LEDs outperform traditional energy saving lighting
American Sales Development LLC’s LED lighting units for under-shelf and workstation installations use 90% less electricity than incandescent and fluorescent lighting. Their lifespan is 133 times greater and use 25 times less heat with greater brightness without flickering or toxic materials such as mercury, gasses or glass. An LED light is a tiny chip encapsulated in an epoxy resin enclosure, making it sturdier than traditional incandescent light bulbs or fluorescent tubes. There are no fragile components such as glass and filaments, so they withstand shock, vibration and extreme temperatures. ASD’s LED lights range from 9-30 W, 810- 2700 lm and 600-6,500 K. The units plug into a standard 110 V outlet, have a side mounted on/off switch and require no transformer or ballast. The units come in 24-, 36- and 48-in. lengths with either a single or double row of LEDs and/or standard or magnetic base configurations for portable mounting to metal surfaces. American Sales Development, based in Fairfield, Conn., supplies safety and material handling products.
Stacklights are explosion proof
PATLITE AR-078 Patlite’s AR-070 and AR-078 LED explosion-proof stacklight towers are ideal for Zone 2 (flammable) and Zone 22 (dust) environments. They’re rated to IP65 without alarm/flashing, and IP54. The manufacturer of network systems based in Torrance, Calif. recommends the tower’s glass fibre-reinforced polyester base, 1.5 m cable and a sealed cable exit for user-adjustable alarms up to 85 db (AR-070) and 90 db (AR-078) in gaseous and dusty environments. They’re wall or direct mounted, and can be stacked five high in red, amber, green, blue and clear configurations. AR-070 models are 40 mm in diameter and have an optional 1/2 in. NPT. AR-078 models are 60 mm in diameter and have an optional 3/4 in. NPT. LED modules are interchangeable to eliminate rewiring.
Flood-light produces super white-light
Lind 108W LE990 Say “let there be light” and Lind Equipment’s 108W LE990 portable fluorescent flood obliges with energy efficient white illumination.
The light has a rugged plastic housing with rubber gasketing and a strong polycarbonate lens for use in food plants where the use of glass is prohibited. At 8,250 lumens, it produces approximately the same light output as a 500 W quartz halogen, but uses only 20% of the energy.
Lind Equipment is a manufacturer of portable power and light products based in Markham, Ont.
