Heise LED Lighting® Introduces New Lightbars with Daytime Running Lights

Holly Hill, Fla. –  December 19, 2018 – Heise LED Lighting® by Metra Electronics®  announces a new series of lightbars with daytime running lights. The DRL Series is available now in 8”, 14”, 22”, 30”, 40” and 50” dual-row straight LED lightbars. They have an integrated daytime running light in the center along the entire length of the bar, with a clean white light that provides additional visibility.

The daytime running lights can be lit without the off-road lights being on and are powered by 6V to 24V circuits, using new 3-wire DT3 and ATP3 plugs and pigtails. The DRL Series is rated IP67 with a military grade metal breather port that allows moisture to escape. They are built to last, featuring Heise’s proprietary torture-tested heavy-duty construction with a virtually unbreakable polycarbonate lens, backed by a limited lifetime warranty.

The new DRL Series will be on display with Metra Electronics at CES booth 5211 in the North Hall from January 8-11, 2019 in the Las Vegas Convention Center. Visit for additional product specifications and ordering information.
