TULSA, Okla. — Optronics revealed several new 4-inch round and 6 inch oval LED stop, tail and turn lights today.
According to the company, the lamps employ a newly engineered method of light delivery that looks and works unlike anything else in the vehicle lighting marketplace. Light Guide technology allows LED light to be transmitted from one location in the lamp to another and enables the illumination of complex shapes and patterns. Using optical principles reminiscent of fiber-optic technology, Light Guide uses clear, shaped, polymer cylinders that guide and project the LED light in very specific ways.
“The response from OEM and fleets has been enthusiastic,” Brett Johnson, president and CEO of Optronics International, said. “OEMs see how lighting can overtly distinguish their products from those of their competitors, and fleets see the lighting as an extension of their brand image. We also believe that independent owner-operators will love the high-style look.”
“Lighting can completely change the way a vehicle looks and nothing else looks like these new lamps,” added Marcus Hester, vice-president of sales and marketing for Optronics International. “Nobody else in the industry has brought this level of optical sophistication to LED stop, tail, turn lamps.”
New 4-inch round and 6-inch oval LED stop, tail, turn and backup lamps with Light Guide technology will be available in flange-mount and grommet-mount versions and are expected to be available in the first quarter of 2017. The lamps will be available with standard PL-3 and Weather Tight termination options, enabling them to connect to existing harness connections for easy retrofitting.
The new lamps are targeting the heavy-duty trailer, light-duty trailer, RV, transit and marine markets Optronics currently serves. Part numbers include STL603RB and STL602RB with red lenses and BUL603CB and BUL602CB with clear lenses. Optronics products are available in the U.S. and Canada through the company’s extensive distribution network of more than 12,000 convenient distribution locations.
