Optronics International has introduced its new MCL80RCB LED Combination ID Light Bar and Utility Light.
The new lamp enables a vehicle’s light bar to serve double duty as a utility and scene light, whether it’s mounted high or low, the company says.
With a mounting position high on the back of a vehicle, the lamp is able to illuminate a wide area below and behind it with white LED light. Mounted on trailers where the ID bar is close to the ground, the lamp provides greater visibility and safety with a tighter and more intense beam pattern, Optronics says.
Using the ID light already required for vehicles measuring 80 in. or more in width as a platform, the MCL80RCB LED Combination ID Light Bar & Utility Light incorporates two seven-diode white LED utility lights. The body of the lamp measures 15.5 in. in length, 1.313 in. in width and 0.75 in. in thickness, including its attached, closed-cell foam gasket.
The integrated utility lights can be operated with a standard switch, and the lamp requires two fasteners for mounting and one wiring hole with a 0.59-in. diameter.
The lamp’s lens and housings are made of a polycarbonate material that is sonically welded, the company says. The lamp employs a solid-state, surface-mount device design that protects its electronics against moisture, shock and vibration. These lamps come with lifetime warranty protection that will replace the lamp if even one diode fails.
The company says that ideal applications for this light include last-mile delivery trucks and enclosed trailers.
The MCL80RCB LED Combination ID Light Bar and Utility Light is expected to be in stock and available for shipping in the first quarter of 2021.
