Product Testing: Summary

Submersion:
OmegaLite's were placed in a water pressure chamber. At pressures ranging from 180 to 210 PSI, the lenses cracked and the lights were internally flooded. The average pressure required to cause failure was 190 PSI (or an equivalent water depth of 450-ft.).
[Test conducted by Hauser Laboratories]


Note: After testing the lights were drained and then baked at 180 degrees for 36 hours to eliminate residual water. Afterwards, all lights were fully operational.

Storage Temperature:
OmegaLites were subjected to 10 deep temperature cycles in a thermal chamber. Each cycle consisted of a 5-hour dwell time at -50°F (-45°C) and at +140°F (+60°C) with a 2-hour transition time between each extreme. At the end of the test the lights were returned to room temperature and found to function perfectly.

Operational Temperature:

The same lights used in the storage temperature test were then cold soaked at -40°F (-40°C). After 3 hours all lights operated as designed. The lights were then heated to +135°F (+55°C) for 3 hours. All lights worked perfectly at the high temperature limit.

Chemical Resistance:
OmegaLite's were immersed for 3 days in 10 different chemical baths with the following results. (Note: Clear OmegaLite's (with Polycarbonate housings) were used in chemical baths 1 through 8. Yellow OmegaLite's (with Polycarbonate / ABS housings) were used in chemical baths 9, 10 and 11).
