Truck-Lite says it designed its 7-inch LED headlamps for the heavy-duty commercial vehicle market. The round white headlamps, which can be aimed using standard mechanical aiming equipment, meet or exceed all applicable Department of Transportation requirements and all Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards pertaining to headlights, according to the company, and can replace any standard 7-inch round headlight within 24-volt applications.

Truck-Lite says the LED light output of the headlamp, which uses 10 Luxeon LEDs as its light source, is brighter than traditional glass beam headlights, resulting in greater light projection and a crisper, whiter light output than halogen-sealed or bulb-replaceable lamps. While a typical headlamp may be rated to last 400 hours, Truck-Lite says its LED headlamps exceed that by as much as 50 times. The Luxeon technology used in the headlamps is designed to offer improved visibility over conventional incandescents, as the color temperature of the assembly is about 5,000 degree K, far closer to sunlight than incandescent or halogen lamps.

Truck-Lite says the LED headlamp, which uses diode technology from Philips Lumileds, features potted circuit board assemblies for added shock and vibration resistance and polycarbonate lenses that have 30 times more impact strength than glass. For more information, go to
