released a new 5-inch-by-7-inch LED headlamp.
Truck-Lite introduced its new 5-by-7-inch LED headlamp.
The new headlamps use LED arrays and complex reflector to create smooth, even light output.
The system meets FMVSS-108 and CMVSS-108 DOT requirements for both low- and high-beam performance, and the lamps' multi-volt design works with both 12v and 24v systems.
The LED headlamps feature a solid-state, bulb-free system that is impervious to damage caused by shock and vibration. The military grade, die-cast aluminum housing and non-yellowing polycarbonate lens offer optimum protection against damage from impact, roadside debris and other hazards, according to the company.
LED technology has significantly reduced LED headlamp current draw to 3.6a high beam and 1.8a low beam, allowing more power for other vehicle requirements and extending alternator life.
"Our existing as well as new headlamp offering really speaks to high performance, durability and increased visibility for forward lighting applications," says John Howells, vice president of sales. "Offering longer life than comparable incandescent lamps, these LED headlamp products are worth the upfront investment, saving the time and expense of replacing lamps multiple times."
