Optronics International announced Dec. 8 the introduction of its MCL80RCB LED combination ID light bar & utility light. The new lamp enables a vehicle’s light bar to serve double duty as a utility and scene light, whether it’s mounted high or low.

With a mounting position high on the back of a vehicle, the lamp is able to illuminate a wide area below and behind it with white LED light. Mounted on trailers where the ID bar is close to the ground, the lamp provides greater visibility and safety with a tighter and more intense beam pattern.

Generally, when working in, on, or around the rear end of a vehicle in lowlight conditions, separate utility or work lamps are needed to light the work area. Extra lights require mounting, routing holes, wiring, and careful lamp placement so as not to interfere with vehicle operation, doors, and personnel.

The MCL80RCB LED LED combination ID light bar & utility light incorporates two seven-diode white LED utility lights. The thin, streamlined body of the lamp measures just 15.5 inches in length, 1.313 inches in width, and 0.75 inches in thickness, including its attached, closed-cell foam gasket.

The surface-mount, hardwired lamp is easy to install and its integrated utility lights can be operated with a standard switch. The lamp requires just two fasteners for mounting and one wiring hole with a 0.59-inch diameter.

The lamp’s lens and housings are made of tough polycarbonate material that is sonically welded. The lamp employs a solid-state, surface-mount device (SMD) design that protects its electronics against moisture, shock, and vibration.

The MCL80RCB LED LED combination ID light bar & utility light is expected to be in stock and available for shipping in the first quarter of 2021.
