Optronics International has debuted a new GloLight Series of 4-in. round and 6-in. oval LED stop, tail, turn lamps.
The GloLight Series uses a smoothly illuminated outer band that surrounds a central LED array that remains unlit during standard tail light operation, the company said. The dual-function outer ring brightens and the central LED array lights only during stop and turn functions.
“The GloLight is the stunning combination of premiere lighting technology meeting world-class styling capabilities,” said Brett Johnson, president & CEO of Optronics. “This is a clear expression of our greatly enhanced product development capabilities.”
All the lamps in the new GloLight Series meet all FMVSS 108 and SAE photometric requirements for visibility and safety.
Lenses and housings are made of tough polycarbonate material that is sonically welded, and the lamps employ a solid-state, surface-mount device (SMD) design that protects their electronics against moisture, shock and vibration.
GloLight Lamps will be available in flange-mount and grommet-mount versions and are expected to begin shipping on Feb. 1, 2013. The lamps are available with standard PL-3 and Weather Tight termination options, allowing them to make use of existing harness connections for installation flexibility and cost effective retrofitting.
“From a visual perspective, nobody has done much to change the round and oval shapes that comprise today’s stop, tail, turn lamps,” said Marcus Hester, director of sales and marketing for Optronics. “The GloLight stands out and changes the way vehicle lighting looks, shifting trends and broadening lighting choices along the way.”
