Lumileds has launched a new line of Philips MasterDuty headlight bulbs specifically designed for Class 2-8 medium and heavy duty trucks. According to the company, the bulbs are designed to handle rough terrain and damaged pavement while providing protection against mechanical shock. The bulbs should also offer a battery life of up to 550 hours.
The bulbs were designed to withstand the bumps and uneven road surfaces frequently traveled by medium and heavy vehicles, the company noted. MasterDuty headlights have been designed to withstand a wide range of vibration frequencies and are constructed with high-performance glass that withstands changes in temperature and pressure, Lumileds added.
“We developed the Philips MasterDuty range to provide commercial vehicles and fleets with an extremely durable bulb that helps reduce maintenance costs,” said Aubry Baugh, Product Marketing Manager, Lumileds. “The incredibly long life of MasterDuty headlights also helps protect drivers from the legal liability of racing with just one headlight.”
Philips MasterDuty headlight programs include eight SKUs offering coverage for H1, H7, H11, 9003, 9005, 9006, H13 9008 and HIR2 9012 headlight applications.
