The GAU-36-IPS-LED-RCMÂ from Larson Electronics is a low profile general area lighting solution that is UL 1598 compliant for use in wet locations. This powerful 36" long LED strip light produces 2,250 lumens, operates on 12-24 V AC/DC, and is suitable for a variety of applications.
The GAU-36-IPS-LED-RCMÂ is designed to provide a high output and ruggedly durable lighting solution. This low profile general area use LED strip light can be operated operated on 12-24 V AC/DC electrical current and includes 6 feet of connecting lead with flying leads. This light is constructed of powder coated extruded aluminum for excellent strength and durability and is rated IP65 for protection against exposure to low pressure water jets from all directions and sealed against dust penetration.
These units are configured in a 36" long strip or "bar" profile for installation in locations where wide dispersal and a low profile is preferred. Once installed, operators can rotate the light fixture side to side to position the light output as needed. The high output, cool running operation, and good color rendering properties of this light make it an ideal replacement for older, bulkier, and less reliable HID and halogen light fixtures.
Durability/Mounting:Â The GAU-36-IPS-LED-RCMÂ hazardous area LED light is constructed of extruded aluminum with a tough powder coat finish for high strength and durability. The housing is IP65 rated, providing ingress protection against dusts, and protection against low pressure jets of water from all directions, such as wash-down areas. This design is weatherproof, suitable for indoor or outdoor applications, and ideal for areas where wet, damp, or dusty conditions are commonly encountered.
The LEDs in this linear light are Cree LEDs that have been chosen for their high lumen per watt ratio and extreme long life. These Cree LEDs provide over 75 lumens per watt output and have a 70% lumen retention at 50,000 hours, giving them better efficiency and operational life than comparable LEDs. This LED light produces 2,250 lumens with a color temperature of 5000 K and a color rendering index of 75 which produces colors and details much more accurately than incandescent, halogen, or fluorescent light fixtures.
LED Benefits:Â Unlike gas burning and arc type lamps that have glass bulbs, LEDs have no filaments or fragile housings to break during operation and/or transportation. Instead of heating a small filament or using a combination of gases to produce light, light emitting diodes (LEDs) use semi-conductive materials that illuminate when electric current is applied, providing instant illumination with no warm up or cool down time before re-striking. Because there is no warm up period, this light can be cycled on and off with no reduction in lamp life.
LED lights run at significantly cooler temperatures than traditional metal halide and high pressure sodium lights and contain no harmful gases, vapors, or mercury, making them both safer and more energy efficient. No extra energy is wasted in cooling enclosed work areas due to external heat emissions from bulb type lights, and the operator risks associated with traditional lighting methods, such as accidental burns and exposure to hazardous substances contained in the glass bulbs, are eliminated. In addition, LEDs are also safer for the environment as they are 100% recyclable, which eliminates the need for costly special disposal services required with traditional gas burning and arc type lamps.
Mounting:Â This LED light is compatible with rear channel mounting applications. Flat and lock washers, 1/4"-20 nut and bolt are provided for seamless installation inside panels, cabinets and more.Â The entire assembly weighs 2.1 lbs and measures 36 inches in length, 2.68 inches wide and 1.69 inches deep, making it ideal for mounting in areas where space is limited and a low profile fixture is more readily installed.
Wiring/Power:Â This light operates on AC/DC voltages from 12-24 V AC/DC. Each strip light is equipped with 6 feet of 16/3 SOOW cable for making power connections.
Versatility:Â The GAU-36-IPS-LED-RCMÂ carries an IP65 water resistant rating ensuring protection against ingress from dusts, dirt, and protection against light water jets sprayed directly on the fixture. This light is ideal for indoor or outdoor applications and industrial operations with hazardous location classification where dusty or wet conditions are commonly encountered.
