We’re very excited to earn a partnership with a well-respected industry leader like Timpte Inc. – Marcus Hester
TULSA, Okla. (PRWEB) May 04, 2021
Optronics International, a leading manufacturer of vehicle harnesses, electronic control systems and LED lighting for the global transportation industry, announced the introduction of its new 1 1/4-inch MCL16 LED Marker/Clearance Light today. Timpte, Inc. will be the first to use the new light on their dry bulk commodity trailers, and Optronics lighting will now come standard across the board on all Timpte trailers, including the 2022 Super Hopper model trailers.
“We’re very excited to earn a partnership with a well-respected industry leader like Timpte Inc.,” Marcus Hester, vice president of sales and marketing for Optronics International, said. “We’re looking forward to the honor of having our 1 1/4-inch MCL16 LED Marker/Clearance Light on Timpte’s 2022 Super Hopper and to seeing Optronics’ high-performance LED lighting on new Timpte trailers.”
Headquartered in David City, Nebraska, Timpte focuses on designing and building lightweight, dependable, customized trailers, and is the best-selling dry bulk commodity trailer manufacturer in North America. The company specializes in agriculture, fertilizer, energy and aggregate sectors, and some of their trailers feature as many as 102 marker/clearance lights for enhanced style and safety.
The 6-diode MCL16 Series lights are hard wired and include separate grounding wires and a PVC gromet. Dual-function models are available for supplemental stop and turn functions. MCL16 Series lamps include models featuring a yellow lens, a red lens, a clear lens that is yellow when illuminated, and a clear lens that is red when illuminated.
“Timpte started shipping trailers with Optronics LED lighting in March of this year,” said Hester. “The move to Optronics’ LED lights will make Timpte trailers more visible, and because Optronic LED lights commonly have life spans of between 50,000 to 100,000 hours, those who purchase and own Timpte trailers won’t have to worry about lighting issues.”
The lamp’s lens and housing are made of tough polycarbonate material that is sealed and waterproof. The lamp employs a solid-state, surface-mount device (SMD) design that protects its 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.
Some versions of the new 1 1/4-inch MCL16 LED Marker/Clearance Light are in stock now, and all are expected to be in stock and available for shipping by the end of the second quarter of 2021.
Optronics products are available in the U.S. and Canada through the company’s extensive distribution network of more than 20,000 convenient distribution locations.
