Since 1975, Princeton Tec® has innovated and developed products for everyone from the professional to the outdoor sports enthusiasts. It all started in Princeton, New Jersey, by Bill Stephens, an engineer by day and an entrepreneur by night running his own dive shop.
When Bill’s day job tried to relocate him to Indianapolis, far away from the Atlantic Ocean where he loved to dive, Bill quit and doubled down manufacturing the industry’s first automatic dive timer. This dive timer was the beginning of Princeton Tec.
Over the years, scuba lights began to take over the product line up. Over time, Princeton Tec expanded its lighting solutions to fit the needs of more than just divers. To this day, Princeton Tec is a family-owned and family-run business that develops and manufactures personal lighting systems for military/law enforcement/first responders, industrial, outdoor enthusiasts, and scuba professionals. Princeton Tec® operates its machine shop and injection molding facilities. Most importantly, they have remained an American manufacturer and local employer since the beginning.
Princeton Tec’s tactical illumination line-up is one of the most versatile and innovative in the industry. The solutions engineered provide the right amount of light exactly where you need it, regardless of the mission.
MODULAR PERSONAL LIGHTING SYSTEM (MPLS)
MPLS tactical lights provide hands-free personal task lighting in a versatile, streamlined, and straightforward format. The mount placements are customizable to your setup while keeping overall gear weight to a minimum.
MPLS HEADLAMPS – UNMATCHED BRIGHTNESS TO ACCOMPLISH ANY MISSION.
When your mission requires more power than a task light, the MPLS headlamp system is your solution. Using different LED styles and formations, choose from the Princeton Tec® line of durable headlamps to accomplish your tasks. From a 150-lumen spot beam to a four-LED area light, there’s a light for every need and situation.
MPLS HELMET LIGHTS – DESIGNED FOR ADAPTABILITY
The MPLS helmet light fits wherever you have one of their various mounts. The MPLS helmet lights are fast and effective and can be taken off your helmet and attached to any piece of gear with MOLLE webbing, a gear strap, or headstrap in a matter of seconds. This line of lights also boasts multiple specialty color LEDs available in a variety of clusters.
With a collapsible globe, folding legs, and multiple hanging and aiming options, the Helix® lantern series is incredibly adaptable. Each model is easy to use and water-resistant to IPX6 standards. Choose from 150 to 250 lumens with long burn times and a uniquely intuitive control surface.
The Princeton Tec® emergency Meridian® and Aqua® are strobe/beacon lights visible for over a mile. These essential lights will withstand the rigors of any mission or condition. The IPX8 waterproof rating lets you get to work and stay bright through even the most demanding conditions.
