Lighting solutions specialist Glamox has extended its high performance range of LED floodlights for installation and use in safe areas on ships and other marine vessels such as cruise ships and super yachts.
The attractively designed floodlights provide instantaneous, high intensity light, as well as offering excellent heat management, up to 50,000 hours life expectancy and low energy consumption.
The FL40 floodlight from Glamox is the latest addition to the company’s family of safe area floodlights. By using the latest LED technology, the FL40 offers a virtually maintenance-free solution. Due to its instantaneous, high intensity light source and different light beam options of 20°, 40°, 60° and 80°, the floodlights are suitable for a variety of applications, including general illumination of outdoor work areas, funnels and deck areas. The FL40 is also Germanische Lloyd (GL) approved, which means it is suitable for use in safety and rescue applications such as man overboard lighting. The FL40 operates in ambient temperatures ranging from -35ºC to +45ºC.
Excellent heat management and long system lifetime
Heat management and high reliability are decisive factors when developing new LED lighting solutions. The FL40 LED light source and new integrated driver technology are designed to meet this challenge, providing a long operating life of at least 50,000 hours at 45ºC. The virtually maintenance-free luminaire therefore provides savings in terms of product lifecycle costs.
The FL40 floodlight is housed in a compact, seawater-resistant, aluminium housing with integral driver for 110V up to 240V AC/DC. The floodlight is mounted on a 316 stainless steel frame and adjustable mounting bracket. The combination of these materials offers a robust, reliable floodlight that weighs just 4.8kg. The FL40 is also protected by an impact-resistant ESG (safety glass), uses a halogen-free connection cable and is designed to withstand water jets and immersion.
The FL40 floodlight also offers substantial savings in terms of energy consumption. Equipped with an energy saving 99W LED light source with an output of 10,000 Lumen, the floodlight has a high luminous efficacy and can replace a 500W halogen light. Various colour temperatures of 3000, 4000 and 5000 Kelvin create a warm-white up to a cold-white lighting effect.
Alan Mellows, UK Sales Director at Glamox International comments: “The FL40 is an extremely attractive, bright floodlight that provides instantaneous lighting for a wide range of general illumination duties on cruise ships, super yachts and other marine vessels. The floodlight is also GL-approved, which means shipyards and marine operators can install the FL40 as a man overboard light or other safety rescue light.”
The FL40 is manufactured according to the latest marine classification societies and additional VDE and IEC/EN standards. For more information on the FL40, please visit www.glamox.com/gmo
