Our Long Range LED Light is independently tested and certified to local and international standards.
The x-Glo long range LED light commonly using in tunnelling or where there is limited access to power due to the longer runs lengths between power supplies. Mineglow is able to provide the longest continuous long distance LED lighting to the market due to the extra thick copper backbone.

Benefits of our Long Range LED Light for Mining
1. Long Range LED Light Lifespan:
Easily the most significant advantage of long distance LED light when compared to traditional lighting solutions is the long lifespan. The average LED lasts 50,000 operating hours to 100,000 operating hours or more. That is 2-4 times as long as most fluorescent, metal halide, and even sodium vapor lights. It is more than 40 times as long as the average incandescent bulb.
2. LED Energy Efficiency:
Long range LED lights generally consume very low amounts of power. The statistics to look for when comparing the energy efficiency of different lighting solutions called by one of two terms: luminous efficacy or useful lumens. These two items essentially describe the amount of light emitted per unit of power (watts) consumed by the bulb. In our experience most LED lighting retrofit projects result in a 60-75% improvement in the overall energy efficiency of the facility’s lighting.
3. Improved Safety with LEDs:
Safety is perhaps the most often overlooked advantage when it comes to long range LED lighting. The number one hazard when it comes to lighting is the emission of heat. LEDs emit almost no forward heat while traditional bulbs like incandescent convert more than 90% of the total energy used to power them directly into heat. That means only 10% of the energy powering incandescent lights is actually used for light (which also makes them extremely inefficient compared to LEDs). Additionally, because LEDs consume less power they can operate effectively on low-voltage electrical systems. These are generally much safer in the event that something goes wrong.
4. Long Distance LED Lights are Physically Small:
The actual LED device is extremely small. Small power devices can be less than a tenth of a single mm2 while larger power devices can still be as small as a mm2. Their small size makes LEDs incredibly adaptable to an infinite number of lighting applications. Different uses for LEDs include a wide spectrum from their roots in circuit board lighting and traffic signals to modern mood lighting, residential, and commercial property applications, and even major stadium lighting.
5. LEDs Have Great Color Rendering Index (CRI):
CRI is a measurement of a light’s ability to reveal the actual color of objects as compared to an ideal light source (natural light). High CRI is generally a desirable characteristic (although of course, it depends on the required application). Long distance LED light generally has very high (good) ratings when it comes to CRI.
6. Long Range LED Light Generate Directional Emissions:
LED technology emits light for only 180 degrees. Every other type of light emits light 360 degrees around the source. 360 degree emissions necessitate accessory devices to reflect and/or redirect the light. This drives up the costs for the system in general and inevitably results in losses meaning that the device is necessarily less efficient than it otherwise would be. Consider a light that emits light into the ceiling – that is your standard bulb. The problem is that you’re trying to illuminate the room, not the ceiling. LEDs solve this problem completely and give the savings back in terms of the system’s overall energy efficiency.
7. LEDs Have Tremendous Design Flexibility:
Because long range LED light is so small they can used in virtually any application you can think of. They can be combined in bunches for a traditional bulb, used in isolation as a small device light, or strung out in sequence in a linear fashion.
8. LEDs are Solid State Lights (SSLs):
LEDs are solid state lights. This means that the traditional glass bulb surrounding the light is entirely unnecessary.
9. LED Dimming Capability:
LEDs are able to operate at virtually any percentage of their rated power (0 to 100%). Of note, they do require hardware specific to LED technology in order to dim (meaning you cannot use the dimming equipment for an incandescent bulb or other traditional lighting technology). A positive of operating LEDs at less than full power is that they get more efficient as the power reduced. This also increases the total lifespan of the light itself. Both of those advantages are absent with technologies like metal halides that actually get less efficient at lower power and in many cases cannot be dimmed at all.
10. Long Range LED Light Produce Virtually Zero UV Emissions:
Long range LEDs emits the vast majority of their energy in the visible spectrum, a small amount in the infrared spectrum, and virtually none in the ultraviolet portion of the spectrum. This means that LEDs are able to safely and reliably illuminate UV sensitive items like art that will break down and degrade over time if exposed to this type of emission.
