Legacy Versatrax 100™ System with 601 Lights

Legacy Versatrax 100™ System with 601 Lights

It’s a new year… so out with the old and in with the new! In this case, the “old” is the halogen light bulbs found on all of our legacy Versatrax 150™ systems (101 lights), parallel Versatrax 100™ and MicroMag™ crawlers (601 lights).

Let’s face it - incandescent lighting (Halogen, Argon, etc.) is old technology. The bulbs burn out quickly, or get damaged easily; and they are simply not as efficient as the new LED lamps. We’ve already integrated LED lighting into our newer products, but for older systems and backward compatibility there is one big challenge: finding a dimmable 120VAC LED that fits into existing waterproof housings. After a little bit of research and a lot of experimentation, we are pleased to announce that we now have a direct LED replacement for the 50W and 20W halogen bulbs found in our older 101 and 601 model lights. They operate off of the same 120VAC adjustable light control – so no need for a new control system. Existing 101 light LEDs can be installed without modifications, but the 601 light LEDs require an upgrade kit that includes a few extra parts. To keep things simple both upgrades are easily performed in the field.
