Optronics International has expanded its Opti-Brite LED Headlamp product lineup, adding a new five-by-seven-inch, combination high-and low-beam headlamp.
Like other headlamps in the Opti-Brite Headlamp Series, the new lamps are designed with a retroreflective LED light beam technology that enables them to project an optimized beam pattern. Opti-Brite LED headlamps feature a rear-oriented LED that faces backward toward a metallic parabolic reflector. The design allows it to exhibit high and low-beam characteristics and also features an LED conspicuity array in the center of the lens.
“Our Opti-Brite LED Headlamps are designed to enhance a vehicle’s style as well as its operator’s performance,” said Brett Johnson, president and CEO of Optronics International. “Engineered for an international OEM and aftermarket audience, our entire Opti-Brite LED Headlamp family is multi-volt compatible and FMVSS 108 and ECE/R10 compliant.”
Behind the headlamp’s conspicuity array, Optronics’ advanced reflector geometry emits a tightly controlled blue-white light beam that approximates the color temperature of the sun’s natural light, according to the company. The light quality makes it easier for the human eye to see the road, which can improve safety and reduce eye fatigue.
The new headlamps are engineered to accommodate from 9- to 33-volt electrical systems and have an expected service life of 30,000 hours. Opti-Brite LED Headlamps feature Optronics’ one-diode lifetime warranty protection, which will replace the lamp if even one diode fails.
The lamps are IP67 and SAE J575e rated for ingress protection and come complete with enhanced electromagnetic interference (EMI), electrostatic discharge (ESD) and power surge protection features. All have durable powder-coated, die-cast aluminum housings with tough polycarbonate lenses and a special coating that protects them against the elements and cracking, fading and yellowing from exposure to UV radiation.
Opti-Brite LED Headlamps come in four formats that fit a broad range of vehicle makes and models.Opti-Brite LED Headlamps come in hardwired versions with a three-wire design with 6.5-inch leads and with standard H4 three-blade connectors for retrofitting any vehicle.
The new HLL70HLB five-by-seven-inch Opti-Brite LED Headlamp is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2018.
“These Opti-Brite LED Headlamps greatly improve foreground lighting from the bumper to 25 feet out,” said Jacques Baudeloque, national sales manager for Optronics International. “They also deliver very appealing drive-behind performance that operators will appreciate.”
