Besides working on developments commissioned by customers, RP-Engineering GmbH also develops its own products for extreme areas. One of these is a diving lamp that has been specially developed for the high demands of technical divers. In addition to complete reliability, the focus here is on perfect luminosity. The SCALEO infinity diving lamp combines two lamps in one in compact form. In the center of the lamp, one single LED with a specially manufactured reflector produces a spot focused on five degrees. This can be used as a pointer to communicate underwater or illuminate objects in the distance. Around the reflector is a ring consisting of ten LEDs, which provide homogeneous light for recording video or illuminating large underwater caves. The lamp system is completely modular and can either be used with a small battery as a hand lamp or with a large battery tank linked to a cable for longer expeditions. The technical data for this unique product is as follows:


Spot: 5° / 1,100 lumens* / 42,000cd (lux@1 m)*

Wide angle: 120° / 6,000 lumens*

Dimensions: D=52mm x L=99 mm

Weight underwater: 133 g / above water: 323 g


*) It should be noted that all figures are actual measured values and not theoretically possible values of the LED. You can find further information on this product, including a short product video, at


RP-Engineering works on the product development in partnership Rutronik, a key supplier of electronics, from the beginning. The good availability of components, such as LEDs and ceramic capacitors, is essential for the product development and forms the basis of the good working relationship. The specialists at Rutronik are also able to provide assistance with difficult matters, always finding the right part or solution.
