Maxxeon Inc. announced the advent of the WorkStar 2000, the third generation of cordless LED work lights developed by the company since the invention of the original WorkStar 1200 in 2003. 

Company spokesman, John Schira, recently revealed the features of the new tool. “The WorkStar 2000 retains the multi-directional lighting head, but thanks to new technology, light output has been vastly increased. The MRO technician simply suspends the light by its hook or its magnets and turns the LED light head to direct the light where he wants it, leaving his hands free. Since the light head “stays put”, this solves another especially aggravating problem for industrial mechanics - trying to make repairs while the work light moves around and glares into their eyes. Features such as dual light level, integral magnets and retractable hook combine with the new, ergonomic design to make it the ideal work light in any shop.”

The light includes a belt clip to aid in portability, a 12 volt charger, a 110 volt charger, and has a connection in the base to allow mounting the product to a tripod. The light is rechargeable with a run time of up to 10 hours, and includes an LED charge indicator to make the operator aware of the state of the charge.

The WorkStar 2000 replaces the WorkStar 1400 work light, which is still in use in thousands of industrial maintenance shops across the country. The new work light will be available from industrial distributors in October.
