Austin, TX (October 16, 2023) – Clarience Technologies, whose safety and performance-enhancing solutions have helped advance commercial transportation for decades, introduced a new in-line configuration option of its popular Road Ready Light Out Detection System (LODS), expanding coverage of Road Ready LODS to now include every trailer type. The announcement, made in a presentation today to the media at the 2023 American Trucking Associations Management Conference and Exhibition in Austin, is the latest from its Road Ready and Truck-Lite brands that the company says underscores its longstanding commitment to bringing Total Visibility to transportation.
“Each of our companies strive to innovate and develop products that address the evolving needs and challenges of our customers,” said Mark Johnson, executive vice president and Chief Marketing Officer at Clarience Technologies. “We are constantly looking for ways to improve our products’ functionality, efficiency, and safety. These two products are examples of how we achieve that goal.”
Road Ready Offering Expanded Options for Trailer Light-out Detection
Road Ready Light Out Detection System (LODS) is a telematics-enabled solution that monitors the trailer’s lighting system and alerts the fleet of any light outages. The new option uses a redesigned LODS device installed “in-line” on the trailer’s wiring harness which allows it to be mounted below the frame rails, making it ideal for customers running flatbed, tank, or chassis/intermodal trailers where there is no nosebox.
“We now offer customers a choice of LODS solutions that can fit any trailer type,” said Dane Hollar, senior vice president of sales, Road Ready. “Both solutions use technology to improve safety and DOT compliance through better visibility, which is the foundation of the Road Ready brand.”
Truck-Lite Sets the Industry Standard for Durable LED Lighting on Commercial Trucks and Tractors
Continuing to showcase its commitment to Total Visibility, Clarience Technologies also highlighted the classic design of the lens on its most popular Truck-Lite products, the Super 44 and Model 60 lights. The lenses on these lights, first engineered with polycarbonate materials in 1958, continue to deliver impact resistance as polycarbonate boasts thirty times the strength of acrylic. Truck-Lite engineers introduced epoxy technology to the design in 1994 to encapsulate the internal circuitry providing added protection against impact, vibration, corrosion, and water. This helps ensure that the light continues to operate – even in the rare instances where a small amount of water could penetrate a sealed lamp. Though the design of the lens has been refined in the years since, the core technology of the lens has continued to stand the test of time.
“As our customers have a number of options when selecting their lights, it is important for them to know not all lights are alike,” said Jon Stineman, president, Truck-Lite U.S. “We are committed to delivering the best products in the industry because we, much like our customers, we demand the best.”
