Rigid Industries gets rough with testing standards, Osram LEDs provide impressive results

Rigid Industries, a leader in forward projecting LED lighting, partnered with Osram Opto Semiconductors to provide tough, extreme tested products for its new off-road night vision lighting series – the E- and SR-series. These new Rigid infrared (IR) night vision lights complement the full line of Rigid’s visible LED off-road lights. Both versions feature Osram’s high quality, high reliability, infrared LEDs (IRED) and visible LEDs.

unnamed 10 220x184 Osram LEDs put to extreme testing in new off road lighting applicationsThe new night vision systems from Rigid feature IR Oslon Black LEDs, supplied by Osram Opto Semiconductors because they are similarly tough with superior reliability. IR Oslon Black delivers IR illumination for night vision operation and, with more than 1W at 1A total optical flux,  it is the most powerful single chip, high power IRED available today.

Before the new products launched, Rigid engineers conducted a series of deliberately intense stress tests to prove that the lights can endure the most extreme real-world off-road conditions. To simulate what can happen when you mix hard-core off-road driving with intense dirt trails and harsh environmental elements, Rigid pushes its products to the breaking point to see how they perform through a series of abusive tests that include using hammers and saws. This type of testing ensures Rigid’s products far exceed the performance needed for a tough and reliable off-road lighting application. Read More→

RockCrawler RZR Videos

September 21, 2010

Had the opportunity this past weekend to put the RockCrawler RZR thru it’s higher speed paces.  A friend has 500 acres with a private lake in northern Wisconsin, and parts of the property includes trails for their ATV’s.  We made a few hot lap runs around the 1.7 mile lake loop.

The first video with shot with my buddy Goebs leading on his Honda 4-stroke…chasing the ATV added a bit of perspective to the video, and he was nice enough to keep his speeds down and mostly stay in frame.  Time on this lap was 3:25 and top speed was in the 45 mph range (forgot to reset the GPS…oops)

Video two is the same loop done in reverse, and at night.  Time was not taken on this one, but top speed per the GPS was 41mph.  Notice that around 0:33 in the video, I turned on the 30″ Rigid Industries LED light…major improvement over the dim stockers!

Rigid Industries 30″ LED Light Bar

Monday, July 26th, 2010

Lighting on any rig is important, for safety and visibility.  Seeing the trail ahead when rock crawling or watching the trail ahead when desert running requires a product that will withstand a great deal of abuse and offer both spot and flood capabilities.   The 30″ Rigid “E” Series Light Bar met all of these requirements…shockproof, combination spot/flood and low power draw.  By using the ATR Dash Brace, the Rigid LED mounts safely below the roofline and away from the front bumper, minimizing glare and potential damage….when you choose a light of this quality, you want it protected!
