Truck-Lite says it has taken a traditional incandescent work lamp and given it a powerful light output with LED technology. With an intense bright, white appearance through the entire voltage range, the company says its LED work lamp comes to full brightness much sooner than the incandescent versions.

The lamp is designed to operate in a 12V environment, but will function at full brightness from 8.5V to 16V, drawing only 1.2 amps compared to the incandescent 2.93 amp draw, according to Truck-Lite. The lamp is suited for general illumination for vehicle maintenance and inspections, but also can extend to numerous other applications such as service lighting needs, yard tractor applications, tractor-trailers, forklifts, agricultural lighting and airport ground-support vehicles.

With a 100,000-hour lamp life, the lamp’s six diodes are encapsulated in epoxy for added protection against moisture and corrosion. The pedestal-mounted product is made of a polycarbonate lens, powder-coated cast-aluminum housing and stainless-steel mounting hardware to help combat corrosion. The robust design stands up well to harsh work conditions, including shock, vibration and direct impact, the company says.
