Optronics' new marker/clearance lights

Optronics' new marker/clearance lightsOptronics new MCL16MRHAHB and MCL16MAHAHB LED Marker/Clearance/Scene Lights can turn white when a truck is parked to provide more lighting around the vehicle.

Optronics has introduced its new MCL16MRHAHB and MCL16MAHAHB LED Marker/Clearance/Scene Lights.

The newest members of Optronics’ MCL16 series family of lights, the unique 1 1/4-inch, seven-diode, PC-rated lamps enable vehicles to meet clearance and all marker lighting regulations, but give users an extra lighting bonus. The new clear lens lamps are able to turn white when a truck or trailer is stationary, creating a bright halo of light around the vehicle perimeter. 

As winter approaches and low-light conditions encroach on work hours, the new lights can create a safer and more productive environment for workers, the company says.

“With the simple flip of a switch, our new MCL16MRHAHB and MCL16MAHAHB LED Marker/Clearance/Scene Lights can illuminate the entire periphery of a parked vehicle with bright white LED light,” said Marcus Hester, chief marketing officer for Optronics. “Not only will these mini scene lights help workers see potential hazards around their vehicles, but their brilliant white LED light will also help others on the road see a vehicle and those working around it.”

Both seven-diode lights are hard-wired and include separate grounding wires and both feature a pliable EPDM grommet. The lamps require only a single 1.4-inch diameter mounting hole.

The lamp's lens and housing are made of tough 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. Like all LED products from Optronics, these lamps come with no-hassle, one-diode lifetime warranty protection that will replace the lamp if even one diode fails.

The new lights will be available at the end of the first quarter of 2022.
