Optronics MCL57 Series 2.5 In Round Sumbersible LED Clearance or Side Marker Light - Amber Lens - 3 LEDs Diagram

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 Lights

Diagram of light spread for P2 rated light

A P2-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.


PL-2 Wiring Connection

Optronics PL-2 Connection

This light has an industry-standard PL-2 connection as pictured above. The light accepts a 2-prong plug (sold separately). The plug connects to 2 of the points on the PL-2 connection for power and ground. And the plug covers the unused third point on the connection to seal it against dirt and moisture.


Recessed-Mount Light

Recessed mount light

Recessed-mount trailer lights install underneath a housing or a grommet, which is often sold separately. These lights will extend into the mounting surface and require that a hole be cut into your trailer.

Video Transcript for Optronics Trailer Lights - Clearance Lights - MCL57AB Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number MCL57AB. This is the Optronics LED Trailer Clearance, or side marker light. It's going to be a sealed waterproof housing and lens unit. It's going to contain three LED's, or three diodes. The LED's are going to make great replacements for incandescent lights. They last longer, they burn brighter, they're much more efficient.

You also don't have to worry about replacing any of the bulbs and you don't have to worry about brittle filaments. Here on the back side we're going to notice a white base or a white housing, along with a two prong connection. This is designed to accept the industry standard two prong plug. That makes it very simple to upgrade from incandescent lights. Now it is going to require the mounting grommet and a plug for complete installation. If you don't already have those you can find those here on our website, they are going to be sold separately.

Take a look at the overall diameter of the light, measuring from edge to edge here at the back, it's going to be about two and a half inches. Overall depth, or the thickness, is going to give some measurement of about eleven sixteenths of an inch. This light is going to draw zero point zero nine sixths amps at twelve point eight volts, and it is department of transportation and SAE compliant. Let's go ahead and hook it up to our external power source, that way we can see what it looks like with power running to it. Simply take our two prong plug, push it in until we get it seated correctly. You can see here that it sends out a really nice consistent, strong signal.

A three diode design, so the multi-diode design is really going to optimize our light output. Again, this is an amber light that's going to function as your clearance or side marker light. That's going to do it for today's review of part number MCL57AB. This is the Optronics LED trailer clearance or side marker light. .

Ask the Experts about this Optronics Trailer Lights

  • Replacement Clearance Lights for a 1977 Rancho El Rae Camping Trailer
    Unfortunately even with the mounting dimension it will be difficult for me to recommend a replacement lense cover for a trailer that old without knowing the brand and model number of the lights you have installed. Therefore, I recommend replacing the lights on your trailer with a set of new LED lights that way you will not have to worry about them for some time. For the circular lights on your trailer I recommend using the LED Trailer Clearance/Side Marker Light part # MCL57RB for red...

  • Red and Amber 2-1/2 Inch Round LED Trailer Lights with Grommet and Plug
    We can get you set up with red and amber clearance lights, grommets, and plugs for your trailers (the prices can be seen on the product pages). The red clearance lights are compatible with either 12 volt or 24 volt systems, though when I spoke with Optronics they told me the matching amber lights are obsolete, which means there are only 12 volt amber LED clearance lights. Here are the parts you will need: - LED Clearance or Side Marker Light - Submersible - 3 Diodes - Red Lens - 12V/24V...
