VALO Ortho Cordless uses a custom, multiwavelength light-emitting diode (LED) for producting high-intensity light at 395-480nm, which is capable of polymerizing all light-cured dental materials. This intensity will also penetrate porcelain and is capable of curing underlying resin cements similar to a quality halogen light. VALO Ortho Cordless uses VALO Cordless rechargeable batteries and a battery charger suitable for power outlets from 100 to 240 volts. The handpiece is designed to rest in a standard dental unit bracket or can be custom mounted using the bracket included in the kit. It can also be stored on a countertop or in a drawer. VALO Ortho Cordless is equipped with a sensor that registers movement of the light; when the light is not being used, VALO Ortho Cordless will automatically go into sleep mode and when moved will return to the most recently used setting.
