MADISON, Ind. — Rotary Lift has unveiled Tech Lights, its new series of LED shop lights. The lights offer options that can be adapted to meet a variety of service bay needs, according to the supplier.
Each light comes with mounting clips that are magnetic, so the lights can be set up in a variety of locations without drilling.
“Technicians can always use more light under the vehicles they work on, but fixed lights that are built into the vehicle lift itself are not as useful as something that can be repositioned,” said Ron Lainhart, Rotary Lift parts and service manager. “Our Tech Lights lamps’ magnetic mounting clips make it possible for technicians to attach the lamps to a lift’s columns, its arms, a tool cart or the vehicle itself. As a result, Tech Lights lamps are ideal for both close-up inspection work and general purpose lighting.”
Tech Lights shop lights are available in three kits.
The two-post lift kit, P/N FA5701, includes two 32-inch line light units, each embedded with 96 LEDs and fitted with two magnetic mounts. The kit’s power cable is more than 25 feet long to ensure it covers the distance between the lift and an outlet. From the power supply box, each light is further fitted with a coiled cord that offers more than 15 feet of range for moving the light to different locations. The light housing is a slim 1-inch diameter so it can illuminate compact work areas. The two-post lift kit is ideal for two-post, heavy-duty in-ground and mobile column lifts.
The four-post lift kit, P/N FA5700, includes four 48-inch long, 1-inch diameter light units and eight magnetic mounts. All four lights are controlled from a single switch, designed for quick and easy setup, according to the company.
For maximum versatility, Rotary Lift offers the hand-held single Tech Light shop light, P/N FA5702, that can be used with any type of vehicle lift, company officials said. The battery-powered single Tech Light shop light features a light wand with a magnetic hook for hanging on the vehicle or lift. An independently controlled spotlight projects out of the top of the wand, giving users a focused beam for up-close inspections. The light wand can operate for up to three hours and the spotlight can shine for up to six hours on a full charge, providing enough light to complete a variety of jobs.
The lights are built to withstand daily use in a vehicle repair setting, according to Rotary Lift. Since all mounts are magnetic, they offer a universal fit for any lift or piece of equipment in the shop.
