Truck-Lite has released its Super 80 LED interior trailer lamps, a line of brighter, white LED lamps designed to be direct replacements for most popular sizes and shapes. Each diode in the Super 80 consumes one-third the current of those in the Model 80, but the company says the Super 80’s 10-diode array almost doubles the useable light produced by its predecessor. The Super 80 lamp is up to four times brighter than the incandescent lamps it replaces, according to Truck-Lite.

The rugged aluminum housing weighs in at two pounds and has a recommended cut-out of 16-by-4 inches; they are 1.1-inch thick, compared with 1 5/8-inch fluorescents, which leaves 1/2-inch more clearance for loads or loading equipment, the company points out. The lamp, which protrudes 0.1 inch above the mounting surface, is designed with a potting material that completely encapsulates the LEDs’ circuit board to facilitate resistance to shock, vibration and fluids from cleaning activities. Truck-Lite says the Super 80 will function from 7V to 16V, and its 10 LEDs will reach full brightness at 9.5v, helping to eliminate problems of low voltage.

Additional features and benefits, according to the company, include:

  • Brighter light, which helps better recognition;
  • Flicker-free lighting in all temperatures to help make working in trailers easier and more efficient;
  • Lower-profile rugged housings that help improve durability and reliability while minimizing damage;
  • Standard shapes and sizes to help make retrofit or replacement quick and easy;
  • Solid water-resistant aluminum housing that can be used in cabs or trailers; and
  • Brighter light at lower temperatures, helping to improve vision in refrigerated trailers.
