While invented for fire and rescue applications (emergency scenes), portable Lentry® Lighting Systems are used in many industries to light dynamic sites, including crime scenes.
Lentry Lights have many features that make them a wise investment and an indispensable tool for crime scene investigation, including:
- Instant-on, turning night into day;
- Instant-off, meaning no cool-down time when done;
- One person deployment and take-down;
- Entire system retracts and breaks down to fit in the trunk (or any small compartment);
- Easy, intuitive operation;
- Self-contained (no cords to run or batteries to charge);
- Long run-times (compare specs); and
- Legs let you put the remote area light wherever needed (side of a hill, under a bridge, in the snow, tall grass, etc).
One Lentry Light can make the difference between a long, unsuccessful night and investigation success. It sets up in seconds. It lights the whole area. It turns night into day which reduces stress and fatigue for investigators and increases safety for all by helping everyone on site see and be seen.
Extra tall models are recommended for scene investigation, though any height and any single light head model will be a vast improvement over conventional remote lighting. Popular models for scene investigations include:
- Models 1SPECX or 1SPECX-C23: Includes a 1000W generator, single XT height LED, and model ending in "-C23" includes a case to store the LED light head.
- Models 2SPECX or 2SPECX-C23: Includes a 2200W generator, single XT height LED, and model ending in "-C23" includes a case to store the LED light head.
- Models 2TWSPX-C34 or 2TWSPX-C50: Includes a 2200W generator, 2-Headed LED on a single XT height pole, and a case. Model ending in "-C34" includes a case to store the 2-Headed LED light head, while model ending in "-C50" includes a case to store the 2-Headed LED and pole.
As seen in the pictures below from Meade County Emergency Management in South Dakota, one Lentry Light can take the place of multiple flashlights or work lights. They also replace large, tow-behind light towers, especially in the rough terrain where the tow-behind lights cannot reach. Pull it out of the trunk, place it wherever is best (no matter how much debris is on the ground), start it up and forget it--until you're done or the sun is up, whichever is first. When you’re done, back it goes into the trunk, on call for the next scene. Contact us for more information.
