Rite-Hite, Milwaukee, introduced a new LED dock light design called the Rite-Lite Flex Neck LED Dock Light.
This new light incorporates Flex Neck Technology, which offers enhanced flexibility and adjustability when lighting a trailer or container at the loading dock. The new Rite-Lite Flex Neck LED Dock Light features a multi-articulating arm made from molded nylon links. The links offer multiple bend points for increased flexibility at the loading dock. The bend points can be easily modified in the field to address unique needs or obstructions that may be encountered at a dock opening. In addition, the links can be tightened, if necessary, to eliminate the sagging that often occurs with traditional metal snake arms.
There are four different settings with visual indicators to clearly identify the current level of lighting, allowing users to select the desired level of light output. In addition, an optional, auto-dimming feature senses when a forklift or person exits a trailer and automatically dims the light to reduce glare. Finally, the light incorporates a dimming feature that recognizes when the light has been on for more than 30 minutes with no activity in the trailer, and automatically resets the light to its lowest setting.
The light uses CREE LEDs that consume just 18 watts of energy while outputting 925 lumens. The light is rated for 175,200 hours of service life.
