Lumileds has launched a new line of Philips MasterDuty headlight bulbs made especially for medium- and heavy-duty Class 2-8 trucks. According to the company, the bulbs are designed to handle rough terrain and damaged roadways while providing protection against mechanical shock. The bulbs are also expected to deliver a runtime of up to 550 hours.
The bulbs have been engineered to withstand the bumps and uneven road surfaces frequently traveled by medium- and heavy-duty vehicles, the company noted. MasterDuty headlights have been designed to withstand a wide range of vibration frequencies and are built with a high-performance glass that withstands temperature and pressure changes, Lumileds added.
“We developed the Philips MasterDuty line to provide commercial vehicles and fleets with an extremely durable bulb that helps save money on maintenance costs,” Aubry Baugh, product marketing manager at Lumileds, said. “The incredibly long life of MasterDuty headlights also helps protect drivers from the legal liability of running with just one headlight.”
The Philips MasterDuty headlight programs features eight SKUs offering coverage for H1, H7, H11, 9003, 9005, 9006, H13 9008, and HIR2 9012 forward lighting applications.
