Oracle Lighting Features New Rear Bumper LED Reverse Lights for Jeep Gladiator JT & JL at 2021 SEMA Expo

METAIRIE, LA (09.23.2021) – Oracle Lighting will feature its new Rear Bumper LED Reverse Lights for Jeep Gladiator JT (p/n 5878-504) during the 2021 SEMA Show, held in Las Vegas, Nev. from Nov. 2-5 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, booth #C20547. Now shipping, these new reverse lights have an MSRP of $149.95 and are also available for Jeep Wrangler JL.

Unsatisfied with the visibility of your Jeep Gladiator reverse lighting when backing up at night? Then replace the factory bumper reflectors with high-output replacement auxiliary LED reverse lights from Oracle Lighting. This reverse light design seamlessly integrates into the bumper reflector area to provide more than 1,500 additional lumens when backing up in a Jeep Gladiator.

“We noticed a consensus of Gladiator owners who had the same problem…complaints of low visibility when backing up at night,” said Justin Hartenstein, Oracle Lighting director of development. “Many tried to supplement with auxiliary lights and light bars which just did not fit, had limited ground clearance, and just looked out-of-place. We immediately saw an opportunity to use our expertise to provide a functional integrated solution.”

Designed for function and durability, these lights feature an aluminum housing with PMMA lens while also maintaining the rear reflector function with a scaled-down version integrated into the housing.

These compact lights pack a big punch with a total of 30 high-powered LEDs to add additional lighting to improve your Jeep Gladiator reverse visibility. They come ready to install out of the box, ensuring that you will have rear visibility in your Jeep Gladiator when it matters. Installation uses factory mounting hardware, and these lights tie into the rear light wiring with the included T-taps or with the optional Plug-and-Play adapter (p/n 5881-504) for even easier installation.

Additional features and specifications include:
• Connects to existing reverse light power source without error code
• Integrated rear reflector for OE appearance and function
• Total of 30 high-powered LEDs with 3,000 raw Lumen output
• Aluminum housing with black powder coat finish
• Optic-focused beam pattern for an extended field of view

Oracle Lighting Continues Youth Engagement Outreach Despite Hurricane Ida Evacuations

METAIRIE, LA (09.21.2021) – Oracle Lighting continues its youth engagement outreach despite Hurricane Ida evacuations.

Anthony Hostetler, an Oracle Lighting industrial designer, was one of many who were evacuated from Louisiana during the recent hurricane. Hostetler took the opportunity to visit his hometown high school of Westview Jr-Sr High School in Topeka, Ind. to speak with an Advanced Drawing class about the automotive design industry.

“Many students have a limited idea of the options they have when entering a creative field, and I welcomed the chance to show them a different avenue of thinking and a unique way to use their artistic talents,” explained Hostetler. “These students were receptive to learning more about how automotive design blends creativity and technical skill.”

Hostetler’s presentation included a day-to-day look at his position with Oracle Lighting and his journey to finding the industry. He also demonstrated standard design processes and technology, including the company’s new 3D scanning system. Before concluding with a question-and-answer session, Hostetler showed students some of the latest projects from Oracle Lighting including custom Deluge D12 hypercar exterior lighting and flush-mount tail lights for the Jeep Gladiator.

“Early exposure to this field is important for those considering a future career in our quickly adapting industry, and these opportunities for youth outreach allow us to foster curiosity in new generations,” continued Hostetler. “Investing time into these students is the first step to helping them to cultivate a mindset of ingenuity and develop their skill set that could later benefit the automotive design industry.”

In August 2021, Hostetler also hosted two local high school students at Oracle Lighting’s Louisiana headquarters for a similar exploratory workshop. These students also had the chance to job-shadow the industrial designer at work.

“We welcome the opportunity to expand our youth engagement programs, and this chance during hurricane evacuations was an unexpected benefit,” noted Justin Hartenstein, Oracle Lighting founder and director of product development. “At Oracle Lighting, we recognize the importance of supporting future innovators and sparking their interest in the automotive market. Planting that seed in young minds is the key to continuing to push our industry forward into the future.”

Oracle Lighting was recently ranked as the third fastest growing company in the entire metro New Orleans area according to New Orleans CityBusiness magazine.

Oracle Lighting has safely re-opened post-hurricane and has resumed normal operations.

Oracle Lighting Announces Illuminated Marine Vessel Signage

METAIRIE, LA (05.04.2021) – Oracle Lighting has launched the new waterproof illuminated marine vessel signage. From yachts to commercial fleets to personal pleasure boats, Oracle Lighting has the custom-built stainless steel LED-illuminated name signs for numerous applications.

