BRIGHT IDEAS: Grote announced new additions to its product line at the Mid-America Trucking Show.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – At this year’s Mid-America Trucking show, Grote announced several additions to its LED product line, including a new LED work lamp.
The Per-Lux LED WhiteLight work lamp has many benefits according to Grote: the light pattern is brighter; it offers colour more closely resembling natural sunlight; and the new lamp features more effective coverage of a desired illuminated area, with multiple beam options.
As a result of these features, the lamp is considered to be safer, and offers a more optimal work environment, even in off-road driving conditions.
“This is a first for the Per-Lux brand,” said Mike Grote, the business development manager for forward lighting at Grote. “Per-Lux is a legendary brand that, until now, only offered lamps in high-powered halogen and incandescent versions.”
The LED WhiteLight work lamp has lower power consumption, according to Grote, with less than an amp of power needed to operate the lamp.
The instant-on nature of its LEDs is also considered to be more energy-efficient than halogen lamps.
The new LED work lamp has a glass lens with a chemical and corrosion-resistant, and heavy-gauge stainless steel housing, which has made the product prominent with the transportation market, according to Grote.
The vehicle lighting company also introduced a new SuperNova LED single-diode back-up lamp, which features Grote’s LED WhiteLight technology. Steve Green, the business development manager for signal lighting, said the product was developed with high output LEDs.
“The advancement in Grote’s LED WhiteLight technology and its related surface mount electronics production systems, have migrated to our SuperNova signal lighting line,” Green said.
The lamps feature standard Grote male pin and hard-shell terminations, which are fully encapsulated in patented specially-formulated potting, which is intended to provide thermal protection as well as corrosion, shock and moisture resistance.
Another addition to the SuperNova line, is the 4″ round and 6″ oval LED stop, tail and turn lamp.
With Grote’s male pin or hardshell terminations, these lamps are considered ideal for fleets that want to upgrade from incandescent lights to LEDs, according to Green.
“It’s a more cost-effective option than has ever been available before.”
In this same announcement, Grote is featuring new additions to its “hi count” LED product line, with what the company considers “ultra-stylish” clear lens lamps.
With the addition of clear lens red and yellow products, a full portfolio of lighting options is now available, according to the lighting company.
The new lamps include: clear lens hi count LED round and oval stop, tail, turn lamps; clear lens hi count LED square corner lamps; and clear lens hi count LED 2″, 2.5″ and rectangular market lamps.
Grote’s new lamps meet all FMVSS 108 and SAE requirements for visibility and safety.
