Motion29’s New Patlite Offering Is a Welcome Sight for Sore Eyes

Launched by Motion29 this month, the new CLK is already becoming popular with the food, pharmaceutical, chemical and manufacturing industries, due to its tough aluminium or stainless steel body which resists water and oil or chemicals. It’s not often you get a model with a 2,100lx centre illumination which resists water and chemicals/oils but Motion29’s new CLK LED from Patlite ticks all the boxes.

Features:
• Impervious to Water, Oil, and Chemicals
• Includes PATLITE's own 'Micro-array Lens" design to even out light distribution
• Available in three lengths of 200mm, 300mm and 600mm
• Three different Body and Lens Material combinations available
• Uses the popular M12 Quick Disconnect
• Can connect in series with Daisy Links (Using M12 Connectors)

In creating the CLK, Patlite has made use of ‘micro-array lens’ technology – designed to even out light refraction and cut out the ‘yellow ring’ effect which can be irritating and distracting at best.  Conventional magnification lenses can cause a ‘blinding light’ effect but the new CLK design confirms to the Photobiological Safety of Lamps and Lamp Systems means that no immediate retina damage is done.

With a one-touch installation system as standard, the CLK is also available with an optional angle adjustment bracket and surface-mounting bracket for speedy and easy set up.

Super slim with a side body angle designed to prevent dirt accumulation and water/oil pooling, the CLK is ideal for working environments where standard equipment just doesn’t cut it.  The LED lens has a simple flat-surface to ensure optimum lighting and to facilitate regular wipe-downs.

The Patlite CLK is available now from www.motion29.com.