“With more than two decades of experience, Oracle Lighting now offers our lighting expertise on many marine products,” explained Justin Hartenstein, Oracle Lighting director of development. “These made-to-order signs are designed to endure the harshest conditions and utilize high quality materials, such as 316L stainless steel to insure years of maintenance-free enjoyment and peace-of-mind. Applications are nearly endless…we’ve even had a manufacturer contact us to make logos for an autonomous marine vessel.”

Oracle Lighting’s designers work with its customers to develop the perfect sign…whether they already have a design or need Oracle Lighting’s assistance developing a professional logo for their vessel. Oracle Lighting also offers a variety of mounting options, LED control options, material thicknesses, and colors.

“Our vessel signage is also designed to be completely waterproof up to the IP68 standard,” Hartenstein continued. “This means that the sign can be completely submerged underwater and still continue to operate without failure. The proprietary sealing method includes redundancies for water intrusion prevention while still providing adequate heat dissipation for the LEDs’ standard operating requirements. By reducing the thermal load, the LED chips perform flawlessly with a lifespan of more than 60,000 hours of continuous use.”

Oracle Lighting’s optional multi-layer designs feature a contrasting center layer, or “accent color” layer, to help the letters have a visual pop even during the day when the lights are off. These layers are held together both with marine-grade 5200 adhesive and mechanically with hardware. Stainless studs, which are attached to the back of the stainless steel beauty plate, are used to sandwich the layers together in specific locations of each letter to insure maximum structural integrity.

“Each project is customized to the client’s needs,” said Hartenstein. “We offer a variety of control systems that can be programmed to provide simple static color light or create colorful patterns and lighting effects. Our ColorSHIFT® LED system can create more than one million color variations to match just about any color a customer wants, and they can control the color and brightness easily and conveniently from a wireless remote, a light control panel, or even from their smartphone or tablet.”

Oracle Lighting Launches Custom Illuminated Logo Decals for Multiple Applications

METAIRIE, LA (04.14.2021) – Oracle Lighting has announced the launch of the new custom illuminated logo decals. Easily installed/applied on cars, trucks, UTVs/ATVs, boats and other vehicles and now available for custom order at oraclelights.com/logos, customers can choose between 31 custom colors and create their own text or utilize their own graphics.

“We first created these decals for race team vehicles that we support so that they would really stand out during nighttime events, and they quickly opened a door to a part of our business that we didn’t even realize was there,” explained Justin Hartenstein, Oracle Lighting director of development. “Before we knew it, fans at these races began calling us asking how they could order them for themselves and their businesses. Now, whether you are a race team, marketing professional, or just an enthusiast who wants to stand out from the crowd, Oracle’s glowing logo panels are an easy way to add that custom attention-grabbing appearance to your vehicle.”

These less than 1mm thick semi-rigid panels can be made in a variety of shapes, colors, and sizes suited to anyone’s precise details. Expected lifetime is 2,500 hours of use under normal operating conditions. They are designed to stand up to most abuse but if used in motorsports or other extreme applications the overall lifespan may be reduced. Custom-made to order, these panels are constructed from an electroluminescent material which glows softly at night. Installed with adhesive tape, each panel comes with a small inverter box which simply connects to 12V power.

“The inverter box conveniently has a switch to turn the panel on and off,” Hartenstein continued. “Installation is very simple; these have an adhesive backing like a normal decal and simply stick in place. Applications are nearly endless… we’ve even had a manufacturer contact us to make logos for an autonomous marine vessel.”

These lights also use the original factory beam angle adjustability for proper light focus on lifted Jeeps.”

Light focus is very important for not only driver safety but others on the road who can potentially have their vision obstructed by glare. “This is especially significant on lifted vehicles where the light source is raised and in a position to interfere with the field of vision of other drivers,” Hartenstein continued. “The new Oculus headlights feature a very sharp cut-off line and focus light with industry-leading precision specifically to avoid such issues.”

Oculus’ LED light source has lower power demands compared to the factory halogen lamps while providing more light output. Oculus features precision Bi-LED projectors for optimum light distribution and beam angle. These seven-inch headlights install in any seven-inch headlight trim ring using original mounting hardware. The Halo DRL features more than 200 bright white LEDs for a vivid lighting impact.

“It is undeniably important to implement proper thermal management tools for high-performance LEDs to operate with reliability in various environments,” Hartenstein concluded. “Oculus utilizes both active and passive cooling methods to sustain low LED temperatures. Remote mounted heat sinks and an internal cooling fans work in conjunction to insure proper temperature control and longevity of the LEDs.”

Additional features and specifications include:

  • Wattage: 36W Each
  • Color Temp: 5500K 
  • Certification: DOT SAE HL VOR 19
  • Warranty period: Two years
  • Multi-national patented design
