Optronics family of four-inch round LED stop, tail, turn, and back-up lamps uses the company’s Light Guide technology, which looks and functions similarly to fiber optics.
Light Guide technology precisely channels LED light to unique shapes and patterns that are not achievable through conventional commercial vehicle lighting. With the introduction of the four-inch round LED stop, tail, turn and back-up lamps, Optronics says it is meeting a trend toward automotive-style lighting for commercial applications.
The distinctive 12-diode lamps have a smoothly lit horizontal, x-shaped feature in the center of the lens, surrounded by a more traditional LED pattern. The repetition of the x-shaped style element across a vehicle’s stop, tail, turn and back-up lamps is designed to create a unique, standout look.
The technology also allows the design engineers of original equipment manufacturers to think outside the box, and to pursue their own lighting visions. The flexibility of Light Guide technology allows symbols, text, and logos to all be potential design features that can be incorporated into future lamps.
The four-inch round LED stop, tail, turn and backup lamps with Light Guide technology will come in flange-mount and grommet-mount versions and are expected to be available in the first quarter of 2018. The lamps can be purchased with standard PL-3 or Weather Tight terminations, allowing them to connect to existing harness systems for easy retrofitting.
