A new line of 12V LED vehicle pilot lights is being introduced by Cole Hersee, the commercial vehicle products division of Littelfuse.
The solid-state LED lights last longer than incandescent bulbs, the company said. Because they run cooler, the lights are less susceptible to heat buildup. The energy efficient LED also reduces battery drain.
The lights come in a wide variety of bezel sizes and terminal hole diameters. They are offered in red, amber, and green. Some models also come in blue or white as well. Most feature ¼-in. blade terminals, available as screw terminals by special order. The PL-525/526 snap-in series is offered in both steady and blinking versions.
“LEDs can function over a wider range of temperatures, from desert conditions to frigid weather,” said Graeme Marsden, marketing communications manager for Littelfuse CVP. “They are not susceptible to the corrosion that may occur in bulb bases and sockets and they draw far fewer watts from your batteries for the amount of light emitted.”
