5x7 LED HEADLAMP
Truck-Lite now offers a DOT-approved 5x7-in. LED headlamp to go with the 7-in. round lamp introduced in 2009, a world first. Made in the U.S.A., the new light, part #27450C, uses metalized reflector optics to provide what the company calls "smooth and clean" across the driving surface.
The LED headlamp system meets and exceeds FMVSS-108 and CMVSS-108 DOT requirements for both low- and high-beam performance. New LED technology produces light far closer to the actual colour temperature of natural sunlight (6000K) than conventional incandescent or halogen lamps, says Truck-Lite. The lamp's multi-volt design works with both 12- and 24-volt systems.
While more expensive than ordinary headlamps, like most LED lighting the new Truck-Lite product should save the time and expense of replacing lamps multiple times. Longer life and greater dependability are joined by brighter, crisper and whiter light output than incandescent alternatives, the company says. All 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, says Truck-Lite.
These LED headlamps are drop-in replacements for #6052, 6053, H6054 and HP6054 using a standard H4 three-blade connector. LED technology has significantly reduced LED headlamp current draw to 3.6a high beam and 1.8a low beam.
