Optronics announces new lights

Optronics Introduces Stylish Alternatives to “Penny-Style” Lights

Optronics International, a leading manufacturer of vehicle harnesses, electronic control systems, and LED lighting, has introduced its revolutionary MCL Series Marker/Clearance Lights.

These cutting-edge lights, including the MCL2300, MCL20, and MCL16T models, empower trailer OEMs to create distinctive branded looks for their vehicles while providing extensive customization options for owner-operators.

Dustin Smith, Optronics’ Vice President of Sales, expressed, “The MCL Series Marker/Clearance Lights we’re launching today exemplify our commitment to innovation and meeting the industry’s needs. We’re setting new standards by offering diverse shapes and sizes to differentiate and elevate our customers’ vehicles, all while ensuring a hassle-free installation process.”

Our sponsor FinditParts has a variety of Optronics lights in stock here.

Departing from Traditional Lighting Designs

Departing from traditional designs, Optronics presents marker/clearance lights with geometric shapes, offering customers the choice between round, oval, and rectangular lights. What sets these lights apart is their ability to provide a larger light size while conveniently fitting into a standard 3/4-inch hole, thanks to the included grommet.

Michael Whitman, Director of Production Management for Optronics, highlighted, “The lights are versatile and easily installed without the need for retooling, maintaining the same manufacturing process that our OEMs are accustomed to. Despite their different shapes, they seamlessly fit into the 3/4-inch cutout hole that has become the industry norm, offering an effortless original equipment upgrade or an aftermarket replacement option.”

These PC-rated lamps serve as combination side markers and front or rear clearance lights when mounted at an angle. Their unique geometric optics efficiently disperse light, resulting in an exceptionally bright appearance and providing a reliable, high-quality lighting solution that enhances the overall look of any vehicle.

The new marker/clearance lights cater to a wide range of vehicles and applications, including work trucks, dry vans, reefers, box trucks, and more. With their superior optical design, these lights provide enhanced brightness and visually appealing aesthetics, significantly improving vehicle visibility and overall road presence.

The MCL2300 lamp, equipped with three diodes, features a rectangular design measuring 2.31 inches wide, 1.43 inches tall, and 0.64 inches thick. The MCL20, a three-diode oval marker/clearance light, measures 1.875 inches wide, 1.5 inches tall, and 0.5 inches thick. Standing out with its distinctive fluted lens pattern, the single-diode MCL16T is a round light with a diameter of 1.25 inches and a profile of 1.31 inches. All three lamps come pre-wired and are available in bulk and polypack packaging.

Just the Beginning of this Line Expanding

Smith further added, “And this is just the beginning. We will continue expanding this lighting line, developing future products that incorporate auxiliary features, such as our supplemental turn and stop light functions.”

The lamp lenses are crafted from durable polycarbonate material, ensuring resistance to dust and moisture through sonically welded construction. Employing a solid-state, surface-mount device (SMD) design, the lamps are protected against moisture, shock, and vibration. Like all of Optronics’ LED products, these lamps come with a hassle-free, one-diode lifetime warranty, guaranteeing lamp replacement if even a single diode fails.

The new MCL2300, MCL20, and MCL16T marker/clearance lights are currently in stock and available for immediate shipping.
