For the engineer on the go here’s a handy illumination solution that should be adequate in almost any remote situation, especially emergency operations at the transmitter site.
The Larson Electronics’ IL-LED-18-M generates 1,400 lumens. It has a magnetic mounting base, rated at 100 pounds and its stainless steel bracket allows it to be moved while attached.
A release explains, “This unit is configured to operate on 12 VDC and is equipped with an optional 16-foot coil cord with a cigarette plug, a 16-foot straight cord with a cigarette plug, a 21-foot cord with battery clamps, or a 21-foot cord with ring terminals.”
Each light has six LEDs and create a 60-degree flood beam yet only uses 18 watts. Expected lifetime is 30,000 hours.
Larson says, “This LED light is IP67 waterproof, sealed against intrusion by dust and dirt and ruggedly constructed to withstand demanding environments, conditions, and applications. These units can withstand rapid temperature changes of -40 degrees Celsius to 85 degrees Celsius and are recommended for use in high humidity climates, very cold areas, and rough saltwater conditions.”
Buy several and place them in vehicles and at the transmitter site.
