One of the best sight glass lights just got even better. The LJ Star LumiStar®1000, the world’s brightest compact sight glass luminaire, is now Intertek ETL approved and conforms to UL 2108; in Canada it conforms to CSA C22.2 #250.0.

What is the ETL Listed Mark?

Intertek ETL certifications serve as the benchmark for safety and performance in

today’s processing equipment. The ETL Listed Mark indicates that a product has been thoroughly tested by Intertek and found to be compliant with accepted national standards.

UL 2108, the Standard for Low Voltage Lighting Systems, helps to ensure that low voltage lighting systems are safe, reliable, and performing at their best. UL 2108 covers a variety of design and operational specifications, including those around:

  • Splices and connections
  • Markings and instructions
  • Installation requirements
  • Light housing

The Proven Quality of LumiStar1000’s Process Lighting

By conforming to UL 2108, the LumiStar1000 has proven itself as the go-to choice for compact and high-quality p

rocess vessel lighting. LJ Star’s optimized LED sight glass light is perfect for illuminating nearly any tank or critical process vessel, with a hygienic clamp or industrial bracket mount. Examples of applicable systems are:

  • Brew kettles
  • Bioreactors
  • Mixers
  • Hoppers and silos
  • Agitators and separators

At full brightness, the LumiStar’s ultra-bright LED provides up to 1000 lumens, two times the light output of a typical 100-Watt halogen bulb. Ideal for vessel illumination, the LumiStar’s total internal reflection (TIR) lens has a 23-degree beam angle for maximum light output. When put through a sight glass, the LED only loses less than 5% of its total light output.

With a cool white, 5500K color temperature, this light is capable of continuous operation, optimized for stainless steel vessels. Low operating voltage of 12-24V AC or DC and higher voltages of 110-240V AC available.

Other benefits of the LumiStar1000 include easy installation and low heat output. The light easily mounts next to or over a sight glass, while its LED technology produces less

heat than standard halogen bulbs. This also helps to keep your operations pure, as the LED will not transfer heat to the process media in your tank, kettle or process vessel.

The LumiStar1000 also offers three different modes of operation for enhanced application versatility. Program the LED to work in virtually any situation with the ability to switch between:

  • Flashlight mode
  • Timed mode
  • Dimmer mode
