BIRNS Snooperette UV

The new BIRNS Snooperette-UV™ Ultra Violet (UV) is a powerful, cutting-edge lighting system for the commercial diving and ROV market that brings incredibly versatile new options to a wide range of Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI) and Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) projects.  With this unique BIRNS UV helmet light, divers can have both hands free while using a powerful UV light to help identify metal fissures and weak areas at depth, and as it’s rated to 3,400m, ROVs and other vehicles can shed UV light at depth for a variety of offshore inspection applications.

Whether used in ship inspection, or for myriad military and offshore oil and gas applications, this low voltage BIRNS UV light has brilliant LED illumination in conjunction with a UV lamp, so it operates safely both in and out of the water.  Plus, it’s a ballast-free system, with instant On/Off capabilities, making it extremely easy and convenient to use.  The BIRNS Snooperette-UV is highly versatile, compact (Ø76mm), and is perfect for divers, cameras and ROVs, with an intense light that provides a 40,000 hour lamp life.


Incredibly versatile and rugged, the BIRNS Snooperette-UV is rated to 3400M and provides powerful ultra violet illumination to identify structural damage, leaking, or cracks in underwater metal structures.


  • Brilliant 4500K illumination

  • 40,000 hour lamp life

  • Stays cool operating both in and out of water

  • Ø76mm, mounts seamlessly

  • Tailor it with options including 3 mounts

  • Operates well on AC or DC.

Equipment Needed:

  • Mount (not required for operation but is useful in some applications)

  • Power Cable Assembly (item CEF2S16-xxx, where “-xxx” is the length in feet.)

Power Cable Assembly:

Model CEF2S16-xxx (xxx=feet long); includes standard cable connector, stainless steel cable locking sleeve (63A-003) and heavy-duty Hubbell plug installed, on 16/2 Aquaprene SO cable.  Available in unbroken lengths up to 1,000 feet.  The cables are made to order, so specify any cable length and/or special configurations.  (Note: the plug is not included on lengths shorter than 20 feet.)


Due to electrical resistance inherent in any power cable, voltage line loss will occur over long cable lengths. This causes a marked decrease in light output in low-voltage lights.  The BIRNS VTX will automatically compensates for cable line loss over any length of any type of cable. The VTX also incorporates a ground-fault circuit interrupter and a dual-line circuit breaker for the ultimate in diver safety and product performance.
