Permanent Mount LED Deck Light

Lighting specialist, Larson Electronics, has release a new 30 watt LED decklight equipped with a 360° spindle, and vertical tilt, allowing complete rotation while permanently mounted.

The DL-APB-LED-30W permanent mount LED decklight provides a high powered solution in applications where a low voltage light is preferred. The 30 watt light emitter in this unit is highly resistant to damage from shocks and vibration, and up to 80% more efficient than incandescent lights. This LED assembly has an average lifespan rating of 50,000 hours and draws only 2.5 amps on a 12 volt DC electrical system. Producing 2,700 lumens of intense light output, the standard unit is designed to illuminate out to 60', and is available in a spot beam configuration producing a beam 600' long by 100' wide.

This LED decklight can be permanently mounted to any flat surface using four small screws and a rubber gasket. Twenty-four inches of wiring is provided for connection to a 12 volt DC power source. "The LED light emitter is housed within a rugged weatherproof housing, and can withstand vibrations and impacts that comparable incandescent lights cannot," said Rob Bresnahan, with

The high-powered LED light is ideal for operators seeking an adjustable light for marine application, and has a retail price of $286.00.

Redesigned Sensors Enhance Boating Integration And Convenience

Lowrance®, a world-leader in boating electronics since 1957, has released a redesigned lineup of easy-to-install, intelligent sensors to monitor an array of vital engine and boating functions. Compatible with NMEA 2000® networks, the new products include the Lowrance Fluid Level Sensor, Fuel Data Manager, and Fuel Flow, Pressure, Paddlewheel Speed, and Temperature Sensors, all compatible with HDS Gen3 and Gen2 Touch Multifunction Displays.

• Fuel Data Manager and Fuel Flow Sensors feed data to compatible touch displays for effective management of onboard fuel levels.

• Fuel Data Manager stores fuel-use data from engines or engine interfaces connected to the network, supporting data from up to three engines.

• Fuel Flow Sensors track gasoline flow and calculate fuel use, trip fuel use, as well as seasonal fuel use. Combined with a GPS speed source or the transom-mounted Paddlewheel Speed Sensor, boaters can use the Fuel Flow Sensor to calculate fuel economy to optimize time spent on the water.

• Fluid Level Sensors monitor tank levels and can be configured for any liquid.

• Pressure Sensors are pre-configured for engine water pressure, but may be set for engine boost pressure, engine oil pressure, or transmission oil pressure.

• Temperature Sensors (standard and thru-hull models) are calibrated for water temperature, but can also be used to monitor bait well, engine room, refrigeration, heating and other systems temperature.

Available from authorized Lowrance dealers worldwide, the Fluid Level Sensor, Fuel Data Manager, Pressure Sensor, Paddlewheel Speed Sensor, Temperature Sensor and Thru-hull Temperature Sensors are priced at $99.00. The Fuel Flow Sensor is priced at $199.00.
