Magnetic Light Base
This Magnetic Light Base was designed to specific customer requirements. Large portable lights are to be fitted to heavy earth moving equipment. The lights are expensive and we don't want them to come off with sudden braking. We also don't want to damage the equipment by welding or drilling permanent fixings since the lights will be taken off as each item of equipment leaves the site.
Instead, we used very strong pot magnets attached to a triangle shaped plate of solid aluminum. The pot magnets were attached to the aluminum using flexible rubber joints allowing the pot magnets to follow the contours of the surface and absorb any sudden impact. Each pot magnet can hold over 50 kg.
The pot magnets are Diameter 88 mm x 19 mm thick. In the triangular base the magnets are 160mm between centres.
