LED Headlamps Increase Snowplow Visibility


4/12/2019

SnowEx introduces its new STORM SEEKER LED Headlamps with EdgeView Technology, providing one of the widest, fullest and farthest light patterns of any snow plow lights on the market. Featuring a durable design and best-in-class LED output to simulate daylight, the headlamps produce up to twice the light output of halogen bulbs to increase safety and productivity while plowing.

The STORM SEEKER LEDs offer exclusive EdgeView Technology, which features a dedicated lens and LED bulb that directs light through the outer edge of each headlamp. The design provides a full 180 degrees of light visibility from plow edge to plow edge for the best all-around view of the plow’s operating environment. Even without EdgeView active, the LEDs offer a superior light pattern that illuminates wider and farther than other headlamps.

To combat snow and ice build-up, the LED headlamps boast an intuitive heating system that senses temperature on the lens and only heats when necessary. To help prevent ice bridging, the headlamp structure is designed with a forward sloped lens and has no bezel, a common point for ice to begin forming on other lamps.

Built with durability in mind and compliant with FMVSS 108, the headlamps offer a compact design that is less prone to shock and vibration while plowing. Featuring a completely sealed, weatherproof housing to stand up to harsh weather conditions, the headlamps have undergone thorough testing including hot and cold thermal shocking, cold water submersion, corrosion tests, and impact simulations.

The new STORM SEEKER LED headlamps will be offered as an option for SnowEx truck plows.
