So, I have been working hard at trying to develop the ultimate LED light bar. This is what I have come up with.
Solid billet 6061-t6 aluminum machined in house. ( Production units will be anodized black.)
6 Cree X-ML LED's LT5 5000k.
5100 LUMEN output. ( Cree's specs on the emitters themselves.)
Thermal protection 80C 165F ( yes it will run that hot on high with no airflow. All components will run greater than 100C without failure.)
Reverse Polarity protection.
9-24 Volt input.
Abrasion resistant polycarbonate lens with a Viton oring seal.
Simple three wire hookup. You can directly hook the power and ground to the battery and run a single small wire to a momentary switch to ground to select modes.
low,medium, high modes. Hidden strobe modes.( hold button down for 1 second when light is off.) Hold button down for 1 second at any time to turn light off.
I may end up offering custom programming for a small fee. Up to 16 modes possible.
Manufactured in house. Electronics are also MADE IN THE USA.
Wiring and housing entry are temporary till I come up with a cleaner approach.
I already found out I need to double the amount of screws holding the cover on. The viton oring pushes out the cover between the light holes. This will allow me to run the wires into the side.
