Optronics International, a manufacturer and supplier of heavy-duty LED vehicle lighting, recently introduced its new UCL41 Series Scene Light.
The new lamp is the first of a new style of directional scene lighting that casts a focused beam of LED light in a direction that can be accurately defined by its placement. Priced at roughly half the cost of traditional nine-diode scene lights, the UCL41 uses 12 diodes and advanced optical engineering to focus its beam pattern.
“Our new UCL41 Series Scene Light is the first to be engineered with the scene in mind,” said Brett Johnson, president and CEO of Optronics. “Our design enables the engineers and those using a vehicle to configure a custom lighting scenario that best fits the specific need.”
Until now, scene lights generally flooded an area with illumination without regard for the width or depth of the scene. The result of ultra-wide beam pattern scene lighting is less focused and usable light in critical areas directly adjacent to the vehicle.
Optronics’ new UCL41 is engineered to deliver an intense white LED beam pattern at a 45-degree angle to its mounting position. The lamp enables OEMs, bodybuilders and end users to determine the size and shape of the scene they prefer to illuminate. Mounting the lamp higher creates a larger scene, while mounting it lower creates a smaller scene, and the lamps can be rotated before mounting to deliver light that is oriented to a vehicle’s front, rear and sides.
“The UCL41 Series Scene Light is a highly versatile and competitively priced alternative to current scene light offerings,” Johnson said. “With its unique precision optics, the UCL41 is a new low-cost, high-value option for work trucks, emergency, fire and rescue applications, as well as recreational vehicles.”
The low-profile surface-mount lamp requires only two mounting fasteners for installation. Once the UCL41 is secured, a black- or chrome-coated plastic bezel snaps into position, giving the lamp a clean finished appearance.
The UCL41 Series Scene Light accommodates both 12- and 24-volt electrical systems and is IP67 rated. The lamp comes complete with a 6-inch hard-wired lead and ground wires, and requires only a three-quarter-inch hole for the wire feed.
The lamp is 8.7 inches wide and 2.95 inches tall, and is only 1.59 inches thick when installed. In order to maintain the lamp’s low profile, the UCL41’s lens is designed with a 15-degree angle, relying on its advanced optical design to enable it to cast a unique 45-degree beam pattern.
Optronics products are available in the U.S. and Canada through the company’s extensive distribution network of more than 12,000 convenient distribution locations.
