New Standard Miniature Light Trap With CO2

This trap (Model 1012.CO2) combines the proven performance of the New Standard Miniature Incandescent Light Trap with a small precision pneumatic valve controlled by the trap’s internal photoswitch that turns on and off the release of CO2 with the light level.

Photocell-Controlled CO2 Release

Photocell-Controlled CO2 Release

A small precision pneumatic valve is controlled by the trap’s internal photoswitch and turns on and off the release of CO2 with light level. The Model 1012.CO2 trap comes supplied with an adjustable regulator, all lines and connectors, and two sizes of in-line restriction orifices that permit you to adjust the flow rate from 100 to 500 ml per minute. All you need to supply is a beverage industry COtank.

Maximal Light Output

The Model 1012 trap emits 75% more light than any other incandescent trap on the market. New ABS formed rainshield and clear acrylic body reflects and transmits light downward like a street light as well as straight out. The new PhotoSwitch, unlike any on the market today delivers 100% of battery voltage to the light and motor. This means the incandescent bulb delivers a bright and white light as designed, not a yellowish light with most energy lost as heat (infrared).

Maximal Air Flow

The new PhotoSwitch delivering 100% of battery voltage means motor RPM’s are ca. 20% greater than other miniature light traps using PhotoSwitches. Coupled with our low-silhouette grill, air flow in substantially superior to other models.

Easy To Use

The trap can be programmed into the various modes without a magnifying glass or tweezers… and, no jumpers to lose. The motor can be replaced with only a screwdriver.

Internal Programmable PhotoSwitch

The internal programmable photoswitch can control any combination of motor and/or light on and off at dusk and dawn.
