OceanLED XseriesGlobal Underwater Light Leader Offers Better Value And Simplified Choice To Its Extremely Popular Surface Mount Range Of Underwater Lights

OceanLED, the global leader in marine LED lighting, introduced its updated X-Series, designed for the Leisure and fishing market.

 

The X-Series is a combination of the current OceanLED XT and XP product ranges. It consists of 5 lights in 3 sizes (4, 8 or 16 LED’s) in either a choice of Ultra White, Midnight Blue or RGBW (X8 and X16 only). The X-Series outputs up to 4,500 fixture lumens and benefits from bespoke optics which focus the beam and increase penetration in the water illuminating a larger area.

 

“At OceanLED we reviewed our product range and wanted to offer our customers the best possible products,” said Charles Stuart, Managing Director of OceanLED. “We understand that consumers want a simple to understand product range at a price that reflects the quality and technology offered. By combining the XT and XP range, we have reduced the product choice from 10 to 5 while maintaining the high-end features of the XP for the price of the XT. The feedback from our trade partners shows we’ve taken one of the best known underwater lighting ranges and made it even better, ensuring the continued success of these products for the next few years”.

 

The new X8 and X16 Colours now combine the standard colour change and the DMX control into the one light. You can toggle between the RGBW colours with a standard DC switch, or for full control and customisation, add an OceanDMX App controller kit and download the free iOS/Android App for smartphones or tablets. The easy to use App allows you to choose from an almost limitless number of colours and pick from a selection of modes like Single colour, Cycle, Strobe, Music or Wave.

 

The fish-strobe mode gives an exceptionally bright, randomised strobing effect that is proven to catch more bait and attract more fish.

 

Installation is simple with only a small 12.5mm hole needed to run the cable through the hull and four screws to fix it in place. Maintenance is virtually zero thanks to the special Tritonium lens coating with just a quick wipe removing any marine growth.

John Alexander Roy passed away quietly at home on August 12 after a short battle with cancer. He was 61.

Music was in John's blood, playing both trombone and piano, but it was on the ocean that John found his calling. He first took to the water in the mid-60s aboard his father's schooner, the Jeto. Soon after he began his 50-year relationship with the Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron (RNSYS) as a junior sailor, instructor, member and Vice Commodore of Sailing. Sailing bridged pleasure and business for John, and in 1980 he began working for Ocean Yacht Sales before buying the company in 1990. OYS was a business and a passion that... READ MORE
