The SPOT LED 003 gives a consistently high quality of illumination, with no stroboscopic effect and a high proportion of blue light that aids concentration and motivation. It is also extremely durable, with a service life in excess of 50,000 hours – equivalent to six years of continuous operation. Over the same period a typical halogen lamp with a service life of around 2,000 hours would need to be changed 25 times. In the industrial workplace, the right illumination can be a critical factor in safety, motivation quality and productivity. Providing the right lighting condition on machines and machine tools is particularly important, and indeed is a requirement of the EU Machinery Directive for lighting as set out in EN 1837. Waldmann’s new range of lighting systems built around the SPOT LED 003 lamp can provide the perfect lighting conditions for almost any application. The range includes movable arm-mounted, flexible head versions that can be either fixed to the machine are attached when required using magnetic base or screw clamp. The lighting head is safe to touch as it generates no heat, and can be adjusted to give the ideal illumination for on-machine tasks such as setting, inspection and maintenance. Fixed variants, including jointed head and integrated flush-mounted units, are ideal for use as OEM or retrofit lighting in metalworking machine tools. They withstand both constant flushing with coolants and damage from hot or sharp chips. And as they produce almost no heat, coolant does not burn onto the front lens of the light and reduce output. The units’ small size and rugged design mean that they can be mounted to give powerful illumination exactly where it is needed for safe and error-free working. Waldmann Lighting’s SPOT LED 003 lamps are available as spot lights, with a 10 degree beam angle, or as area flood lights with a 40o beam angle. Models are available with electronic plug in transformers to work from 100 to 240V, 50/60 Hz supplies or with intelligent circuitry for direct connection to AC or DC 24V supplies.
