Optronics International says it's developed the first truly different approach in years to the visual presentation of a stop/tail/turn lamp with the new GloLight Series.
What makes the new lamps visually different is a smoothly illuminated outer band that surrounds a central LED array that remains unlit during standard tail light operation. The dual-function outer ring brightens and the central LED array lights only during stop and turn functions.
The GloLight is the stunning combination of premiere lighting technology meeting world-class styling capabilities, says Brett Johnson, president and CEO of Optronics International.
All the lamps in the new GloLight Series meet all FMVSS 108 and SAE photometric requirements for visibility and safety. The lamps come with a lifetime warranty. Lenses and housings are made of tough polycarbonate material that is sonically welded, and the lamps employ a solid-state, surface-mount device design that protects their electronics against moisture, shock and vibration.
Optronics has leveraged advancements in diode technology and innovative optic design techniques to achieve the diffused outer ring that gives the GloLight its signature look. With their smooth, glowing outer rings and dark centers, the new lamps fundamentally change the appearance of any vehicle.
Lighting is one of the most visibly predominant features on any vehicle, and this is a completely different looking, yet highly-effective light, says Charlie Mudd, president of Vanguard National Trailer Corp.
GloLight 4-inch round and 6-inch oval LED stop/turn/tail lamps will be available in flange-mount and grommet-mount versions and are expected to begin shipping on Feb. 1, 2013. The lamps are available with standard PL-3 and Weather Tight termination options, allowing them to make use of existing harness connections.
