Grote adds Trilliant 36 LED WhiteLight with mounting bracket

Updated Mar 9, 2010

Grote Industries, a world leader in high-performance LED lighting technology for the transportation industry, introduced the sixth member of its advanced LED WhiteLight Work Lamps Portfolio today: the revolutionary Trilliant 36 LED WhiteLight With Mounting Bracket.

The new lamp has a 40,000-hour service rating and an adjustable mounting bracket capable of 180-degrees of vertical rotation. The new Trilliant 36 LED WhiteLight With Mounting Bracket takes its place among Grote’s elite group of six high-tech, high-performance, LED WhiteLight Work Lamps.

“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.”
Grote engineers leveraged their more than 20 years of experience in LED thermal management and optic design to create the new lamp, which features a revolutionary new TractorPlus beam pattern that delivers almost three times more usable light than traditional PAR 36 product offerings.
“This is one of the most intelligent lighting devices Grote has ever engineered,” Robertson said. “Grote’s new TractorPlus beam pattern really underscores the difference between Grote’s emphasis on usable light output versus total light output. In the case of the TractorPlus lens, it takes nearly 1,350 raw lumens to produce the optimized TractorPlus beam pattern.”
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.
“This lamp is just one of six of the most technologically advanced, highest performing and most diverse LED work lamps in the industry,” Robertson said. “Grote has covered the entire spectrum of work lamp functionality with its work lamp offering and in doing so, has put all the benefits of its advanced LED WhiteLight technology within virtually anyone’s reach.
