Optronics International introduced a new LED utility, scene, and work light. The UCL45 Series lamps come with an IP65 rating for dust and water resistance. Their ratio of high lumens to low cost and low power makes these lamps suitable for everything from heavy equipment to electric delivery vehicles, according to Optronics, a manufacturer of vehicle harnesses, electronic control systems and LED lighting for the global transportation industry.
Optronics’ UCL45 Series lights are robotically assembled using solid-state, surface-mounted diodes soldered directly to the lamp’s printed circuit board (PCB). The automated pick-and-place process ensures precision construction and reliable LED performance and proper heat management that extends the life of each diode and the lamp as a whole.
“With our tough, new UCL45 Series LED utility, scene, work light, we’ve increased lumen output while reducing product cost, all while engineering a very sturdy lamp with a lifetime LED warranty,” said Marcus Hester, chief marketing officer for Optronics International. “With 12- and 24-inch models available, these are lamps with almost unlimited application flexibility.”
The 12-inch model UCL45CH12BB features a 4,500-lumen output, while the 24-inch model UCL45CH24BB features a 9,000-lumen output. Both lamps are engineered with heavy-duty extruded aluminum housings, with an integrated mounting bracket, stainless steel end-cap fasteners, and a durable powder coating finish available in either black or white. The integrated mounting bracket is designed to cast the lamp’s beam pattern at a 20-degree angle.
The lamps are compatible with both 12-volt and 24-volt electrical systems and are still fully operational within the range of the 9 to 36 volts commonly found in the field. Their low overall amp-per-lumen and amp-per-LED draw makes the lamps highly energy efficient and well suited for battery electric vehicle applications and for vehicles in areas with strict no-idling laws. The lamps come complete with both lead and ground wiring, ready to install.
“Our market analysis suggests that the UCL45 Series LED utility, scene, work light will be best suited for a diverse range of applications including work trucks, heavy equipment, delivery vehicles, utility trailers, tow and recovery vehicles, concession trailers and food trucks, enclosed cargo trailers, toy haulers and truck bed lighting of all kinds,” said Hester. “These are extremely energy-efficient lights with significant lighting output capabilities, and we think electric vehicle manufacturers, upfitters and fleets will also be very interested.”
The lamp’s lenses are made of tough polycarbonate material that is sealed and resistant to dust and moisture and is suitable for harsh operating conditions. The lamps employ a solid-state, surface-mount device (SMD) design that protects its electronics against moisture, shock and vibration. Like all LED products from Optronics, these lamps come with a no-hassle, one-diode lifetime warranty protection that will replace the lamp if even one diode fails.
The 12-inch 4,500-lumen model UCL45CH12BB and the 24-inch 9,000-lumen model UCL45CH24BB LED utility, scene, work lights are in stock and available for shipping now.
