Grote Industries has introduced a 12-volt version of its S100 LED WhiteLight surface-mount dome lamp that incorporates infrared motion activation, eliminating the need for an on-off switch. Like its 24-volt cousin, the 12-volt lamp is activated using a passive infrared motion sensor located in the lamp body, according to the company; the sensor is calibrated to recognize the heat signature unique to humans, and when it detects movement by a person within six feet, it will turn on immediately. Grote says the lamp will remain on as movement continues, and will stay on for three minutes after the last motion is detected.

All S100 LED dome lamps are engineered for durability using high-impact UV-stabilized polycarbonate material and feature moisture-resistant construction and a sleek look. Their thin 15-millimeter profile helps reduce the potential of objects colliding with the lamps, and they are engineered with wire channels to facilitate quick, neat installation. According to the company, the lamps utilize the latest surface-mount LED technology and generate a bright 300-lumen output with low amperage draw and minimal heat generation.

Grote says the S100 lamps, which also offer the performance benefits of Grote’s proprietary LED WhiteLight technology, are suited for dry vans, utility vans, moving trucks and delivery vehicles, but currently are not recommended for refrigerated environments; a surface-mount infrared motion-activated LED dome lamp specifically designed for refrigeration applications is now in testing and is expected to be available in the near future.
