Many operators in the military, utility and construction segments want versatility in their mounting options

As the name would indicate, the Golight spotlights are controlled via remote controllers, including both hard wired mounted joystick style controllers and wireless handheld and mounted button style models. If the operator depresses the buttons or the joystick, signals are sent to the motors in the Golight, causing it to rotate 360 degrees or tilt over a range of 140 degrees. The operator can also control the power to the light, which enables them to position the light head for activating the beam.

The standard Golight Stryker model offers a 900 foot long beam that presents a wide spot pattern with a width of 135 at that distance. The High Intensity Discharge (HID) Golight upgrade spotlights increase total beam distance of 2,800 feet (930 yards or 9 football fields), and reduce the overall beam width to 90 feet at that distance. The HID Golight Stryker spotlights offer a much brighter, whiter color over the entire beam distance, since the arc lamp burns gas at a 6000 Kelvin color, while the stock 65 watt halogen bulb produces a "yellow/orange" beam at distance. solidified the HID Golight upgrade in September and is now expanding the range of packages to include more features and mounts. "We offer a wide range of HID fixed mount lights and we have been inundated with customer demand to integrate the power of HID into the Golight," said Rob Bresnahan, President of "We responded with a beam length that is 3 times longer and brighter. In addition we improved the range of the wireless remote controllers to a distance of 290 feet. We actually used the same technology that NASCAR uses in maintaining communication between pit crews and drivers.    

"Many operators in the military, utility and construction segments want versatility in their mounting options," continued Bresnahan. "So we take the surface mount HID Golight Styrker and make it magnetic mount, with a 16 foot cord and cigarette plug. In addition to a wide range of adjustable stanchion and riser mounts sold as accessories, we now integrate the Perko pole mount with red and green running lights with the Golight HID spotlights. The US Coast Guard and the Wildlife Commissions use this type of light when patrolling waterways at night. Most boats have a Perko socket installed at the factory. The Perko pole mounted HID Golight is situated in an established Perko socket and the running lights are automatically activated, while the operator controls the position of the spotlight. Since the Golight HID spotlight is independently controlled, the operator chooses when to turn the light on. While this mount is popular with boaters, a lot of oilfield and construction operators use it as well. So we actually include a Perko socket with the GL-9100 series, so that other types of vehicles can use this feature as well. Often times, vehicles and heavy equipment are left unprotected, so operators want either magnetic, stanchion or pole mount lights that are removable at the end of the work day. They can secure the lights in the tool box."

These HID Golight remote control spotlights round out a range of remote controlled lighting solutions, including LEDLB series of remote controlled LED emitter lights and the RCL360 series are ultra hardened HID remote controlled lights for mining and other high vibration environments. The PTB-1 is an independent, ultra heavy duty pan tilt base that is used for mounting multiple HID lights and LED emitter lights for military applications. Like LED lights, the HID lamps have long life and no filament to break under vibration, so they are popular in situations where operators need vast amounts of white, bright light with little or no maintenance. Combined, with an ability to position the light from the cab or jobsite remotely, makes the entire effective for operators who need to be as productive at night as they are during the day.
