This week we’re resuming our series that takes a look back at some recent product introductions for specific categories and specs. After all, since most of you are busy enough trying to manage your own business and make as much money as possible, it’s likely you occasionally might have missed a few gear rollouts over the past few months. So that’s why we’re hitting rewind on some new lighting products to help you keep shining brightly.
Emergi-Safe’s 2020 combines the functions of a high-power warning beacon, flashlight and work light into one product to complement reflective triangles and provide an alternative to incendiary strike flares. The light is 12 inches tall and features an LED module with 16 high-intensity wide-angle dual-color (red and white) LEDs designed to provide a full 360 degrees of high-power warning.
Optronics’ HD 500 Series LED stop, tail and turn lamps have a raised linear focal point in the center for a three-dimensional look. Both the four-inch round and six-inch oval models are engineered with an 18-diode configuration that produces a light pattern and bright perimeter of LEDs surrounding a convex central feature with a contrasting illumination pattern.
Golight’s GXL 4021 fixed-position LED work light has a fascia that measures 4½ inches wide by 4 inches tall with a 3½-inch depth. The permanently-mounted manually-adjustable light has a hardened aluminum housing and four clusters of four high-powered LEDs controlled through three rugged polycarbonate lenses to generate a maximum output of 4,500 lumens.
Truck-Lite’s 4-by-6-inch (165 mm) rectangular LED headlight system has a multivolt design (9-33v) suited for medium-duty trucks and is a drop-in replacement for most 1A1 and 2A1 sealed beams. The lightweight system is the follow-up to the company’s 7-inch round and 5-by-7-inch headlight systems and is designed for an optimal beam pattern with improved width and longer reach.
Peterson’s LumenX LED line now includes 4-inch Round Strobe and 6-inch Oval Strobe lights. Both models offer 12- and 24-volt compatibility and are rated for use as directional flashing warning devices on Class 1 and 2 emergency, maintenance and service vehicles. The lights feature white-diode LEDs and the company’s proprietary lens design that illuminates the entire lens fully and evenly without hotspots or dead zones, regardless of viewing angle.
Phillips’ three-quarter-inch Permalite XT PC2-rated round marker/clearance LED lights are designed for improved light dispersal for vehicles more than 80 inches wide. The lights are manufactured with the company’s Boardfree technology, an in-mold process that uses a single LED sealed in a compact acrylic housing that helps protect against damage from moisture intrusion, harsh chemicals and UV exposure.
Ecco’s ED3706 Series SAE Class I Directional LED has an ultra-thin low-profile design and is available in solid and split color. The light features 21 flash patterns and synchronization capability and is designed for maximum light output at all angles for a variety of applications. Mounting options include surface mount, adhesive mount, edge mount and permanent.
Grote’s LED 6-inch oval and 4-inch round Stop/Tail/Turn lamps both are equipped with an integral LED built-in backup lamp designed to combine dual functions with longer-life LED technology. Combining S/S/T and backup functions allows elimination of two holes and two lamps at the rear of straight, vocational and specialized vehicles as well as elimination of separate backup lamps on HD power modules.
Finally, Larson Electronics’ pedestal-mount 150-watt LED lamp assembly has an aluminum base stand with magnetic mounting capabilities and is designed to illuminate 8,000 square feet of work area with 10,000 lumens of light output, providing a hazardous location-suitable lighting solution. The lamp features a 16-inch light head and 100 feet of cord.
