Optronics Light Dimensions

Sonically Sealed, Waterproof Trailer Light

The waterproof construction of this light makes it ideal for use on trailers that may be submerged, like a boat trailer. The housing and lens are sonically sealed together to create a single unit, which means that water will not get into the light and damage the diodes or circuit board.


P2-Rated or P3-Rated Lights

Diagram of light spread for P2 rated light

A P2-rated or P3-rated light produces a 45-degree angle of light to either side of its centerline for a total of 90 degrees of coverage. This beam pattern can be seen straight on, but it cannot be seen clearly from the side. So this type of light can be used as either a side marker light or a clearance light, but it cannot function as both. If you need both functions, then you must install 2 separate lights on your trailer - one as a front or rear clearance light and one as a side marker light.

Video Transcript for Optronics Trailer Lights - Clearance Lights - MCL48AB Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number MCL48AB. This is the Optronics micro-flex LED amber side marker light. The amber PC-rated light is going to function as both clearance and side marker light, as well as mid-ship turn signal. The light must be mounted at a 45-degree angle. LEDs are great replacements for incandescent lights. They last a lot longer, they're much more efficient. You don't have to worry about replacing bulbs, and you don't have to worry about brittle filaments.

This unit's going to feature as sealed, waterproof, housing and linge 00:00:30 unit. It has a surface bound design. You can see the mount holes right here. If we take a measurement, the distance between the mount holes, that's going to give us a measurement of about 4 3/4 of an inch. It's going to include all the wiring back here. The white wires are going to be for ground, black wires are going to be your power supply; it's going to be the lead wire.

Your red wire's going to be allowing you to use this as a mid-ship turn signal. It's going to contain 16 amber LEDs. Earlier I mentioned that it is PC-rated. What that means is that the light beam emitted from a light with a PC-rating can easily and clearly be seen when you're standing directly in front of the light, as well as when you're standing on either side of the light. Here in the front it's going to contain 4 LEDs or 4 diodes, and it's going to have 12 other diodes that surround those main diodes. Those are angled. That way you can see it easily and clearly from the side.

Taking the measurements of the overall dimensions, it's going to give us an overall length of around 6 inches, overall width of around 2 1/4 of an inch, overall depth, it's going to measure about 1 3/8ths of an inch. This light draws 0.8 amps at 12.8 Volts. It is Department of Transportation approved, and Optronics is going to put a lifetime warranty on the LEDs. Let's go ahead and hook it up to our external power source. That way you can see what it looks like with power running into it. Let's go ahead and make our connections here, and then I can show you the functions of the light.

This light sends out a nice consistent signal. Again, LED system. You can see all the diodes in there; again, amber LED light. We apply the turn signal. You see how that illuminates for a brighter signal output. Then when the turn signals are not being activated, it goes back to function as that side marker and clearance light. That's going to do it for our review of part number MCL48AB. This is the Optronics micro-flex LED. .

Etrailer MCL48ab light from Optronics is AWESOME. Comes in AMBER and RED. 16 BRIGHT LED's along with the Miro Flex Technology. (each LED is surrounded in a highly reflective metallic prism) Like todays bright car headlights. 4 bulbs facing forward, 6 shining to the sides, and 6 shining upwards and down. Purchased amber for the trailer to see how bright this was, no getting ready to order 12 for the rear of the trailer. Was going to use Double Bullseye units, now going to use the MCL48AB. Note: there is a different part number if you reference it on the Optronics website. When you come to ETRAILER.COM to purchase it, its the same unit. Great purchase for the money, COOL look to it, solid construction, BRIGHT, great technology. The shipment from Etrailer came quickly and packed properly. 301661

These lights are great! Since installing them, I am amazed how much respect my rig gets. Other motorists used to give me space when I used by turn signals. Now they immediately yield to me and give me the space I need. I am so grateful that I invested in these lights!!! 698433

I order 2 LED side marker lights, 2 chrome bezels and a utility light for my RV. I received the items within 4 days of placing my order and am very happy with the items so far. I have not yet tried to install the items but I am certain they will go together as planned. Everyone at etrailer was professional and communicated well at each step of the order and delivery process. I will recommend eTrailer to all my RV friends if they ever need parts. Thanks to everyone for making this a good experience. 483651

These are the FINEST QUALITY markers I've ever seen. I've replaced many on 3 RVs and nothing touches these for quality even at much higher price!!!! Where are the red ones????? The discription measurements are incorrect though, my ruler measures overall 5 5/8", not 6", which is actually better for my install. The website filter has them incorrectly at 7". 451155

Ask the Experts about this Optronics Trailer Lights

  • Wiring Optronics Mid-Ship Trailer Light to Function Only as Turn Signal
    In order to wire the Optronics Micro-Flex LED Mid-Ship Light # MCL48AB that you referenced so that it only functions as a turn signal light, you will just need to add a converter like the Curt # C56196 to separate the turn signal from the brake circuit. The yellow wire on the converter input side will tap into the left turn signal circuit on the trailer, while the green wire will tap into the right turn signal circuit. Then on the output side the yellow wire will go to the Mid-Ship light...

