Larson Electronics Magnalight worked with family members to equip US soldiers in Iraq with high power lighting products to detect and destroy roadside bombs and snipers. SFC Henk's group in Iraq based Camp HIT clear roadside bombs and IEDs for other units admist sniper fire and uncooperative local forces. Family members contacted Larson Electronics, who matched family support with 24 volt spotlights, remote control spotlights, HID flashlights and vehicle mount spotlights with magnetic bases.

Flower Mound, Texas (PRWeb) November 18, 2006 -- Larson Electronics Magnalight worked with family members to equip US soldiers in Iraq with high power lighting products to detect and destroy roadside bombs and snipers. SFC Randy Henk's group in Iraq, based at Camp HIT, clear roadside bombs and IEDs for other units amidst sniper fire and uncooperative local forces. Family members contacted Larson Electronics, who matched family support with 24 volt spotlights, remote control spotlights, HID flashlights and vehicle mount spotlights with magnetic bases. Within 10 days, nearly $10,000 worth of lighting products were on their way to Iraq courtesy of Larson Electronics, family members and concerned community members.

SFC Randy Henk's group is in need of various supplies including military spotlights and military searchlights. Known for weekly editorial contributions in a local Chicago newspaper (http://www.suburbanchicagonews.com/couriernews/news/henk/index.html), SFC Henk's group performs IED search and detonation missions. IEDs are explosive devices cloaked as common roadside objects, designed to surprise and kill American troops in Iraq. While avoiding insurgent sniper fire, SFC Henk's group works to find IEDs and perform controlled detonations so other units can move safely through the area. SFC Henk indicated in his last article that he was in need of equipment and supplies for his unit at Camp Hit.

Larson Electronics Magnalight was contacted initially by Melisa Roche, whose brother, Daniel Roche, also serves in that unit in Camp Hit. "We sent some email back and forth with SFC Henk and determined that he was looking for around 50 lights to outfit 8 up-armored vehicles," said Rob Bresnahan, President of Larson Electronics. "We have several products that are deployed throughout Iraq that meet his needs. We sent over a couple cases of our HML-5M 24 volt military spotlights with magnetic base this morning."

Community members reading SFC Henk's article have also contacted Larson Electronics Magnalight and purchased spotlights for the unit. Larson Electronics matched the purchase of every 2 HML-5M 24 volt military spotlights with one free HML-5M 24 volt military spotlight. Larson Electronics also contributed some new high power HID spotlights and flashlights. We would like to thank the following community/family members, including:

Mark Bohne purchased 2 of the HML-5M 24 volt military spotlights. These spotlights were sent 11/8/06

Colette McGrath, from Chicago, IL, purchased 1 of the HML-5M 24 volt military spotlight. This spotlight was sent 11/8/06.

Rose Decosimo, from Signal Mountain, TN, purchased 6 of the GL-3049-24-M wireless remote control spotlights with magnetic base and ring terminal connections to outfit each vehicle. These spotlights will be sent 11/15/2006.

Trisha McDonnell, from Chicago, Illinois, purchased a GL-3049-24-M wireless remote control spotlights with magnetic base and ring terminal connections. This spotlight was sent on 11/13/2006.

The Boyle Troop, including Jim, Peg, Meghan, Marc, Fiona, Grace, Ethan, Niamh, Kathleen, Quinn, Siobhan, Seamus, Beth and Packy purchased 2 of the HML-5M 24 volt military spotlights. These spotlights were sent on 11/13/06.

Kyle Nemetz, of Elkhorn, Wisconsin purchased 12 of the HML-5M 24 volt military spotlights. These units were sent on 11/13/06. Kyle's company, Harvard Factory Automation (www.hfaconveyors.com) also donated a variety of other tools, including cordless drills, sealants, cobalt bits, wire connectors, etc.

Liane Roche, Melisa Roche and Jane Swensen purchased 2 of the HML-5M 24 volt military spotlights. The spotlights were sent on 11/13/06. Mike Roche (Uncle Mike, Aunt Susan and Cassidy) purchased 4 of the HML-5M 24 volt military spotlights. The spotlights were sent on 11/15/06.

Aileen Omalley, from Chicago, IL, purchased a GL-3049-24-M wireless remote control spotlights with magnetic base and ring terminal connections. This spotlight was sent on 11/13/06.

Patrick Roche purchased 1 of the HML-5M 24 volt military spotlights. This spotlight will be sent 11/15/06.

Larson Electronics contributed 14 of the HML-5M 24 volt military spotlights, 1 of the HML-6M 12/24 Volt HID military spotlights, 1 of the Rechargeable HID flashlight and some t-shirts and hats.

"Once we had reached the quantity of lighting products that SFC Henk was looking for, we decided to throw in some of our new high powered High Intensity Discharge spotlights," Rob stated. "These lights project a beam nearly 2,200 feet. The bulbs do not use a filament so they have proven very durable, since there is no filament to break. Plus, they have a lifespan of more than 5,000 hours. We have had reports from Iraq that the lighting color is very natural and thus very effective in locating IEDs. I wanted to take a moment and thank one of our suppliers, Bob Rinaldi with Acro Lights, for their contribution towards the HID spotlights and flashlights."

Larson Electronics produces several 24 volt military spotlight models that would be effective in searching for IEDs and snipers. HML-5M 24 volt military spotlight features a 100 pound grip magnetic base and mounts anywhere on most military vehicles and weapons, including the .50 caliber and M4 automatic guns. With over 7,000 of these deployed in Iraq, the HML-5M 24 volt military spotlight has proven very durable and reliable. Today, it is standard issue for the Special Forces' EOF kits.

Larson Electronics released the HML-6M 12/24 Volt HID military spotlight last month. Featuring an HID lamp that produces 20 million candlepower and 200 pound grip magnetic base, this heavy duty military spotlight has been well received in the field. The light produces a color range of 4300K, which has proved effective in locating IEDs due to the natural color it provides.

Larson Electronics Magnalight also has magnetic mount remote control spotlights. These wireless remote control spotlights enable the operator to control the pan and tilt of the spotlight from 150 feet away in any direction. Soldiers can control the light from inside the vehicle or have the light point at their work area away from the vehicle. The GL-3049-24-M wireless remote control spotlight with magnetic base features a 24 volt remote controlled, motorized spotlight with a 200 pound grip magnetic base and 21 foot cord with ring terminals. The beam reaches 800 feet into the distance. This light can be installed and operational in minutes.

In total, 47 lights have been sent to SFC Randy Henk's unit in less than 10 days.
