Golight, makers of pan-and-tilt remote-controlled lighting, have introduced a “new and improved” version of its Stryker ST Series of remote-control LED and halogen searchlights.
These new lights are easier to operate and offer the ability to pan and tilt simultaneously. The system also comes with a unit selector that enables a user to operate two Stryker STs individually or in synchronization, using a single remote-control transmitter.
The new design also virtually eliminates remote-control crosstalk when multiple remote-control lamps are being used in close proximity by operating at 2.4 GHz.
Pairing the new remote-control transmitter with a Stryker ST is done by pressing holding two buttons, and the use of dipswitches has been eliminated, the company says. Once a controller is paired with a lamp or lamps, that same controller can replicate its pairing, allowing multiple controllers to be uniformly paired and enabling several users to share control of an individual lamp or other paired lamps.
A one-button home-position function is another new feature on the Stryker ST Series. Unlike some remote-control lamps that automatically return to their home position when turned off, the Stryker ST maintains its existing position when powered off, allowing users to stop and start activities without the need to reorient their light source each time. The feature also allows users to point the lamps to the rear when not in use, as a method of protecting their lenses from harm.
The Stryker ST comes standard with 12-volt electrical system compatibility and is available with 24-volt compatibility. The lamps come with either LED or halogen light sources. The LED model features tough polycarbonate plano-convex (P-Vex) lens technology. The halogen version comes with Golight’s PentaBeam reflector design and a tempered glass lens. Both LED and halogen versions optimally focus their beam patterns at an 8-degree angle. The low-maintenance lamps come with a high-impact, UV ray-resistant and saltwater-resistant housing suitable for land and marine applications.
The LED Stryker ST lamp employs 10 high-flux LEDs, producing an industry-leading 410,000-candela beam projecting to a maximum distance of 4,200 feet. The halogen Stryker ST lamp produces a 200,000-candela beam projecting to a maximum distance of 2,933 feet.
The Stryker ST is available in a permanent-mount model with a stainless-steel mounting bracket and a portable model with amagnetic base. There is also a magnetic base adapter kit that allows users to install a Stryker STwith a magnetic base to a non-magnetic surface, such as aluminum. An optional remote-control holster is also available.
Both LED and halogen lamps come with a five-year unlimited warranty.
