The Stryker ST Series of remote-control LED and halogen searchlights is the culmination of continuous field studies and voice-of-the-customer research that identified desired functional enhancements. The newly designed remote-control unit is as simple to operate as it is intelligent. Large buttons are easy to access even with gloved hands, and fluorescent iconography makes the controller buttons legible in dark or low-light conditions. The controller is now powered by two regular AAA batteries for added convenience.

The Stryker ST lets users pan and tilt simultaneously. It also comes with a unit selector function that enables a user to operate two Stryker STs individually or in synchronization, using a single remote-control transmitter, reducing the number of remote controls that a vehicle must carry. Pairing the new remote-control transmitter with a Stryker ST is as simple as pressing and holding two buttons, and the use of dipswitches has been completely engineered out of the equation. Once a controller is paired with a lamp or lamps, that same controller can replicate its pairing, allowing multiple controllers to be uniformly paired and enabling several users to share control of an individual lamp or other paired lamps. The Stryker ST Series operates at 2.4 GHz, virtually eliminating the possibility of intra-lamp interference, even in instances where many Stryker ST lamps and controllers are being used in the same vicinity.

The one-button home-position function is also a new feature on the Stryker ST Series. Unlike some remote-control lamps that automatically return to their home position when turned off, the Stryker ST maintains its existing position when powered off, allowing users to stop and start activities without the need to reorient their light source each time. The feature also allows users to point the lamps to the rear when not in use to protect the lenses from harm.

The Stryker ST comes standard with 12-volt electrical system compatibility and is available with 24-volt compatibility. The lamps come with either LED or halogen lights. The LED model features tough polycarbonate plano-convex (P-Vex) lens technology. The halogen version comes with Golight’s PentaBeam reflector design and a tempered glass lens. Both LED and halogen versions optimally focus their beam patterns at an 8-degree angle. The low-maintenance lamps come with a high-impact, UV-ray-resistant and saltwater-resistant housing suitable for land and marine applications.

The LED Stryker ST lamp employs 10 high-flux LEDs, producing a 410,000-candela beam projecting to a maximum distance of 4,200 feet. The halogen Stryker ST lamp produces a 200,000-candela beam projecting to a maximum distance of 2,933 feet. The Stryker ST is available in a permanent-mount model with a stainless-steel mounting bracket and a portable model with a magnetic base. There is also a magnetic base adapter kit that allows users to install a Stryker ST with a magnetic base to a non-magnetic surface, such as aluminum. An optional remote-control holster is also available.

Both LED and halogen lamps come with a five-year unlimited warranty and are supported by Golight’s unparalleled customer service department, which prides itself on accessibility and effectiveness.
