Dialight recently added the 4-inch by 6-inch LED Low Beam Headlamp to its line of SAE/DOT-approved LED lighting products for buses and other commercial vehicles. Operating at less than 14 watts, the headlamp uses more than 70 percent less energy than conventional halogen headlamps, according to the company. This energy efficiency helps to reduce stress on the vehicle’s electrical system. With Dialight’s proprietary thermal design, the light requires no cooling fans or other moving parts to manage heat, eliminating common failure points.

The unit has a life expectancy of more than 10 full years, seven of those backed by Dialight’s full-replacement warranty. This can save bus operators significant maintenance time and cost over the life of the product. The headlamp also incorporates a reflector-based optics design to enhance visibility in adverse weather conditions and reduce glare for oncoming traffic. Its rugged aluminum alloy die-cast housing and hard-coated polycarbonate lens make the weatherproof unit impact resistant.
