Auto Electrical Imports celebrating a 20-year global partnership

Scorpius PRO 445

Auto Electrical Imports’ (AEI) release of the new Scorpius PRO 445 combines Aussie resilience with European ingenuity in a true global partnership.

AEI Managing Director Norman Haupt said the company has been working with NORDIC LIGHTS® for more than 20 years.

“From major roadworks to the transport of goods using heavy vehicles – while most of the country sleeps – huge infrastructure projects are delivered across the country,” he said.

“In today’s 24/7 economy, civil and construction works simply can’t allow for darkness 50% of the time.

“Auto Electrical Imports and NORDIC LIGHTS® create products that are built for industries where safety is paramount.”

NORDIC LIGHTS® manufacture original equipment for the toughest mining and construction sectors in the world and it gives them a unique insight into what the Australian construction sector needs.

“AEI have worked with NORDIC LIGHTS®, to create an international partnership that has seen us first to market with innovative lighting systems,” said Mr Haupt.

“Over the last 20 years AEI and Nordic have created, tested and proven safety lighting systems.

“Our products are often tried and tested at mine sites. They are developed for tough environments and crossover to withstand the demands of civil construction sites.”

NORDIC LIGHTS® Business Director Lena Smeds-Furu said working with AEI had seen strength and growth in the market through teamwork and continuous effort.

“We could never have been successful without the work and contribution of great, loyal partners like IONNIC,” she said.

“We value the long-term partnership with IONNIC during the last 20 years and look forward too many more years of continued distribution and partnership.”

Safe lighting solutions built tough to save time and money

The changing nature of the build process creates a challenge for contractors trying to provide adequate lighting. The ability to access power, being able to safely evacuate in emergencies and night-time operation of heavy vehicles are just the beginning.

AEI and Nordic have worked to bring products to Australia which stand up to the effects of vibration, shock and dust without compromising the light needed to keep worksites safe.

“The products we bring to market from NORDIC provide essential safety and uptime benefits,” Mr Haupt said.

Scorpius PRO 445 – Powerful, Durable and Safe

The Scorpius PRO 445 is a brand-new heavy-duty work lamp offering unparalleled performance in a compact body size. Going back to the drawing board Nordic have incorporated cutting-edge materials and components in the design and manufacture of the Scorpius Pro.

In product development for over three years, engineers brought the Scorpius Pro 445 weight down to only 1kg, it’s smaller, lighter and has a more compact design. It can be mounted with a single M10/pedestal bolt. Premium quality Japanese manufactured NICIA LED chips deliver exceptional light output and improved colour rendering so objects are not only easier to see but also appear more realistic and natural.

A Lens with exceptional heat tolerance

“NORDIC® have used Grilamed®, a new material in the manufacture of the Scorpius pro lens. Grilamed® is a high-performance polyamide developed and manufactured in Switzerland.

“It is resilient to impact, fatigue and atmospheric conditions has high transparency and superior electromagnetic capability.”

“The use of Grilamed has allowed us to produce a Work lamp range with not only exceptional physical performance but also exceptional light output and patterns.”

With high operational light output of 4400lm and low power consumption the durable Scorpius PRO 445 can stand up to demanding environments.

The Scorpius Pro has a five-year warranty and IP68 and IP6K9K and SAE J1455 ratings. Auto Electrical Imports has the expertise to help companies design and build customised lighting systems to include the work lamp.

Best LED Work Light in Trailer Magazine

In March 2020, an independent European test was conducted by Trailer Magazine with 13 different work lamp models on the market, which saw the Scorpius PRO 445 emerging victorious over the competition.

The jury concluded the Scorpius PRO 445 incorporated very efficient physical design allowing exceptional dissipation of heat. This enabled the light to perform consistently with high levels of output for long working periods even in hot environments. 

They said it was the best balance between size and light output and quality for anyone who wants a light that illuminates a broad area.

Mr Haupt believes design and a superior quality of components used in the Scorpius PRO 445 ranked it ahead of the competition.

Nordic have sourced the quality products from around the world to manufacture this next-generation work lamp.

AEI provide specialist lighting, safety and electrical solutions for mobile plant and equipment in the automotive, mining, OEM, transport and construction industry worldwide.
