Peterson’s upsized LED hits the streets Jan. 1

GRANDVIEW, Mo. – If you want something ‘bigger and brighter’ for your trailer, Peterson Manufacturing has just released its single-diode LED clearance/marker/mid-turn lamp.

Designed for heavy-duty trailers, the new model is called the Dot Light XL. The American-made light is intended to ‘solve a complaint by drivers of rigs equipped with other compact LED marker lights of poor visibility due to build-up of diesel soot, road grime and snow pack,’ the company indicated.

“When trailer lights get dirty or snow-packed they appear dimmer,” said Tim Gilbert, Peterson’s director of OEM and heavy-duty fleet sales. “That’s especially true of the small LED marker lights so popular today. The superior optics of our Dot XL offer a brilliant solution: greater visibility plus multi-function versatility.”

Current models feature 3/4” single-diode LED lights sized to mount in the holes of many OEM trailers. Peterson said its engineers nearly doubled the visible surface area of the Dot XL to 1-3/8”, while still fitting the 3/4″ mounting holes.

The lights are lensed in LumenX red or amber and feature rubber grommets for easy mounting.

“Our fleet customers were looking for something bigger and brighter in LED marker lights,” said Gilbert. “Peterson is proud to deliver the solution: the Dot XL – all USA-made and ready to ship January 1, 2016.”
