Magnalight.com by Larson Electronics Introduces a Versatile and High Powered LED Light for Boaters and Industrial Applications

Larson Electronics’ Magnalight new LEDPB10W-120X2E LED Light Bar uses advanced PWM technology to create 10,320 lumens of light with little heat and low amp draw. Rated IP68 and waterproof to three meters, this LED light bar is multi-voltage capable and can be ordered in 20 degree spotlight configurations or 40 degree floodlight configurations. These LED light bars are highly versatile, with advanced LED drivers and pulse width technology that allow operators to control brightness, flash or strobe functions by connecting the unit to an external controller. This advanced solid state technology also provides active heat control for maintaining LED longevity and excellent power efficiency.

Magnalight LEDPB10WBuilding upon the popularity of its extreme series of LED light bars, Magnalight.com now offers a mid-sized LED light bar with all the features and power of its larger units. Producing 10,320 lumens of bright white light and capable of operating on voltages ranging from 9 to 46 volts DC, the LEDPB10W-120X2E LED light bar is an ideal lighting solution for boats of any size and ideal for smaller craft requiring powerful illumination but limited in available mounting space. This light bar has a shorter overall length due to the creative arrangement of placing LEDs in dual rows, yet is capable of throwing a light beam 1,250 feet in length. This two row LED placement cuts the length of the light bar nearly in half, without sacrificing power or light quality. Part of Magnalights’ extreme series of LED light bars, this unit is IP68 rated and waterproof to 3 meters, constructed of heavy gauge extruded aluminum with an unbreakable Lexan lens, and designed to resist the corrosive and damaging effects of the marine environment. Drawing only 10 amps and 120 watts of power, this unit incorporates PWM, or, Pulse Width Modulation technology to achieve the utmost in heat control and versatility. This PWM technology allows this LED light bar to automatically adjust the power fed to each LED according to the LEDs temperature in order to prevent heat buildup from shortening LED life. Rather than simply lowering the power going to each LED when temperatures get too high, this PWM circuitry actually cycles the current on and off very quickly, but at full power. This cycling is too fast to detect with the human eye, but is quite effective in lowering LED operating temperatures. The end result is full brightness with excellent heat control, leading to maximum LED longevity. This PWM circuitry also allows this unit to be dimmed or brightened to desired levels, flashed on or off, or operated as a strobe light, simply by connecting an included control wire to an external pulse width controller or dimmer switch. This power, control and durability combined with a small and compact form factor makes this light ideal for commercial and recreational fishing boats as well as industrial applications like machine visioning systems which require powerful, yet precisely controllable light output. The multi-voltage capability of these LED lights allows them to be operated on current ranging from 9 to 46VDC without the need for external transformers or inverters and their low amp draw is battery friendly. 

“We continue to develop new LED lights to help boat operators extend their field of view for work and safety,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics’ magnalight.com.  “The LEDPB10W-120x2E is sleek, powerful and well suited for saltwater environments.  Given our advancement in optics technology, we don’t have a competitive product in the marketplace that can match the output of this LED light at this lumen output level. As such, this LED light serves both the commercial fishing fleet market and the recreational boating market.”
