Optronics International has introduced the Fusion Thinline surface-mount LED combination stop, tail, turn, and backup lamp.
The company says it is the first to combine stop, tail, turn and backup functions into a common bar light format, named for its long, thin configuration. Fusion lamps are already available in four-inch round and six-inch oval formats with grommet and flange mount versions.
At 20.5 inches long, one inch wide and three-quarter-of-an-inch thick, Fusion Thinline surface-mount LED combination stop, tail, turn, and backup lamps can be mounted nearly anywhere on a vehicle, including vehicle body panels, frame posts, docking plates, or gussets.
The low-profile surface-mount design hugs the vehicle surface, and lets users avoid cutting large mounting holes that can reduce structural integrity and promote corrosion.
Wiring for the Fusion Thinline requires only one half-inch hole and two small mounting holes for either rivets or screws. Damaged lamps can be rewired and replaced easily, according to Optronics.
The lamps meet all FMVSS 108 photometric requirements for visibility and safety. Lenses and housings are made of a polycarbonate material that is sonically welded. The lamps employ a solid-state, surface-mount device design that protects the electronics against moisture, shock, and vibration.
All Fusion lamps come with one-diode lifetime warranty protection that will replace the lamp if even one diode fails. The new Fusion LED combination stop, tail, turn and backup lamps, part number STL264RB, are expected to begin shipping in early spring 2017.
