Underwater LED Light
The LED Multi-SeaLite®, rated to 6,000 m, utilizes reflectors and driver circuitry to complement 18 bright LEDs. Drawing 45 W of power, it produces more light than a 250 W halogen lamp, projecting more than 2,500 lumens into the water. Blue and green LEDs are available to increase ocean penetration or reduce apparent backscatter, as the single colors closely match the maximum transmittance window of seawater. DeepSea Power & Light Inc.
