Pelican™ Deploys Rugged, Night-Vision Friendly LED 9500 Shelter Lighting System

TORRANCE, CA – October 5, 2009 — Pelican Products has introduced the rugged, night-vision-friendly 9500 Shelter Lighting System (SLS) as part of their line of Advanced Area Lighting Systems.

Engineered for rapid deployment, the 9500 SLS is a series of three area lighting heads that sport 24 white and 12 red (night-vision-friendly) next generation LEDs (light emitting diodes). Designed to be controlled separately or linked together, the 9500 SLS allows the user to instantly switch between night-vision and normal modes. Each of the three heads can be powered by either a standard 100-240V socket or a 12-30 volt dc power source such as the batteries in Pelican’s Remote Area Lighting Systems.

With a beam spread of 210 degrees the system will easily illuminate small, medium and large GP military tents (2,000 lumens of clean diffused light in white mode or 400 lumens in red mode).

The 9500 SLS is built so tough, that it can be permanently secured to a shelter’s ridge pole, rolled up and transported with standard military-style tents. For easy manual transport the entire system is compact enough to fit inside the included Pelican 1550 Protector™ Case. Additionally, it comes with a universal 100-240V power supply, inline switch, fixing straps and a set of color coded industrial grade connecting cables.

The 9500 Shelter Lighting System has an MSRP of $3,749.95, and is backed by a Legendary Lifetime Guarantee of Excellence.
