Product information

John W. Hock Company CDC Miniature Light - Model 512

This trap is a reliable and portable sampling device for colelcting the mosquitoes and sand flies used in arbovirus and taxonomic studies. It is a basic trap, as the PhotoSwitch and Air-Actuated Gate System are optional. 

The CDC Miniature Light - Model 512 trap is a standard, battery operated tool and it is currently used world-wide arbovirus and taxonomic studies. Even tought it is a basic trap, it allows the addition of PhotoSwitch (LCS-2) and Air-Actuated Gate System. It can be used to collect mosquitoes and sand flies for 3-4 nights, only after it is configured with a switch and gate and a small battery. 

Optional features:

  • LCS-2 PhotoSwitch: this optional addition to the traps helps to turn if off at dusk and on at dawn. If it is installed with the Air-Actuated Gate System (optional addition), it can preserve the life of the battery and it allows a single trip to the trap per day for consecutive days of collection.
  •  Air-Actuated Gate System: this gate system employs a butterfly check valve downwind of the motor which is opened by air from the fan and closed by counter-balancing weights. The gates and pivot shafts are made of stainless steel and are entirely maintenance free. If this optional feature is installed along with the PhotoSwitch, you can only use a small battery and the trap will be operating for 3-4 night, with only one trip to the trap. When a series of traps are being run, the combination of PhotoSwitch and gate system results in substantial labor savings by allowing once-a-day tending and eliminating the need for early morning and late evening work.
