Utility supplies: Larson Electronics reveals their newly designed work area LED string lights. The 10 watt LED lamps on this work site light set provides higher quality light than 50 wattage incandescent lights while creating less heat and using less power.
The WAL-SL-5-LED work area string lights from Larson Electronics consists of five industrial grade LED lamps with 10 feet of 14/3 SJTW cable between each lamp. This temporary LED string light system is connected to power via an integrated 3¹ cable terminated with a standard 5-15 straight blade plug. Each globe light is equipped with a high output LED bub which delivers more light output than a 100 watt incandescent. The 10 watt LED bulb draws 10% of the electrical power of a standard 100 watt bulb, making it suitable for standard voltage and low voltage applications. Each LED light screws into a molded E26 lamp socket and the bulb is enclosed in a bird cage style plastic guard.
Each lamp is protected by a yellow plastic guard enclosure that has a hook to hang the task lights overhead. Multiple light stringers can be connected end to end to extend work area illumination. There are limits to how many strings can be interconnected based on the overall amp draw and power source. Utilizing energy efficient LED lamps, operators are able to provide more light coverage from the same amp draw, or lower the amp draw using the same amount of LED lamps as incandescent. Each LED trouble light has an effective range that approximately covers 5 to 8 foot radius with 10-15 foot candles of light. These lights are configured to operate with 120V-277V AC current and are available in an optional 12-24V DC configuration as well. The LED lamps are suitable for wet areas, extremely long lived, resistant to damage from impacts and vibrations, and consume far less energy than standard lamps.
“The LED bulbs in these hand lamps have no filament, making them resistant to damage from impacts and dropping,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larsonelectronics.com. “The LED technology of the bulbs provides better quality illumination than 100 watt incandescent lights without the heat and fragile construction.”
