Peterson Manufacturing has expanded its LumenX LED line with an stop/turn/tail light featuring an integrated back-up lamp.
Dubbed a "cyclops style" by Peterson design engineers, the new model embeds a small white lens within the main red LumenX lens, allowing one of the seven diodes to provide DOT-legal back-up functionality as a 2-in-1 lighting concept.
LumenX Series lights from reds to ambers to back-ups feature white-diode LEDs and optics engineered to fully illuminate the entire lens with no "hot spots" or "dead zones" regardless of viewing angle.
"The idea of integrating a white back-up light into a red lamp was a feasible extension of the LumenX architecture," said John Hansen, project engineer.
Like other models in Peterson's LumenX LED Series, the new two-in-one lights are available in standard 4-inch-round and 6-inch-oval footprints with grommet or flange mounting options. When used in pairs, the two-in-one lights meet DOT requirements in any orientation.
