NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Optronics has introduced a tougher LED lamp design as well as a new anti-theft system.
Both were showcased at the Technology & Maintenance Council meetings. Optronics is the largest offshore vehicle lighting manufacturer and the fastest-growing lighting manufacturer in North America, according to the company.
Its new SuperLamp, designed over two-plus years, offers greater strength and durability.
“With the introduction of our LED SuperLamp Technology, we’ve created a new category of super-tough, super-long-lasting vehicle lamps and we’ve done it at a lower cost than other premium lighting products,” said Brett Johnson, president and CEO of Optronics International. “We believe that the industry deserves better than just small, incremental advancements to lighting, and this represents the type of quantum leap we are committed to delivering.”
The four-inch round LED SuperLamp stop/tail/turn lamp features a specially formulated coating and bonding system to protect its exterior lens and housing as well as additional protection of its internal electrical components. The lamp protects against transient voltage, electromagnetic interference and electrostatic discharge, the company says.
It has been designed to withstand exposure to a wide range of chemicals as well as diesel fuel, battery fluid, brake fluid, detergents and urea.
Optronics also unveiled a new anti-theft system dubbed LampLock. It has been integrated into the company’s four-inch round stop/tail/turn lamp as well as its three-quarter-inch marker lamps. The designs make it impossible to remove the lamps without completely destroying them.
The system is comprised of a specially designed single diode lamp to give the illusion of an incandescent light while offering the benefits of long-lasting LED technology. It also features an integrated anti-theft ring and a foam rubber gasket. Specially designed teeth permanently lock the lamp into place.
