Lumitec: Outshining the Competition On Both Land and Sea

Some of the hardest jobs in the world’s most oppressive environments require carefully engineered tools – tools that won’t fail or underperform when the going gets tough. Lumitec is a market leading manufacturer of LED solutions for the world’s most rugged machines and vehicles. From a small startup to a leading international LED lighting manufacturer, Lumitec is committed to expanding and innovating LED solutions to meet a growing demand across diverse sectors on both land and sea.

Lumitec is rapidly expanding, and has recently acquired a new heavy equipment customer with unique terrestrial lighting challenges. Peterson Corp. has been an Oregon corporation since 1981. The company began as Wilbur Peterson & Sons, a heavy construction company. Peterson expanded into manufacturing to develop equipment to suit their land-clearing and construction needs. The Model DD 4800, a portable Delimber-Debarker, was designed first. The Model DDC 5000, a portable Delimber-Debarker-Chipper, was developed next, followed by other portable equipment for the paper pulp industry. These machines are used in massive jobs from forestry to hurricane cleanup. Due to the large nature of these machines and job types, extreme vibrations and wet environments are common.

Lumitec has engineered an elite series of scene/flood lights with performance surpassing all other lights in their class. Engineered to perform exceptionally well under the harshest conditions, and eclipsing the output of traditional halogens, the General Area Location (GAI) light, featuring a IP67-compliant body, repels water to reduce corrosive effects on critical components. Constructed with high-quality cast metal and aluminum housings, Lumitec’s lighting solutions are designed to withstand the world’s toughest conditions. They are loaded with features, including multiple color output, dimming, and flashing options for high visibility in emergency situations and heavy weather conditions. Lumitec scene/flood lights consistently outperform and outlast the competition.

Peterson needed lights that could handle high vibration, high usage, and wet/damp environments. Nothing on the market is more durable and reliable than Lumitec’s lightweight CapriLT LED Flood Lights. These lights were specially chosen for use on two product lines, the 4710D Grinder, and 3310 Drum Chipper, due to their compact size and exceptional performance. Peterson was so impressed with the durability of Lumitec’s products that they will now be using them on all new product lines. Peterson will also be using Lumitec’s cab down lights in the interior of their truck cabs. Along with over 200+ marine OEMs, Peterson made the commitment to use the world’s most dependable and durable LED systems.

In the harshest conditions, Lumitec lights are at their best. Originally engineered for use on marine vessels in the roughest of seas, Lumitec’s driving lights are designed to perform in the harshest weather. Functional, durable and incorporating the most advanced technology, they work at lower operating temperatures while consuming less power.
