Grote Industries says its new single-system and dual-system LED back-up lamps use fewer white LEDs than other models.

Tim Brooks, the firm's director of product development, says, “Grote SuperNova LEDs last up to 100,000 hours — equivalent to the life of the trailer. As a result, fleets can install LED back-up lamps once, then practically forget about them.”

Grote designed both single- and dual-system LED back-up lamps to cover all applications. A trailer designed for a single back-up lamp will use the single system. A trailer with space for two back-up lamps will use the dual system. The single LED back-up lamp emits the same amount of light as two dual-system lamps. Therefore, both systems emit the same amount of light, as mandated by Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.

SuperNova LED single-system (part #62401) and dual-system back-up lamps (part #62391) feature the company's male-pin DoubleSeal electrical connections. This system uses a proprietary O-ring seal that reduces the threat of water leakage into the connector. The firm's “Plug and Go” technology lets fleets retrofit to SuperNova LEDs from their old incandescent lamps in a snap because the connections are the same.