  • Availability of Side Marker and Turn Signal Clearance Lights for Side of 5th Wheel Trailer
    We actually have a few different options for exactly what you are wanting to do. Just choose which one you want based off of the style of the light itself! Miro-Flex LED - # MCL48AB Optronics LED - # MCL32ATB Optronics LED Mid-Ship - # STL75AB GloLight LED Mid-Ship - # STL175AMFB Each of these options functions as a clearance light as well as a side marker light plus they are not recess mounted so they will stick out some. I have attached review videos that you can check out for...

  • Amber Clearance Light Recommendation Similar In Size to Glo-Brite 410X
    Based on dimensions alone the closest we have to your GloBrite 410X is the Miro-Flex LED Trailer Light part # MCL48AB which is 6" x 2-1/4".

  • What Trailer Light Functions Does Trailer Clearance and Side Marker Light # MCL48AB Have
    The Trailer Clearance and Side Marker Light # MCL48AB uses a three wire setup which means that the light has two light intensities. A lower intensity for the running light circuit and a brighter intensity that will come on when the brakes or turn signal is activated. The headlights do not need to be on for the blinker to work. I attached a review video for more info on this as well.

  • Tail Light Converter to Separate Trailer Stop and Turn Lights With Mid-Ship Trailer Light
    In order to add a mid-turn (also called a Mid-Ship) light such as the Miro-Flex LED Trailer Side Marker Light and Mid-Ship Turn Signal # MCL48AB to your boat trailer you will need to use a converter. The converter you should use is the Curt # C56196 instead of the Tow Ready you referenced because the Curt is compatible with LED lights while the Tow Ready is not. To do this you will need to connect the yellow and green turn signal wires on your trailer to the input side of the converter...

  • Rectangle LED Clearance Light with Both Red and Amber Lenses
    I do have an option for you but the Miro-Flex LED Trailer Side Marker Light and Mid-Ship Turn Signal is not offered with a red lens, only amber part # MCL48AB and clear part # MCL48CAB. For a similar clearance light has turn signal capabilities I recommend the Peterson Piranha LED Trailer Clearance and Side Marker Light w/ Supplemental Turn part # M353R which if you wanted to use this instead is also offered in amber as part # M353A.

  • How Does MiroFLEX LED Trailer Light part # MCL48AB Wire to be a Turn Signal and Running Light
    Yes, you are absolutely correct. To wire up the Miro-Flex LED Trailer Side Marker Light # MCL48AB to work as a blinker and running light you would need to run the stop/turn signal wires to the red wires, the running lights to the black wires and the ground to the white and it will work like it is supposed to.

  • How Would Clearance Lights Get Ran As Additional Turn Signals
    Your trailer would have to be wired up with separate turn signals from the brake lights to be able to use the part # MCL48AB as a turn signal. Most trailers are wired for having the two circuits carried on the same wires. To separate the circuits you would need to use the part # RM-732 which would wire to your trailers turn signal circuits and would give you the ability to have both circuits separated. Now to use your current combined trailer taillights like normal you would have...

  • Can Amber Light be Used as Turn Signal on Motorcycle Trailer?
    The Miro-Flex LED Turn Signal # MCL48AB can be used as an amber turn signal with your motorcycle trailer. It will work alongside the tail lights you referenced, Aero Pro - LH # STL37RPG and Aero Pro - RH # STL36RB, with the wiring you already have on your trailer. I've added links to review videos of these products for you to check out as well.

  • Recommendation For LED Replacement Lights That Are Bright And Waterproof

However, many of our customers who have replaced their single bulb lights love the Miro-Flex LED Trailer Side Marker Light, Item # MCL48AB. Many customers have commented how nice and bright they are as well as waterproof. I highly recommend them and believe you will be impressed by their toughness, brightness, and overall look.

  • Functions of Wire Colors on Miro-Flex Clearance Light part # MCL48AB
    For the Miro-Flex part # MCL48AB the white wire is ground, the red wire is stop/turn, and the black wire is the running light circuit.

  • Availability of Submersible Amber Clearance Light that Does Not Require Sealing
    There really isn't an effective way we can recommend to water proof the # 425600 that you referenced. You can try sealing it but since this is not a light that's considered submersible it's not guaranteed you wouldn't have problems. Better option is a light that is submersible like the # MCL48AB which does not require any additional sealing. I also attached a link to a page that has all of the amber sumbersible clearance lights we offer as well.
