "Low-Power" indicator; and easy access power interlock. The pristine flat-top green beam brightness & surface diameter can de “dialed” to match the individual requirements or preferences of the crime lab or bomb technician, or to enhance and augment the capabilities of the specific type of camera imaging system used. "Dial" the C-PRINT to the particular lighting conditions and environment in the lab or field.
C-PRINT Pricing is Affordable
C-PRINT pricing is affordable - allowing for wider field deployments; expanded theater coverage; increased collection opportunities. Approx. $8,500 ~ $11,500 vs. Coherent TracER at $48,000. LED forensic lights are currently the only reasonably priced alternative to Coherent lasers, but lack the intense spectral brightness required for effective evidence imaging. Z-Bolt® Forensic Lasers are designed to supplement OR replace expensive legacy laser systems, sustain budget viability, & deliver increased field portability & effectiveness. The C-PRINT Green ships with C-PRINT Blue LED; orange & red filter safety glasses; rechargeable battery kit; laser optics cleaning kit – all in a hard case for stowage & transport. Also kitted with optional C-PRINT Blue LED light . . .
Our new C-PRINT Blue LED is producing 10W @ 450nm = +/- 1nm. The power spec and optical design produces a nice, clean TOP-HAT profile. This performance is sufficient to match blue laser quality luminance in some lab or field use cases. The unit includes a magnetic charging port; variable optical power output; low battery power LED indicator. 450nm HB LEDs are far more optimized vs.the past. Industry is now making LED chips as efficient and bright as lasers. HB = High Brightness. In the past, filters were used to scrub out longer wavelengths which the LEDs produced. Companies would use HB Cool White LEDs, then filter out everything above 470nm We are utilizing a 455nm LED. This allows the C-PRINT Blue to achieve true blue light imaging that is portable, mobile, and extremely affordable.
