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 American light fixtures. They range in power levels from 3 watts up to 18 watts, in a range of colours and some with built in variable colour selection and output power levels. We are very pleased with 5, 6, and 7 watt units for home use. We have found that E27 style LED bulbs at this time are not reliable and have had a 100% failure rate. This has lead to our developing methods to fix the bulbs with limited success.

The panel lights have proven much better with no failures. We have tested 30 watts at 4500K and 6000K for over 2 years. We are very pleased with this series of panel light and offer them from stock at $135CDN/ea.

Bellow are two shots of a 72 watt LED panel light 1200×600 mm (approximately 4 ft. x 2 ft.). It is being used to light the work area over a milling machine. The illumination was better than expected and has the side benefit of no shadows. We have since tested a 60 watt panel at 5500K, we are very pleased with this light and offer it for sale at $365CDN/ea.

E-27 light problems developed after a few months of use, see bellow how to find and fix issues.

Using a ohm meter, you can test the individual elements and replace the bad ones.  We have found that 90% of the problems is due to over heating leading to element failure. Other issues include fuses blowing and voltage converter board failures again due to much heat.

We have recently developed a lower cost, sub-sea shallow water light, with a highly diffused 7 watt, 12 VDC subsea LED light housed in Delran 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)
