Optronics International has introduced the new ILL38CMB Corner-Mount Interior LED Lamp. According to the company, the modular, low-profile lamp can be installed in virtually any trailer as original equipment or as an aftermarket upgrade.
One of the challenges of interior vehicle lighting is to evenly illuminate the largest area possible, and to achieve this, a central lamp location is often adopted. Unfortunately, the placement of even a low-profile lamp on the ceiling of a vehicle’s cargo or work area can make it vulnerable to being struck by cargo, dock equipment and forklifts.
Optronics’ new ILL38CMB Corner-Mount Interior LED Lamp relocates a vehicle’s critical interior lighting sources away from the high-traffic central core of a vehicle, where they are vulnerable to potential harm, and reorients them to the corners of a vehicle’s ceiling, the company says. A corner location keeps the lights away from potential threats, while providing opposing beam directions that reduce shadows and dark areas, enhancing overall interior illumination quality, according to Optronics.
“The ILL38CMB Corner-Mount Interior LED Lamp is a smart design that takes interior lighting out of harm’s way,” Brett Johnson, president and chief executive officer of Optronics International, said. “This lamp combines practicality with safety and automation to create a unique new lighting solution.”
Additional features of the lamp, according to the company, include:
- A modular design that enables multiple LED lamps to be spaced along the ceiling of a vehicle or configured as two continuous bars of light on ceiling corners;
- A sturdy corner-mount design that attaches securely to both the ceiling and the wall;
- Comes with a passive infrared (PIR) sensor;
- Compatible with both 12- and 24-volt electrical systems;
- Operates in both refrigerated and non-climate-controlled environments and has an operational range of between -4 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit.
The new ILL38CMB Corner-Mount Interior LED Lamp is expected to be available at the end of the first quarter of 2019.
