Timpte showcases new Optronics LEDs
By Christian Shelton06 May 2021
USA-based manufacturer of vehicle harnesses, electronic control systems and LED lighting for the global transportation industry, Optronics International, has launched 1 1/4-inch MCL16 LED Marker/Clearance Lights.
The six-diode MCL16 Series lights are hard wired and include separate grounding wires and a PVC gromet. Dual-function models are available for supplemental stop and turn functions. MCL16 Series lamps include models featuring a yellow lens, a red lens, a clear lens that is yellow when illuminated, and a clear lens that is red when illuminated.
The lamp’s lens and housing are made of polycarbonate material that is sealed and waterproof. The lamp employs a solid-state, surface-mount device (SMD) design that protects its electronics against moisture, shock and vibration. These lamps come with one-diode lifetime warranty protection that will replace the lamp if even one diode fails.
Some versions of the new 1 1/4-inch MCL16 LED Marker/Clearance Light are in stock now, and all are expected to be in stock and available for shipping by the end of the second quarter of 2021, adds Optronics.
Nebraska, USA-based dry bulk commodity trailer manufacturer Timpte will be the first to use the new light and Optronics lighting will now come as standard on all Timpte trailers, including the 2022 Super Hopper model trailers.
“We’re very excited to earn a partnership with a well-respected industry leader like Timpte,” Marcus Hester, vice president of sales and marketing for Optronics International, said. “We’re looking forward to the honour of having our 1 1/4-inch MCL16 LED Marker/Clearance Light on Timpte’s 2022 Super Hopper and to seeing Optronics’ high-performance LED lighting on new Timpte trailers.
“Timpte started shipping trailers with Optronics LED lighting in March of this year. The move to Optronics’ LED lights will make Timpte trailers more visible, and because Optronic LED lights commonly have life spans of between 50,000 to 100,000 hours, those who purchase and own Timpte trailers won’t have to worry about lighting issues.”
