Optronics MCL97 Series LED Identification Light Bar 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 of each light 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 - MCL97RB Review

Today we are going to show you Optronics Sealed 3 Light Truck and Trailer Identification LED Light Bar, part number MCL97RB. This light bar has 3 individual MCL95RB lights. Inside each light are 3 LEDs for a total of 9 LEDs that draw .058 amps at 12.8 volts.

Its designed to surface mount using mounting holes that are 8 1/2 inches on center. Its a single wire design meaning it will ground through the hardware used to mount the light, and you will get your power on the power wire lead. Next we will hook up the light to a power supply to show you how it looks. We will clip our brown wire to the bracket, and connect our power wire to our power lead on our power supply. Next we will turn off the overhead lights so you can see how bright the light is. And thats it for Optronics Sealed 3 Light Truck and Trailer Identification LED Light Bar, part number MCL97RB.

excellent product of great quality. etrailer is an excellent source for my needs. 335820

Bright, easy to install, grounds through the mounting screws. I wish the screws were higher quality, but otherwise everything worked great. 86874

Had to replace my old lamp tail bar so I chose this LED style unit. It is a lot brighter then the old one and with the low profile it should not get damaged as fast as the old lamp one did. And with the screwed on lamps they won't be falling out like the lamps did before either. 71452

by:

Repeated dunkings in salt water haven't had any effect on this light. It works as well now as it did the day I installed it. I did have to drill a couple of new holes to align with the fastener pattern which stretched the installation time to 20 minutes, but otherwise it was very easy to install. 394586

It has been less than one year and two out of the three lights on this light bar have gone out. I'm pretty disappointed in the fact I replaced my whole trailer with submersible LED lights so this would not keep happening and here we are again. 495124

I just installed the LED lights, so far so good. I won't know until my trailer lights go underwater a few times whether or not they keep the water out as advertised. 45271

Great light, this completes the rewiring and replacement if the old incandescent lights. 95416


Comments

The light I purchased are working out great. Last summer while driving through Utah a State Trooper pulled along side of me when I pulled into a rest stop.He asked where I purchased the LED light set and I told him. He knew my trailer was a 2000 and he had a 2001, and was tires or replacing the old incandescent lights.Next I would like to update the lights on my 2006 GMC 34 T truck.

Fit perfectly on my boat trailer in place of the original incadecent lights. They are nice and bright.only difference is this light grounds through the frame instead of a separate wire. Best part-time more bulb issues! 367763

I received my LED lights for my trailer today from etrailer .com. Shipping was very fast. They bolted right up to the old holed that are on the trailer. Installation was very easy. I like the features of LED lighting. They take less electricity and are much brighter than conventional lighting. I know they will be much safer and look better than the old lights I had on it. 661154

by:

I've installed and hooked up power to these lights and they appear to be of very good quality. They're made in Taiwan which, in my opinion, is way better than china made stuff. These lights look very nice and are bright. I'll have to dunk the jetski trailer in water to see if the lights survive but I'm very optimistic! 555459

Nice lights. I went with these cause there not to wide. Had to buy marker lights separately bu no big deal there. 548828



- MCL97RB
by:

This was a great product to replace the old light that usually had at least one of the 3 bulbs not working because of a bad connection in the socket due to corrosion. The mounting holes even lined up so I did not have to drill new holes and the pig tale wire was plenty long enough to make installation a snap. 547692

Item fit exactly as described in 8.5" mounting. I have to say, switching to LED is the only way to go. Bright, sealed and worry free as long as you do your electrical connections properly.

Do you have a question about this Trailer Light?


  • Single Wire ID Light Bar for a Boat Trailer Over 80 Inches Wide
  • Your old ID bar must have grounded through its mounting hardware since it only had the one wire. ID bar # MCL97RB also has just one wire and grounds through the mounting hardware. This is an LED light so it will draw much less power than incandescent lights. If your boat trailer is aluminum though a jumper ground wire should be attached between the frame and mounting hardware and attached to a steel surface or the main trailer connector ground. A ground issue is why the other light was...

  • Can Sealed, 3-Light Truck Trailer Identification LED Light Bar # MCL97RB be Mounted Horizontally
  • I spoke with my contact at Optronics and yes, the Sealed, 3-Light Truck, Trailer Identification LED Light Bar, # MCL97RB, can be mounted on the roof of your horse trailer. When mounted horizontally, the light will be visible from the rear of the trailer but won't be at the same intensity as if it was mounted on the rear of the trailer facing back. Please keep in mind that since the intensity of the light will be decreased when mounted on the roof, it will not meet DOT regulations.

  • How Does the Sealed, 3-Light Truck, Trailer Identification LED Light Bar MCL97RB Ground
  • The lightbar part # MCL97RB that you referenced does ground through the mounting hardware. If one of the wires on your trailer's currently lighting is for the ground you could run it to the mounting hardware of the light or you could not use it. If you check out the review video I attached you can see our demo guy run the white ground pin straight to the metal frame of the light to ground it. If where you want to install this light bar is a metal surface that touches the frame of the...

  • Information About Optronics Sealed 3-Light Identification LED Light Bar
  • The Sealed, 3-Light Identification LED Light Bar, part # MCL97RB is a single wire light. The item is grounded through the mounting hardware and the base. You have one wire that is attached to your power source. The mounting holes are spaced 8-1/2 inches on center. I have attached a product review video you can check out that explains this in the demonstration.

  • Difference Between the MCL97RB and MCL97RPG Optronics Identification Light Bars
  • Yes, the only difference between these light bars is that the # MCL97RPG has the 0.180 male bullet at the end of the wire and the # MCL97RB just has a regular wire you'd use a butt connector like part # DW05744-5 for the installation. Other than that everything else is the same. I have attached review videos and photos for you to reference the differences as well.
