Optronics International introduced its new HD 500 Series LED stop, tail, turn lamps, the company recently announced.
According to the company, the lamps have lenses with a raised linear focal point in the center that gives them a unique look. Both the four-inch round and six-inch oval lamps are engineered with an 18-diode configuration.
“With the introduction of our new HD 500 Series LED stop, tail, turn lamps, Optronics continues to lead the industry in lamp-styling diversity and choice,” said Brett Johnson, president and CEO. “This is the third new stop, tail, turn lamp option we’ve introduced in just the last 60 days, and it’s a testament to the maturity and competence of our product development capabilities.”
The company added that the new lamps are 264% brighter than the law requires and 15% brighter than Optronics’ standard 10-diode stop, tail, turn lamps.
“Our new HD 500 Series LED stop, tail, turn lamps have more diodes, a more unique optic design and shine more brilliantly than anything else in their price range,” Johnson said. “The look of the new lamps makes them more attention getting, and that’s a great quality for stop, tail, turn lamps.”
All HD 500 Series LED lamps meet FMVSS 108 and SAE photometric requirements for visibility and safety and come with a lifetime warranty, the company said. Lenses and housings are constructed of polycarbonate that is sonically welded, and the lamps are engineered to use solid-state, surface-mount device (SMD) technology that enables their electronics to resist moisture, shock and vibration.
The new lamps are expected to begin shipping on or about Oct. 16, 2015, the company added. The lamps will be available with standard PL-3 and Weather Tight termination and will interface with existing harness systems for easy retrofitting.
“Optronics is continuing to set the pace for new product innovation and introduction among HD vehicle lighting manufacturers,” Johnson said. “And the marketplace is responding, because the new products we’ve introduced in just the last three years represented 20 percent of our overall sales in 2014.”
