Archon WY07 (WY07) specifications
|Body diameter||32.8 mm|
|Head diameter||55 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
This 299 g flashlight is not excessively heavy, but it is noticeably heavier than the average weight for handheld flashlights. The length of the WY07 flashlight can affect its portability. A shorter flashlight is generally easier to carry in a pocket, bag, or pouch, making it more convenient for everyday use or when you're on the go. Aluminium body of WY07 is known for its durability and strength. It offers excellent resistance to impacts, scratches, and corrosion, making it suitable for rugged outdoor use or in demanding environments.
The HAIII process produces a hard and wear-resistant surface on the aluminum, making it more resistant to scratches, abrasions, and impacts. This improves the overall durability of the flashlight body. The WY07 flashlight is available in black.
|Emitter||Cree XP-L LED|
|Color temperature||5000 K|
Cree LEDs are commonly used in a wide range of lighting applications. Their products are trusted by lighting professionals and have gained a strong reputation for quality and performance. The choice of color temperature depends on the specific lighting application and personal preferences. With the smooth reflector of the WY07, the beam tends to have a well-defined hotspot at the center, which provides a concentrated beam of light for long-range applications.
With 1000 lm, the WY07 flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. This higher output can be advantageous in various situations where you require enhanced visibility or need to illuminate larger areas. The WY07 flashlight with 40000 cd has an extended throw distance, allowing you to illuminate objects or areas at greater distances. This can be advantageous for outdoor activities, search and rescue operations, or scenarios where long-range visibility is required.
The throw is the calculated distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. The cd/lm factor (candela-to-lumen ratio) provides information about how concentrated or focused the light output of a light source is. A higher cd/lm ratio indicates that the light is more concentrated in a specific direction, while a lower ratio indicates a more diffused or spread-out light output.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. Strobe mode on WY07 flashlight produces a rapid, repeated flashing of light. It can be used for signaling purposes, self-defense, or attracting attention in emergency situations.
|Battery||1 x 26650 Li-Ion battery|
|Protection||depth 100 meters|
The WY07 flashlight utilizes 1 x 26650 Li-Ion battery as its power source. A protected battery is recommended as the light itself does not have low voltage protection (LVP). This flashlight doesn't have built-in temperature control. Flashlights without thermal protection may rely on other design elements for heat dissipation, such as heat sinks, fins, or body materials with good thermal conductivity.
|Package contents||2 x spare o-rings|
With an included battery you can immediately use the flashlight for your desired applications, saving time and allowing you to focus on your tasks or activities. The lanyard prevents accidental loss of the flashlight. Having spare O-rings allows you to replace them as needed, ensuring that the flashlight maintains its water-tight seal and remains protected from moisture or water ingress.
The performance of the Archon WY07 flashlight is measured according to the ANSI / NEMA FL1 Standard 30 seconds after switching the light on. The ANSI/NEMA FL1 2009 Standard is a set of flashlight performance guidelines.
