Rigid Industries gets rough with testing standards, Osram LEDs provide impressive results

Rigid Industries, a leader in forward projecting LED lighting, partnered with Osram Opto Semiconductors to provide tough, extreme tested products for its new off-road night vision lighting series – the E- and SR-series. These new Rigid infrared (IR) night vision lights complement the full line of Rigid’s visible LED off-road lights. Both versions feature Osram’s high quality, high reliability, infrared LEDs (IRED) and visible LEDs.

unnamed (10)The new night vision systems from Rigid feature IR Oslon Black LEDs, supplied by Osram Opto Semiconductors because they are similarly tough with superior reliability. IR Oslon Black delivers IR illumination for night vision operation and, with more than 1W at 1A total optical flux,  it is the most powerful single chip, high power IRED available today.

Before the new products launched, Rigid engineers conducted a series of deliberately intense stress tests to prove that the lights can endure the most extreme real-world off-road conditions. To simulate what can happen when you mix hard-core off-road driving with intense dirt trails and harsh environmental elements, Rigid pushes its products to the breaking point to see how they perform through a series of abusive tests that include using hammers and saws. This type of testing ensures Rigid’s products far exceed the performance needed for a tough and reliable off-road lighting application. Read More→

7075-LockNLoad-HiRes-MediaRancho Cordova, CA - Take the bind out of the radius arm suspension and add additional safety features with The MetalCloak “Lock-n-Load” (Patent Pending ID# 14/469,438)!  The unique design of the passenger side replacement Lock-n-Load control arm allows you to “lock” the control arm in a static “solid” state for added on-road safety and lively road handling.  “Load” the arm to unleash the capabilities of your radius arm suspension – reducing bushing and bracket load like a 3-link but with the added safety of four attachment points at the axle!
