May 3, 2010 - PRLog -- In June 2009, K&H Industries, Inc. was approached by PG&E to design a dual-lamphead remote controlled spotlight with high light output and low amperage draw. This design project was partially funded by the US Recovery Act with the purpose of creating a prototype ‘green’ utility maintenance vehicle. The dual-lamphead spotlight was one of many new green technologies to be incorporated into the vehicle.

At the time, K&H Industries had experimented with LED technology but hadn’t brought any final product offering to market. “The advantage of LED is the intense light output while keeping the amperage draw low. The new LED Luxeon® K2 LEDs offer many benefits to customers compared to incandescent bulbs including lamphead durability that results in increased bulb life expectancy and longevity of over 50,000 run-time hours,” explains John Herc, K&H Industries’ Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

“We completed the prototype within 35 days of the initial request,” commented Herc. The final testing phase was completed in December 2009. Since then PG&E has outfitted a portion of their fleet with the LED StarBeam. The LED StarBeam is available for order through K&H Industries, Altec Industries, and Terex Corporation.

LED StarBeam Specifications:
Model #SB-101T-LT432
The LED Luxeon® K2 lampheads used for the new StarBeam remote control spotlight features durable aluminum housing with protective polycarbonate lens. It contains ten 3-watt Luxeon® K2 LEDs and is available in either 12v or 24v. Bright lumen output tops 3,000 lumens with an under six-amperage draw.

StarBeam Remote Control Spotlight by K&H Industries is the only dual-head remote control spotlight on the market. Its rugged design features twin rotating lampheads with 330° control in both the horizontal and vertical axes. The lampheads and motor housing are weatherproof, coupled with brushless connections and lubrication free drive system provide years of dependable service in the most extreme weather conditions, including snow, ice, and rain.

K&H Industries, Inc. celebrates its 50th year in 2010 of providing reliable and rugged lighting and power products to the utility industry. K&H’s StarBeam and NightRay remote controlled spotlights are proudly made in the USA.
