Posted by Ventry Solutions, Inc. on

4 choices will lead you to the best Lentry Light System for your needs.

Lentry Light model numbers explanation
Model numbers tell you everything!

Four main decisions or choices may help you choose which all-terrain, portable Lentry Power and Light System is best for you.

  1. Do you need power and if so, how much?
  2. Which light?
  3. What height?
  4. How many telescoping lights/poles?

Some decisions will limit other choices; for example, the light or lights chosen can not draw more power all together than the generator/power source offers.

How much power do you need?

Choose from these two Honda super-quiet series inverter generators.

Generator Name Max Rated Models
Honda EU1000i 1000W 900W Model numbers that begin with “1”.
If light is all you need, this 1000W (max) generator usually is plenty and runs a long time.
Honda EU2200i 2200W 1800W Model numbers that begin with “2”.
Choose this 2200W (max) generator for extra power or even longer run-times.

Already have a Honda 1000W, 2000W, or 2200W generator? No problem! Simply order the model you want without the generator. For example, if you have a Honda EU1000i generator, pick one of the models beginning with the number 1 and specify “no generator” when getting prices and placing your order. Converting a Honda generator into a Lentry System is easy and explained in more detail here.

Have a different power source and do not need an extra generator? No problem! Lentry Utility Lighting Systems are for those who already have a power source available or already have a Lentry System and would like to run a second light in a different location.

Which light?

V-Star LED 20,000 240W Model numbers with “STAR” in the middle.
V-Spec LED 28,000 336W Model numbers with “SPEC” in the middle.
Models with -C23, -C34, or -C50 near the end include a case to hold the LED head.
2-Headed V-Spec LED 56,000 total 672W total Model numbers with "TWSP" in the middle. The 2-Headed V-Spec LED is available with an XT height pole only.
Optup halogen 19,600 750W Model numbers with “OPUP” in the middle.

Choose the height.

All Lentry Lights operate without extending the legs or telescoping lights, but the taller the light is, the larger the illuminated area will be.

Lentry Generator Light Systems have three independently adjustable legs that lock at any length of their telescoping legs. Lentry Utility Light Systems have four independently telescoping legs with four positive locking positions: verticle, normal, and two for uneven terrain.

Measurements below are based on the models with their legs and poles fully extended. Choose from Standard, XT, or Hi-Lite heights. Exception: Model numbers with “X+S” in them have one light head but two poles, one standard and one XT.

Lentry Generator Light Systems

Name Max Height Models
Standard 3.5 to 4 feet tall Model numbers with “S” at or near the end.
XT (extra tall) 8.5 to 9 feet tall Model numbers with “X” at or near the end.
Hi-Lite 13 feet tall Models numbers with “H” at or near the end.

Lentry Utility Light Systems

Name Max Height Models
XT (extra tall) up to 11 feet tall SPECX-SS-C23, TWSPX-SS-C34, and TWSPX-SS-C50
Hi-Lite up to 15 feet tall SPECH-SS-C23

Choose the number of telescoping lights.

Thanks to efficient lights, Lentry Generator Light Towers include models with one, two or three telescoping lights, or one 2-Headed light. The total draw from the lights can not exceed the rated wattage of the model’s generator (either 900W or 1800W). Lentry Utility Light Systems only include models with one telescoping light.

All lights offered on Lentry Light Systems are very bright, as seen here. To prove how bright the LED lights are, we were able to measure the coverage area each lit. Often, customers have found that just one light is enough, but many like multiple lights on one system as each light can be aimed in a different direction.

Models. Towards the end of each model number--the S, SS, X, XX, XXX, H--shows the quantity of lights and poles and height of poles.

  • Single Systems. Model numbers ending with S, X or H have one telescoping light, Standard, XT or Hi-Lite height respectively.
  • Dual Systems. Model numbers ending in SS or XX have two telescoping lights, Standard or XT height respectively. Exception: the 2-Headed V-Spec LED has two light heads on an single XT height pole.
  • Triple Systems. Model numbers ending in XXX have three telescoping lights, all XT height.
