The new Universal Voltage LED Canopy Retrofit Kit offers a high-power factor with low total harmonic distortion (THD) and can be used for installations requiring 120V to 227V, making it a good replacement option for applications with up to 250W HID currently installed. Suitable for both damp and dry locations, the kit also features integrated thermal management for optimal performance and reliability, and has been tested to operate at temperatures rang- ing from -4 to 113 degrees Fahrenheit. The Universal Voltage LED Canopy Retrofit Kit uses optical lenses to direct the beam at a 160-degree angle, making it ideal for parking garage, walkways and perimeter lighting.

TEXTILE TRANSFER PRINTER OKI Data Americas, Indianapolis, expands its portfolio of textile transfer printers with the release of the Pro8432WT digital color printer. The Pro8432WT is the latest addition to OKI's revolutionary collection of white toner printers for the graphics and textile markets. The tabloid-sized Pro8432WT provides the digital heat trans- fer solution that textile merchants and gar- ment decorators demand for more vibrant, color-rich graphics on both light and dark garments, hard goods and promotional merchandise. Compact in size but powerful in production, the Pro8432WT is easy to operate and eliminates the cumbersome processes typically associated with traditional screen printing. The Pro8432WT relies on OKI's pat- ented LED printheads to deliver timely, consistent output up to 11"x17". With its white toner and single-pass print technology, the Pro8432WT saves time over other digital transfer printers without sacrificing the color palette afforded by spot color screen printing.

MULTI-PURPOSE DRYER Vastex International, Allentown, Pennsylvania, introduces a multi-purpose LittleRed X3-D infrared dryer capable of curing direct-to-garment (DTG) printed textiles as well as plastisol, water-based and discharge- printed garments at higher rates than possible with conventional dryer designs. The latest addi- tion to the LittleRed Dryer line, the 30 in. (76 cm) wide X3-D model features a high-powered pre-heating zone that rockets ink temperatures past 300°F (149ºC) within the first several inches of conveyor travel. Rapid preheating maximizes the distance and time over which the ink is accurately maintained at its optimum curing temperature, allow- ing increased conveyor belt speeds and dryer output. The dryer's three 24 in. (61 cm) wide heaters (8300W @ 240V total watt- age) are digitally-controlled and height-adjustable to maximize curing efficiency as garments are conveyed through the drying chamber, providing the precision-thermal-profiling (PTP) needed to match curing conditions to the drying characteristics of each ink type, particularly difficult-to-cure inkjet-printed white ink.
