ARIES Automotive Releases New Product Line of LED Bars and Lights

Thu Feb 16, 2017

148726557529793.jpgARIES Automotive has introduced an all-new product line of LED light bars and LED work lights.

Six new lights, ranging from 2-inch work lights up to 50-inch light bars, feature grade A LED chips, waterproof construction, a 50,000-hour lifespan and a pedigree of thorough testing and certifications.

ARIES offers a number of unique products that are equipped with LED light mounts, but for 2017, the company is offering the high-quality LED lights to complement these products. Our approach in bringing aboard these new lights, as always, was the pursuit of innovation backed with quality. As such, ARIES sought out some of the best LED technology in the industry.

Each ARIES light boasts grade A LED chips from Cree, a leader in LED technology. The chips are set into a high-efficiency reflector to offer an impressive 96 percent efficiency, and they are protected within a waterproof aluminum housing and crack-resistant lexan lens. The housing also features an IP68-standard breather, keeping moisture and air from getting inside and damaging the LEDs.

To ensure optimum performance and maximum lifespan, ARIES LED lights undergo strenuous testing. The list of tests includes a UV test, extreme temperature test, vibration test, dust test, salt test and altitude test. They are also CE-certified and RoHS-certified. With their rugged construction and intensive testing, each light has an average lifespan of 50,000+ hours, which would calculate to five years of continuous use.

The new line of LED lights provides ARIES customers with a complete product solution. Six different SKUs have been introduced.
