As an example of how our LED lights look with out power applied, please see the below images:
As seen above, each of our lights have the standard E-27 thread of standard house hold lighting fixtures. Below, you can see an example of the available temperature ranges for the lights, that influences the colour of the light.
Starting in the fall of 2011, AGO started testing of a number of LED lights to determine the best ones to suit our requirements for lighting on our test boats. The first system was a 300 x 300mm, 32 volt DC. 17 watt light panel powered by a small CT 12 volt 80 watt plug in inverter. We were very impressed with light output and the low power consumption. Please see the following U tube video.
We have since installed this light in our shop to assist in lighting around our metal sheer and found it very helpful. In this case it is plugged into the 115 VAC power outlet.
In order to make the lights friendlier for marine use, we found a manufacture that would produce the LED lights so that they could be powered directly from 12 volts DC. Preliminary testing has proven extremely successful with a number of clients that after seeing the lights in operation on our boats have purchased several different versions of the lights for their own use. The 300 x 300 mm panel lights seem to have more light than what most wanted for their boats and have opted for the 6” and 4” size LED lights. See a 7 watt 6” LED light installed in our 20 foot sailboat. All power is supplied by solar panels charging the boats house battery. There are a number of colours available from warm white 3000 nm up to 9000 nm wavelength.

We have also been testing out MR16 equivalent LED replacements as well as a number of E27 (Edison ) style screw in bulbs. This unit is used as a spotlight for working on our large lathe.
As of October 2012, we have now tested many different powers and formats of the E27 version of LED light designed for standard North Amaerican light fixturws. They range in power levels from 3 watts up to 18 watts, in a rgange of colours and some with built in variable colour selection and output power levels. We are very pleased with 5, 6, 7, 10 and 12 watt units for home use.
This is a warm white 3 watt LED E27 bulb used in a yellow and brown hallway. It gives good light for this application but would not be the best for reading with.
Here we have 2 of 6 watt Led lights and a 5 Watt Led light, daylight white 7000 nm installed in a fan. This give good lighting for reading and working on the computer.
In this kitchen fan, we have 1 of 10 watt 7000 nm Led bulb on the left along with 2 of 23 watt 7000 nm CFL units on the right. The light output seems aproximatly the same.
This is a 12 watt warm white 3000 nm Led bulb with off white walls and paneling. This replaced a 23 watt CFL light and gives about the same amount of light off.
This is a 10 watt 7000 nm LED bulb in use by a group of embrodiers and they are very please with the colour match that they are getting and with the amount of light making it very easy to see the fine threads.
We have reacently devloped a lower cost, sub-sea shallow water light, with a highly diffused 7 watt, 12 VDC subsea LED light housed in delrin or UHMW. The light has a working depth of 50 meters with a 3/4” thick polycarbonate lens and 100 meters working depth with a 1 1/4” thick lens. The unit can be fitted with plastic LSG-2-BCL or brass MCBH subsea connectors. There are large format plastic holding clamps or a set of 1/4-20 rear mounting bolt holes. (see photo) The lights come in a range of light temperatures, 3,000, 4,500, 7,000 or 9,000 K. (see colour chart) Size: 4.65” diameter x 2.65” thick with 3/4” thick lens. Connector not included in overall height. Power: 600 ma @ 12 VDC nominal Colour temperature: 3,000, 4,500, 7,000 or 9,000 K. (see colour chart)
