Whelen Engineering announces a Product End of Life (EOL) notice for the Hundred Series, M-Series, and SurfaceMax™ Back-up, Brake/Tail/Turn, and Turn/Marker Lightheads. With this notice we are also excited to share improvements to our newly redesigned B/T/T, Back-up, and Turn/Marker product families.
Supply chain challenges and LED technology advancement provided Whelen the opportunity to build in additional product improvements. The new design provides a solution to ongoing component availability issues facing manufacturers, providing users with a stable supply and improved lead times. As a result of these updates, current models will be discontinued.
The newly redesigned models have advanced LED technology including an upgraded lens design which achieves IP67 rating and 12/24 VDC operation. The integration of Whelen’s patented Potting Dam Technology creates a watertight seal around the unit’s stranded wires, preventing wire wicking and corrosion. New models have an identical footprint to the original, allowing for the same ease of installation.
Product models listed in this Market Advisory are facing EOL effective September 9, 2022 and will no longer be available to order after this date. Superseding models will be available to order on April 1, 2022.
