KH Industries, U.S. manufacturer of industrial grade lighting and power products has expanded its offering on its Quad Light to include 3,200 and 7,200 lumen LED models.
KH Industries, a long time manufacturing partner with The Boeing Company, designed the original fluorescent Quad Light based on specifications from a site visit to the 737 production line. At the time, the lead KH Industries engineer was Joseph Pinker, Jr., who today serves as president of KH Industries.
Today, the partnership has evolved as well as the Quad Light product line. The Quad Light is known for its durability and is the industry standard for rugged, wide area lighting that can withstand the rigors of the aerospace and MRO industries. Now with the recent dual cUS/CSA Certification for the 3,200 Lumen and the 7,200 Lumen models the LED Quad Light will deliver a virtually unbreakable wide area, portable lighting system.
“Typically the Quad Lights are used in large scale manufacturing, overhaul, and maintenance,” says Joseph Halas, regional sales manager, KH Industries. “The LED Quad Lights were designed specifically for the aerospace industry. They use them during new construction or retrofitting an aircraft because you can daisy chain up to 20 lights together and it will illuminate the entire fuselage. The LEDs don’t emit heat and draw very little energy. Additionally, the lights are made for rough service areas and can take an unusual amount of abuse.”
“The quality and lumen output of LEDs has dramatically improved in the last few years. We are using the new generation of Surface Mounted (SMD) LEDs in the Quad Light which only enhances the durability and ruggedness of the light. The new LED Quad Lights have a longer bulb lifespan, lower power consumption, and are more durable than traditional fluorescent bulbs,” explains Joseph Pinker Jr., president of KH Industries.
“The intensely bright lumen output and color rendition surpassed our quality tests. We partnered with the world’s largest aerospace company to field testing the lights and their positive feedback on the LED Quad Light was the driving force behind bringing this product to market for the rest of the airline maintenance, repair, and overhaul industries,” says Pinker.
The benefits of using SMB LEDs vs. fluorescent are:
High Brightness and Superior Color Rendition:
Longer Lifespan; better for the environment:
The LED Quad Lights can be used for feed through lighting or single use. They are available with clear tubeshields for 360° wide area lighting or reflective tube shields for focused task lighting. The lights have flexible positioning and can hang, stand, or lay on the floor, they also come with mounting straps and 45° angled feet.
