Lamp equipped with clear lens and housing
Mar 1, 2002 12:00 PM
Truck-Lite Co Inc provides new clear lens and housing Model 19 (3.78" × 1.23" × 13/16") clearance/marker lamps. Since light-emitting diodes (LEDs) emit colored light, the red or amber of the diode will be seen even though the optical lens is colorless.
These new lamps are interchangeable with standard Model 19 lamps. They can be combined with gray, black, or chrome bases. An unlit lamp with a chrome base is virtually unnoticeable when mounted on stainless steel.
The Model 19 has all its electronics completely scaled in epoxy to resist shock, vibration, corrosion, and weather. The polycarbonate lens and housing resist abrasion and impact, and each lamp is covered by a three-year limited warranty.
At 13.5 volts, each lamp draws 0.05 amps. A full complement of FMVSS 108-required clearance and marker lamps will draw little more than half the current of a single incandescent lamp.
Model 19 lamps are recommended where space is at a premium, such as on narrow upper rails. Truck-Lite Model 19 LEDs feature standard connectors. For more details, contact Truck-Lite, 1310 E Elmwood Ave, Falconer NY 14733.
