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 loose. The motor can be replaced with only a screwdriver.
