Optronics International added a new five-by-seven-in., combination high- and low-beam headlamp to its Opti-Brite LED Headlamp line.
Among the features of the Opti-Brite Headlamp series, including the new HLL70HLB headlamp, are a unique retroflective LED light beam technology that enables them to project an optimized beam pattern; Opti-Brite’s LED conspicuity array; and rear-oriented LEDs.
Behind the headlamp’s conspicuity array, Optronics’ reflector geometry emits a tightly controlled blue-white light beam that approximates the color temperature of the sun’s natural light, which makes it easier for the human eye to see the road, thus enhancing safety while reducing eye fatigue, Optronics said. According to Optronics, the new headlamps are engineered to accommodate from 9- to 33-volt electrical systems and have an expected service life of 30,000 hours, 15 to 30 times that of halogen and HID headlamps. The lamps are IP67 and SAE J575e rated for ingress protection and come with enhanced electromagnetic interference (EMI), electrostatic discharge (ESD) and power surge protection features.
The new HLL70HLB lamp fits 5-by-7-in. rectangular formats and has both high- and low-beam functions built in. The HLL93HLB series fits a seven-inch round format and also has both high- and low-beam functions built in. The HLL79HB high-beam lamps and HLL78LB low-beam lamps fit four-by-six-inch rectangular formats and are compatible with four-lamp systems with separate, dedicated high-beam and low-beam lamps.
The new HLL70HLB 5-by-7-in. Opti-Brite LED Headlamp is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2018.
