LumaStar from Jerguson® Advances Customer' Operations



Jerguson's LumaStar, a revolutionary Flat Glass LED Illuminator backlighting unit for transparent level gages, utilizes breakthrough LED technology to simplify operators' once challenging task of verifying levels.

The innovative, unique Jerguson® LumaStrar LED illuminator is the only illuminator available that does not depend on a single light source. It features a redundant array of LED lights approximately every 1/2 inch to ensure that multiple bulbs are available for a bright, even distribution of light.

Customers everywhere are benefiting from LumaStar's advanced design. "I purchased some 50 units of Jerguson® LumaStar Illuminators for Chevron's Hawaii Refinery. The operators are very pleased with this unit as it radiates a tremendous amount of lighting through the gage glasses, unlike the older incandescent types we had here," said Darrin M. Matsumiya, I/E Supervisor/Analyst at Chevron Texaco Hawaii Refinery. "This makes for verifying levels in columns, vessels, drums, etc. much easier. This is a good product and suited our needs perfectly."

LumaStar provides brilliant illumination of the process level and a maintenance-free bulb life of over 10 years. The impact on plant safety and reliability is immediate. Plus, the LumaStar LED Illuminator pays for itself in less than two years through maintenance and electricity savings.

The new Jerguson® LumaStar also surpasses the length limitations of current "wedge" or "fiberoptic" type illuminators that cover a maximum of two sections or three sections respectively. The introduction of the LumaStar enables coverage of up to four gage sections and allows the use of a single illuminator and power supply for the majority of level gage applications, saving both time and money on instillation.
The LumaStar is available in 120 and 240 VAC options and is FM Approved for use in hazardous environments.
