Phillips Industries Adds New Lighting Products for Commercial Trucks

Phillips Industries of Santa Fe Springs, Calif., now offers new lighting products to its PermaLite XT family. The new lights include a 4.0-inch round reverse light and a ¾-inch round hardwired light for multiple applications. New adapter plates for upgrading to ¾-inch LED lights have also been added.

The 4.inch round clear reverse light with BoardFree technology and nine diodes, comes in either flange or grommet mount. They can be mounted in any direction and still meet SAE R and DOT specifications. Constructed of ABS and acrylic material, the lights offer superior durability and are impact resistant, as well as resistant to corrosion, harsh chemicals and UV exposure. The integrated male three-pin AMP connector is sealed and greased to keep corrosion causing contaminants out.

The ¾-inch round hardwired lights are being introduced as an alternative where space is restricted. They are constructed with a polycarbonate lens and the housing is sealed to protect the three diodes inside from outside contaminants and moisture. The new lights are available with a variety of lens colors and wiring configurations for single or dual function marker/clearance, auxiliary and license lighting applications. All hardwired lights include their correlating mounting grommet.

The 2.0-inch and 2.5-inch mounting adapter plates constructed of non-corrosive polycarbonate material are being introduced to upgrade from traditional 2.0-inch and 2.5-inch flange style lights to smaller, more efficient LED lights.
