Narva shines more light on the road ahead


New Ultima LED driving lights boast 30 per cent additional light

Narva shines more light on the road ahead
Narva's Ultima LED MK2 range is claimed to offer a 20 per cent longer beam that previous models.

 

It was back in 2017 when Narva launched its Ultimate LED 215 range with a hybrid beam pattern.

However, over the last several years, Narva says its engineering team has worked hard to develop a worthy successor to the range. The result is the Ultima LED Mk2 range which is offering 30 per cent additional light over its predecessors, as well as a 20 per cent longer beam.

Narva says the improved lighting performance is complemented by a range of bold new bezel colours to keep up with new vehicle trends. There are also ‘Black Edition’ kit options that make even greater visual impact. Engineered to be brighter and bolder, Narva points out that its exciting new Ultima L.E.D Mk2 range is initially available in the 215 and more compact 180 variants.

To achieve the extra performance, Narva explains that each light benefits from higher output Osram LEDs (24 x 5 Watt for Ultima 180 Mk2 and 33 x 5 Watt for Ultima 215 Mk2), producing 15,000 raw lumens and 1 lux of brightness at up to 812 metres per pair in the Ultima 180 Mk2 and 21,780 raw lumens and 1 lux of brightness at up to 1093 metres per pair in the Ultima 215 Mk2.

As well as achieving this output, the Ultima Mk2 range is said to benefit from improved colour rendering index (CRI) performance, leading to more natural light output (5700 deg. colour temperature), which improves depth perception and reduces eye fatigue. Both lights also include an LED front position pipe for added visibility and safety during daylight hours.

Along with providing users with incredible lighting performance, the new Ultima Mk2 range is engineered and manufactured to the highest standards to ensure reliability and durability in Australia’s most demanding conditions.

The Ultima LED MK2 range is initially available in the 215, as well as the compact 180 variants.

Both Ultima Mk2 lights feature pressure die-cast aluminium housings, Gore-Tex breather vent and Active Thermal Management System which Narva says offers superior heat dissipation. Also standard is a hard-coated UV-resistant and virtually unbreakable polycarbonate lens and lens protector, as well as a pressure die-cast mounting bracket incorporating convenient three bolt mounting with stainless steel hardware.

To minimise vibration and provide smoother vision on rough road surfaces, the lights are equipped with a polyurethane mounting and suspension system, while an integrated DT connector ensures uninterrupted power supply. Additionally, the lights offer tool-free vertical adjustment for greater convenience.

Narva states that these features help provide the new Ultima Mk2 range with an impressive IP66 and IP67 rating for water and dust ingress and the ability to operate efficiently within extreme temperature variations of -40 deg. C to 65 deg. C.

The lights are available in Stainless Satin single lamp packs that include a 180 or 215 Mk2 light with stainless steel trim and interchangeable slate grey, red and yellow trim options, plus clear lens protector. Black Edition single lamp packs are also available for both size lights and come standard with a slate grey trim and black adjustment knob, along with special hyper green and electric blue interchangeable trim options plus clear lens protector.

Alternatively, Narva says there are comprehensive Black Edition twin kits for both the 180 and 215 Mk2 driving lights are also available, containing a pair of lamps, slate grey plus hyper green and electric blue trims, a heavy duty ‘plug and play’ wiring harness, clear and dark tinted ‘Stealth’ lens covers and everything that’s needed for hassle-free installation.

The Stealth lens covers feature a unique, dark-tinted design that is said to allow the signature position light pipe to shine through for maximum visual impact.

Narva marketing manager, Jake Smith, says the company had worked hard to develop a worthy successor to the hugely popular original Ultima range.

"It’s often said that a sequel rarely measures up to the original, but in the case of the new Ultima Mk2 High-Powered LED range, our engineering team has done an exceptional job in further pushing the boundaries of LED driving lamp technology and performance.

"To achieve an extra 30 per cent light output and 20 per cent more penetration over models that were already among the market leaders is a fantastic result and we’re confident that this range will really impress buyers," Smith says.

"Given the lights’ combination of volume and range, they’re suitable for a wide range of applications and we anticipate a strong take-up particularly from road transport operators as well as from the rural community, recreational off-roaders and the 4x4 competition scene."

Narva states that its new Ultima L.E.D Mk2 range is backed by a 5-year LED warranty and can be purchased from leading automotive, four wheel drive and transportation outlets nation-wide.

Narva will have its products on display at the 2021 Brisbane Truck Show, stand 110 in the Foyer of the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.
