Advanced Specialty Lighting (ASL) was formed in July 2003 through the acquisition of the Entertainment and PCB lighting business formerly known as ORC and the Entertainment and Lithography Division of PerkinElmer, Inc. These businesses include short arc xenon lamps for cinema, industrial and PCB mercury xenon lamps. The lamps range in output from 150 to 10,000 watts. Lamps rated below 450 watts are used in technical applications such as microscopy, medical light sources (endoscopy) and graphic scanners. Higher wattage applications are for commercial film projection, slide projection, skytracker spotlights, follow spots, architectural spotlights and solar simulation.
ASL is a wholly owned subsidiary of Advanced Strobe Products, Inc. (ASP). ASP is a manufacturer of xenon flash lamps for stroboscopic applications like vehicular warning, photographic, medical, theatrical, aircraft, airport, laser, tower lighting and machine vision.
ASL employs the highest standards of quality and consistency. Corporate headquarters is located in Chicago, IL.
