Wicked Hunting Lights™ is excited to announce the addition of the all new ScanPro iC 3-Color-In-1 full Intensity Control Night Hunting Headlamp featuring Patent Pending Center Axis Rotational 3-Color-In-1 Selectable Color LED module with LED Position Detent Lock, Zoom/Focus, and Full Intensity Control. The new ScanPro iC out shines the competition PERIOD! Unlike virtually all headlamps used for night hunting which are simply re-branded utility style headlamps, the Wicked Lights ScanPro IC Headlamp was purpose designed and built for night hunting. When we say "Night Hunting" were talking a headlamp specifically featured and designed to be used for scanning and locating hogs or predators or their eye reflection while they are responding to a call.
The ScanPro iC 3-Color-In-1's revolutionary patent pending design is the FIRST EVER purpose built night hunting headlamp to combine all THREE KEY DESIGN FEATURES required in a professional quality dedicated scanning light.
Key Design Feature 1:
The first key feature is the revolutionary, Patent Pending 3-Color-In-1 Center Axis Rotational Color LED module with LED Position Detent Lock. In laymen’s terms, you have the ability and convenience to select any of the 3 colors (for example Red, Green, or White) with just a slight twist of a knob and have the LED color of your choice lock in place on the center axis of the light body and in the center axis of the spherical lens.
Why is the “center axis” so important you may wonder? First, if the LED is not centered in the center axis of the spherical lens, then the light will not reach its maximum potential in light output (as measured in LUX). Depending on how far off axis the LED is, it will also create an artifact or distortion in the light beam which can affect your field of view. With a traditional, single colored led that is centered in the light, you easily achieve maximum brightness and clarity because one LED is used, and that LED is centered in the light. With a multi colored LED module, you will want each LED centered in your headlamp the moment you change to a different color LED. Currently LED color changes are accomplished in one of two ways; (1) physically remove the light bezel and change the LED module or (2) utilize a fixed circuit board with 4 (or more) different colored individual LED’s placed as close as possible on the board that some manufacturers use:
Above picture is from one of our actual fixed circuit multi-led prototypes. Note that the square LED's are crammed in the center with none of them being actually centered.
In our endeavor to bring a purpose built multi-color night hunting light to market, we explored and prototyped several multi-LED circuit board designs over the past several years. We developed a design that utilized the fixed circuit board with 4 (or more) different colored individual LED’s (as pictured above) and soundly rejected them. The failure of the four LED board design is that only one LED (at most) is actually on the center axis of the light and centered in the spherical lens. That means that only the one centered LED reaches it full brightness potential. In fact, many of the 4 LED board designs had all 4 LED’s off center access, so none of them could reach their full brightness potential. As alarming a that is, that is actually not even the major flaw with the 4 LED circuit design.
The major flaw is illuminated (no pun intended) when you change to a different color LED. When each individual LED is selected, the output (light beam) will have a different Point of Aim shift / trajectory and shine on a different spot because the LED’s are not centered in the light. Even at a range of less than 40 yards, for example, the beam offset can be as much as 10 feet! See the picture below for an illustration of this flaw.
Some manufacturers have adopted this 4-LED design. You really have to wonder.. Do these guys even night hunt? Our solution to this problem? The development of a 3-in-1 Center Axis Rotational Color LED module with LED Position Detent Lock.
After rejecting the fixed circuit 4 LED design, we started over and designed a rotation system from scratch, which sits on a center axis and rotates between various colors with the twist of a knob. Each LED is perfectly centered in the light when they are rotated into place. We called our new design the “3-in-1 Center Axis Rotational Color LED module with LED Position Detent Lock” and built it into a new model called the ScanPro iC 3-Color-In-1 Night Hunting Headlamp.
With the ScanPro iC 3-Color-In-1 Headlamp you can effortlessly select and change LED colors with a quick turn of the LED color control knob.
The new Center Axis rotary design allows for quick, easy, and instant color change while keeping each LED exactly centered in the headlamp, maximizing brightness and clarity for all three colors. No other headlamp on the market can do that. With the ScanPro iC 3-Color-In-1 Headlamp's effortless and quick LED color selection ability, you will gain the ability to tailor your LED color to the particular target species, terrain, or climatic conditions like many expert night hunters do.
Key Design Feature 2:
Full Intensity Control--Why do I need Intensity Control? Well, the full intensity control gives the hunter the ability to use less light. Less light = less animals spooked. The intensity control knob on the ScanPro iC 3-Color-In-1 Headlamp is designed to allow the hunter to set the intensity of the light BEFORE the light is turned on. This allows a hunter to condition the animal to the light by starting on a low power setting and gradually increasing the brightness of the headlamp until they have just enough light. Animals tend not to notice the subtle or gradual increase in brightness as much as suddenly being blasted by a bright beam of light. Also, in many situations the light does not need to be on full power to be able to identify the animal or see eye reflection. The Intensity Control rheostat knobs allow the hunter to increase the brightness until they have just enough light to make positive identification or until they feel they can see eye reflection good enough. This technique completely eliminates the worry of putting too much light on the animal because the hunter can stop incrasing the brightness of the light at any time. By using the Intensity Control feature to start on low, then conditioning the animal with a gradual increase in brightness, and stopping when there is just enough light; the hunter will spook less animals, period!
Key Design Feature 3:
Zoom Focus Rotating Bezel. The ability to adjust the light beam characteristic from “flood” to fully focused “zoom” is critically important. Typically the way the light is being used will dictate how the beam is adjusted. If the light is being used as a “scanning” light, it will be “flooded” which will widen the beam and lower the intensity of the light and aid in covering more area while looking for “eye shine”. Because the beam is “flooded” the benefit will be less potential to “burn the animals eyes” or shy the animal from the light. However, the disadvantage is the distance you will be able to see and positively identify the animal will be greatly reduced. Because of the adjustable zoom - focus you can experiment with beam size and intensity adjustment and find what works best for your particular situation and area. Additionally, many night hunters utilize two lights; one adjusted and set for scanning and looking for “eyes”. Once “eye’s“are detected the hunter will transition to their scope mounted light set to a higher intensity and “zoomed” for positive identification and shooting.
