Grote Industries is now shipping its 61F61 Infrared Motion-Activated Dome Lamp to customers. The 61F61 is a motion-activated LED dome lamp from the company’s WhiteLight product line and is particularly well-suited for refrigerated trailer and body applications.
“Grote is the undisputed leader in interior LED lighting for the refrigerated transport sector,” said Scott Robertson, product manager of forward and interior lighting at Grote Industries. “Our new 61F61 was designed specifically with the challenges of the reefer environment in mind.”
The lamp is designed to withstand 100% humidity common to refrigerated environments by using a rugged, sealed-sensor design to block moisture. Because it is motion-activated, there is no on-off switch that could succumb to the conditions.
The 61F61’s passive infrared motion sensor is calibrated to recognize the human heat signature, so when a person moves within 6 ft., they activate the lamp, said Grote. The lamp remains on while activity is detected and stays on for three minutes following the last human motion.
The energy-efficient, 800-lumen 61F61 is designed to extend a vehicle’s battery life by reducing its exposure to power draws during prolonged stops, the maker pointed out, making it an intelligent choice for vehicles multiple stops in a shift.
