Optronics adds ‘trend-setting’ combo lamp

Sept. 7, 2021
New STL02/03 LED taillight replaces four lamps, providing side marker, rear clearance, license plate illumination, and serving as rear/side deflector

Optronics International recently introduced the STL02/03 LED taillight.

The new low-profile, surface-mount lamps not only take on stop, tail, and turn functions, as well as serving as rear and side clearance and marker lamps and rear and side reflectors, but they also come with a license plate light. Though they fit within the standard footprint for taillights, their unique shape and automotive styling makes them unique, attractive, and functional, the company said.

The lamps also are the first in a new series of lamps that combines even more functionalities, including backup lighting. The STL02/03 LED taillight’s modular design also has been engineered so that it can be configured into novel lighting assemblies that can be customized to meet the preferences of OEMs and fleets.      

“The low-profile, multi-function, surface-mount STL02/03 LED taillight is just the latest in a long line of intelligently designed lighting that consolidate the functionality of multiple lamps into just one,” said Marcus Hester, chief marketing officer for Optronics. “The result is a high-value lighting package that is less expensive than the sum of its functional parts.”

The thin, surface-mount lamps measure 1.25 inches in depth, and can be mounted virtually anywhere regulations allow, Optronics said. The lamps are available with stud mounts that enable installation from the rear, and they can also be mounted from the front, using screws or other fastener methods.

The lamps are compatible with a wide range of vehicle types, including box trucks, bulk haulers, CNG transports, concrete mixers, cranes, dump bodies, fire and rescue, flatbeds, food and beverage, service bodies, and utility and telecom vehicles.

“With the introduction of the STL02/03 LED taillight, Optronics continues its mission to deliver better value, better options and better lighting to the commercial vehicle industry,” Hester said. “Please stay tuned for updates on how this trend-setting modular lamp will keep setting the pace in new configurations in 2022.”

The lamp’s lens and housing are made of tough polycarbonate material that is sealed and waterproof. The lamp employs a solid-state, surface-mount device (SMD) design that protects its electronics against moisture, shock, and vibration. Like all LED products from Optronics, these lamps come with a no-hassle, one-diode lifetime warranty protection that will replace the lamp if even one diode fails, the company added.

The new low-profile, multi-function, surface-mount STL02/03 LED taillights are in stock and available for shipping now. The upcoming modular iterations with backup functions and additional lens options are expected in the first quarter of 2022.
