Optronics International broadened its Opti-Brite LED Headlamp family today with the introduction of its new five-by-seven-inch, combination high- and low-beam headlamp. Like the other headlamps in the Opti-Brite Series, the new lamps are designed with a unique retroflective LED light beam technology that enables them to project an optimized beam pattern conducive to superior driver comfort and performance. The lamps also feature the Opti-Brite’s signature LED conspicuity array that sets the lamps apart from all other LED headlamps on the road.

The LEDs face backward, toward metallic parabolic reflectors that are precision-engineered to create superior high- and low-beam photometric characteristics. Optronics’ advanced reflector geometry emits a tightly controlled blue-white light beam that approximates the color temperature of the sun’s natural light. The light quality makes it easier for the human eye to see the road, thus enhancing safety while reducing eye fatigue.

The headlamps are engineered to accommodate from 9- to 33-volt electrical systems and have an expected service life of 30,000 hours, 15 to 30 times that of halogen and HID headlamps. All have highly durable powder-coated, die-cast aluminum housings with tough polycarbonate lenses and a special coating that protects them against the elements and cracking, fading and yellowing from exposure to UV radiation.

Opti-Brite LED Headlamps come in four formats that fit a broad range of vehicle makes and models. The new HLL70HLB lamp fits five-by-seven-inch rectangular formats and has both high- and low-beam functions built in. The HLL93HLB series fits a seven-inch round format and also has both high- and low-beam functions built in. The HLL79HB high-beam lamps and HLL78LB low-beam lamps fit four-by-six-inch rectangular formats and are compatible with four-lamp systems with separate, dedicated high-beam and low-beam lamps.

Opti-Brite LED Headlamps come in hardwired versions with a three-wire design with 6.5-inch leads and with standard H4 three-blade connectors for plug-and-play speed and simplicity when retrofitting any vehicle.
