COMMERCIAL TRAWLER LIGHTING, DOCK, AND DECK LIGHTING
Crabber Lights (Forward Spots)
Ardent LED Solutions supplies replacement lighting to the commercial fishing fleet in Alaska’s Bristol Bay and Bering Sea. Using LED lighting to replace high pressure sodium and metal halide lights is very popular with boats of all size.
When used as a replacement for “crabbing lights” (HPS spots for forward running lights), captains find our IP65- and IP67-rated 200W 60/120 degree beam angle lighting to be vastly superior to the 1000W+ sodium lighting historically used for this purpose. LED light at 6000k cuts through the rain, fog, and snow offering clearer visibility for seeing crab pot buoys, channel markers, and potential floating hazards.
All of our LED lights offer 12/24, 32vdc or 100/277Vac. They are ballast-free, flicker-free, and offer instant maximum light at turn-on with no warm-up period. LED lights can be cycled off and on without issue or damage. These lights offer tremendous fuel savings, with the ability to run for long periods while at anchor directly off the 12/24v battery bank. LEDs also offer a healthy, natural daylight color spectrum—which shows the true color of items being illuminated—no more washed-out yellow field of view.
LED flood lighting of decks and working areas offers a bright, natural daylight color. A 4500–5500k light illumination allows viewing of the work area to be as if it were daylight. The true colors of bait, fish, lures, and sorted catch can be viewed in their natural color. These LED flood lights provide little to no shadowing while offering no yellow washout from the surrounding weather and environment. Better CRI (color rendering index) means better employee health and welfare.
Indoor Berth, Salon, and Engine Room Lighting
Offering 80% or more energy savings, LED tube lights and small spot light replacement bulbs offer improved light quality with little or no heat. Ardent LED Solutions replacement tube lights are true drop-in replacements for 2-foot, 3-foot, 4-foot, and 8-foot fluorescent tubes. There is no need to change the fixture; all that is needed is to remove or bypass the ballast. All dimensions and pin-out configurations are industry-standard to fluorescent.
