L.J. Star Inc. has introduced the LumiStar3000™, a 60mm LED sight-glass light that is four times brighter than a typical sight-glass light, improving visibility of critical processes.

The new luminaire, which is capable of outputting 3000 lumens at full brightness, produces four times the light output of a standard 100W halogen luminaire with less energy and heat. It offers unprecedented, penetrating illumination of vessels used in pharmaceutical, chemical and food processing, L.J. Star says.

This light uses a rare type of LED array, computerized control and an unusual power approach in order to attain exceptional light output and reliability. Compared to traditional halogen lights, LED lights transfer far less heat to a process and offer up to 50 times longer life, making them ideal for heat sensitive processes and for reducing labor costs. What’s more, because LEDs lack the fragile filaments found in incandescent lights, they resist impact and vibration.
