KEMP, Texas, April 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Larson Electronics has announced the addition of an 800 lumen LED work light that offers a powerful and food safe alternative to traditional incandescent and fluorescent work lights. The FTL-3-LED-50-HD 8 Watt LED Drop Light is an innovative LED equipped work light that provides high output and enhanced durability surpassing that of traditional work lights in a versatile, wet area suitable, and food safe design built to withstand the demanding conditions found in industrial and commercial operations.


The Larson Electronics FTL-3-LED-50-HD 8 watt LED drop light is a powerful and durable alternative to traditional fluorescent and incandescent work lights that provides versatile operation in a food safe and wet area suitable design. Featuring weather and water resistant construction, heavy duty aluminum housing, rubberized handle and end cap, and a powerful LED tube lamp, this LED drop light is ideal for demanding work applications where durability as well as powerful output is needed. The housing on this LED light is constructed of aluminum for light weight yet durable operation. The LED lamp assembly is fitted with one of Larson Electronics' LEDT24-8-T8 series, allowing this light to produce 800 lumens of high quality light output while also providing the impact and vibration resistance fluorescent and incandescent lamps cannot match. The LED lamp is protected by a heavy duty non-glass tube lens that has been lightly frosted for even light distribution, and helps this lamp achieve food safe approval for use in the food services industry. The end cap and handle on thisLED work light feature rubberized construction, adding further resistance to damage from impacts as well as providing a secure gripping surface for managing the light during use in wet conditions.  A set of included mounting hooks allow operators to also hang the light overhead or from railings to allow easier hands free operation. Larson Electronics has also added an innovative cord connection that utilizes a 90 degree elbow and steel cord gripping bracket to allow the light to be stood on end without damaging the cord as is typical with other lights utilizing a straight through cord connection. The FTL-3-LED-50-HD comes with 50 feet of cord fitted with a standard straight blade plug to provide ample length for movement around the work area and easy connection to standard wall outlets. This drop light operates on standard universal voltage ranging from 100 to 277VAC including 110 and 120 VAC and is ideal for use in industrial, commercial, professional and utilities industries where reliable yet convenient and powerful illumination is needed to ensure efficient and safe performance of work operations.

"The FTL-3-LED-50-HD led trouble light is designed specifically for operators to lean the light upright against the wall," said Rob Bresnahan with  "Generally, when you lean a trouble light on its base, you pinch the cord, which ultimately becomes the failure point for the light. We machine a metal insert for our base and put a rigid elbow at the cord handle connection, so when the light is leaned up against a wall, there is no damage to the cord."
