Optronics International, a leading manufacturer and supplier of heavy-duty LED vehicle lighting, announced today that it plans to make its new LED SuperLamp technology available on a variety of lamp categories, including headlamps, back-up lamps, marker/clearance lamps and work lamps, as well as interior cab and trailer lighting. Until now, Optronics’ LED SuperLamp has only been available as a stop/tail/turn lamp.
Since its introduction in 2015, Optronics’ LED SuperLamp technology has established the industry’s highest standard for lamp longevity and durability. Five years in the making, the LED SuperLamp technology is the result of Optronics focusing its formidable R&D, industrial design, electronics, chemical engineering, state-of-the-art manufacturing and testing capabilities on the task of creating what are arguably the toughest LED lamps in the world.
“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,” Brett Johnson, president and CEO of Optronics International, said. “Their performance has proven to be second to none in both the lab and in the field.”
Lamps used on the interior and exterior of commercial vehicles can be exposed to a wide variety of chemicals and environmental conditions. The patented coating on all 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.
The electronic circuitry inside most LED lamps is vulnerable to ambient factors such as transient voltage, electromagnetic interference (EMI) and electrostatic discharge (ESD). These conditions can occur in, on and around a…
