Grote Industries has announced the sixth addition to its advanced LED WhiteLight Work Lampsline—the Trilliant 36 LED WhiteLight with mounting bracket. The new lamp has a 40,000-hour service rating and an adjustable mounting bracket capable of 180-degrees of vertical rotation, aid Grote.
“The first thing you notice about this lamp is its compact size and brightness,” said Scott Robertson, product manager for WhiteLight. “It’s the same size and shape of a standard PAR 36 bulb mounted on an adjustable bracket, but it’s packed with advanced electronics that drive high-output LEDs to their optimal limit.”
Grote said its engineers leveraged their more than 20 years of experience in LED thermal management and optic design to create the new lamp, which features a revolutionary new TractorPlus beam pattern that delivers almost three times more usable light than traditional PAR 36 products.
According to Grote, given its service life rating of 40,000 hours, the Trilliant 36 is the “logical alternative to the widely used PAR 36 incandescent work lamp. With the life span of incandescent bulbs rated between 25 hours and 500 hours, the cost of ownership for these lamps quickly adds up, the company noted. When a fleet factors in the loss of human and vehicle productivity associated with bulb outages and the time it takes to obtain and replace bulbs, Grote added, the cost of incandescent lamp use rises exponentially and the energy consumption of incandescent and halogen lamps adversely affect their cost impact as well.
Grote calculates that its new lamp will provide end users with 100 times the lifespan of a traditional PAR 36 bulb and will save them approximately $600 in bulb replacement costs over its service life. The new lamp will also dramatically decrease equipment downtime and the loss of productivity associated with changing light bulbs, the company added.
