Uvitron PortaRay - High-Intensity Portable UV Flood Light Curing System

Product Summary

The PortaRay is a portable and versatile light curing system which can handle a variety of UV and visible light curing applications. With an effective curing area of up to 5" x 5", it is ideal for curing of small parts. Weighing-in at a mere 3 pounds, the system is also perfect for applications where frequent transportation is involved.

Included with the system is an enclosed headrest for holding the lamp head and providing light shielding during idle periods. An optional latched bottom accessories box is also available for storage and transportation of the headrest, UV glasses, power cord and adhesives. The lamp head can be used for handheld curing operations, or it can be mounted to a stand, conveyor, machine, fixture or robot. Due to its simple yet high-tech design, the PortaRay is extremely user-friendly and reliable, requiring virtually no learning curve or setup time.

PortaRay integrated curing lamp head

Fully Integrated Lamp Head

PortaRay in headrest

The hand-held 3 pound lamp head is fully self-contained. It contains an extra long life 400 or 600 Watt arc lamp, which emits evenly distributed UVA, UVB or visible light. The unit's arc lamp is powered by the state of the art UV Power-Plus Lamp Driver. Typical lamp life is 2000 hours. The lamp reflector is available as a parabolic 5" x 5" type for uniform, larger area curing, or optionally as a focused (circular) 5" x 3" type for higher intensity curing of smaller areas.

Lamp Power Regulation

The system’s switch mode power supply maintains constant lamp power regardless of variations in AC line input or lamp voltages. This regulation provides for repeatable curing times and longer lamp life.

Standby Mode

The unit features a standby mode rocker switch, which reduces lamp power by one half. This mode can be used to reduce heat and stray UV light output while the system is not in use.

Two AC Line Input Versions

The system is available in 90-132VAC, and 180-265VAC input voltage ranges that make it compatible for use worldwide.

Forced air cooling

An integrated cooling fan in the lamp head ensures cool operation and high system reliability.

Optional Lamp Spectrums

The PortaRay is available with UVA, UVB & visible spectrum lamps for the 400W & 600W systems, ensuring compatibility with adhesives and coatings from all manufacturers.

  Benchtop PortaRay
Additional Options

The versatility of the PortaRay extends beyond the lamp head itself - we offer a variety of specialty configurations and upgrades to the system to support the specific needs of your application.

Benchtop Mounting Option

The system can be mounted at a range of heights with a specialized configuration of the benchtop Flood Stand & Shield. Shown to the right is the stand-mounted PortaRay with the optional front wrap-around UV shield & rear UV shield.

Latching Accessories Box Configuration

The optional accessories storage compartment available with the PortaRay can be latched to the bottom of the lamp housing. This storage box can be used to house curing system accessories such as headrest, power cord, UV glasses, adhesive, etc.

PortaRay drawer headrest, mini curing chamber

Headrest with Drawer

The latched accessory box version of the PortaRay comes with a headrest that includes a drawer. This allows the headrest to function as a mini curing chamber for small parts, in addition to providing light shielding during idle periods.
