Oracle Lighting Shipping New Sidetrack LED Lighting System for Wrangler JL & Gladiator JT Models

METAIRE, LA (06.10.2020) – Oracle Lighting has announced the new Sidetrack LED Lighting System for Jeep Wrangler JL (2018-2020) and Jeep Gladiator JT (2020) models is now shipping. The new system (Part5861-504) has an MSRP of $199.99.

“Our new Sidetrack LED Lighting System is a stylish and functional upgrade for Jeep Wrangler JL and Jeep Gladiator models,” said Justin Hartenstein, Oracle Lighting director of development. “This tactical-inspired body cladding is equipped with multi-function integrated LED lights that provide benefits to both driver and passengers.”

The light modules consist of a pair of injection-molded inserts that fit in the original body lines and contour the factory fender vent for a seamless look. Matte black panels provide an aggressive look that adds a rugged and tactical appearance to the Jeep. Installation requires no modification to the fender sheet metal, and the cladding simply applies with included VHB adhesive.

“The LED ‘Entry Light’ features high-output white LEDs which illuminate the area outside of the vehicle for the driver and passengers approaching the vehicle at night,” Hartenstein said. “This convenient feature allows the driver and passengers to identify puddles, potholes, and other hazards when entering and exiting the vehicle. The entry lights are connected to the vehicle’s dome light circuit so the entry lights will activate when the vehicle is unlocked, when the doors open, and can be manually turned on with the factory control knob.”

The LED “Turn Indicator” addresses a potential visibility issue with the US-spec Jeep Wrangler JL and Gladiator models which do not have a clear indicator on the side of the vehicle. This can be hazardous when changing lanes with a vehicle is positioned in the Jeep’s blind spot, and this blind spot is increased substantially on lifted vehicles. By adding a bright amber indicator in a clearly visible position, the Sidetrack provides a needed benefit for lifted Jeeps.

Oracle Lighting Develops Virus Neutralizing UV-Light Face Mask for Consumer / Medical Use

METAIRE, LA (05.15.2020) – Oracle Lighting has revealed details on the new Antimicrobial Irradiation Respirator (aka AIR device), a patent-pending wearable UVGI face mask sanitizer system. The AIR device is expected to be available in late June 2020.

“N95 masks have been the go-to PPE for preventing exposure to COVID-19, but these only filter 95 percent of particulate,” explained Justin Hartenstein, Oracle Lighting director of product development. “Consumers need better assurance to be confident that they will not be exposed. The AIR device will neutralize that remaining five percent while sanitizing the contaminated mask at the same time. Studies have shown that respiratory pathogens on the outer surface of cloth masks can actually result in self-contamination, which is exactly what they are intended to prevent. Because if this, we see the unique UV irritation benefits of the AIR device as the best sanitization scenario for mitigating exposure to COVID-19 and other viruses.”

Existing personal air filtration masks are designed to prevent inhalation of viruses by trapping the particles from the incoming air in the cloth material worn on the face. However, they are not designed to disinfect or sanitize the particles. Because of this, the masks can become saturated with live viruses, pathogens, bacterium, or other microorganisms attached to the fabric surfaces. Because the cloth mask becomes contaminated with use, washing a cloth mask is recommended by health officials. Unfortunately, most consumer-grade laundry detergent does not contain disinfectant and, in fact, studies show that pathogens can actually be spread in the wash and contaminate other laundry in the load.

The AIR device is worn under any common face masks and utilizes a patent-pending system to sanitize the air while simultaneously neutralizing contaminants trapped in the cloth face mask by means of short-wave ultraviolet light exposure. The ultraviolet light source is produced via UV LEDs which are integrated into the device. The spectrum of ultraviolet light is separated into various ranges, with shortest-wavelength referred to as UV-C which is considered “germicidal UV.”

“The AIR device is composed of a small cover made of an anti-microbial polymer which is worn on the face and attached with straps similar to a traditional face mask,” Hartenstein continued. “The user wears a traditional face mask (cloth mask, surgical mask, N95, etc.) over the device. A small rechargeable battery pack powers the device and can be manually turned on and off by the user. In addition to the anti-germicidal LEDs, the device also contains UV-A LEDs which provide a wider light spectrum and visible light. The visible UV-A LED functions as an indicator that the device is on and working but provides minimal anti-microbial benefits.”

