Single-diode lamp outshines incandescents

Grote engineers have developed the company's first single-diode stop/tail/turn lamp. LED lamps offer greater resistance to vibration and the elements than incandescent lamps. Grote SuperNova LED lamps will last the life of a trailer when used in conjunction with the firm's Ultra-Blue-Seal harness system.

With the lens on, the single-diode stop/tail/turn lamp is practically indistinguishable from an incandescent lamp. That means fleets will be able to replace old incandescent lamps with LED counterparts and reap the benefits without changing the appearance of the trailer. Fleets will be able to retrofit gradually rather than all at once. Another advantage is a decrease in theft, since it is less apparent to potential thieves that the lamps are LEDs.
