The LEDP3W-6 Low Profile High Intensity LED Light Bar from Larson Electronics provides high power illumination in a compact and durable design.

The LED light bar measures 9 inches long by 2 inches high and produces 1,368 lumens of bright white light. The waterproof package makes it well suited to farm use, such as mounting to trucks or tractors for additional visibility.

Robert Bresnahan of Larson Electronics says that the light bar was designed to withstand rugged applications such as marine boating and military use.

“The compact design and low amp draw make this LED light bar an exceptional choice for any application that requires lighting that will hold up to abuse without failure.”

The LED light bar uses only 18 watts at 1.5 amps of current draw on a 12 volt electrical system.

The heavy duty fixture assembly is constructed of extruded aluminum with an unbreakable polycarbonate lens. The assembly is IP68 rated waterproof to three meters of submersion.

According to the company, internal LED drivers actively monitor voltage and heat levels to assure the highest output and longevity possible while also allowing the light bars to operate with any voltage from 9 to 32 volts DC.

These internal controllers also allow the connection of dimmers or pulse controllers to produce reduced output or a strobing or flashing effect if desired.

The LED assembly consists of six CREE XLamp XR-E three watt LEDs producing 228 lumens each paired with high purity optics to produce a 10 degree spot beam for long reach.

Also available are 40 degree beam versions which produce a much wider and shorter spread of light for applications where floodlighting is preferred.

Mounting is provided by included sliding aluminum mounting blocks with vibration absorbing rubber bushings and stainless steel hardware for easy installation using existing mounting holes.  FG