Wavelengths between 200-300 nanometers, such as the LEDs utilized in the AIR device, provide the most effective germicidal function. This is because the wavelength of UV-C irradiation utilizes photons to inactivate the virus which prevents the cell from replicating and infecting the body if inhaled. The AIR’s UV-C LED emitters are integrated into the airflow partition of the device which is designed to scrub the air and sterilize the cloth mask simultaneously.

Is it safe?

For years hospitals and labs have used Ultra-Violet light for disinfection and medical sanitation against viruses. Commonly known as “Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation”, UVGI is a disinfection method that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet light to kill or inactivate microorganisms by disrupting their DNA in a manner which renders the cells inactive and unable to perform cellular functions.

“UV-C light has been used in many applications such as the purification of drinking water for decades,” said Hartenstein. “While UV-C is part of the normal spectrum of sunlight, it is invisible and can cause sunburn with direct skin exposure. This was taken into account when developing the AIR and so the UV light is directed into the mask, away from the user, to prevent any direct skin exposure.”

Oracle Lighting Donates Much Needed Personal Protective Equipment to Tulane Medical Center

METAIRE, LA (04.14.2020) – Oracle Lighting has made a donation of 1,000 N95 respirator masks and nearly 500 surgical masks to the Tulane Medical Center in New Orleans to help its staff battle the COVID-19 crisis in Louisiana where Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is much needed.

“We want to do whatever we can to support those medical professionals on the front lines battling this pandemic as New Orleans has been one of the most affected communities in the country,” said Justin Hartenstein, Oracle Lighting director of development. “Oracle Lighting works with several companies outside of the United States and these partners have more available PPE sources than we have here in the U.S. Some of them heard about the struggles that we were having across our country and, specifically, in the New Orleans area with the shortage of masks and other PPE.”

Oracle Lighting CEO Tiffanie Hartenstein and Oracle Lighting Director of Development Justin Hartenstein are pictured outside their Metairie LA company headquarters with the PPE donation for Tulane Medical Center in New Orleans.

Hartenstein explained that many of these suppliers are now helping out by including procured PPE in Oracle Lighting’s inbound shipments so that Hartenstein and his staff can donate to places in need.

“We are now asking all of our suppliers do the same and we have more supplies on the way,” he added. “This is just the first donation that we plan to make. We will continue to import PPE from other countries with available supplies and donate to medical personnel that are struggling to help people with this virus and need adequate PPE made available to them as soon as possible.”

Hartenstein said that after procuring the PPE supplies, Oracle was able to donate the much needed masks to Tulane Medical Center through Supplies for Saints, a group that is managing the collection of PPE for local hospitals.

“Co-founding Supplies for Saints was such a crucial endeavor for us because we realized how important it was to keep our frontlines healthy so they could continue to care and heal those stricken with COVID-19,” said Kelly Becnel Rovetto, co-founder of Supplies for Saints. “These men and women deserve to feel safe that they are not bringing home this virus to their families or contracting it themselves. PPE donations like this make a big difference in the lives of these men and women.”

Hartenstein asked that other companies importing products consider procuring available PPE from their suppliers and donate to those who are in desperate need for adequate protective equipment.

Oracle Lighting Launches New Jeep Wrangler JL Cargo LED Light Module

METAIRE, LA (01.16.2020) – ORACLE Lighting has announced the launch of its new Jeep Wrangler JL Cargo LED Light Module (p/n 5858-023). Now available with an MSRP of $109.95, the new LED light modules are designed for 2018-2020 Jeep Wrangler JL models.

“A Jeep’s factory LED dome light does not provide illumination for the rear cargo area, making it difficult to see at night when accessing cargo,” explained Justin Hartenstein, Oracle Lighting director of development. “The new ORACLE Cargo LED Light Module easily adds bright LED light to the rear hatch area using an existing power source. The plug-and-play design allows you to simply replace the factory wiper motor cover with the new cover using the included parts and plug the adapter into your rear accessory socket. It’s that easy.”

The Cargo LED Light Module’s lights can easily be turned on and off with the flush switches located on the panel. The dual white LED Cargo light function provides ample illumination and the added feature of the emergency flasher makes any road-side issue safer with additional amber flashing lights.

A clear advantage of ORACLE’s unique design is that this was developed to completely replace the factory wiper cover. This molded part features LED lights that are seamlessly integrated into the module for a factory look rather than “stuck-on” LED lights like some aftermarket options.
