Truck-Lite improves gas discharge strobe

Truck-Lite’s new gas discharge emergency warning strobe lamp is an improvement over traditional gas discharge lamps, says the company. The unit uses an inexpensive, cylindrical flash tube and all optics are internal, leaving a smooth, more aerodynamic surface that’s said to be easier to clean and maintain.

External parts are designed for durability and easy maintenance. Bases are powder coated for long life and corrosion resistance. All circuitry is encapsulated for durability. Threaded domes screw on and off for rapid flash tube replacement. Unlike older helical flash tubes, the new cylindrical design works with Truck-Lite’s advanced optics to concentrate light within the critical zone (five degrees above and below horizontal) for greatest effect, says the company.

Truck-Lite emergency strobe lamps, both LED and gas discharge, feature a branch guard option, as the guard is common to all new Truck-Lite emergency strobe lamps. All Truck-Lite strobe lamps can mount flat, threaded on a pipe or with a magnetic base.

Initially, the Truck-Lite gas discharge strobe will be available in amber and soon to follow, interchangeable, screw-on domes in red, blue and clear will be released. The strobe meets or exceeds all requirements of SAE J1318 for Class 1 dual and quad function warning lamps and operates in a wide range of cold and warm temperatures.
