Grote introduces Trilliant 36 LED WhiteLight with Mounting Bracket

New work lamp packs more than 1,350 raw lumens of brilliant LED WhiteLight into a compact, easy-to-install package.

Madison, Ind., February 24, 2010—Grote Industries, an LED lighting technology company, has introduced the sixth member of its advanced LED WhiteLight Work Lamps Portfolio: the Trilliant 36 LED WhiteLight With Mounting Bracket.

“The first thing you notice about this lamp is its compact size and brightness,” Scott Robertson, product manager of LED WhiteLight for Grote Industries said. “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.”

LED lamps are commonly compared on the basis of raw lumen output and many end users are comfortable with comparing lamps based upon that standard measurement. Grote’s optical engineers design lens configurations that convert raw lumens into precisely controlled beam patterns that focus light in unique ways. The new lamp comes with either a wide flood or TractorPlus beam pattern. Both beam patterns are engineered to provide optimal lighting characteristics for specific applications and each lens type changes the number of focused lumens accordingly.

With a service life rating of 40,000 hours, the new Trilliant 36 LED WhiteLight With Mounting Bracket 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. 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, the true cost of incandescent use rises exponentially. 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 Trilliant 36 LED WhiteLight With Mounting Bracket is manufactured with rugged UV, hard-coated, polycarbonate lens that can be replaced if damaged. The lens can be easily interchanged and the conversion from a wide flood lens to TractorPlus lens takes just seconds. The lamp also comes with a AMP-style connector and pigtail for hardwired applications.
