Magnalight Announces Addition of Rechargeable and Portable Hazardous Area Light



The RUL-9 portable hazardous area light from Larson Electronics’ Magnalight.com provides high power, durable operation, rechargeable capability, and 5 hours of powerful illumination in a Class 1 Division 2 approved hazardous location rated package. 

This portable hazardous location light is designed to provide a strong light beam and long run times on a single charge of its lithium-ion batteries. Equipped with an integral carry handle, rear mounted LEDs and articulating head, this portable light is suited to a wide variety of uses including industrial applications, utility work, military and law enforcement, fire/rescue and emergency services.

Made in the USA and designed to provide a rugged lighting solution for use in demanding hazardous locations, the RUL-9 portable and rechargeable light produces 120,000 candlepower and can operate for 5 hours on a single charge of its lithium-ion batteries. Constructed with a high strength nylon body with rubberized coating, this unit is built to withstand demanding service. 

This portable and rechargeable light is designed with lithium-ion batteries which give it a run time of 5 hours on a single charge and require no special charging procedures to maintain battery life. It is not necessary to fully discharge the batteries before recharging, the included charger will not overcharge, and the unit can be left sitting for up to 18 months without losing its charge or a decrease in battery service life. 

The lithium ion battery pack in this portable light also helps this unit achieve a 33% lighter weight than its competitors, an important consideration for firefighters whose basic equipment can already weigh 65-70 lbs. This high power rechargeable light is approved for Class 1 Division 2 hazardous locations, making it ideal for use in industrial and commercial operations where flammable and hazardous atmospheres may be present. 

The single Xenon bulb and specially designed reflector in this light produces 120,000 candlepower and 1102 Lux at 25 feet, making it comparable in effectiveness to a 24 watt HID Powerlight™. The light beam from this portable light can reach over 600 feet in length, making it well suited to utility and emergency services applications as well. This versatile portable light is waterproof and includes a pair of rear mounted red and white LEDs that can act as locator, signal or warning lights as needed. Operation is controlled by a booted, three way push button switch which allows operators to operate the main beam and LEDs independently or in tandem. 

The light head is adjustable and can be moved through 90 degrees of adjustment for optimal beam placement. An included 120 Volt AC wall charger provides easy recharging and will not overcharge the unit, allowing operators to simply leave the light connected to the charging unit when not in use to ensure a full charge anytime the light is needed. 

Magnalight also offers a magnetic mounting system which consists of a 5 inch diameter magnetic base with 200 lbs of gripping force, powder coated steel bracket, and spring loaded fastener. This RUL-9-MB magnetic mounting base is easily attached and detached and allows operators to temporarily attach this unit to any metallic surface to provide a hands free source of illumination that can be positioned however they require. This portable hazardous location light meets NFPA 1901-14.1.11.2 compliance and is an ideal addition to any industry professionals’ lighting equipment inventory.

MADE IN THE USA rugged and durable the RUL-9 with  a Class 1 Division 2 and Class 2 Division 2 rating has the functionality of an articulating head and lithium ion batteries with smart charging technology,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics’ Magnalight.com.  “Operators working in emergency services, utility work and hazardous locations will appreciate the 5 hour run time on a charge and the optional magnetic base RUL-9-MB that increases the maneuverability of this light.”

Magnalight Announces Addition of Economical LED Alternative to Traditional Light Towers

Magnalight Announces Addition of Economical LED Alternative to Traditional Light Towers Larson Electronics’ Magnalight.com has announced the addition of an LED light tower that provides an economical yet powerful alternative to halogen and metal halide light towers.

Designed to provide high quality illumination for large areas, the WALTP-2XWP400 LED light tower produces as much light as comparable
halogen towers and rivals metal halide units for total area coverage. Costing less than traditional HID towers, this LED light tower provides further savings through greatly reduced energy consumption and no need for frequent bulb replacements.

The WALTP-2XWP400 Telescoping Tripod Light Tower from Magnalight is designed to provide brilliant illumination rivaling the output from traditional halogen and metal halide towers while reducing purchasing and operating costs. 

Equipped with two waterproof and vapor proof 40 watt LED light heads producing a total of 2,924 lumens, this light tower can be extended from 4 feet to 9 feet in total height. Each LED light head is constructed of aluminum and finished in a durable powder coat for durability and resistance to corrosion. Polycarbonate lenses provide impact resistant protection for the LED lamp assemblies and integral cooling fins provide efficient cooling to extend and preserve these LED’s 50,000 hour lamp life rating. 

The rugged aluminum tripod can be extended from 4 feet to 9 feet in height and has a removable light head bracket and collapsible legs to provide easy take down and transport capability. The light weight of the LED assemblies and rugged tripod construction provides excellent tower stability, even in windy conditions.

Each LED light head is wired independently, allowing operators to run either one or both of the lights if desired. The light output from this unit is equal to a dual 400 watt halogen equipped unit, but the light produced is much whiter, with better color rendering and contrasting without the yellowish tint associated with halogens. 

The special LED and reflector design provides a light beam that exceeds 250 watt metal halide lights in total length; all while using only 80 watts at .90 amps of total power. This unit uses far less power than either metal halide or halogen light towers, and has none of the associated high heat or fragile filaments and glass that can make traditional towers hazardous and costly to work with. 

This unit provides big illumination in a small package that can be easily stowed and deployed in a very short amount of time, making it an ideal lighting solution for first responders, emergency utility services, maintenance operations and outdoor events.

Based on photometric data and observation, this tripod mounted, 2 headed mini LED light tower will provide similar light output to two 400 watt metal halide flood lights,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics’ Magnalight.com. “This is very cost effective, highly durable LED lighting solution for difficult environments, with the flexibility to position the lights as low as 3 feet and as high as 12 feet.”

Larson Electronics’ Magnalight offers a wide selection of LED light towers, Led work lights, explosion proof LED lights, LED flashlights, intrinsically safe LEDs and LED spotlights.
