Maxxeon Achieves Performance Breakthrough with New LED Lighting Tool

October 01, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Maxxeon announced today that the company has achieved a light output in excess of 90 lumens for the new WorkStar 440 inspection light, a figure that is claimed to set a new standard in the portable work light market. Roger Britt, CTO of Maxxeon explains,"Through the use of state-of-the-art LEDs and our electronic current control system, the WorkStar™ 440 produces an exceptional amount of light - more light than even bulky LED work lights, while maintaining a compact configuration suitable to the use of an inspection light in confined areas. The WorkStar™ 440 raises the bar by supplying the technician with up to 20 times the amount of light that is available from previous tools".

Mr. Britt continues,"The exceptional light output of this tool makes it far easier to troubleshoot and inspect in critical areas such as aircraft maintenance. Quality Assurance personnel will especially appreciate the brightness and versatility of this light."

The innovative lighting tool features a highly flexible 12 inch gooseneck that allows the user to direct the light exactly where it is needed, thereby solving illumination problems common to all maintenance, repair, and quality control technicians. The compact, tapered lighting head has been designed to prevent snagging when removing it from confined spaces. The tool is designed to perform reliably for tradesmen for daily use.

The WorkStar™ 440 is a cordless light with electronic current control that maximizes efficiency and allows it to runs for approximately 2 hours on two AA batteries. Body construction is aluminum and the tool is light in weight at less than 6 ounces (160 grams). The light weight, and ergonomic design features a comfortable grip and good balance to minimizes operator fatigue.

The WorkStar™ 440 is backed by Maxxeon's one year warranty. Suggested retail price is $69.95. For more information, please visit .
