Larson Electronics Releases a New 20 Watt LED Boat Light with a Perko Pole Mounting System
Press release date: April 4, 2014
Larson Electronics releases a new 20 watt LED boat light with a perko socket pole mounting system just in time for spring. This light produces a very tight spot pattern, can run on any 12 to 32 volt power source and provides a rugged lighting solution ideal for use in marine environments.
The LEDP2X10WRE-S-E from Larson Electronics is an LED light emitter with a perko post mount equipped with red and green navigational lights. It produces a 700’ long by 120’ wide light beam with 1,720 lumens of bright light while drawing only 20 watts from a 12 volt electrical system. This light emitter is comprised of two CREE Xlamp XM-L 10 watt LEDs producing 860 lumens each paired with high purity 10 degree optics to produce a tightly focused spot beam with limited spread or light spillage. This new boat light is ideal for anyone who is looking for a tight spot light that offers an outstanding life of 50,000 hours.
These LED light emitters are IP68 rated and waterproof to one meter, sealed against intrusion by dust and dirt and ruggedly constructed to withstand demanding environments and applications. They are constructed of extruded aluminum and feature rubber isolated mounts and unbreakable polycarbonate lenses to provide durability and resistance to vibrations, impacts, waves, hard rains, sand and high winds. The LEDP2X10WRE-S-E comes on a stanchion pole mount that enables the light to be installed and removed for storage. Pole length options include 6”, 12”, 24”, and 42”. Standard perko sockets are commonly installed on many boats and will accept a stanchion post mount. It has two gold platted connectors embedded in the nylon base that brings power from the perko socket. A locking nylon collar twists into place. The red and green running lights are visible at one nautical mile and will illuminate as long as there is power running to the perko socket.
“This new LED spotlight has come out just in the nick of time for fishing season for those avid fishermen,” Rob Bresnahan with Larsonelectronics.com. “The beam on this light emitter is so tight, it resembles the pattern of an HID spot without the distance of an HID light.”
