The SureFire ARC2-8C handheld spotlight/searchlight uses an ultra-high-output HID (high-intensity discharge) lamp and a deep, mirror-finish reflector that create a 4,500-lumen, 670,000 candela beam with a maximum effective reach in excess of 1,600 meters, yet provides a wide cone of peripheral light for situational awareness and enhanced patrol or search efficacy, making it perfect for military, law enforcement, border patrol, search-and-rescue, maritime, and other spotlight/searchlight applications. The filament-free HID lamp, virtually immune to failure from recoil, vibration, or impact, will last for thousands of hours.
The ARC2-8C can be powered in three different ways:
Due to advanced lithium-ion technology, the ARC2-8C’s light output remains constant until the battery is discharged; there is no gradual output decrease as battery charge decreases.
Power supply cables with remote switches are available. The ARC2-8C also features an integral rear-located momentary/constant-on pushbutton switch, which also serves as a backup switch should a remote cable switch assembly be damaged or otherwise fail.
The ARC2-8C accepts the same optional removable screw-in colored filters or optional semi-permanent swing-open colored filters that fit the SureFire HellFighter 5. The head of the ARC2-8C can also be easily removed from the battery/handle and attached to any watercraft or vehicle via an optional Universal Vehicle Mount. The head of the ARC2-8C, which is the ARC2, can be bought separately.
Built to withstand combat conditions, the ARC2-8C features sealed components constructed from high-strength aerospace aluminum finished in Mil-Spec Type III hard anodizing, and it is waterproof to 1 meter depth. The lamp assembly is protected by a 3mm coated tempered glass window, and the window itself can be protected from dust, mud, and heavy particle impact by optional removable screw-on colored filters, or optional semi-permanent swing-open colored filters. All ARC2-8C power cables now feature a high-strength polymer sheathing that makes them thin, light, flexible, yet extremely durable. Reflector, lamp, and rechargeable battery unit are field-replaceable. A tough polymer carrying case is available as an option.
