Hella's new Thermo Pro range of work lights feature an innovative thermally conductive plastic technology that is weather, corrosion and water resistant.

According to Hella, the new Thermo Pro range is fully corrosion-resistant which will allow it to work in most weather conditions and is suitable for use in the agricultural and construction industry.

Hella says the new plastic housings offers the same conductivity as aluminium which means the LEDs can work with a full power supply even if the ambient temperature is high. The back of the housing is ribbed to allow outward heat dissipation.

If temperatures in the work light rise however, thermal sensors will reduce the input current so the LEDs can continue to work within the optimum range of temperatures.

In addition to conduction and heat resistance tests, the new plastic technology has also undergone pendulum impact, ball drop and vibration testings for durability as well as an immersion and high-pressure cleaning tests. Hence, Hella says the new lights meet protection class IP6 K9K/IP6 K8 standards and are completely water and dust tight.

Hella claims the Thermo Pro range work lights can achieve a service life of 60,000 hours.

Another advantage of the Thermo Pro series, Hella adds, is its lighter weight hence its better resistance to vibration. Heavier lights tend to shift position and tilt downwards when strong vibration occurs and a as a result, operators often need to stop the task at hand to readjust the lights and screw them tightly in place, leading to downtime.

With the new Hella work light range, which the company claims is 60 per cent lighter compared to generic aluminium work lights, operators need not readjust the position of the lights hence leading to higher work productivity.

The first model in the Thermo Pro series, the Q90 LED has four high-power LEDs providing light output of 1200 lumens at a power consumption of 25 watts. A specially developed multi-faceted reflector distributes the light so that a homogenous illumination of the work area is guaranteed.

It won the Green Directory Award 2014 at international automotive fair Automechanika in Frankfurt earlier this year for its sustainable and resource-saving properties.

Hella adds the Q90 LED work light comes with different lenses so it is capable of both close and long-range illumination.
