Optronics International has introduced its new UCL41 Series Scene Light. The new lamp is the first of a new style of directional scene lighting that casts a more focused beam of LED light in a direction that can be accurately defined simply by its placement. Priced at roughly half the cost of traditional nine-diode scene lights, the UCL41 Series Scene Light uses 12 diodes and advanced optical engineering to focus its optimal beam pattern, according to an announcement.
Until now, scene lights have generally just flooded an area with illumination, without regard for how wide or deep the scene may be. The result of ultra-wide beam pattern scene lighting has been less focused and less usable light in the areas that may be most critical –– those directly adjacent to the vehicle.
Optronics’ new UCL41 Series Scene Light 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.
“Our new UCL41 Series Scene Light is the first to be engineered with the scene in mind,” says Brett Johnson, president and CEO of Optronics International. “Our design enables the engineers and those using a vehicle to configure a custom lighting scenario that best fits the specific need.”
The low-profile surface-mount lamp is easy to install and requires only two mounting fasteners. 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 UCL41 Series Scene Light is a highly versatile and competitively priced alternative to current scene light offerings,” Johnson says. “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 powerful lamp measures just 8.7 in. in width and 2.95 in. in height. The lamp is only 1.59 in. thick when installed, including its mounting plate and bezel. 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 the lamp to cast its unique 45-degree beam pattern.
The new UCL41 Series Scene Lights are in stock and available now. Lenses and housings are made of tough polycarbonate material that is sonically welded, and the base is made of sturdy aluminum. The lamps employ a solid-state, surface-mount device (SMD) design that protects their electronics against moisture, shock and vibration. Like all LED products from Optronics, these lamps come with no-hassle, one-diode lifetime warranty protection that will replace the lamp if even one diode fails.
