Silicone elastomers fabricated using high vacuum degas process

 

 Water Sealing

>1m (>3ft)

 

 Machining

High precision components with <0.0005'' (0.01mm) tolerance

 

 Assembly

 

Heatsink bars pressed into main body under >500lb axial force to maximize thermal efficiency and structural integrity under stress

 

Each GatLight is carefully hand assembled from more than 82 components to achieve the superior performance levels.

 

 Heatsinking

Design provides maximized thermal efficiency by maximizing exposed surface area.

 

Copper core driver board to maximize thermal dissipation.

 

LED mounted to circuit board using high performance thermal dissipation pad commonly used in spaceflight applications.

 

Circuit board epoxy potted using aerospace grade thermally conductive epoxy to maximize thermal mass and conduction surface area.

 

 User Interface

Double ball bearing based mechanism to ensure tactile clicking operation.
