New Narva Ultima 180 L.E.D Driving Lamps Offer Big Punch in Compact Package
— October 31, 2018
Just over a year since the release of its market-leading, high-powered Ultima 215 L.E.D driving lamps, Narva has added to the family with the launch of its new Ultima, 180 L.E.D models, providing similar light output to the 215s but in a more compact 180mm diameter package.
Making their debut at the recent Melbourne National 4x4 Show, the Ultima 180 lamps feature a hybrid beam pattern and are ideal for off-road and transport applications, developing a white light output (5700°K) that closely resembles natural light, thereby minimising fatigue.
As well as the high light quality, these lights are extremely powerful producing 22,000 raw lumens which are capable of shining a penetrating light down the road up to 600m at 1 Lux (as a pair).
Each light is equipped with 25 x 5W (165W) XP-G2 Cree L.E.Ds and feature highly polished, aluminium, metalised reflectors with precisely scalloped parabolas for superior control and performance. Other benefits of the new lamps include an L.E.D front position light to improve daytime driving visibility and enhance safety.
Due to their more compact dimensions, the lamps are suitable for fitment to a wider range of commercial vehicles, four wheel drives, agricultural and construction equipment and even passenger cars with suitable mounting points.
For superior performance and durability, the lamps feature a tough, die cast aluminium housing and an ‘Active Thermal Management System’ which allow the lights to run harder for longer. The lights also incorporate a ‘Nitto’ breather vent and integrated DT connector, and are fully sealed against water and dust ingress to IP66 and IP67. The front of the lights also benefit from a virtually unbreakable polycarbonate lens and see-through lens protector.
The combination of these features provide the lights with an impressive operating range of between -40°C to 65°C and ensure they will perform reliably in harsh Australian conditions and applications.
This focus on performance and durability extends to the lights’ mounting system which incorporates a pressure die cast mounting bracket, three bolt mounting with stainless steel hardware and a polymer rubber mounting and suspension set-up for resistance to corrugations and bumps.
For additional control and easy adjustment on the road, the lights also benefit from a tool-free vertical adjustment mechanism.
Narva Ultima 180 L.E.Ds are simple to install with everything required for fitment included in the kit along with easy-to-read fitting instructions.
Also included in each kit are four interchangeable coloured trim pieces (blue, black, yellow and red), allowing buyers to customise or personalise the appearance of the light on their vehicle. A stainless-steel bezel comes standard with the lamps, but for those wanting to further develop an individual look, Narva is offering two other bezels (gloss black or chrome-plated) as optional accessories.
Despite their high output, the 9-33V Ultima 180 L.E.Ds feature a modest current draw of only 8.9A at 12V, ensuring minimal strain on vehicle electrical systems.
For peace of mind the Ultima 180 L.E.D lights are backed by a 5-year L.E.D warranty and are available from leading automotive, four wheel drive and transport outlets nationwide.
Prospective buyers wanting to gain further insight into the Ultima 180’s performance first hand prior to purchase, should visit Narva’s online virtual reality experience at www.narva.com.au/vrexperience where they can see the lamps in action.
