Larson Electronics releases a 600 watt High Intensity LED Skid Mount Five Stage Light Mast.
October 16, 2014
  Kemp, Texas (PRWEB) October 16, 2014         The LM-30-8-5S-4X150RT-LED-EW-SM-RD five stage telescoping steel light mast with electric winch from Larson Electronics is designed to quickly and safely deploy 600 watts of intense LED lighting in locations where elevated illumination is needed for maximum area coverage. This mast is equipped with four 150 watt LED lamps that produce a wide spread of intense white light, allowing this unit to effectively cover large work areas with high quality illumination. This light boom can be extended to 30' for maximum area coverage, collapsed to 8.83' and is constructed of square steel tubing in different dimensions for each section. The mast is elevated using an included 3,500 lbs. electric winch with 3/16" galvanized braided cable. The light heads on this tower are wet area suitable high output LED fixtures that produce a combined total of approximately 50,000 lumens at 600 watts. These lamps have a copper free aluminum alloy body that is powder coated for added durability and aesthetics.

LED Lighting Inc. Announces New High Performance 24-Volt Tape Light & Versa Bar XLR.
October 16, 2014
  Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 16, 2014         LED Lighting Inc. (http://www.ledlightinginc.com), a primary resource for custom illumination solutions, has added 24-volt tape light and expanded their Versa Bar product line to include "XLR" (extra long run). The Versa Bar XLR is offered in warm white (3000K), neutral white (4300K) and cool white (6250K).             "We are committed to ensuring that our customers have the best products for their applications, which drives us to constant and never ending improvement of our products and services," says LED Lighting Inc.'s CEO, William (Bill) Hood.       Customers will experience numerous benefits including: half the current usage, cooler operating temperatures and the ability to specify longer runs per driver; the Versa Bar XLR has a maximum run of 32 feet per driver.           Most significantly, customers will experience minimal voltage drop, which ensures a more consistent light output from beginning to end. The importance of voltage drop for LED lighting is that an LED requires a minimum amount of current to accurately light. Less than the minimum current can cause an LED to flicker, or change the color and luminosity. This is more prominent in longer runs of LED tape light or Versa Bars.
