Golight, specializing in pan-and-tilt remote-controlled lighting technology, recently launched new, more powerful versions of its Stryker ST and Golight GT remote-controlled LED work lamps.
The company said the introduction of the new lamps marks a milestone in vehicle-mounted, remote-controlled work lamps. Now packing “unprecedented” beam strength of 544,000 candela, each lamp is 33% more powerful than before, and 55% more intense than any competing product.
Both lamps feature Golight’s proprietary P-Vex lens that controls the raw lumens generated by 10 high-flux LEDs, creating an intense, tightly controlled 544,000-candela spot beam pattern that can brightly illuminate a target at a distance of 4,839 feet (1,475 meters), the company claimed. The lamps’ optical design, lens clarity and powerful new LEDs generate a precise spectral pattern without dark spots or other imperfections.
“Our patented optics will now allow users to illuminate and see objects farther downrange than ever before,” said Colt Hosick, director of product development for Golight. “The bright white LED light beams these lamps project are between 5,800K to 6,200K, roughly the color temperature of natural sunlight and optimal for human vision. Combined, our lamp features enable users to see a more crisp and well-defined view of whatever target they need to illuminate.”
Hosick said the industry often confuses lumens with candela when it comes to lighting, and that this can be detrimental to any meaningful comparison. “It’s like comparing the light performance of a light bulb hanging in the middle of a room with that of a directional spotlight. It’s apples and oranges,” he said.
Spotlight performance measurements have been established by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and that peak beam intensity is defined by candela. Beam intensity, represented strictly as candela, and maximum beam distance measurements are presented with all Golight models.
Both Stryker ST and Golight GT remote-controlled LED models focus their beam patterns at an 8-degree angle. These lenses are designed for targeting objects in the distance, and for utility and telecom fleets performing riding-line inspections in dark conditions.
Optional snap-on and snap-off flood lenses for broader area illumination applications also are available for both lamps and produce a more diffused beam with a 35-degree angle.
Stryker ST and Golight GT lamps are available in a variety of wireless and hard-wired versions and a range of permanent and portable magnetic mounting options. Remote controllers for both lamps come in a variety of styles. The lamps come in 12- and 24-volt versions.
Both lamps have hermetically sealed lamp structures and come with a high-impact, UV-ray-resistant and saltwater-resistant housing suitable for land and marine applications. The Stryker ST comes with a five-year unlimited warranty, and the Golight GT comes with a three-year unlimited warranty.
“Golight invented the pan-and-tilt remote-controlled lighting industry more than 25 years ago and continues to lead in performance, innovation and product depth,” Hosick said. “With the introduction of our new 544,000-candela Stryker ST and Golight GT remote-controlled LED work lamps, we’ve set another new standard in the industry.”
