Optronics has announced it is expanding the availability of its LED Superlamp technology across other commercial vehicle lighting categories.
Until now, the long-lasting and durable lamps have only been provided for stop/tail/turn lamp applications, but the manufacturer and supplier of heavy-duty vehicle lighting is to broaden this out to now also include headlamps, back-up lamps and marker/clearance lamps.
“The introduction of the LED SuperLamp and subsequent adoption of this technology is a testament to its durability, practicality and cost-effectiveness,” Brett Johnson, president and CEO of Optronics International, said. “Moreover, it is an example of the right product at the right time, and one that will take industry lighting to a new level of corrosion protection and electrical system integrity.”
Lamps used on the interior and exterior of commercial vehicles can be exposed to a wide variety of chemicals and environmental conditions, as a result, the patented coating on the LED SuperLamps resists 45 specific chemical agents, including petroleum distillates such as coolant ethylene and coolant propylene, as well as diesel fuel, battery fluid, brake fluid, transmission fluid, organic solvents, methanol, detergents, cleaners and urea. The unique coating is applied to the entire exterior of each SuperLamp, and lenses and housings have been engineered to accept and bond with the coating.
“Lamps using Optronics’ LED SuperLamp technology are currently in pilot programs with numerous OEMs and have recently been selected as standard equipment on Class 8 Peterbilt tractors.
“Their performance has proven to be second to none in both the lab and in the field,” added Johnson.
