Larson Electronics Releases a Remote Controlled Spotlight Mounted Atop a 6' Light Pole
Press release date: August 12, 2014
With over 40 years as a leader in the industrial and commercial lighting industry Larson Electronics continues its commitment to providing high-grade lighting equipment to specialty markets with the release of a 65 watt halogen pole mounted remote control work light.
The FPM-72-GLS fixed pole mounted remote control work light from Larson Electronics is designed to provide convenient and secure lighting for operators working from within the utility vehicle or when away from the vehicle. This pole mounted light has a 65 watt remote control light head mounted on top of a six foot aluminum pole equipped with a slip fit mounting base for attachment to the sides of man lifts, lift buckets, trailers, or utility vehicles. The 6.5 million candlepower spotlight draws 5.43 amps from a 12 volt DC power source. The aluminum construction, high power LED light output, easy mounting and high degree of adjustability make this an ideal lightweight alternative to heavy and cumbersome metal halide or incandescent tripod lighting systems.
This remote control light was designed for hunting and demanding outdoor use with a weather resistant housing constructed of a high quality ASA Luran thermoplastic that is heat resistant, impact resistant, UV resistant and able to withstand rugged use and abusive conditions. This light provides 370° rotation and 170° vertical tilt. Remote control functions include on/off and four buttons which control up, down, left and right movement. The light will continue movement as long as the buttons are depressed. Releasing the buttons stops movement and the light will hold its position. A fast and slow mode button controls the speed of the motor while the pan and tilt function buttons are depressed. The 65 watt bulb in this unit is paired with a tight focus reflector and thick glass lens to produce a narrow spot beam 850 feet in length.
The base on this unit is designed to allow mounting to flat surfaces such as the sides of lifts, trailers, or truck beds and the entire unit can be removed from the base and collapsed, aiding in deployment, storage and transport. Included with this work light is ten feet of cord for hard wiring the unit to a 12 volt DC power source. The locking mounting bracket mounts to flat surfaces using screws or bolts, and operators can then simply slip the pole into the bracket, lock the pole into place with the hand screw, then plug the unit in. The light head can be easily removed from the tower for stowing or transport.
“This light is suitable for fire trucks, search and rescue operations, EMTs, utility vehicles, boats, ATVs, and similar sources of 12 volt direct current,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larsonelectronics.com.
