Truck-Lite's new LED Super 44 hard-wired stop/turn/tail lamps are available with integrated wiring connections, offering a choice of five hard-wired adapters. Advancements in high-brightness LED materials, improved optics, and the method for attaching diodes are now mated with integral adapter pigtails, to minimize the number of connection points and decrease the required depth needed to mount the lamps.

Hard-wired and standard Super 44 lamps use a technology that employs an advanced metal substrate for the circuit board. Because this substrate dissipates heat more effectively, the brighter LEDs can be “driven” to a more intense light output without risking damage to the diodes.

Another benefit of the technology is a process called cold clinching. Since heat poses the greatest threat to the life span of the LED diodes, cold clinching eliminates the heat-intensive soldering process found in other LED lamps. Cold clinching connects the discrete diodes to the metal substrate by mechanically and electrically creating a clinch joint. The clinch frame performs the task of a printed circuit board while creating a more reliable lighting product. Overall thickness of the LED's circuitry is reduced, resulting in thinner lamps.
