The Q-Series is designed and built to withstand the harshest working environments imaginable. Constructed of the toughest and most durable materials available, including a double-pass TIG-welded stainless steel bracket with vibration isolator, the Q-Series provides reliable, powerful LED light and is tough enough to withstand mining, agriculture, construction, and the oil and gas industries. The rugged construction also makes it well suited to extreme environments. If the application is severe, the Q-Series is the ultimate lighting solution.
Available with your choice of patented optics, the Q-Series features a host of beam options, including Spot, Flood, Driving, Hyperspot, Diffused, and multiple different optic combinations.
The next comparison is between amber LED vs. amber lens. Using the RIGID D-series as an example, the D-Series with amber LEDs has approximately half of the peak intensity that the D-series with the amber lens has: LEDs Lenses 16,218cd vs. 34,340cd We went with the change in lens color over LED because of the significant difference in peak intensity between LEDs and the lens. The drop in light output from the clear lens to the colored lens occurs when that white light is converted from blue to another color. There is a loss of energy that happens in that process. Even with that loss of energy, we end up with a higher output than what is possible with an amber LED. The Amber PRO Edition also provides a more cohesive aesthetic among the OEM light colors.
