Freightliner provides Truck-Lite headlamps
Jan 23, 2013 9:13 AM
Freightliner Trucks announced the availability of high-performance LED headlamps custom-engineered for the Freightliner Cascadia by Truck-Lite Co LLC. The new headlamps will also be available as an aftermarket retrofit option from Freightliner dealers across North America.
The new Truck-Lite LED headlamps were initially developed for military use and offer increased durability, visibility, and safety to the heavy-duty truck platform. Manufactured in the United States, Truck-Lite’s forward-lighting technology has been proven on vehicles serving in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2007.
For trucks other than the Freightliner Cascadia, easy-to-install aftermarket retrofit options include traditional 7" round and 5" x 7" alternatives.
Truck-Lite’s LED forward-lighting headlamps offer improved driver visibility through its more natural light spectrum, leading to improved object recognition at night and increased daytime visibility. The LED beam pattern also reduces eye strain for drivers and reduces harsh headlight glare to oncoming traffic. An additional benefit is a reduction in amperage draw on the vehicles electrical system, freeing up power for other uses and resulting in a 50-times-longer lighting system life than conventional halogen technology.
