Truck-Lite announced its latest advancement in the LED forward lighting market – the 4x6 (165mm) rectangular LED headlight system, a drop-in replacement for 1A1 and 2A1 sealed beams in most applications. This system is the follow-up to the 7-inch round and 5x7-inch headlights, the company said.
"The thing that excites me about the new 4x6 LED headlights is the world-class beam pattern and the low cost. Truck-Lite continues to work towards reducing the cost and improving the performance of our products,” said Brad Van Riper, senior vice president and chief technology officer. “You'll find we were able to do both with this new system.”
Made possible by developments in new technology, the company said the new system will offer the “industry's best beam pattern, with improved width and longer reach.”
"Our goal is to get LED lighting and its safety benefits into as many vehicles as possible,” said Brian Kupchella, president and chief operating officer. “Truck-Lite received feedback from the market that there was a demand for this, and we're thrilled to respond so quickly, and with such a high-caliber product.”
With the release of the new system, Truck-Lite said it is bringing the benefits of LED lighting — longer life, better lumen maintenance, and improved color — to a variety of new applications.
“A multi-volt (9-33v) design ensures that the 4x6 LED headlight system works with any vehicle that utilizes industry standard 4x6-inch cutouts — from buses and medium duty trucks, to classic cars and off-road vehicles,” the company said. “When properly mounted, the headlights exceed FMVSS-108 and CMVSS-108 DOT requirements for both low and high beam performance.”
