LED Lighting Design and Manufacture

With four decades’ experience in LED design and manufacture, Oxley is a specialist in the development of new technology for vehicle and shelter applications. Oxley is a world leader in night vision lighting; the team pioneered the development of infra-red driving lights for military vehicle covert operations on NVGs and led the way with interior LED lighting solutions.

Oxley specialises in the production of LED indicators and interconnect products. The production of EMI filters is a long established area of the business and Oxley has extensive facilities dedicated to the design, prototype and production of discretes, ceramic planar arrays multi-way products for the removal of unwanted electro-magnetic interference from equipment.

LED Lighting

Oxley has developed a wide range of LED lighting for vehicle and shelter applications to replace incandescent and fluorescent lighting in both retrofit and new build projects. The solutions are designed to be robust, rugged and designed with the military user in mind; the lights incorporate EMC compatibility and offer high sealing and high MTBF.

Universal products include combi lights, mini floodlights, and gooseneck lights.

Interior Combi LED Lights

Incorporating three lights in one unit, combi lights have main, blackout and emergency modes. Available in both AC and DC modes, they can be installed in any land platform with customised variations to suit specific requirements.

Mini LED Floodlights

These small, compact LED lights are perfect for illuminating any area in military platforms where space and height is restricted. Available in NVG compatible and normal visible mode, they are perfect for vehicle installations.

Gooseneck LED Lights

The gooseneck light incorporates state-of-the-art LED technology to provide a robust task light designed to meet the toughest military standards. High vibration and shock proof, the gooseneck comes with a secondary colour option, a straight or angled head and NVIS compatibility if required.
