Larson launches new lights

Sep 17, 2013 by Guest Writer

Texas-based Larson Electronics has added several new products to its line, including a high intensity LED boat light, a magnetic mount LED light bar, and a 100-foot explosion proof extension cord.

The high-intensity LED boat light draws 70 watts at 5.84 amps when connected to 12 VDC current yet produces more than 6,000 lumens of light. The light is IP68 rated waterproof to 3m and sealed against intrusion from water, dust and contaminants. It contains seven 10-watt Cree LEDs and lasts for 50,000 hours, according to a company statement. For heat control, this light contains pulse width modulation (PWM) LED drivers that monitor heat and modify current accordingly.

The magnetic light bar is designed for rugged use with a compact and waterproof housing formed from extruded aluminum, unbreakable polycarbonate lens, and a magnetic mounting base with 200 pounds of grip. It also is IP68 rated waterproof to 3m of submersion.    

The extension cord is constructed of 12/3 SOOW explosion proof cord rated at 250 volts and 20 amps. It is fitted with an explosion proof twist lock receptacle constructed of non sparking aluminum on one end for connection of equipment and an EPP-250-2P-20A explosion proof plug on the other for connection to power receptacles.
